This week I was touched by the posts written by these bloggers. There is great wisdom here. I found myself humbled by my many blessings and I felt God’s love as I read tips on Marriage, and your posts on Adoption and Motherhood. Readers – if you are looking for a little inspiration to be loved and to love, you’ll be blessed by the features this week at Family Fun Friday.
- Concise with a step-by-step plan to bolster marriages, LeAnn at Life, Love and Mysteries shared 3 Keys to a Rock Solid Marriage.
- MommySue at Chaotic Simplicity breaks down faith into childlike simplicity in her post Because God Loves Us. I think you’ll find her post refreshing.
- On a lighter note, Jamie over at Love Bakes Good Cakes shared a beautiful FREE printable based upon the Love Never Fails verse in 1 Corinthians 13.
- Marissa shares a little on God’s love in her post Loving our Kids: A Lesson in Being Loved on her blog Marriage Motherhood and Missions. She writes, ” love is powerful. It will flow out of you and your kids will start to feel it. And all you had to do was ask to feel it.”
- I don’t know what it is, but Nancy’s writing always inspires my heart. On her blog There is Grace, she shares What love is… She writes about how her husband stepped in and taught their son a little bit about how to treat a woman. Nancy – you have a beautiful family – thanks for sharing.
- Carly from Africa to America imparts wisdom and grace in her post What adoption taught me about love. Carly – we can all learn from your experience. Thanks for sharing!
