Whether you are a missionary across seas, a stay at home mom, or a teacher at an inner city school, you have a ministry. You have a calling from God to share the Gospel in whatever season of life you find yourself in. Mommy you have a message to share.
At Christian Mommy Blogger it is our deepest desire to educate, encourage and energize your eMinistry. We long to strengthen you in the Lord and help you find your voice so you can better sing His praises.
We provide technical know-how combined with a Biblical foundation. We will teach you how to track your stats, get started in WordPress, install plug-ins, and more. We want it to be impossible for you to NOT think about God, even when struggling with WordPress and code!
We encourage you to use your platform for the Gospel! The Great Commission follows us everywhere. We are to go to the ends of the earth proclaiming the Gospel. We will provide you with encouragement to pursue your passion, hone your writing skills, develop a niche for your ministry, and more. We want you to use the tools available (the Internet) and let your at-home ministry as mothers overflow into your online ministry.
As a mommy, you likely feel isolated in your role. This is where we inspire you to implement God in every facet of your life, both online and face-to-face. More ministry. More love. More teaching and encouraging. Less gossip, negativity, and complaining. As women we have to work hard to stay focused and not get jealous or compare ourselves to others. We want to energize you to dig deep in the Word and start growing your platform for Jesus!

How it started:
I (Nikki) originally started this site as a way to share my recipes, homemaking tips, gardening tips, mommy advice and so on. I loved sharing but I began to feel as though I didn’t have fresh information. I wanted to talk about two things: 1) my marriage and what God was doing in my life and 2) how I approached this whole “online ministry” thing.
You see, it didn’t start out as a ministry. It started out as me. Me. Me. Me. Sharing my thoughts, my processes, my heart.
I had to separate my God-time and my writing time. Why? Why should the two fall apart from each other? Though I am clearly a follower of Christ and write of Him often, I wanted to do more. I wanted to make it clear that it is impossible to NOT think about Him. This is where my path with Leigh Ann continued to cross. She was already doing this. I wanted to do this. But I didn’t want to give up my baby, CMB. It had all my thoughts and so much of the style and design of a blog that I love.
Refer back up to my two things I desired most to talk about. Notice number 2? I didn’t have a place to write about the whole online ministry process. Step by step what I have learned and how to balance it all.
Thank the Lord, Leigh Ann had been praying for me. Praying that the Lord might bring us together to minister to women as one. Two women saved by His never ending grace. Two hearts to serve Him eagerly. And now, two sites to equip you. One to minister to your heart and one to minister to your, well, ministry.
The Lord tugged and I realized we had no choice but to join forces. Leigh Ann and I are wonderfully balanced and just happen to enjoy very different tasks of running a company. Together we are able to accomplish much more. And the Lord will continue to use us as we continue to seek Him first, before all else.
Don’t worry, all my old CMB content is still here and you can still search for any recipes and tips you would like to explore. But now, the direction of the site has changed, and it is very, very exciting, my Friend.
