It’s just who I am

Christmas 2018

Hi there and welcome to #Raising3Rushes (and sometimes a 4th) in a perfect sinful world! I am so excited you stopped by. I am Bethany but can sometimes be referred to as Mom, Babe, Honey, Momma, Mrs. Brush . . . the nicknames are limitless. And honestly, I adore them all. Mrs. Brush is what my students like to call me. It’s a little less formal that Mrs. Rush and it really does fit me to a tee as I am a Registered Dental Hygienist by degree. I am a first year high school instructor attempting to pave the way in teaching high school seniors in dental assisting! Oh my poor students!

I’m just your down to earth, homegrown Louisiana girl that’s been living a big Texas life since Fall 2011. My husband, Craig, and I married June 2006, a day before our one year anniversary of dating and just a couple of weeks longer than the amount of time we had known each other. When it’s meant to be, it’s just meant to be. We met is Natchitoches, Louisiana (my hometown) and moved to Ruston, LA once we married. While in Ruston I practiced in a few private dental offices and Craig managed a large high end furniture store. Life was good but it was oh so boring. Boring because we attempted to do it all on our own! That is, until Jesus turned our world upside down!

I’ll spare you ALL of the details and instead link you to my first blog that I started years ago. If interested in reading more, go to http://www.raisingrushes.blogspot.com.

That blog was my first blog and was started before we ended up with three kids in three years!!! We are well aware of how that occurs. What can I say, my husband was a seminary student and after trying for several years I sure wasn’t going to change anything until I knew my quiver was full!

Jesus is my Savior! He is my everything. Next comes my man Craig and then our 3Rushes. They are all E names (yes I know, its corny and was not what we set out to do but it happened)! All family names and classic ones at that. Elliott is our sports loving 8 year son, Evelyn is our 6 year old girly tumbling princess, and Everett is our 4 year old fireball who thinks he is as big and old as the other two! All three are strong willed, independent and stubborn children who love life to the fullest! They get ALL OF THAT AND MORE honestly and it’s not just from one side or the other!

Most of the time my filter is missing and my husband is a pastor! This makes for a fun and interesting combination. Stick around long enough and you will understand what that fully means! I am by no means an expert on much of anything, but I do strive to live a life on mission with God daily all while raising 3 little Rushes who are growing in their knowledge and love for the Lord. My hope is that you enjoy your time at #raising3rushes (andsometimesa4th) and that it brings you laughter, encouragement, and draws you a little bit closer to the creator of the universe! That you find nuggets of truth that can be easily added into your daily walks and maybe even used on the little people the Lord has entrusted to you. He loves you (and them) to infinity and beyond and truth is, we do live in a perfect sinful world!
