Why Seasons with Soul?

Why Seasons with Soul?

For those of you just finding your way here today, on re-launch day, I thought I’d let you know a little about me and the blog.

I started Seasons with Soul because I’m on a personal journey toward more intentional living that I’d like to share with you.

While I’m still figuring it all out (and probably always will be), intentional living looks something like this for me:

Choosing to live and love in  harmony with God’s will and my life priorities.

Choosing reflective over reactive.

Choosing creative over fastidious.

I’m choosing to live in season. Choosing to do what’s right in this stage, or season, of my life, as Ecclesiastes 3:1 says. Choosing to jump in a pile of leaves with my kids, over organizing my basement. Choosing to blow bubbles with my two-year-old over doing dishes.

I’m passionate about seasonal living and celebrating the beauty of God’s world. I talk about my childhood growing up on a small farm in Southeastern Ohio in my first post, back in August, and how each season had its own charm and how we reveled in it. Now, I share my love of nature in each season with my own family. We’re avid cooks, gardeners, hikers, crafters, and photographers, and we can’t wait to share our adventures with you.

Blessings,
Elizabeth

  1. A woman after my own heart! I look forward to seeing what you do in your sweet corner of the Internet. I love how you say you are CHOOSING. What a great reminder!

  2. I love to hear another person loves the seasons like I do, and Ecclesiastes is my favorite book in the bible. For everything there is a time and everything a season….
    the most beautiful words.
    Thanks for stopping by my blog. You are always welcome.

    Hello Elizabeth,
    My friend Kel Rohlf from Nourishment for the Soul sent me over for a visit. Congratulations upon your blog relaunch! It looks wonderful!! Congratulations! This is quite an exciting undertaking for you Elizabeth, because God is the God of new beginnings, relaunches, fresh starts, and clean slates. You have a tabula rasa here on which to etch new thoughts, explore new horizons, and cultivate new seasons. I definitely resonate with you about seasons! My first book was titled Seasons of a Woman’s Heart. Here’s what I said: “Like colorful greeting cards, seasons are God’s cyclical salutations that brighten or comfort our days. We find their repetition reassuring. After a long winter, we are encouraged to know that spring, indeed, will return. We find their variety stimulating, surprising us with the brilliance of organge-flamed leaves or soft-shawling snow, draping bare branches. As women, we recognize other seasons–internal seasons–spiritual seasons. Sometimes, soothing, sometimes stormy, but always sacred, these are seasons of a woman’s heart.” I shall enjoy coming back to be enriched by your thoughts and to the God who will give you wisdom at every turn, in season and out. You are on the brink of something special, I think! Again, congratulations and all God’s best!
