Hi! Every Saturday we hold our Pin-it party. I invite you to stop by and share your favorite pins and posts!

The following week, I share one with you!

This week, I wanted to share the most-clicked because it was one of my favorites.  I loved this post because it spoke right to my heart and I completely agree with her.

Kristy gives us 7 thoughts & ideas to keep in mind when you are a mother, especially if you are staying home with your children.  She reminds us of things like ‘get dressed’ and ‘remember to eat’, but then she also reminds us to…
Keep in mind that you are molding a little human being into the person God wants them to be. But as they learn and grow, inevitably they will throw tantrums, make messes, be loud, cry for no reason, and do exactly what you tell them not to do. (This is when #1 comes in handy.) Be patient and work with your child. In order to do this, you must be present. Put away your technology and distractions. Because being present will allow you to see all the beautiful things your child does throughout the day. These little things will make your soul smile and remind you having your little babe is truly worth it. While you’re present (and even when you’re practicing that patience), tell that baby you love him/her every chance you get.” 

This is just a tiny sneak peek.  I promise that you are going to love this post, so head over there and read what Kristy has to say.   Then stop back because it is TIME TO PARTY!

Onto the party with myself and my three dear friends:

**Before you pin, I just want to make sure that you know that by adding your link to this page, you are giving me permission to feature it, if it should be picked, with a little sneak peek into your post. 

Hi there!

  1. Thank you so much for hosting this Pin-It Party! And double thanks for featuring my article ‘7 Tips to Being a Better SAHM.’ 🙂 I can’t believe it was the most clicked! I am humbled that so many mamas could use the encouragement. I wrote it as a reference for myself, but I am so excited that others are finding my words useful as well. We’re in it together, sisters!

    1. Thanks, Kristy. I found it to be so inspiring.
