So, I'm a little obsessed over the Ultimate Homemaking Bundle and if you are a fan of Family Fun Friday, you will be too! This bundle is full of incredible advice on all things homemaking: faith, food, crafts, homeschooling and so much more. The bundle sale is going on this week and next week and if you want to see all the incredible e-books and e-courses that are being offered, head on over to Ultimate Bundles to learn more. Seriously, I know you will love it as much as I do!

My friend Monica over at Happy and Blessed Home asked me to join her as a co-host for Family Fun Friday to share six inspiring words of encouragement from other bloggers each week. This week's Family Fun Friday is about motivation for moms. Hope you enjoy!

If you're a blogger, be sure to scroll down to the bottom to link up your favorite posts! I'd love to feature your words of encouragement next week!

motivation for moms

Laura Sue Shaw shares some YouTube channels that keep her motivated and inspired. She mentioned iBloom, which I've heard of before, but two others that I want to check out. Thanks Laura Sue!

Leslie at Lamberts Lately has ten great gifts for Mother's Day. I want them all! (Raleigh, are you reading?).

Misty at Beautiful Ashes teaches moms how to be intentional with our prayer time. As a mom-on-the-go, I really appreciate her tips!

Nikki at MBA SAHM is speaking my language this week with her favorite shows to watch when she is alone on Netflix and Amazon Prime. I really want to try Orphan Black!

Shari at Faith Filled Food for Moms is keeping it real this week with her post about blogging becoming an addiction. I think all bloggers have probably obsessed over some of the items she has mentioned and need to continually be in conversation with God if blogging has become a false idol.

Whenever Kayse Pratt is having a sad laundry day, she needs to fly to Alabama to see my house. Laundry is such a daunting task for me and I just love her advice in her post, "On Laundry and Life." She gives me hope, she really does!

Family Fun Friday is all about connecting as a family. We feature great ideas for family fun, and things to help moms get things done so they have more time to spend doing what they love to do - be with family!
