NAS: Fave "Mom" Blogs!!!

Ok, here is the deal.

All of us who participate with the Not Alone Series are single, as in, not yet married.  We came together because we felt that there was a need to talk about the things that WE deal with every day.  BUT... we have all come to know and love all the people who have blogs out there who are married, have kids and talk about the blessings and struggles of that vocation.

A vocation that most of us feel called to.

So, we shouldn't just stop reading them!  And trust me, I have not! :)  It's a great way to learn about our vocations AND feel encouraged... they have all been where we are.  It's true, they have.

This week, we are giving them a shout-out!  To all you "mom" blogs (yes, I realize this is a generalization, but married-but-may-or-may-not-have-kids blogs, is a bit much!) out there... WE LOVE YOU!  We enjoy reading about your lives and learning about the Lord just by you living your vocation.  It's beautiful and encouraging.

Ok... here we go!

Seriously, I love her.  Kathryn is hilarious, loves the Lord, a great writer, has 5 beautiful kids, adores her hubby and is just real.  Realer than real, you guys.

Ok, yes... Mart is my best friend, BUT, I would read her blog no matter what.
She approaches the faith in such a great way that is delicate, but challenging.  It's been SO fun to watch her navigate through becoming a wife and now a mama.  It's just beautiful.

I am not sure how I found this one, but I am so happy I did.
Rahki is just the sweetest and has some AMAZING reflections.  She is funny and writes really well.
Plus her two littles are just ADORBS!

Um, Brianna has an incredible story.  She is a devout Catholic mom with 8 kiddos, 4 of whom are adopted, 2 of whom have Down's Syndrome.  She is an amazing writer, talking about all sorts of things related to the faith AND motherhood.  Seriously, check her out!

Another Martha, but I do not know her in real life. :)
I found her randomly, and have really enjoyed her writings.
She is also navigating through married life AND becoming a momma.

Well, I could go on and on.  I should probably add Conversion Diary and Camp Patton and House Unseen, but I feel those are just givens.  Ok... annnnnd Savor His Goodness (Caitlin is always SO positive which is great, and she and her hubby are expecting their first babe!) and Captive the Heart (ok, this is more of a wedding type blog, BUT Stephanie does write about her personal life, too. She and her hubby are ALSO expecting their first babe!)!  Ok.  I am stopping now.

What "mom" blogs do YOU love?!

Next Week:
NFP, baby!
(So, who has begun charting?!  How is it going?  What advice do you have?  If you haven't, why not?  Are you considering?)

October 1:
Careers as a Vocation?
(How do we know what God's call is for us if we are focused on our careers?  Is it appropriate to focus on that career and then get married/enter religious life later?  Or maybe the call/vocation IS the career and you could be single?)

October 8:
Fave Recipes... for one!
(ok, or a small crowd!)

October 15:
Chastity
(... as a single person.  Be it physical or emotional)

October 22:
Patience
(when you find yourself becoming really impatient, or struggling with your life to "really" begin, how do you combat it? Do you do anything? How can we support one another in this area?)

Morgan is doing the linking up today! :) Head on over!
