Wednesday’s Words {intro}

Hey Friends! 

I can’t tell you how excited I am about today! 

Since I started this blog I knew I wanted to be a part of community. I had no idea what God had in store but over the past year I have met so many great women, been convicted, encouraged, & loved on. This community of bloggers is way more than just people we read about – each of you are friends & sisters. 

Today is another perfect example of fostering those relationships & building this body of believers. I have come alongside Martha Kate from Seasons with the Strattons to introduce Wednesday’s Words.

For all the details on this weekly link-up, discussion topics, & information to become a co-host, click here or the button in the right column!

Since we are all new here, Martha Kate & I decided this would be the perfect time for introductions! 


In addition to the two of us as your hostesses, we will also have a co-host each link-up! We are so excited to introduce you to our first co-host – Anna! I absolutely love reading Anna’s blog, and I know you will too! So be sure to go check Park Avenue out!

“I started blogging in 2011 to document my upcoming wedding and move to a new city. Since then, a lot has changed for me and my husband, Chris. I wanted a new, fresh space to share my thoughts, recipes, home decor, travel photos, my faith, and all the little things in between. Park Avenue has become my creative outlet, and I hope you will follow along!’


That’s Martha Kate & her sweet husband there on the left! She’s introducing herself here – so don’t miss it!

As for me (the red head on the right if there was ever a question), my name is Jenni Frank & I created Frankly My Dear three years ago as an outlet for my writing. I have to be honest here, I was NOT serious about blogging then & it wasn’t until October of last year (2013) that the Lord gave me a heart & mission for this little space.

I’ve been a Christian since I was a freshman in college & since then I have been through some beautiful mountain tops and extremely rugged valleys. Originally raised in Kentucky, I was born & raised in the Bible Belt. Christianity came as natural to me as sunshine & southern accents. It wasn’t until college I realized that I was truly the one in the center of my own heart – not Jesus. It was really difficult for me to grasp that, but God revealed to me what a relationship & direction from Him really looks like.

A little bit more about me – I am married to handsome southern man named Luke. We had a May wedding two years ago & it was my absolute dream. I still haven’t blogged it – here’s to hoping! ha! We don’t have kids yet but we do have a 1.5 year old English Bulldog who, quite frankly, thinks he is the human. 

My favorite things in life are days by the pool, fall bonfires, the color pink, & antique shopping. I am a huge creative & if I set my mind to it, I am sure I can make it! I have an Etsy shop here & love creating personalized items for customers. I am a member of the Influence Network & enjoy it more than words can express. 

My mission in life is to know Jesus & make him known. Right now he is teaching me some interesting things. Priorities in my life seem to be shifting & I think the biggest things I am learning is that my life is not my own & focusing on what really matters is. Kingdom living is not easy & that’s where I am trying to find my footing. 

Again, I am so grateful that you are here & honestly cannot wait to get to know each of you too. God has brought us together for a reason & I can’t wait to see his faithfulness!

Now it’s YOUR turn to share!

We are so pumped that you are joining us for Wednesday’s Words! There is nothing better than building community & we can’t wait to dive in together!
