Coffee Talk Thursday: What Do You Like Most?

This blog is for me, in that it gives me an outlet to write and a way to encourage other moms. This blog is also for you. I hope you find encouragement and practical help here to aid you in all you do each day as a wife and mother.

This Coffee Talk Thursday, I would love to hear from you on what you like most about this blog, and what would like to see more of?

  • Would you like to hear more of our stories of "misadventures," as someone once commented (we sure have a lot of those--yesterday at Hobby Lobby raised my blood pressure several notches, and then my youngest son's finger got cut by haircutting scissors, courtesy of a brother).
  • Would you like more devotionals--reflective thoughts on mothering?
  • Frugal tips?
  • What about housekeeping hints? I've shared before that I was raised in a very cluttered home, and so I have to keep teaching myself how to effectively run a home. As I learn new ideas and tips, I share them here.
  • I stopped doing our once-a-month cooking festival, where we shared hints to ease meal prep. There really wasn't much participation, so I just figured there was not any interest in it. Would you like to see more recipes and kitchen tips?
  • Is there anything else I've blogged about that you wish I would blog about more?
I'd love to hear your ideas and suggestions, since they will help me better serve you!

Have a great day!


  1. The posts I love the most are the reflective thoughts on mothering, but I enjoy the variety itself. :) Thank you for your blog!

  2. I love your mishaps! They make me smile in that "oh, i totally understand and i'm glad it was you and not me" kind of way. :D I love housekeeping hints, too.

  3. I love your stories. Your post the other day about getting the eye at the store, cracked me up, then on our trip to the library, guess who got the eye? I know a library we should be quiet but with a 20 month old boy it is not very easy :-) But that is why we do most of our selection on line so we just go in and pick them up, but we still get the eye!

    I will also add I enjoy your house management tips and mom reflections. I do think you have a great balance going right now. I suggest keep posting how you feel you need too! Thanks again for your blog :-)

  4. I really enjoy the variety here! I especially enjoy the reflections on motherhood, frugal tips and the "misadventures" always make me smile. I also enjoy your menu plan and when you talk about feeding children. As a homeschooler, I would like hearing more about your homeschooling journey.

  5. Truthfully, I love the variety. I wouldn't change a thing.

  6. I like the variety. Keep doing what you're doing!

  7. Thanks, everyone for the comments. I enjoyed reading your feedback.
    Amanda, good idea. I should post on homeschooling sometime. Thanks for the suggestion!
