The Art of Home-Making Mondays ~ Please Join Us ~ Link Up #51

"There is, somehow, a wonderful power about a mother’s voice, when she talks to her children about Jesus and his love, which stamps itself upon the heart, and the heart is a far better place for the custody of truth than ever the brain can become."
~ Spurgeon
There are so many wonderful features in the making of a home. This is a place where I would love for you to share your love for anything home-related. Homemakinghomeschooling and homesteading are all a part of the lovely art of home-making!

~~Please link up posts in the spirit of Titus 2 and Proverbs 31 (such as recipes, godly encouragement, DIY's, frugal living, child-raising, medicine making, preparedness, gardening, home decoration, school lessons, sewing, crafts, etc).~~ You are welcome to share as many posts as you like!


 Ways to Enhance Your Link Up Experience to Make it Lovely:

~ Drink a cup of tea or coffee as you peruse the posts.

~ Visit an article with similar interests and leave a comment. She who likes visitors should also try to visit :)

~ Return a visit to someone who has left you a kind comment, the "Golden Rule" is always lovely when applied.

~ Show that you have similar interests by publicly "following" that person's blog. Many will choose to follow you back and that is how a                                                              sweet community is born.

And finally, thank you for joining us each week! It is a pleasure to have you :)


* Today we are featuring our favorite 5 posts from Last Week *

{I would love for you to choose a few of these hand-picked posts and leave some comment love!}

1. Fudge, Glorious Fudge by Healthy Simplicity ~ This fudge recipe sounds amazing and best of all, it is not "junk food"! I plan on substituting the sweetener with raw honey when I try it, what about you?

2. A Collection of Spring Quotes by Alicia Gratehouse ~ I have a penchant for quotes and Alisha shares some beautiful ones about spring. These would make lovely entries in your journals, nature notebooks or homeschool copywork!

3. Looking for the Perfect and Godly Christian Family by The Life of This Mother ~ Many of us have an "ideal" Christian family in our head which may turn out to be a hindrance for our own unique family. I think you will appreciate these wise words.

4. Clay Steam Pot and Cast Iron Thrift Store Finds by the Butt'ry and Book'ry ~ What a nifty post! First of all, Linnie shares about a clay steaming pot (which I have never heard of) and how to use it. She also includes some handy cooking tips using her thrift store finds. I just really enjoyed reading this and I think you will too!

5. Planting Pretty Flowers by American Honey Home ~ And finally, Trisha shares a sweet section of her yard and how she made it lovely with little touches. I love all the vintage goodies she used, so very pretty!
