{Sponsor Spotlight} Laura from Our Reflection

One of our featured sponsors this month is Laura from Our Reflection. I asked her to share a guest post with you all. I know you will enjoy hearing from her!
Is a blog name really “that” important? 
Should you completely stress yourself out over it? 
I guess I answered yes to both these questions because that’s what I did. For weeks. Seriously. If I was going to jump into the world of blogging, I wanted our name to reflect who we really were. I came up with a list of at least a dozen possibilities but they had already been taken. I was literally beating myself up with why couldn’t I come up with a simple blog name. Then it hit me. “I” can’t do anything on my own. I needed to take the advise I’m constantly giving to others, step back and pray about it. And that’s exactly what I did.

God knew my thoughts. I didn’t need to do a hour long prayer with “thees” and “thous” for God to understand what I was trying to say. I simply asked God to use me as a disciple for His will. To be someone who would help spread His word though my blog. Not being someone throwing a Bible at you, but by leading by example. My husband and I are in a couple Bibles study and one night when he was speaking about how husbands should treat their wives, he turned at looked directly into my eyes and said, “When I look at my wife, I see Jesus face transparent before hers. There is nothing I wouldn’t say or do to her, that I wouldn’t say directly to Him.”

I was breathless. So beautifully said, I was bit in awe My husband is an amazing, admirable man. I rehearsed in my mind, over and over those words he spoke to me that night. My husband is the reflection of a mighty and faithful servant. That was it! That’s how I wanted our family to be known, as faithful servants. And to be this, we needed to live in His reflection. That’s how our little blog came to life. I made my news years goal and on January 1, 2012, Our Reflection came to life. I have my weekly link up parties but I’m now focusing more on posting what’s in my heart. What we can do to make a difference in the lives of others. What we can do to live in His reflection. I hope you found this encouraging. I would love to hear your stories of how God’s working in your life. Come drop by and say hi.
