The Oxen Are In

| June 2, 2014

From Rachel Jankovic at Femina: I bet that in that home when I put a stack of clean clothes on the bed in my room, toddlers would not lay siege to it and throw it back in the dirty clothes.  Because in that life, there would not be the unsavory mess of my life. There […]

I Signed Up For This

| January 16, 2014

Excellent reminders from Mrs. Gore’s Diary: Motherhood is HARD, yes, but it doesn’t have to be dreary and droopy. Chin up, buttercup. Shoulders back. Turn that frown upside down. Swallow those sorrowful sighs. Choose joy, because even on the hardest days, it is still exactly that: a choice. Laugh at today and all the days to […]

Children Are Not for You

| November 17, 2013

From Homekeeping Heart: I inwardly cringe every time I hear the question. “How many children do you want?” When did children become something to obtain because we want it?  When did they become something to collect or possessions to own?  They’ve almost been lowered to the position of pets.  I’m thinking it probably happened around […]

How to Keep a Beautiful Home

| January 15, 2013

Some excellent, much needed (by me at least!) reminders from Bambi at In the Nursery of the Nation: Even as busy moms who have crumbs that seem to permanently reside in the kitchen chairs, we can still have lovely homes if our hearts are willing.  Fresh paint, colorful adornments to the walls or fancy furniture will […]

The Need to Breed

| January 9, 2013

Here is a great post from Get Along Home that bluntly states an obvious truth that our short sighted, “me centered” modern society seems to be oblivious to: We don’t seem to understand (and by “we”, I mean “not me”) that children are a literal investment. You have to put in the work to get the payoff. […]

Fetal Cells Cross Placenta, Stay With Pregnant Mom for Life

| December 14, 2011

Another amazing study on the benefits of pregnancy: According to Krulwich there is increasing evidence that “when a woman has a baby, she gets not just a son or daughter, [but] an army of protective cells – gifts from her children that will stay inside her and defend her for the rest of her life.” […]

Large families ‘protect’ mother’s health

| November 28, 2011

This interesting study helps fight the myth that having babies is bad for women: Research involving 1300 women in California suggested those who had four or more children were one third less likely to due from cardiovascular disease. The majority of the effect seemed to result from the prevention of stroke, as mothers of large […]

Motherhood Is a Calling (And Where Your Children Rank)

| July 14, 2011

 A must read. This beautful and powerful post from Rachel Jankovic  reminds us that in dying, we truly live: But a Christian should have a different paradigm. We should run to to the cross. To death. So lay down your hopes. Lay down your future. Lay down your petty annoyances. Lay down your desire to be […]

Sow in Spring

| April 29, 2011

Mother! Mother! Watch and pray, Fling not golden hours away! Now or never, plant and sow, Catch the morning’s earliest glow. Mother! Mother! Guard the dew, While it sparkles clear and true. No delay! The scorching noon May thy treasures reach too soon. Mother! Point them to the sky, Tell them of a loving eye, […]
