I've Learned...

I've learned many things from reading other ladies' blogs:

~to make laundry soap from scratch
~to count my blessings
~to sew tea wallets
~to sew a tote bag
~to make bread from scratch
~to make new soups
~to make new desserts
~to put photos on my blog
~to decorate my blog
~to make paper snowflakes
~to be more frugal
~to enjoy great music on Pandora.
~to enjoy new artists and works of art
~to make a refill for my foam soap dispenser
~to enjoy my family more
~to enjoy the seasons more
~to write better
~to get free books for writing reviews
~to use YouTube to find video tutorials
~to enjoy new genres of reading and new authors
~to make, do, and enjoy lots of things
~to be more self-sufficient in pursuing the
old-fashioned arts
~to get closer to the LORD Jesus Christ.

It is great to be part of a bigger community of Christian ladies who believe in femininity not feminism, home living, homemaking, homeschooling, and making do with what we've got.

Thank you ladies!

What have you learned from other bloggers?

God bless you all...
Please continue to pray for the tornado recovery in Joplin and surrounding areas.


  1. Wow, you have learned a lot! Great post! :)

  2. Nice to see you in action! Blogging is wonderful, isn't it!

  3. That's a great photo of you, you look so happy rolling that out, you could make some cute cards up with that photo, color or sepia tone it a bit & it would love very antique. I love the smile on your face!
    Let's see a bit of my list: making-
    yogurt, laundry soap, recipes, & tote bags, some blog posting (very much a novice at this), more wood crafting, frugal topics, some very beginner quilting with a walking foot, and last year we made folding tomato racks, sort of a mini clothes style shape, they worked very well. Oh, I also learned there are numerous cat folks out there besides my neighbors down the street!! I must have seen a zillion pictures of people's favorite feline buddies! This was a great post!

  4. I think I need a Laura It's been forever since we've had a chance to chat.

  5. I love this! I have been so blessed by the homeschooling blogsophere.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. I am following you now :)

  6. Laura, what a wonderful tribute to the world of blog. I too have learned so much and feel so blessed. There are so many of the people that I have met through blogging that feel like a friend I have had forever. Happy to have met you! Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  7. Oh, I must make a tea wallet! Great idea! Thank you for joining Home Sweet Home!

  8. Hi Sherry!

    I've really enjoyed mine. I've sold some in my etsy shop, but don't have any for sale right now. I've got to get busy sewing. ~smile~

    Right now, I'm going to pop over and visit your blog!


  9. Hi Laura mom of 4 from another Laura mom of 4! Just saw your blog for the first time from Teach me Tuesdays. I agree these blogging ladies are a deep well of knowledge. I have learned so much from them as well. Love your blog!

  10. Hi Laura,

    At first, I was confused by your comment.
    You see, one of my best friends in real life is also
    Laura Smith! She has five children. ~smile~

    Thank you! You're just so kind.

    I'm coming to visit you at Ever Pursuing!

  13. You're so right Stephanie.


  14. Yes me too, I have learned so much from the blogging community and others on the internet. Probably far more than I would have without it. And I continue to find more to learn, and lovely people that are willing to share ~smiles~

    Your list is a great one, and I hope it continues to grow. I love the photo of you, it oozes homemaker to me.

    Have a Blessed weekend,


  15. Hello Tania,
    Thank you for "talking back". I find that blogging has been great for me as well.

Thank you for praying for me! Thank you for encouraging me so much through this cancer treatment. I have the best blog friends in the world! Yes! You!

I read all your comments and respond as I can right now.
Please make sure I have your email if you want me to respond or pray for you. For some reason Blogger isn't notifying me of comments right now, so I may be a bit slower.

God bless you all! This life only works with Jesus. The next life is a continuation of this one—make sure you spend it with Jesus. Jesus is the only way to God the Father!

Your blog friend,
