5 Minutes for Mom – Ultimate Blog Party

I originally learned about this Ultimate Blog Party #UBP14 because I was trying to submit some Tyndale books for review on 5 Minutes for Mom. Once I looked at all the amazing prizes being offered (including a little collection from Tyndale!), I wanted to join the party myself for the chance to win some of those great prizes! So for those of you who stumbled upon this blog from the Ultimate Blog Party, welcome! πŸ™‚ My name is Christy and I’m a wife, new mom to a 15 week baby boy named Jaylen, a pug mom to Chloe, a book publicist at Tyndale House Publishers, and an active member at my church. I enjoy running, but am working to rebuild my base after not running nearly as much during and after pregnancy. I also love reading, music, and horseback riding.

On this blog, I write about my life–so that’s anything from marriage, pugs, motherhood, faith, and running. There’s a little youth ministry thrown in there too from my former days as a youth leader. Hope you enjoy it!

I’m excited to connect with other moms and “party-goers,” so feel free to leave a comment or connect with me on Twitter!

This is our little family

    Glad to meet you, Christy, via UBP14! Congrats on your new baby (it’s the best!), and good luck getting going with running again. I like your cover photo, too; our husbands have the same wedding band. πŸ™‚

      Thanks, Heidi! Nice to meet you too. My baby sure wanted to be snuggle today (nice, but didn’t help when I needed to get work done). He definitely makes my life better though. πŸ™‚

    I just found your blog because of the UPB14. I love the photos of your pregnancy (so fun to document that beginning!) and your darling baby. I look forward to reading your posts, as they look interesting too. I hope you will stop in for a visit to β€œthe most – – of every moment” and say hi.
