All in the Family

I've realized lately that God has placed extremely talented people in my life and I need to extend their wealth of knowledge to my "blogosphere" of influence. It's all about spreading the love, folks.

Which is definitely a better thing to share with you than the pink eye that Park is currently enduring. Yikes, poor baby. But, that is another story for another day that I will hopefully forget to tell.

First up, is my mother-in-law, known best on this blog as the creatively gifted Grandma who is gracious enough to host art classes for her grandchildren. However, that only highlights a small portion of her talent and it is time you see more of her Rustique Art designs. Feel free to check out her new blog and leave a sweet comment to make her feel welcome.

The next person I want to introduce is someone who also came from the above creative gene pool. My sister-in-law has just started a brand new cloth diaper blog and if you use them, are interested in learning to use them, or know some one who is, this is the place for you. I also should mention that her husband is our chiropractor and she is well versed in homeopathic medicine. If we ever have questions on natural healing or nutritional supplements, they are our "go to" people and would be happy to be yours, as well.

In line with "keeping it in the family", I thought I'd use this opportunity to disclose that my husband will be making a few appearances on my Holding Little Hands blog in the coming weeks as a guest contributor. He said the time has come to share "The Man's Point of View", which will consist of periodic posts that counter things I have written about him, impart financial wisdom, help with do-it-yourself projects, give insight into the teenage mind (based on his experiences as a youth pastor), share openly about fatherhood, and encourage woman in their faith, marriages, organization, and creativity. Even though I can't promise correct comma placement, I can tell you that you will be blessed by his heart.

And although this person is not technically a family member, we grew up together from the ripe old age of 6. Reigning from my own hometown and kindergarten class, my childhood friend Traci , who now resides in Houston, has grown an on-line business out of her God-given talent for making things beautiful. After becoming a stay-at-home mom to her precious son, Caven, Beady Queen was birthed as an outlet for her creativity. (And my accessories have never been the same since!) To follow more of her journey, you can find her blog here.

Last but certainly not least, I can't discuss creativity without mentioning our other family, Fellowship Church. Our senior pastor, Ed Young, has also started a new blog that I would love for you to check out. I'm confident in saying it will be full of insightful wisdom, funny stories, and spirit led discussion that will enhance your day.

So there you have it. Happy linking, friends!

Thanks for passing them on... I plan on visiting each site you suggested when the kids are in bed tonight. Look forward to your husband's posts, as well.
