I am always excited when I find a new blog that I really like. One that makes me want to visit it every day to see what's new. To dig through the archives. Sometimes I go all the way back to the beginning of the blog and start reading - like starting at the beginning of a book - to get caught up to the present. I love finding a new blog where the more I read it the more I wish the writer was my next door neighbor!
My latest such discovery has been Heavenly Homemakers.
Laura is a wife and mom (4 boys!), a fellow believer (that always makes it even better!), and she is just a huge encouragement to me. I recently discovered her podcasts which are perfectly sized - between 10 and 15 minutes - for a busy mom to listen to. I think my favorite one is Podcast Seven: Teaching Little Ones About God. It was a wonderful encouragement to me, and a reminder of all the ways I can start teaching Susannah about God NOW.
Another perk is "I wanna be like her when I grow up" in the kitchen :) What she does in her kitchen is similar to where I'm trying to get to! She grinds her own flour, has a garden, makes healthy, wholesome food for her family to eat... all that good stuff and more.
Anyway, I just wanted to share links with you. I don't know Laura personally (I know other Laura's personally, but not this Laura), and aside from a few comments I've made on her blog, she probably doesn't know me from Adam. Or Eve? I hope if you stop by her blog you will be as uplifted and encouraged as I always am!
PS: I love her subtitle: Making our Homes Heavenly ... Striving towards our Heavenly Home.
