I am not a writer!

Breaking News...Joy Adams is not a writer.

As I was trying to figure out how the whole blogging thing worked my husband saw me deep in thought struggling to figure out the blogger tools. With shock he said "YOU are starting a blog?" I simply answered him with a "yep." He then asked "Why?" I had no answer. I had NO answer. Why was is it that I have had such an urge to write? Why have I had this burning passion to tell my stories. Is it because I think I am so special and I will have so many answers to help people...nope. Is it because I have such an incredible vocabulary and will amaze people with my perfect grammar...keep reading and you will see that won't be true. Is it because I am a world traveler and have led such an amazing life that everyone will want to hear about me...truthfully I have never been out of the USA. Why now at 36 years old would I feel this desire?

I think I know....

For the first time in my life I feel that what I have to say matters. I know it will not be earth shattering. I know that it probably won't solve poverty or cure disease. It may even annoy some people. Yet, in my soul I have figured out that what I have to say no matter how profound or simple has value. That is why I want to write!


  1. Welcome to the Blogosphere! I consider myself a writer and I struggled with the same things. It seems a little narcissitic to think that my life, my stories, my thoughts are so important that anyone would want to read them. But as I have been blogging for about three years now and have been more consistent in the last six months I have found that if your heart is open God will use your words regardless of whether they are profound, simple, spelled correctly or even grammatically correct.

    Sometimes the most simple post or mundane experience will speak to a reader and in that moment you will know why God has put blogging on your heart.

    I can't wait to read what you have to say :-)
