Cozy Book Hop

Thursday, February 14, 2013

In honor of this day of focus on Love, I thought you all might want to share a post that you just loved recently - just leave a comment with the link to a post you love, not one you wrote though (your most recent post will be included since you're leaving a comment). This way we can enjoy what each other is gaining from. So link up your post for the hop, and leave a comment with another post that you just loved over the past few weeks. It'll be a day of sharing little bits we love from the blogging community.

Last week's favorite from the Hop was from Sue at The T2 Women. Her post, More Than a Love Story for Rebekah, details the story of Rebekah and how her love story tells us so much about the relationship we can have with Jesus. If you didn't have the chance last week to check it out, I would suggest taking a moment to reading through it.

Here's to another week of sharing our reading lists - remember you can link up any post that relates to reading or a book (include the bible...) any activities that were inspired by a book or a list of books you are hoping to read in the near future. Any of it!

Please link back to the hop on the post you put up so others can join us - either grab the button code on the sidebar, or add a text link to your post. If you do put in this little tag back, I'll be sure to give you a shout out on my facebook page and on twitter - if you aren't following Reading List in either of these formats, click the icon on the sidebar and join in on the fun!

If you could stop by some of the other links (at least one) and leave them a friendly little note that would be great, as the goal of joining a hop is to build your community.

So here we go - Link up, and enjoy your Valentine weekend!

Discipline and Discipling

Wednesday, February 13, 2013

I want the best for my kiddos. I want them to get along with other kids so they can be respected and feel part of the group. I want them to know how to listen and interact so that other kids will want to play with them. Isn't that a major desire for moms?

This desire causes me more stress than is necessary  because I want my kids to have figured out these social expectations as soon as they have had one experience  I know that sounds absurd - I have been on this earth for decades and still don't always behave correctly to always fit in with the group. Granted I've finally found a group I feel good about me in, and am not playing a part, but that isn't the point of this... All the pressure I put on me and my kids to be accepted by this broken world - that is the point.


Simply Helping Him: Love Feature

Tuesday, February 12, 2013

I don't think any mom could ever forget that moment when she first saw her new baby. I can remember each ultrasound picture clearly.  And then the moment they first say "Mama" from their crib - priceless.

That is a form of love that can't just be defined in the dictionary, right mamas?

It's something different - it's a present, a gift from One who loves more than we could ever imagine or describe.

I'm doing a feature on this love of mamas and the God who creates today over at Simply Helping Him and would love for you to check it out!


A handbook for parenting

There is so much to being a mom, isn't there?  I mean the job description is quite long.

If you were to look up a job on some career search site there would be a section that described the expectations that the employer has for this future employee.  You following me?

Imagine what it would look like if the job opening was for a mother?
