A Life That Counts

Ah, I started out this New Year with all these resolutions.  One was that I would blog so many times per month.  Well, look at me:  it's only April, the year is a quarter of the year over, and I haven't keep that resolution, now have I?  What about you?  How are your New Year's resolutions coming along?  Sometimes I feel like I get sidetracked:  life gets so busy.  I'm busy chasing kids, planning homeschool lessons, planning next year's curriculum, doing laundry, or wiping dust off of everything.

Great Valentine's Day Idea

If you need a great Valentine's Day idea for a friend or if you'd like to let your husband know a way to bless you personally on Valentine's Day, see this great suggestion from Money Saving Mom regarding her newest book, Say Goodbye to Survival Mode.

Timely Advice not only escapes me, but it actually seems to run from me sometimes...literally RUN.  Any other SAHMs out there feel that way? Seriously, I have every single modern convenience available to the modern homemaker to make my life easier, simpler, and what do those things actually do? Well, for starters, they clutter up my home. Clutter equals more dust. Dust equals more cleaning...which equals (you guessed it!) more of my time running away from me.  

Reforming Social Media

When I first heard that Mandy, one of my Facebook friends and a friend of several of my friends, was going to write a book called Reforming Social Media, I was thrilled!  When I had the opportunity to be part of her launch team, I was even more thrilled. When I actually sat down and read her book...I just sighed. This, my readers, is a breath of fresh air...something we all need to read, to think about, to reflect upon.

Say Goodbye to Survival Mode

I am so excited about Money Saving Mom's (Crystal Paine) new book:  Say Goodbye to Survival Mode.  More information to come, but check this out:

Book Review: Adventure Bible Storybook (Deluxe Edition)

The Adventure Bible Storybook (Deluxe Edition) is a wonderful resource that I highly recommend for every family. This set includes a beautifully illustrated Bible storybook and two CDs. The pictures in the storybook use a variety of absolutely beautiful and stunning shades of colors, and the pictures do not look like typical "kiddie" type pictures; they are illustrated to look realistic.

Book Review: Women Living Well

I recently had the privilege of reading Courtney Joseph's book Women Living Well.   This book was a breath of fresh air.  Women Living Well supplies the reader with practical advice for living in our fast-paced, technology-saturated world.

Running on Empty

Things were looking bleak...How had I allowed things to get this far?  There was nowhere to go...except for right where I was, and that wasn't going ANYWHERE.  I was stopped...and all I wanted was to go.

There are Treasures in the Darkness

Five months ago, my son was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes.  Five months ago, I learned that we would have to regulate my son's carbohydrate intake, test his blood sugar several times a day, give him four shots a day, monitor him for low blood sugar, and be prepared at all times to correct those lows. I felt like my world had turned upside down.  Five months ago, I learned that my daily life/daily routine was going to have to look different than it ever had before.

Book Review: New Spirit-Filled Life Bible

When I blogged a few years ago, one thing I really enjoyed doing was book reviews.  I'm such a bookworm anyway, so getting a book in exchange for a review seems like possibly one of the best trades ever. I've found myself looking for a particular Bible recently. Sometimes I'm struck by the irony of it all: here I am looking for the PERFECT Bible (Although, let's be HONEST, the Bible is ALREADY perfect sans any type of notes!) that will help me grow in the best possible way.
