Great discipline! I'll miss you, though!

Marla Taviano

Praying for you! I'll miss you!


Take the time you need! Please don't be so hard on yourself(post below about Memory Monday) I am working from home today and realized that I too am pushing myself way too much. I just decided to take a break do my memory monday and check in on you. I will keep you and your Dh in my prayers. Actually prior to your post about requesting prayers I had included the two of you. Hugs and love and PLEASE enjoy spring break. :)

I am new to your blog, after reading your wonderful Simple Life. I have so many pages earmarked, it would be easier to count the ones not turned down! I've bought several for gifts in the future and will begin going over it with my 17 yo daughter! Can you tell that I was impressed?

Have a wonderful Spring Break and remember those principles of which you wrote!! I will continue to check in with you to see how seminary is going. That has always been a secret dream of mine!

Enjoy your break. Hope it is a good and restful week for you!


Have a nice clear thinking, good reading week! If I had a whole week to do such things, I fear I would waste time. I have many leisurely days - just me and my 3 yr. old, while my older two are in school. Many days it will near noon, and I will still be in my PJ's and I will think, WHAT have I done today. I need to snap out of that!


Enjoy your study break. I hope you get a lot out of it. Sometimes you really do need to unplug from everything and go into your own little world!

I'm in my last year of studying for my primary school teaching degree and told everyone that I'd be hibernating this year!

Good luck. I'll miss your updates though!


you really ARE gone all week!


ps - make it count!


I got your book today! I am SO excited!!!! Thank you!


I also got my copy of the book today! Thanks! Is it sad that I actually got teary when I read the acknowlegement to your blog readers? :)


Missing you!


I hope that you're having a wonderful break, Joanne! Because you've inspired me so often with your crafts and cooking and commitment to family (and above all, your faith in our Lord), I gave you the Creative Blogger award.

God's blessings to you and Toben and the girls! :-)
