Usually I post this question each year, but with an added twist. So, do you celebrate Halloween. If so, what do you do? Do you go to a fall festival at your church? Now for the twist. If you children do dress up, what are they going to be this year?

Prayer Partners

Often CWMs write to me saying they feel lonely and isolated in their church. The idea came to me, probably from God, for us to begin prayer partners. I am just brainstorming at this point and you can help me. We could connect two women together to pray for each other's needs. They could send requests through email or talk by phone if they wish. I might need someone to help me organize all of this. So, again just brainstorming right now. What do you think and do you have any suggestions or ideas? Thanks in advance for your help.

Update to this post. If you are interested in having a prayer partner. Send an email to with prayer partner in the Subject heading. List information about age and sex of children. I can't promise perfect matches, but will try. I will send you the email of another person wanting a prayer partner and you both can decide how to connect.

A Funny You Tube video for you

My friend Regina sent this link to me. This is a link to a You Tube video of a woman singing in 3 minutes all the things we tell our children in a 24 hour period, it is called the Mom Song. It is hilarious and very true.
Hope you enjoy it.
Be forewarned after the video it shows links to other youtube videos that I thought were inappropriate to see. So, just exit out when you are done.

Open Comment Section

Feel free to start any new posts or comments here. We have a great group of women in our community.

Pressure on Husbands

Debbie in the Open Comment Section recently shared that her husband was getting pressure from other husbands about her staying home and them not making the "sacrifice" that is necessary or the choice to stay home. I'm sure this has happened to others. I always feel women get the brunt of the criticism. So, if you husband has felt criticism or pressure about your working will you please share. The Open comment section has moved off the main page, you can find it in the August archive section. I will also start a new one Open Comment section.

Discussing Sex with your children

Recently, I was shocked when I heard in a Presidential debate that several to most of the candidates had no problem with 2nd graders being read a book about 2 princes getting married. My first reaction was I don't want to discuss sex with a 2nd grader much less homosexuality. So, that thought leads me to the question, Have you discussed sex with your children and how did you have "the talk"? Also, what do you think is the best age for the discussion?
