Greetings friends; welcome to Faith&Composition! I’m Shalene, and this is where I muse on gracious homemaking, intentional mothering and inspired living. Sharing honest authenticity and a heaping does of grace, I talk about the gritty and the glorious moments of motherhood. Because being a mother has been my hardest task and yet my greatest joy. If anyone had told me how I would feel the first time they laid my firstborn atop my chest, I would’ve scarcely believed them. Yet six years and three kids later, I’m still marveling at this beautiful mystery of motherhood!
You’ll find those motherhood musings and so much more here in this space, so come in and take a look around. You may want to start with these top ten posts, in order of their popularity:
