Day #9 Blogs I Enjoy

*Disclaimer - By introducing these blogs, I am not saying I agree with every word these people write.

I have been reading Big Mama & Boo Mama for several years now. Big's writing makes me smile, as living a life as a "child of the eighties" influence comes through from time to time. I love the music & book references. On Friday, she does Fashion Friday. You can check her out
here. http://thebigmamablog.com/

Boo Mama lives in Birmingham & her blog makes me laugh out loud. I love her Southernisms.  Anyway, you can read Boo here if you want to. www.boomama.net

If you really want some entertainment, Big & Boo have done a few podcasts that you can find and listen to on ITunes. Search for the Big Boo Cast. Travis Cottrell (aka Fry Daddy) has been their guest several times & his imitation of Neil Diamond makes me laugh every time I hear it. 

Lots of Scotts is another blog I enjoy. Jennifer is the mom of triplets & married to a surgeon.  As you can see, we have SO much in common! I love the way she sees truth & depth in everyday situations and just writes about life as it happens in her world. You can check her out here http://lotsofscotts.blogspot.com/

Beth Moore blogs. Enough said. http://blog.lproof.org/

http://lysaterkeurst.com/ is another good one. Lysa is the coordinator of Proverbs 31 Ministries. I've heard her speak several times & I'm about to start one of her Bible studies with a group of women on Wednesday nights at my church.

My brother-in-law, Mark, is a counselor & I love his insight, about marriage, relationships, life period. http://www.markdebord.com/counselors-corner.html

Jana writes her about life in the South, with her family of four. http://endrishomehappenings.blogspot.com/ I have known Jana since as far back as I can remember - our dads were pastors in Grant Parish in Louisiana back in the 70's. Her folks still live in central La. while my folks are now up north in Ouachita Parish.

Vicki Courtney has written numerous books about parenting (girls) that I have read & reread. She also has published a few issues of BeTween, which is a magazine type of writing for Tween girls. The last one was based on Proverbs. Both Katie & Mary Margaret have enjoyed these & pick them back up to read from time to time. Great resource! http://vickicourtney.com/

Denny Burk is a professor at Boyce College, which is under the arm of the seminary in Kentucky. I knew Denny at La Tech when he was a freshman in my family at the BSU. I enjoy reading his writing because it makes me think. http://www.dennyburk.com/

Dr. Marshall (my pastor) blogs. I smile when I read what he writes. http://www.secondbaptist.org/john316-blog-post/?post_id=1349537280

This blog is for mothers of daughters. http://modsquadblog.com/

This one is for wives of ministers. http://www.flourish.me/Blog/

This is The Nester, whose philosophy is "I've got a secret that will unlock creativity and hope for your home. Ready? Here it is: It doesn't have to be perfect to be beautiful. Yep. That's it. All you have to do is believe it." She is the blogger that challenged her readers to write for 31 days in October. But I still haven't figured out how in the world to link over there. But if you want to meet hundreds of other bloggers, you can do it from her blog. www.thenester.com.

Happy reading!
