Like a Cupcake

One day my mentor asked me a question that caught me off guard. 
She asked "Who are you?" My immediate answer was "I'm a wife and momma." 
She asked it again this way, "Who are you first?" I, of course, realized that I hadn't really thought about it that way and answered " I am a child of God." 
For you are all children of God through faith in Christ Jesus.
Galatians 3:26
The more I thought it about it after our conversation that day, 
I had the thought that who I am is a lot like a cupcake.
The cake part is the base of the cupcake. 
Being a child of God is my foundation. 
The icing on top of the cake makes the cake even sweeter. 
Being a wife and momma is like that - sweet.
Then there's the sprinkles. 
For me the sprinkles are the extra blessings like 
serving in children's ministry and leading a Bible study for mommas.
Makes me look at who I am in a whole new way today. 
Do you know who you are first? 
Have a cupcake and take some time to think about it.


  1. Wow this is such a very well written post that has really impacted me. My mind is now turning to see who am I? This is awesome, I just love this so much and I am glad I found you through Barbie! She is so awesome. I am on her blog today if you would like to say hi!


  2. I'd like to think my foundation is the same as yours. :)

    Thank you for the cupcake and the cupcake for thought as well. (;

  3. That was a great post, Wendy! Very nice comparison. Also helped me reevaluate whether I am truly living my life for Christ or not!

    Thanks! :)
