Adoption Articles

November is National Adoption Month. Frequently bloggers write about their story of adopting but rarely do I see posts by bloggers who have been adopted. Amy from Making a Joyful Home has written about tips from her perspective of being adoptive.

This lady is amazing, she has been praying with me while I'm in the adoption process, e-mailed me explaining lots of helpful things and just encouraged me during seemingly disappointing adoption news. Check out these articles and seriously follow her blog, you won't be disappointed.
November is National Adoption Month. Introduction to adoption itself, spiritual adoption.

What Adoptees Want Their Parents to Know. Three things that I think every adoptive family should read. This article explains from an adoptee perspective some things you should and shouldn't say to your adoptive {aka your} children.

Adoption Links. A list consisting of excellent adoption articles.


May God continue to spread the word about adoption and rise up His church to adopt the orphan. May He continue to teach each one of us about our own adoption in Christ!

If anyone has an adoption story/advice feel free to comment in the comment section and bloggers leave a link about your adoption story, I love to read all of them!

{FYI, Amy had no idea I endorsed her blog, she didn't ask me to, I just want my readers to be exposed and read other faithful Jesus loving gals!}

Mission-Focused Parenting {article}


"The greatest missionary force in America today sleeps in our bedrooms. May we lead, teach, and equip them well." -Alvin Reid


What an amazing thought. Mission-Focused Parenting is an article written which has served a great reminder of the needed discipleship in our own homes, with our own little ones. May we not neglect teaching the wonders of the Gospel to our own kids in our home.

Unwasted Homemaking Party #33


Thanksgiving is around the corner, the next week corner to be exact and I'm hosting around 30 people in my new home. No, I'm not fixing all the food, just hosting. I'm getting excited and finalizing my decor and table centerpieces this week and I'm looking for some ideas. Please link up any ideas you have even if you've posted it on here before!

I have an EXCITING announcement this week!
.....I just
opened
an

It only has a few items to start but, I'm adding more daily! Hope you can look around and buy some decor for your home or Christmas gifts! Here are a few items in my shop...

This little sign is a re-writeable chalkboard! You can use it as an ornament for your tree, gift tags or makes an excellent gift at Christmas!

This burlap pennant banner spells "noel" and is great decor for Christmas. I have several and plan on hanging them on my bannister, Christmas Tree, dining room hutch and anywhere else I can find. I'm adding different sizes and sayings this week.

This listing has 3 chalkboard Christmas trees. I'm using these to decorate my Christmas Tree and to give as gifts for Christmas.

Stop by and look around at Pieces of Redemption!

Just Curious....


I've honestly shied away from a lot of controversy on this blog because I've not felt I had the time to deal with comments/questions but, I found this post by a lovely friend and thought it was something to ask your opinion about. This article is concerning having a woman president and our views as Christians, I would love for you to read the entire article and comment on my blog :)!



"I am curious to know what other Christian women (or men) feel about having a female president? For me, I'm thinking that it probably isn't such a great idea. But I do struggle with it. Would I rather have a liberal in office or a conservative woman?" Kendal from The Father Knows Best

Last Week...


Here's a bit of what happened last week...

A car wreck on the way home from church. The kids and I were perfectly safe and I'm grateful for a minivan, I feel so safe in that vehicle now! The other little car was totaled.

Two days after the wreck I feel down some stairs with my head catching my fall. After hours in the E.R. I came away with only tons of pain, no major problems!

The last week was basically me recovering and being extremely thankful. Wow, yup, that's why this blog has been a bit neglected, all of the above and another very excited thing I'm working on... I'll let you know as soon as it's official :).
