Thriving Thursday 10/02

So, if you subscribe via email, you might have received an email yesterday from me about Thriving Thursday and though “wait a minute…it’s not Thursday? Is it?” No, it wasn’t. I was trying to get too cool for myself and preschedule some posts and it went out a day early!  So, here we are again. On the correct day!  So sorry about that.

It has been a bit of an exciting week around here!

Last Friday, I got to share a fun writing announcement–I was recently chosen to be on a team of contributors for The Busy Mom!  How exciting is that :)

I also decided, for the first time ever, to participate in 31 days…which is posting about the same topic for 31 days. I decided to make mine into a challenge and I couldn’t be more excited about it. I would love for you all to join me!

31 Days of Loving My Husband Intentionally by Serving Joyfully


Finally, I shared yesterday my newest free kindle book list and I think it’s the best one yet! I’m so excited about these particular books being free :)

And now it’s your turn!  What have you been up to on your blog?

Thriving Thursdays Link Up!!!

Thriving Thursdays is a link up for family-friendly bloggers, who are choosing to THRIVE in their lives. It’s a place for us to encourage and inspire one another to live life to the fullest–in Jesus Christ. Link up your posts about thriving–in marriage, faith, parenting, homemaking, relationships, in the kitchen, in frugality.

Everything we do can be a ministry and worship to our Lord. Link up as many posts as you want, and I hope that you’ll take the time to visit some other participants as well.

I am so blessed by the posts you all share! I really look forward to seeing all of the encouragement shared here each week. Keep it coming! Sometimes I highlight posts here, and I also pin my favorites to the Thriving Thursdays Pinterest Board.

PS–don’t forget to visit my new co-host, KM Logan :)

    Seems as if there is so little time. So many great hops going on this week. I would love to participate in Loving My Husband Intentionally. Do we have to blog everyday or can we report in once a week?

      Mary, you don’t have to blog about Loving My Husband Intentionally (although you are welcome to!). Just do something intentional to bless your husband every day :) I’m sharing my challenges every day if you’d like ideas. You can find those either on this post, or on my facebook page. Most of the discussion w/ other wives who are participating as well is going on at my facebook page. Would love to have you join in.

I love to hear your feedback and value your thoughts! All I ask is that we remain respectful and civil, even when we disagree. Thanks so much for reading. I appreciate you!

Thank you for joining in the discussion!
