Cozy Book Hop & Words of Encouragement

Thursday, January 10, 2013

I've been asked how I find the time to read all these books while taking care of my little ones. And to be honest it isn't easy, because I cannot read during the day when it's just me and my boys. So for all those mamas out there that don't feel like they can read any books, because their schedule is so kid-focused. I find time on the weekends, during naps, after bedtimes... I'm a kindle user so I can read while I exercise! So there you have it, how I sneak in time to read while still being a mama.

In the past couple of weeks I've come across two extremely encouraging posts from some other blogging mommies.  I hope you find them encouraging also!

Sally Clarkson has been getting lots of attention for the release of her new book, Desperate, but before all that, she put out a great video to love on those mamas who are tired of the daily work that comes with being a mama, especially to little ones. Check it out!

And amongst all the great intentions for 2013 I've read - including my own!- this one stood out to me. I often leave Ann Voscamp's blog feeling inspired to do more that I think I could possibly do, and this time it was no different. Maybe its because I've been focused on Romans for the last three months as my own personal way of storing His word in my heart, but this challenge of memorization seems like the perfect extra step to strive for this year. Are you in?

And here is the most popular post from last weeks link up at Cozy Book Hop: My book list for 2013 from Kathy. Did you read it? If not stop by today and say hi!
