“Bloom.” A pep rally and a GIVE AWAY!

If you’re a frequent mom-blog reader you’ve most likely come across Kelle Hampton’s blog “Enjoying the Small Things,” once or twice…… or three times a week if you’re like me and consider her to be a fantastic source of ‘mom’ inspiration and the pick-me-up we all sometimes need when...

Books for Mom: The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Families

Yeah, I know, I’m about 20 years behind on the “7 Habits” bandwagon that started with Stephen Covey’s bestselling book The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People published in 1989.  In fact, I’ve actually never read that book, never had the desire to read that book and had no idea that he also wrote a book entitled The 7 Habits of Highly...

Books for Mom…The Soldier’s Wife by Margaret Leroy

A little over a year ago Renae, our Be Whole editor, posted a review of  The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Schaffer and Annie Barrows.  It’s an interesting book and you should definitely snag yourself a copy if you like historical novels–especially ones set during WWII.  And then, last summer I stumbled...

Books for Mom: Major Pettigrew’s Last Stand

I was looking for a light, quick read when I picked up Major Pettigrew’s Last Stand…which I certainly found in this book! The protagonist of this story is a stodgy, retired British man named Ernest Pettigrew who lives in a small town nestled in the English countryside called Edgecombe St. Mary. Major Pettigrew is the quintessential...

Books for Mom: Swamplandia!

I admit, I’ve been in a reading rut lately. For some reason (maybe all those 19th century Brit Lit classes I took in college), I always reach for something that was written ages ago….even centuries ago sometimes. I love reading classic literature, but Wilkie Collins, you’re just not doin’ it for me right now!  I needed something...

National Entitlement Problem Awareness Day…and the new book The Entitlement Trap by Richard and Linda Eyre

Over the last week, I read two books that addressed the issue of entitlement in our kids.The first was Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother by Amy Chua, who was determined “not to raise a soft, entitled child” (22). Her self-proclaimed parenting tactics included overriding her children’s preferences, pushing them to realize their...

The Help…{a Review & a Recipe….for Chocolate Pie}

I went and saw The Help on Friday night and I’ll admit I walked into the theater with very low expectations.  After falling in love with the book last year (even crying when it was all over…..because I just wanted Skeeter and Abilene to be best friends forever) I was more than dismayed when I saw the previews for the movie describe it...

Stop Reacting and Start Responding by Sharon Silver: Book Review

When I was asked to take the book Stop Reacting and Stop Responding for a test drive, I agreed because I thought it might have some good ideas for…somebody else. I figured that after surviving three kids and more tantrums than I care to remember, it wouldn’t have much for me to use. Boy, was I wrong. In the introduction, Sharon Silver...
