The Mom Tree

The<br /> Mom Tree

I wanted to let you know about a great new site for busy moms. It is filled witth Mom Tips, Mom Picks, Mom Reviews and more. The website is The Mom Tree. This site was started by Trina Giusti and she now shares The Mom Tree duties with her mother and two sisters. One thing I like about The Mom Tree is that is hasn’t gotten too big, it has a homey feel and it is easy to navigate.

The Mom Tree is a place where moms can share, learn and grow. The fact that some of the content is user generated allows the site to have a broader appeal. Hop on over to The Mom Tree and check it out for yourself.

Monday Motivation

We had a very busy. yet fun weekend. My oldest actually took the SAT test on Saturday! Sunday was filled with church and a Pastor Appreciation Picnic at the beach. I love sharing times of fellowship with other people in our church family.

This week’s Monday Motivation comes again from the book “Nurture” by Lisa Bevere. I hope it sparks something in you, as it did in me.

“Nurture has the power to enlarge or awaken areas of your life that will make significant contributions. Any gift, ability, or talent we have is given to us to improve and enhance the lives of others. There is something within you that this world desperately needs.”

What is that thing? Find it…Nurture it…Share it…


Monday Motivation

I have been kind of tired all day. I’m sure it is because of the time change and some stress I am carrying around. I wanted to share some Monday motivation with you today.

This comes from the book “Nurture” by Lisa Bevere.

“God is stirring those whose hearts are longing to see the loose ends tied up. These are connections we need to actively search out and begin to develop. Sisters, I believe it is our time. Nurture, the language of the feminine heart, is being restored as women arise, recognize each other, and begin to connect for strength and purpose.”

Women, God is using us-now more than ever before in history to nurture those in our families, church’s and communities. He is calling us to connect with other people, hurting people and love on them and help them give their wounds and hurts to Jesus. Allow God to use you in this awesome and mighty way.
