Recently I have discovered a whole world of Mormon Mommy Bloggers who are engaged in some amazing work online. My daughter told me about Shawni Pothiers Blog 71 Toesa few months ago. Shawni has several sisters and in laws who are dedicated Mom Bloggers and as I have explored the work they are doing, I felt it would be a great idea to share some of their links and thoughts on my own blog.
Shawni’s sister Saren has a web site called The Power of Moms A Gathering Place for Deliberate Mothers. Saren also writes a family blog called Five Kids in Five Years.
I don’t have much time for blog reading, as I spend quite a bit of my time doing my own internet work and reading about politics, but I have been so impressed with the intention these women put into their Mothering that I felt like a shout out was in order.

Interview with Sharon on The Jenny Hatch Show
Married for almost 17yrs I’m a mom of 7 great kids, 6 who walk and 1 who flies, ages 15 years to 16 months. I’ve had a few varieties of birthing experiences and alternative healthcare. I love simple natural living and sharing about the wonderful things God has provided that SUPPORTS the mind, body, spirit and environment. I have a little mantra, “Life is to short to hang out with emotional chickens”…dig deep and get real, WAKE -UP to who you REALLY are and take the COURAGE to Live Your Truth!!
I’m ALWAYS learning!!! I’m currently delving into Energy Medicine, a phenomenally FAST way to heal emotionally and spiritually!! I’m growing a life coaching business where I facilitate others to awaken to their own healing and personal answers to life. We are all powerful co-Creators with the Universe and everyone has a message and purpose to share with those around them.
So the President is going to propose a new economic plan after his vacay at Marthas Vineyard.
He should not waste the mental energy attempting to put it together, Ayn Rand has already done the heavy lifting on that topic by taking Collectivism in America to its logical conclusion with Directive 10-289 in the chapter Miracle Metal of Atlas Shrugged.
Ayn used Fiction to help her readers understand what Marxism “Looked Like” in real life by creating fictional characters who could be played today by any of the secular humanists currently embedded in our National Government.
I have been planning to write this post for some time now, years it feels like, and someday I plan to encapsulate these thoughts into a book written for young women. For now, I’ll try to take the mishmash of my thoughts and attempt to get something readable into the blogosphere.
I have spent untold hours reading commentary on economics these past few decades (Bar none fav author is Thomas Sowell). And with the upsurge in concerns about the economy, it feels like so many of my favorite authors have been waxing far more eloquent than I with conservative ideas for fixing the broken parts of the American Economy.
Some of the most recent liberal and conservative ideas being thrown around include limiting family size to 2 children, decelebritizing mothers who give birth to multiples, and there has been a whole lotta talk about some sort of a ginormous government stimulus to “create jobs“.
From the presidents own web site he encapsulates the feds doing the following for we the people: (All on the nickel of our future children and grandchildren)
(NaturalNews) The horrific saga of Maryanne Godboldo’s battle with domestic terrorists in the government of her home state of Michigan appear to finally be coming to an end. The Detroit Free Press reports that two higher courts have confirmed the ruling of a lower court several months ago that Godboldo’s refusal to administer the dangerous Risperdal drug to her daughter was fully legal, and that all charges and actions taken against her by the state were unwarranted. In case you missed the story, Child Protective Services (CPS) in Michigan sent a SWAT team and tank to Godboldo’s Detroit home back in April after the mother refused to keep giving her 13-year-old daughter Risperdal (risperidone), a dangerous schizophrenia drug that had been causing her daughter to experience severe adverse reactions. Godboldo’s doctor had recommended that she discontinue use of the drug, but CPS felt otherwise, and decided to launch a full-scale terrorist raid on the woman’s home, where they proceeded to illegally kidnap her daughter.
Early in my pregnancy, I was clear that the greatest gift I could give to my husband and children was the experience of the blessing way. I felt somewhat shy and embarrassed to organize my own ceremony – but had a very clear vision of how I wanted it to go. I felt confident that if I did nothing else during this child’s gestation – the feelings and power associated with a family blessing way would be the most important “prenatal care” we could experience. So, being the little red hen that I am, I set out to create the ceremony that would serve our family best.

“THERE is a dreaded procedure routinely performed on expectant mothers that makes most cringe and fear their birth experience. It’s called an episiotomy. An episiotomy is a procedure in which a surgical incision is made in the tissues of the birth canal just before the baby’s head is born. This cut causes trauma to the woman’s genital region, requires stitches after the birth, and is a matter that is considered a violation of the woman’s human rights amongst natural childbirth advocates.
This medical intervention has been done routinely for decades. However, those who stay current with scientific research have all but abandoned the procedure. Sadly, I find it lingering on as a matter of routine in the practice of several of the local obstetricians I have personally spoken to. I also receive similar feedback from many of my clients who have asked me about the procedure after discussing it with their doctors in both Saudi Arabia and in Egypt.
Dr. Stuart Fischbein is a strong supporter of patients rights to informed consent and refusal. He believes a patient has the right to choose her own path given true and not skewed informed consent. Following that tenet, just as a woman should be able to choose to have an elective c/section she should be able to choose not to have one, as well. He believes the American system of hospital based obstetric practice has been eroding those choices for women for quite some time. Due to concerns of economics, expediency and fears of litigation women are being coerced to make choices that may not be in their best interest.
On this show we will be discussing Breech Birth. He believes that term breech presentation should be treated as just a variation of normal.
The kit made twenty small bars of soap. Then I purchased two more kits and made some Rose Oil soap and included the petals from a dozen red roses.
My daughters will be heading back to school in a few days and it was so fun to have Shelly come ask me if she could take some of my soap back with her. I happily handed her half a dozen bars.
This was a fun project. And except for the dishwasher exploding with an overwhelm of bubbles when I tossed my double boiler in without scraping the hardened soap, relatively painles, and a new way to create lucious soap for just a few dollars.
