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!

MommySecrets from the Week's Treasure Chest

Here are some articles I've enjoyed from other bloggers this week:

Social-Emotional Skills for Preschoolers from Let's Explore

Use What We Have: Ugly Craiglist Canvas from Like Merchant Ships

Birthday's on a Budget: Roundup! from Frugal Upstate

11 Cheap (and free!) Toys for Young Children from simple mom

It's been a fun weekend in our house - visiting with friends from WI and AZ, going to the zoo, playing baseball, going to a concert, playing on bounce-arounds, building fort, drinking coffee, and having a Wii date with my hubby. Today will be mostly a day of rest - I love quiet Sundays!

Oh, and I started a great book yesterday! It's Joanne Heim's new book, "Misplacing God and Finding Him Again". It echoes prayers in my heart over the last 2 decades - her writings are parallel the journals I've written for years. I'm sure it's a book I will recommend to people often! I'll write more when I finish the book.

Happy day,
