In the midst of our busyness the past few weeks, I've still made time to keep up with some of my favorite blogs. Here are some posts that I've really enjoyed . . . and thought you might, also. :)
Passionate Homemaking is a blog that challenges me and encourages me as a wife and mom. Lindsay had three excellent posts recently that I will probably be going back and re-reading again and again. Establishing a Morning Routine-Maximize Your Mornings really struck a chord with me. This is something I'm constantly striving towards, but sometimes it feels like my progress is extremely slow! I appreciated the encouragement in this post so much.
Can Natural Living Become an Idol? was a fantastic post also. I am nowhere near close to living as naturally as many people, but it's something I'm interested in . . . yet I definitely don't want it to ever become all-consuming in my life.
And my favorite recent post of all: Letting Go of Unrealistic Expectations. An excellent lesson for us married ladies to apply to our lives!!
I also was really blessed by Shyla's post on living life deliberately. It went right along with Lindsay's post about maximizing mornings. I'm sorry to say that in spite of my great new year's goals, I still haven't been doing too well living a deliberate life. Time to map out a plan and stick to it!!
And I know that many of you already read Money Saving Mom, but I've been incredibly challenged and encouraged by her family's success in reaching their goal of saving up 100% cash for a home. WOW, what an accomplishment!! She has started posting a series about how they did this--you can read Part 1 here and Part 2 here. She also has an excellent post here about financial goal-setting. Reading about their journey has inspired me to set down some financial goals on paper, and then hopefully work hard to achieve them this year!
I hope these links may be a blessing to some of you, as they've been to me. And please share any of your own favorite links in the comments!!
