Your thoughts?

So the deal with blogging is that most of my computer time nowadays happens one-handed. While I compose interesting emails and updates in my mind, they're just not getting written. I've been trying to schedule in five minutes of writing time each day just for sanity and creativity's sake, but most posts are longer than five minutes' worth anyway. "Maybe tomorrow" is my current motto.

In the meantime, feel free to post here links to any reading material or even audio content that you think I'd enjoy checking out. If you're a mother, is there anything in particular you do/did while nursing? Or was it all about the baby?

-sermon audio?
-Bible commentary?
-language learning?
-books on Kindle?

I like missionary and "mommy" blogs, but I try not to get into a comparing myself rut, so I aim to keep a good balance. Just anything uplifting that you'd like to share, I'm open to! (Ugh, just butchered the English language)


  1. If you have an iphone, Draw Something is really fun to play while nursing. I also get a daily devotional email called "Encouragement for Today" from Proverbs 31 ministries. They're simple and short and typically geared towards moms. I normally read them while nursing in the morning.

    I remember in the beginning with Elyse feeling like all I ever did was nurse. But that changes so quickly! She's 5 months old now, and only nurses once every 3-4 hours during the day, and she's done in 10 minutes. I probably read about half the time while I'm nursing her, and the other half of the time just enjoy baby snuggles :)

  2. You saying that you're trying to do 5 minutes a day made me think of this blog:

    She does a thing called "Five Minute Fridays", where you write for 5 minutes straight and then stop, then link up with her blog. I've never done it, I've just read it. :)

    She does have a really great blog on motherhood and such...check it out!

    (Congrats by the way!)

  3. I like the IDEA of 5-minute Fridays, but I don't know if I'd be able to follow the rules! Isn't there no editing allowed? Also, assigned topics are hard. Maybe if I kept a list of my own topics...

    Cristi, thanks for the input! I will have to check out the Proverbs 31 site. Your little girl looks so cute!

  4. Here's a fun, uplifting blog:
