How does one decide?!

I'm hooked. I've gotta admit it. Not terribly hooked - it's not an addiction or anything. But I definitely enjoy blog surfing. Our family blog has been in existence for awhile now - ever since our grand entrance into the US of A. But as much as we've enjoyed Multiply...I've developed a taste for a post with pictures...no photo albums...just a little story with a picture or two attached, to give the reader that nice little visual and a feeling of "I see! Oh how nice". Enter blogger.com, and my new blog, .altogether persuaded.

What am I persuaded of? Well...a lot of things. But the inspiration for the title came from a sermon a couple weeks ago, when Paul "almost persuaded" King Agripa to become a Christian. Our minister emphasized that we must be "altogether persuaded", and the phrase stuck. But then I also discovered that the KJV translates Romans 8:38-39 using the word persuaded, and I am most certainly altogether persuaded that "...neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord." Isn't that incredible? Death nor life will separate us from his love, in Christ Jesus.

So that is where my title came from. It took me forever and a day to finally decide on it. If you ask my husband, he'll freely tell you that I take a long, long time to make decisions. He's not the biggest fan of taking me through the McDonald's drive-thru because I take 10 minutes to decide what I want and infuriate everyone behind us. (I don't think it's quite that bad, but he'd be the one telling the story, and that's the story you'd get!) But what I'd like to know is if every other blogger out there had the same problem? Was it a battle of the creative mind to come up with THE perfect title?! Or am I really just kinda weird that way?


  1. Jen, I think the difficulty in making decisions comes from the creative minds, as I share the same struggle. Sometimes finding just the perfect thing, according to how we invision it to be, can be the most challenging. Love the blg so far! Looking forward to seeing some more of your work! :)

  2. Hi. The name is perfect, the contents great, and the indecision you got from youre Mother. Da Br

  3. Jen, I think the title is wonderfully perfectly suited to you and your life ... being altogether persuaded to be whom the LORD made you to be is a wonderful thing! and you daily express that! I am thankful to be considered your friend!

    the site sounds like it is going to be a great extension of your "multiply" site ... welcome to blogspot! :) I will be one of your faithful readers ... you're in my RSS feed, so each time you update, i'm made aware of that!

    give your beautiful daughter a kiss... and tell your husband to give you a hug from me! :)

    love ya, miss you and our late nite chats!
