living well

Amanda at Counting All Joy has a wonderful article this week about how mental stress affects our bodies. If you are feeling overwhelmed, I would recommend reading this!

Whenever I feel stressed, I love to just play with my kids. They make me laugh and I enjoy focusing on them. Jennifer at Study at Home Mama has tons of great mom and daughter dates for every budget. Can't wait to try these ideas with my girls!

Right now, I'm doing a blog series on Living Well with your mind, body, and soul. Lori Lane at The End in Mind is sharing how to tell yourself the truth with one of my favorite Bible verses, Philippians 4:8.

Laura at Sunny Day Family has five ways to keep your house clean every day. This is something that stresses me out and her tips are a simple reminder for me to clean daily.

Brenley at Spoons of Grace is so stinkin' cute! Y'all, I love her post this week about how her faith turned into friends. It will make you want to go out and join a life group asap!!!

Kim at The Resourceful Mama shares how to be a strong family in regards to National Child Abuse Awareness Month. Read it not only for yourself, but so you can give advice to other families if needed!

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!
