"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we would be holy and blameless before Him. In love He predestined us to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the kind intention of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, which He freely bestowed on us in the Beloved." Ephesians 1:3-6

My Mommy Minute: April 17

This one does have a particular order--this first post is from an author that I recommend.  I have read her book Glimpses of Grace and have started her new book that just came out on March 31.  So check out this post--it's a goodie.

Why Motherhood is Only For the Faint of Heart by Gloria Furman (author of a wonderful new book Treasuring Christ When Your Hands Are Full, which I highly recommend! You can download the FREE study guide here from Crossway)

The rest are in no particular order:)
Learning to Love Every Age and Stage by Raising Arrows
I know I have read this before and when I came across it this past week I appreciated it just as much as before.  I struggle with the fact that my kids are growing up. It literally makes my stomach hurt to know as time passes we can't get it back.  I try to savor these moments but it's sometimes out of such a fear that I will not have savored them and then I'm stuck more on the fear...if that makes sense! Just breathe. Be present. And just love them for today.
