Mom Spot: Times Are A Changin'

As Bob Dylan would say, the times are a changin'. If you've been following Mom In Progress for any length of time you've probably noticed that I post three times a day... it's insane by almost any standard. It was a pace I kept up because, frankly, I couldn't decide what I loved talking about most: my motherhood experiences, things I love in Colorado, or topics of faith and encouragement. So I did all three.

Starting this week, I'm cutting down on posts. Again, if you're new around here, you may not notice a difference. If you are a long time reader, it's going to feel sparse. Look for a couple of Colorado posts 2-3 times a week - I'll still post them mid-day. Look for my personal thoughts on motherhood/parenthood/spousehood about the same amount and posted in the evening. In the morning, I hope you'll still find an encouraging word or an idea to get you excited.

New this fall, you'll find some guest bloggers and more giveaways!! Woo-hoo!

For those of you who are interested, I'm pulling back less because I've decided on what I enjoy writing about most (the jury is still out on that one), but because I am busy serving the community in other ways. I'm coordinating volunteers at my daughter's school and leading a Girl Scout troop. Believe me when I tell you you'll be hearing about both!

Thank for you support and for reading what I write. If there is something you want to hear about you can always send me a comment!! xoxo

Give Thanks: Part 4

KEEP READING FOR A GREAT SCENTSY GIVEAWAY! There is so much to be thankful for, it really is hard to decide what will make these next few posts... but today is an ode to my husband. If there is one thing he loves, it's great smells. Although great smells come from great cooking, they also come from great candles. Now with kids around candles can feel a little risky, but then came Scentsy . This is a "flameless" candle which is actually kind of a throw back to the scented wax warmers that used a candle. No candles here, just plug in the warmer and the small light bulb does all the work. I'm a fan of the nightlight sized warmers, but the larger Scentsy warmers are quite lovely. Browse the entire Holiday Collection to find the one perfect for your home or start thinking about gift giving - the combinations are endless! And look at this festive warmer of the month (10% off): But now we need to talk about fragrance! Silver Bells is the fragrance of the month (als

Mom Spot: Progressive Pioneer

Here is another blog I've come across in recent weeks. She has gorgeous pictures and her post yesterday was truly fantastic. "Maine is pretty rainy in the spring.  And I lived in Oregon for awhile and it defines rainy.  So, a little rain rarely puts me in a gray mood.  In fact, this rainy, rainy spring we've been having here in Utah has actually made me feel quite cheerful!  Each rainy day has felt like something of a celebration." Click HERE to read the entire post - you have to see the photographs! You'll also find all kinds of topics on sustainable and simple living. Enjoy!

Psalm 16

This Psalm has been blessing me. I pray it will bless you too. Thanks to BibleGateway.com for making it so easy to share these beautiful words with you. 16  Preserve me, O God, for in you I  take refuge. 2  I say to the  Lord , “You are my Lord;      I have no good apart from you.” 3  As for  the saints in the land, they are the excellent ones,      in whom is all my delight. 4  The sorrows of those who run after another god shall multiply;      their drink offerings of blood I will not pour out      or  take their names on my lips. 5  The  Lord  is  my chosen portion and my  cup;      you hold my  lot. 6  The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places;      indeed, I have a beautiful inheritance. 7  I bless the  Lord  who  gives me counsel;      in  the night also my  heart instructs me. 8  I have  set the  Lord  always before me;      because he is at my  right hand, I shall not be  shaken. 9  Therefore my heart is glad, and my  whole being rejoices;      my
