Weekend links

Thanks again to Meagan for blessing five Simple Mom readers a copy of her new book, The Happiest Mom. The winners are: Ursula, Krissa, Amanda, Laura, and Hannah Cook. Congrats! Be looking for an email from me soon.

You won’t want to miss tomorrow’s post, on here and on all the SLM sites. We’ve got fun surprises up our sleeves! And the photo above is a little hint at another surprise I get to reveal soon. We’re just up to all kinds of fun around here.

May you each have a blessed Easter with loved ones. He is risen!

“The joyful news that He is risen does not change the contemporary world. Still before us lie work, discipline, sacrifice. But the fact of Easter gives us the spiritual power to do the work, accept the discipline, and make the sacrifice.” -Henry Knox Sherrill

  1. He is risen indeed!

  2. Thanks again for wonderful linkups!

  3. Thank you Tsh! The Moses on Facebook video is so funny!

  4. He is risen indeed- blessings to you and yours.

  5. oh my! I am so excited that I won! I could hardly believe it! I had just told my husband that maybe when finances pick up a bit I would like to buy it! I am just really looking forward to reading it. Thank you so much! I also liked the parents don’t dress your girls like tramps video. Really good.

  6. Thanks for sharing the CNN video. It’s not a site I frequent and it’s refreshing to know a mainstream news site gave it space-and did you see how many comments there are? People are talking, maybe some will stop buying the trash being sold. I have a son, so I haven’t had to personally face this, but I’d dress a daughter like my son before I’d buy the trashy clothes available!

    I used to teach the Cubbies class at AWANA and it was sad how many little girls were showing “crack” because of the style of pants available.

  7. Tsh – Thanks for the link love. <3

    Hope you and your family had a wonderful holiday.
