Kristen is the mom of two boys, with a new little one on the way. She writes some great entries on being a mom. She’s also an avid reader, so if you’re looking for something new to read, you’ll probably find something in her reviews and author interviews.

Patti Hazlett has written a great post about trusting God on her blog, For Such a Time as This. She’s struggling with having lost her job.

Today, I want to introduce you to some of my favorite cyber girlfriends over at the Girlfriends in God website and Facebook page. Mary Southerland, Gwen Smith and Sharon Jaynes are the faces behing Girlfriends in God. I’ve never met Gwen outside the melodies of her music or Sharon outside the pages of her books, but I’m blessed to get to count Mary among my real-life girlfriends.

Shannon is a mother to four girls, wife to her husband Scott, and a talented speaker and writer. Her blog gleans spiritual wisdom and truth from the everyday events in her and her family’s lives. Usually short, her devotional style writing offers a scripture, a story and a Biblical truth in each post. I know you’ll love reading her blog as much as I do.

As I pondered taking a rest, I came across a fantastic website that just happened to be in the middle of a series on Biblical rest. It was confirmation for me that I needed to slow down and take a break. If you’re looking for a Biblical perspective on rest check out Teri Lynne Underwood’s blog “Encouraging Lives Where the Sacred and Secular Collide.” Her series on Biblical rest is encouraging and challenging.

When we’re running on an empty tank and we’ve lost sight of God’s grace and goodness, His word is always there to fill us back up. But, sometimes, I need a nudge in the right direction. When that happens, I head over to Ann Voskamp’s blog, A Holy Experience. Through Ann’s amazing writing, I always find a lesson in God’s faithfulness. Whether she’s tackling a spiritual practice that draws us closer to God (which she does every Wednesday), sharing pictures of her family or talking about life on their farm, I never fail to find a message of God’s goodness.

I want you to meet my friend Tonya Shrader. She’s the mom of two boys and has an amazing testimony of God’s faithfulness. She’s a talented writer, and I’m thrilled to call her my friend. She writes a fantastic blog called “One Girl Among a Bunch of Boys.” This week she blogged about her experiences teaching Vacation Bible School and had some fabulous insights into the hearts of children. Her blogs this week made me smile and brought tears to my eyes. Head on over and check out what she had to say. I’m sure you’ll love her as much as I do.
