My Name Is….

So, I’ve always wanted to start a blog. I’ve toyed with the idea several times. I’ve even started a couple, and I think I made two posts on each of them. I figured it would search the internet on how to start a blog. Step one: create a wordpress account….that seemed too complicated. Since I’m a google girl, I just wiped my old blog out on blogger, and here we are. Step two: Title your blog. I look up my previous blog name: “Hannah Mae Thompson”. Yup, that should work! Step three: Narrow down the subject of your blog. Don’t just write about whatever you want. Hhhmmm. See, that doesn’t work for me. Can that idea. I’m writing about whatever’s on my mind. I know, I know. I’m such a blogging rebel!
So, now that I’m clearly set up for success in the blogging world, let me introduce myself. My name is Hannah Mae Thompson, and first and foremost, when all else passes away, I will always be a daughter of the King of Kings! This is the most important relationship in my life! God has been faithful to me in ways I never expected, and I am loving life walking in relationship with my Heavenly Father!
Next, I am the wife on an amazing man! I am so proud of who he is, and all that he has accomplished, so I’ll try to keep this section short. He is a veteran of the Afghanistan and Iraq wars. He has given 12 years to the military, and I am so proud of everything he has done for our country! He’s also a super talented worshiper. His music makes, even the angels, sing! He’s a wonderful father to our children. He has a heart for God that just resonates in everything that he says and does! I can’t believe that God gave him to me!
I am also the mom to 5 amazingly energetic kids! They are so special in their own ways! Currently, their ages range from 2-11. They always keep life interesting, and I am so excited to see how they are growing in the Lord. They are experiencing things with God, that I didn’t experience at their age. I’m so excited to see how that shapes their lives! I also homeschool them….so we are together ALL the time! I wouldn’t trade this opportunity for the world!
Beyond all that, I’m just trying to figure this thing out. Recently, over the past five years, my relationship with God has gone to a whole new level. Because of that I am growing in His love daily. He has reawakened my passions and desires, that had been buried in the graveyard of hurts and broken dreams. I still can’t believe how alive I feel now! So, I’m just trying to figure this thing out. I have always felt a call to ministry. I just don’t know what exactly that looks like yet. I know I have a passion for love, identity in Christ, women, the church, biblical gender equality, worship, arts, marriage restoration, the military, and deliverance. I know that’s not an exhaustive list, but it’s the ones on the top of my head.

So, now that you know a little bit about me, I invite you to join me on this raw and uncut version of….well….whatever this is, and ends up being! Welcome to my life!
