Lots of encouraging and helpful posts out there this week!  Here are a few of my favorites:

“Great Trials, Great Saints” by Carolyn Mahaney from Girl Talk:

“No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man.” 1 Co. 10:13

In these past few months, I have discovered a helpful exercise for the soul: studying the lives of great saints. These men and women often had great trials, and when I read about their trials it puts my own in proper perspective.


“Embracing God’s View of Children” by SarahDees from Frugal Fun for Boys:

In my house, we are years away from any relief from the mounds of laundry and the sticky fingers and the noise.  But honestly, getting rid of those inconveniences would not in and of themselves make me a happier person.


“Treasures in Cardboard Boxes?” by Jessica from Life as Mom:

Later I found my “good” china teapot broken in a storage box. Confirmation that it’s better to store your treasure in heaven and not in a cardboard box in the garage.


“100 Days of Christmas” from The Happy Housewife:

Homemade Christmas gifts don’t have to look like they came out of your 3 year-old’s Sunday School class. There are some amazing homemade gift ideas that can be made by real-life moms on a real-life budget!

For the next 100 days I’ll be sharing with you 100 homemade Christmas gifts that are easy to make and won’t break the bank.
