Why this blog

Hi! Welcome to my blog, my name is Ursula Rodriguez and I’m a homeschool mama to 4 amazing and creative kids. I’m a blessed and grateful wife, and I am happy you are here visiting my blog.

Some time ago (about 6 years ago), I had the desire to start a blog and I almost did, I created an account with WordPress and that was it.  I got busier, had my 4th child, and was homeschooling my kids. Time passed, things changed and I forgot about it (fear had a little bit of blame too, which I will talk in future posts).  Recently I was talking with a friend of mine who creates websites for companies and after having a good conversation about what she does and our homeschool lives, I thought maybe I should start my blog.   So with a little bit of her knowledge and help I was able to customized my blog and now here I am, writing my second post!!

The reason I wanted start my blog 6 years ago and now are the same. I wanted a blog because I wanted to share my walk with Christ in everything I do, my walk as a mom and homemaker, the books I read and the books I read to my children, my homeschooling adventures, the love for creating things with my hands and to document my days as a stay at home mom. I want to humbly be an inspiration to women and be inspired by them too. My life is not perfect, my kids are not perfect, my house is not perfect, and it is not about sharing perfection because I am not perfect, I need God everyday of my life. My life is centered in Christ because He is perfect.

My dreams are many but my true passion is to share the love and grace of God through this blog. I hope you enjoy being here.

The Name Lana and Lino

The Name Lana and Lino

The name Lana and Lino comes from the book of Proverbs found in the Bible. Two words in Spanish that literally means Wool and Linen.

I wanted a name to represent my faith and what I do and use for my handmade business, and searching in the Bible I found exactly what I was looking for. Here is what it says:

Proverbs 31:10-31 The Wife Of Noble Character

10 A wife of noble character who can find?
She is worth far more than rubies.
11 Her husband has full confidence in her
and lacks nothing of value.
12 She brings him good, not harm,
all the days of her life.
13 She selects WOOL AND FLAX  (Flax: The textile made from flax known as linen)
and works with eager hands.
14 She is like the merchant ships,
bringing her food from afar.
15 She gets up while it is still night;
she provides food for her family
and portions for her female servants.
16 She considers a field and buys it;
out of her earnings she plants a vineyard.
17 She sets about her work vigorously;
her arms are strong for her tasks.
18 She sees that her trading is profitable,
and her lamp does not go out at night.
19 In her hand she holds the distaff
and grasps the spindle with her fingers.
20 She opens her arms to the poor
and extends her hands to the needy.
21 When it snows, she has no fear for her household;
for all of them are clothed in scarlet.
22 She makes coverings for her bed;
she is clothed in fine linen and purple.
23 Her husband is respected at the city gate,
where he takes his seat among the elders of the land.
24 She makes linen garments and sells them,
and supplies the merchants with sashes.
25 She is clothed with strength and dignity;
she can laugh at the days to come.
26 She speaks with wisdom,
and faithful instruction is on her tongue.
27 She watches over the affairs of her household
and does not eat the bread of idleness.
28 Her children arise and call her blessed;
her husband also, and he praises her:
29 “Many women do noble things,
but you surpass them all.”
30 Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
31 Honor her for all that her hands have done,
and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.
