I read a lot of “mommy bloggers,” and I especially love the blogs out there by and for moms who are embracing and encouraging and challenging to Christian moms. The best of the best are moms who have been there or are still there – in the trenches, having good days and bad days. Making victorious choices and taking responsibility and learning the lessons from poorer choices. Sharing the Scripture that edifies them, the wisdom of great writers, the moments from their own unvarnished lives that can humor and uplift and chastise all the rest of us.
One of my very favorites is Barbara Curtis, who is mom to TWELVE beautiful kids, has written a number of books – is still writing a couple!, and manages to keep up with her MommyLife blog on top of all that. I found a neat website a few days ago through a link in someone’s signature at my parenting forums, and it immediately reminded me of Barbara’s testimony and example. I emailed her to share the link, and included a “thanks for all you do, and here’s how I’ve used it” thought. She decided to share it with her (many!) readers, and you can find it here.
