Thankful Homemaker and $50 Vision Forum Gift Certificate Giveaway!


How many of you have heard about Marci over at Thankful Homemaker? She is such a sweet gal and she loves to blog about many of the same things I do such as:

  • Homemaking
  • Biblical Womanhood
  • Parenting
  • Education
  • Grandparenting (I don't blog on this yet, but hope to one day!)
  • Health and more


 (Marci and her husband, Doug)


I got a chance to get to know Marci a bit more since we both co-authored (along with 10 others) the newly released eBook, The Heart of Simplicity. Here is a recent fun video she made recently with her daughter on how to make homemade sunscreen:









She also did a series on how to organize your home called the Room by Room , has tips for memorizing scripture and evangelism, a Homemaking Binder you won't want to miss including a fun weekly linkup on Tuesdays. Here is an excerpt from her blog post entitled The Beauty of Self Control:


"Our emotions were given to us by God to glorify Him and enjoy Him.  Think of how our emotions enrich our lives everyday.  When we are happy to see our husbands come home from work, the joy we feel from hugging our children, the surprise in receiving flowers from our husband, the excitement of getting all the laundry caught up.  Imagine life without these emotions - you can't - emotions make our lives meaningful.  They are a gift from God.

Let's look at the negative emotions such as fear, despair, guilt and loneliness.  These serve a purpose too - they reveal the state of our hearts and our hearts govern our feelings.  When I am feeling loneliness I need to bring my emotions back to the truth of God's Word - His Word says, "I will never leave you or forsake you."  "I am with you always".  When I am feeling guilt, "there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus."  We need to bring our emotions in line with the truth of His Word and glorify God in our emotions. "






The Giveaway

Marci is generously giving away a gift certificate for $50 to Vision Forum (our favorite Christian online store) to one of our special readers!

My husband and I are expecting our first one in February :D and through the wonderful, providential influence of your blog along with other biblical womanhood blogs, we (both public-schooled) are beginning to see the great value in homeschooling! All to say, I am just starting to look into resources like Vision Forum so I'm excited to enter your giveaway! Thank you for the opportunity and for all the wisdom you pass on to us younger women. :)
