Mama Monday

We had a beautiful Easter weekend with visiting family, such a lovely Resurrection Sunday, so I haven't had time for a CBM review this week!

But if you like, you can skip on over to Andrea at The Flourishing Mother and read some more tidbits about my life as a wife and mama at her Mama Monday post for today! I was so honored to be asked to join this group of mamas- I am inspired by the sharing of their souls every time Andrea shares another! Thank you, kind friend.

If you posted a CBM review today, would you kindly leave the link in the comments so we can add some new books to our library lists?

Happy Mama Monday and Happy, Happy, Reading!

Hi, friend!
So glad to hear that you all had a lovely Resurrection Sunday!
And I so very much enjoyed your beautiful, wise words over at Mama Monday. Can you come over for tea today so we can talk some more? I have so very, very much to learn about being a mama... and I'm so thankful for examples like you :-)

Hi Elise,

Thanks for sharing your words over at Andrea's blog today. They always inspire me to be more *intentional* about my own mothering. You are such an encouragement to me and many others!

Love,
Anna

Elise,
I *so* enjoyed your "Mama Monday" interview. It calms my spirit and brings me joy in my blessed calling here at home....but also turns me to the Lord first, as His daughter. I especially enjoying learning about your minute (or more) alone to pray/call out to God in your room. With all my little ones and my husband working long hours, I can honestly get overwhelmed. And I loved the explanation about the see saw. I'm always reminding myself that my priority is to have a loving, calm home that can be shared with others. Ok, this is long now. I thought of you this week...we sing a hymn after breakfast. Since we just celebrated Easter, I chose "Look, Ye Saints" on Micheal Card's "Hymns" album. It is *very* lively, joyful and Irish about crowning Jesus as King. with warm thanks, Mary Brooke in Atlanta
