My passions are God, Family, Homeschool, and encouraging stay at home moms/housewives. My blog Peace Creek on the Prairie (http://peacecreekontheprairie), covers all of those. I am the mother to six children. B age 10.5, G 7.5, G 5, B 4, B 2.5, and G 17 mos. Three of those have special needs in learning issues, 10.5 dysgraphia, along the Asperger spectrum, and SPD, 4 yr old has speech delays, and SPD tendencies, and 17 mo has SPD, and possible hearing and speech issues. 17 mo had a rough start, full term but very sick, spending 10 days in NICU/Special care, and will prayerfully outgrow some of her issues.
I am married to one awesome farmer, and love to drive tractors, combines, trucks and such when it works out for me.
I love cooking, baking, gardening, sewing, scrapbooking, nature study, and blog designing.

I strive to be a Godly wife and mother, and am making changes toward that improvement all of the time.
I am eager to learn more, and keep working towards what God would have me be.
Nice to be here. i look forward to this.
I have not read this book, but have loved Daughters of Sarah, Created to be his Help meet, and The Surrendered Wife, among others.
Hey verybles! Yes, that book is one that seems to scream a monthly review at least! I know I need to keep re-reading it. The scriptures she points out don't get preached on in most churches.verybles wrote:I will have to see if I can get this book. Money is tight right now. Can you get it at Borders or a regular bookstore, or do you have to order it?
If money is tight (and I can definitely understand), I can lend my copy to you if you want. I wouldn't give it to you just because it's all marked up and written in! (unless you don't mind all that...mine is also an older version). You can get it from Amazon for $9.58 (including shipping).

Melissa, Multi-tasking Mama
I am Dawn. Married to my high school sweetheart for 22 years this Thursday! He's still the love of my life and my best friend on earth. We have been blessed with seven amazing children, 5 here at home, and 2 whom we have been working to bring home from Guatemala for over 5 years. Our children are G18, G16, G14, B11, G8, G7, and B5 1/2. You can keep up with our adoption journey on my blog: A Life Outside The Box I'm SO happy to be here and to learn, share, and grow with like-minded women!

I'm Sherry, wife to a wonderful husband for 24 years and a homeschooling mama of 7, DS 20, DS 16, DD 14, DS 11, DS 8, DD 5, and DD 5. With a daughter in her early teens I am really excited to be learning more about being a Godly wife so that I can pass on to her what I have had to learn the hard way. I love to craft, crochet, read, take pictures, and am learning to scrapbook. We live in Ireland (moved here almost two years ago) and have been enjoying learning to live here.

I've been married to my fantastic husband for 19 1/2 years. Our children are:
dd16, dd12, dd10, ds7, dd4, ds2, dd4mo. We also have 3 angels we never got to hold.
My dh is a pastor working to become a licensed counselor. He's struggling with this because the state wants him to "leave the religion behind" and he is unwilling to deny Christ.
We've been homeschooling for 11 years. I actually can't wait to get started this year!
To avoid confusion with the other Dawn, I'll sign everything Bubbles.
