Blog Party!

Since writing more than just the regular updates on our family blog, Beckwith's Big Adventure and starting this one last summer as my own, I really have had my mind opened to a whole different world! It seems that there are even blogging parties and so here I am joining my first, the 2012 Ultimate Blog Party from

I'm a Brit mummy and an MAF UK missionary, living in small-town America at the moment and heading to East Africa when our time is done here ... later on this year! My husband, Mark is training here at MMS Aviation to become an aircraft engineer so he can fix the small planes that do medivacs and fly in aid and volunteers to disaster zones in the developing world. I also have two little munchkins who take up the majority of my time at the moment, Abigail born in 2008 in the UK and Naomi born in 2011 in the USA.

I started 'The Missionary Mum' as there were lots of things I found that I didn't get to write about in our other blog and that might be of interest or helpful to other mum's or those on mission or thinking about it. I have really enjoyed it so far ... a little something for me! I write three times a week about all kinds of things from the mundane to the milestones of parenting, living life across cultures and with language differences (even from the UK to the USA!!), missionaries, family favourite recipes, great books I've read ... and lots more. 

I have really enjoyed getting to know and learning from other mum's all over the world who are also passionate about their families, faith and missions. I still have so much to learn ... but here is my blog party entry and I look forward to getting to know more like-minded mum's as a result! (Normal blogging will resume on Friday!!!)


  1. You have an exciting adventure ahead...what a great idea to record some of your thoughts that can be helpful to others. I found you via UBP, and I pray your blogging will be blessed. If you'd like to meet me, my UBP introduction page is here:

  2. The UBP is a highlight of my blogging year, and I'm so glad that you've linked up this year!! I look forward to getting to know you better in the months to come.

  3. Dropping by from the UBP. So nice to meet you! Do y'all know where in East Africa you'll be? I'm leaving shortly to head back to Uganda for 6 months & I'll hopefully be heading back in 2013 for longer term (at least 2 years, but my heart is there, so probably much longer). I'll be following your blog!
