Gifts from God: Other Mothers, Part I

Since school has dismissed and I have more time at home, I have been using your ideas all week long.

Thank you to my mother, my sister, and my dear friend Maria, for demonstrating for me how simple it is to treasure my children's artwork and use it to warm our home.

Thank you, Emma, for felt ideas.

Thank you, Katherine, for detailed directions and suggestions on studying our Faith using Lesson Books. We did our first entry yesterday for Pentecost.

Thank you Elizabeth, for helping me figure out how to help Little Builder over that hump of doing the copywork! (I asked him - draw first, then write)

Thank you, She Who Must Be Obeyed, for the lovely moments of music at snack time.

Thank you, Sylvia, for reminding me that I'm supposed to be kissing that icon on the way out the door.

Thank you, Meadowlark Days, for rhubarb bread.


  1. I've been meaning to respond to your comment from last night. I wanted to let you know that the lesson book page looks beautiful. I'm so happy that you were able to use the plans.

    This is such a sweet post. I've been feeling the same way about our Orthodox mommy support online.

  2. I love this recap of so many wonderful posts from Orthodox mommies! Thanks for sharing.

  3. Thanks for this post... I have very few Orthodox mothers that live nearby, but I don't feel like I miss out because of my online community!

    That being said, I think that it is time for an Orthodox Mothers Meetup!!

  4. It is so nice to have a support system for us Orthodox moms.

  5. Thank you for this post, it is wonderful when I "look around" at this amazing network of "friends" and am so thankful for all I learn from each of you!

  6. What a great post. Thanks for all the terrific resources!
