WoW, April seemed to fly by so quickly and here, we open the page to a new chapter in our story, the chapter titled: May. This is the month where I like to review and evaluate how I'm doing on the parenting/mothering spectrum. In what area's can I improve upon?
In thinking about these things and going back to the books that encourage me, I wanted to do a post and share with you some of my favorite mothering websites. These are the sites that continue to encourage, inspire and convict me on this journey of motherhood.
If you have a few minutes, I highly recommend you spend some time reading these three sites.
I Take Joy : Sally Clarkson's blog is such a treasure to me. If I have one of those rough, tempted to pull my hair out days, I pound on the keys of my mac, i t a k e j o y and click enter. I leave in tears but with renewed strength that I can do this! Sally's books are one of the few that made their permanent homes on my bookshelf, (and those of you that have read my eBook know that this is no small thing.)
FIMBY : Where do I even begin with this one? I love this girl! She has inspired me and not even known it because for a long time I was one of "those people," the lurker who never comments. She is unaware that because of her, we began making our own soap and even threw away our shampoo. This site has it all, the inspirational mothering tips, encouragment for homeschooling families and inspiration to get outside more. Read this site, be warned though, fimby is addicting.
Joyful Mothering : I could simply leave you with the title. Joyful Mothering. Christin is such an inspiring example of what learning to mother with joy looks like. Her about page is what hooked me onto her site, she writes that, "Joyful Mothering is a place to scribble out how I stregnthen faith, nurture family, and lead a life filled with joy," all of which permeates through her words.
Do you have a favorite mothering/parenting site?
