Back in Action!

Life in the Valley doesn't really look that much different, but I've made several changes:
  • Pages (the horizontal list just below the title header) have been edited and added above; check them out!
  • My friends' blogs have been moved to Google Reader, leaving a short list of gems I read for encouragement and/or to keep me grounded (scroll down the column on the right.)
  • I've added ways you can more easily know when there's a new post  (subscribe via email or an RSS feed or through Facebook, also in column on the right.)
  • Coming soon: My friend Hilary is working to create a new header graphic for me.  I think this is super cool!

Feel free to give me feedback about the formatting, things that you love or hate or think are missing, or anything else that comes to mind.  I'm open to suggestions!  Thank you if you've been praying for me over the month.  I'm very grateful.

Now, with all of these little details I've wanted to deal with for quite a while all addressed, I can return to focusing on content.  I'd like this blog to be a place of respite for sinners like me, where we look to God's Word to speak into our lives practically, letting the Gospel soak into the fibers of our being.

To that end, let me direct you to last year's February 1st post.

I'm so glad to be "back."  I didn't completely quit blogging during January, over the next couple of weeks you'll be able to read posts I wrote or started during that time.  I wonder how baby girl will influence the content on this blog in the coming year.  You'll just have to stay tuned to find out!  (As soon as I can after she's here, I'll post pictures.)


  1. Glad you're back friend! Hope you are feeling and well and getting excited for a new person in your life. :)

  2. Heather, the blog looks amazing! I'm very impressed with how organized the layout is and how clean and focused the content on those subpages is. I know how hard that is! Well done, I'm proud of you!
