I’m so delighted to have had the opportunity to review Christin Slade’s new book Blog at Home Mom: Balancing Blogging and Mothering. What an encouraging and helpful book for us moms who blog.
I don’t know about you…well, in fact, I probably do. We moms STRUGGLE with balance in our lives!
Whether it is:
- spending time with each child
- getting schooling done
- keeping the house in order
- staying in budget
- fixing healthy meals
- driving children to various activities
- often caring for aging parents
Add blogging to the mix and it can send us over the brink.
But Blog at Home Mom has some very practical and insightful help to keep us going. And it all stems from the Lord at the center of our priorities. Learning to schedule, organize, resort, plan and sometimes drop the various items on our plate.
I love that Christin says:
Many of us believe when we become mothers, we are supposed to sacriﬁce our own passions for the sake of our children. While in some cases, this may be true and necessary, I’ve learned that living in your passion while mothering is the best of both worlds. I’ve also learned God gives us passions for a reason.
We don’t stop being children of God when we begin having children of our own. He still has designed us with gifts and passions and talents. We just need to learn how and when to use and develop these for His purpose and glory.
If you are a blogger, if you are a mom, if you are a blogging mom — you’ve GOT to read Blog at Home Mom!!
