Weekend Reading – 8/6/10

Tara and I are so excited to spend time today with some  friends we lived next to during out time in the army.  Blane is off today, too, so it’s just a happy day around here!  As usual, I have some excellent posts from around the blogosphere for you to read.  I hope you’re encouraged and that you have a wonderful weekend!


The Power of a Focused Mother – This goes with chapter 4 of The Mission of Motherhood this week.  It is a great, short post about sacrifice for the glory of God.

My Story. Part 1 – You will cry reading this post.  I did, anyway.  Even if you don’t, you will be encouraged.  Have I been vague enough as to it’s content to get you to read it??

Loving our Husbands

Serving Our Husbands Through a Nourishing Diet- Part 1 and Part 2 – I could not have said it better, particularly because the author is a veteran wife of 33 years, seasoned with much more wisdom than this young wife of 6 years.  If you don’t consider yourself “passionate” about health & nutrition and really lack a desire to learn about it, I urge you to read these posts.  If you get a chance, go back and read through why I do what I do when it comes to health and nutrition.  Maybe it will serve as a primer for you to get started in thinking about these things a little more.

Well, I better run.  I think Brant decided he wants to take a bath.  Our bath tub is really low and this wouldn’t be the first time he’s fallen in head first (no water in it of course) because he’s reaching for toys.  :)   “See” ya next week!

  1. Thanks so much for linking to my post! It reminded me to get out my Mission of Motherhood book and start reading it.

    I also got a little weepy when reading Kat’s post. It is definitely encouraging.

  2. I’m glad you liked the post, Kelly. Sorry I made you cry. :-)

    Your post was most helpful and since we’ve been “talking” about similar things while going through the Mission of Motherhood, I thought my readers would benefit from it, too. Aren’t you anxious for part 2 of Kat’s post?!
