Weekend Links

I used to do a series called Weekend Links where I shared great blogs I read during the week. I felt the need to do this again. So today I'm sharing some great blog posts that were very encouraging or helpful for me this past week.

I hope you were encouraged by these great blogs!

Imitating Christ In Our Marriage

I'm writing over at The Imperfect Wives today. Come join us and be encouraged!

As a Mama to little boys, I'm the first wife role model they see. Children are so impressionable, especially at an early age. Their little minds are blank, waiting to be filled with good or bad. We have a chance to impact them with our marriage and honor God.

Smiling At the Future

I have to admit that sometimes I fear the future. I fear what could happen tomorrow or twenty years down the road. I fear things my children may have to endure from heartbreaks to broken bones. We can never know what the future holds. It can catch us by surprise with good and bad things. God has been really dealing with me about worrying about what my future holds. At times I just wish there wasn't any turmoil in the world and it would be a place of peace and comfort.

Come join me at The Imperfect Wives today as I share some of my heart.

Encouragement From God's Word

Trials can often leave us breathless and wondering why did this have to happen? We look around at others who are untouched and we grieve. No matter how big or small the trial truly is, to us, it is always big. We all go through hard times at different stages of life. Trials will always exist here on earth. So how do we deal with them? What do we do when they come our way?

I'm sharing more about my book over at Laurie's site Women Taking A Stand. Come join me!

At the Master's Feet: Encouragement For Your Soul can purchased here on Amazon.

The Greatest of These

I'm posting at two different sites today. I will share both links below so you can read both posts.

Sometimes it's so hard to love others, especially our loved ones. We can become irritated, frustrated, or angry at them and we don't want to show love to them. We may think they don't deserve love from us. That may be true, but we didn't deserve God's love either. In spite of our failures, He extended His love anyway. Out of that love was born two beautiful things: faith and hope.

I'm sharing over at Laced With Grace today about love. Won't you join me?

I'm honored to be guest posting over at Kathy Howard's blog, Unshakeable Faith For Life. She's a wonderful writer I have connected with on Facebook. She was kind enough to help me spread the word about my book.   

I'm a stay-at-home wife and mama and some nights I'm so tired I can't think straight. Cooking meals, washing dishes, teaching school, and folding laundry can overwhelm me. Add to the list: raising my boys, writing devotions, and keeping the marriage kindled. I can feel as though there isn't enough of me to go around to get it all done. To read more go here, Kathy Howard: Unshakeable Faith For Life.
