Welcome to the Waiting on...Wednesday link-up - a place where you can link up what you are waiting on, going through, making, anything - as long as it's family-friendly!  :)  After you link up, please make sure to read a few others - and don't forget to tell them you found them at Waiting on...Wednesday!  

I'm beyond excited to introduce you to my co-host for the month of May!  Please welcome Jennifer from Chaos2Peace!  I'm so glad Jennifer is joining me this month and we can't wait to see what you share with us!

Week after week I continue to find posts that challenge me, inspire me, and make me want to make a bigger difference with my life.  Thank you for stopping by and for sharing your posts with us!  This week's features all have a common theme - amazing women and how you can celebrate them! You'll definitely want to stop by and show these ladies some love!

Waiting on...Wednesday link-up @ While I'm Waiting...

What am I waiting on?  Actually, it's more along the lines of what a friend has been waiting on!  Today is a very exciting day for Melanie Redd!  Her book "How to Win Your Child's Heart for Life" comes out TODAY!!!  Melanie was so sweet to send me an advanced copy and I can tell you, this book is full of great advice!  So, so, so many times I have commented to my friends, "I just want my kids to WANT to come and see me once they move out!" when in reality what I'm trying to say is, "I really hope I have their heart for life"! If you want children, have children, have raised children, or just know a child - this book is for you!  And, since Mother's Day is on Sunday, I have a little giveaway to share!!!  It's a basket full of things I know you will love - an autographed copy of Melanie's new book, jewelry, and CHOCOLATE! :)  I'll choose a winner on Mother's Day and mail out the goodies early next week!  Good luck!

  1. Thanks Holly for featuring Maria's post and the I am Woman series. I loved what she wrote and the more we can spread her message around, the better! Great giveaway too! Wishing you a wonderful Mother's Day!

  2. When the going gets tough...I remind myself of the end goal. Not to raise children; but to train up a Godly generation of Soldiers for Christ. It's not about me; it's all about HIM!

  3. How to not get tired of doing good as a mom??

    Think long-term...think of the future...keep it all in perspective.

  4. Woo glad you've got Jennifer on board with you for the month. Am already a huge fan of hers! She rocks. Together, you two will be such a dynamic duo! :) Thank you for hosting!

  5. Thanks for hosting and what a great giveaway! When I get tired or frustrated, I am encouraged to be a Godly influence on my son.

  6. WooHoo! I'm excited about this, Holly!
    How fun that two of my favorite young moms are getting together on a link up! Love this!
    And, thanks for including my book in the giveaway!
    I'm blessed!


I love when you leave comments! So...what are you waiting for?! :)
