Welcome to the second edition of Worthy Weekend (W)Reads (sorry I need the alliteration)! I’m sure you, like me, enjoy reading a good blog post. This will be my collection of worthy reads that I’ve enjoyed throughout the week in a variety of platforms. I typically have shared these on our WOOC Facebook Page (check us out there), however with the Facebook rules only small percentages of our followers actually see our posts. Will you comment with the post you read this week that meant to most to you? I love to read other’s writing!
Worthy Parenting/Adoption Reads:
Grace, Grit and Wit: To the Siblings of Adopted Children: I adore this perspective. Our adoption wasn’t entered into without many times on our knees, praying for our bio children and how it might affect them. God is able!
Kari Kampakis: Raising a Kind Daughter: I enjoyed these tips on how to raise a kind daughter. Sometimes, even as young as 7 or 8, we can feel the ‘tweenness’ coming and we don’t know how to stop it. This kindness post hits the nail on the head.
Worthy Holiday Celebration Reads:
Truth in the Tinsel: If you have preschool/young elementary aged children, this precious #Advent book is worth the $7.99 price tag. Your children will remember the ornaments and truths for years to come.
eighteen25: BE Thankful Utensil Holders: I love easy peasy, free downloadable things that can make our holiday table a little more kid friendly. I enjoy my children doing our decorations, I know it won’t always be this way and they are so beautifully creative these days.
4tunate: Andes Mint Brownies: Mint and chocolate is one of my go-to favorite flavors during the holidays. I love this super easy recipe.
Baby Be Blessed $65 Gift Voucher: We love when family businesses bless us small blogs with great giveaways! When we contact the big companies, we usually aren’t big enough to garner their attention. But these small family business are some of our favorite to support!
The Better Mom: When I Forgot to Ask: This post served as a great reminder of how much we need God’s help and how our days can go when we simply forget to ask. We experienced that this week, let us always remember to ask!
Worthy Blog Building:
Focused Blogging: 5 Strategies to Advance your SEO now: We have been blogging for 9 years, but it was mostly just fun, family updates. We are still learning and still don’t know much, it seems. But this was an easy way to learn! And now I need to look up more terms because some of it was greek to me!
Money Saving Mom: How to Balance Motherhood & Blogging: This is a great piece, for not just bloggers, but anyone that has a passion that sometimes makes you feel guilty about your parenting as well. Loved it Crystal!
