Being a mom is the hardest thing I've ever done, but it has brought me so much joy! I want to encourage other moms on their journey, I'll share motherhood tricks, spotlight tips I've learned from friends, and I hope you will share your ideas. I will focus on secrets that help families stay balanced, healthy, frugal, creative, and closely knit. I will also share favorite fiction and nonfiction books that I have enjoyed. Many blessings to you on your mothering journey!

Kids, Creativity and Costumes

Kelly Curtis just wrote a great post about halloween costumes at Blissfully Domestic. She includes lots of SUPER SIMPLE ideas for costumes, but she also writes ab0ut viewing the costume frenzy through a different lens. It's NOT about having the perfect Martha Stewart costume. It's about encouraging kids to be creative and have fun. We can definitely do that withOUT spending $50 on a costume!

Kelly is also an author - she wrote a very practical book for youth workers, pastors and families called Empowering Youth: How to Encourage Young Leaders to Do Great Things. She also blogs regularly at Pass the Torch.
