My Top 8 Favorite Blogs of 2010

These are going to be in no particular order! I love them all!
So here’s my top 10 favorite Blogs of 2010

1. A Holy Experience – If you have not visited Ann yet – she is a must read. Her blog is peaceful yet heart gripping – she will cause you to worship every time you visit!
2. A Stay At Home Missionary – Joy challenges me! She is just like me – a wife, homeschooling mom, and a joyful homemaker who blogs…but in an instant you will find that her circumstances are nothing like mine. She lives in Indonesia with her missionary pilot husband and 5 children and the joy she exudes in her circumstances humble me! I want to be like her when I grow up!
3. A Moment With Mom – okay I want to be like Jeanette when I grow up too! lol!!! She has 10 children – and on Facebook she is the most cheerful voice of all my friends. This lady wakes with the roosters to her 16 acre farm and 10 children and joy just overflows. Her sunshiny spirit and uplifting emails have taught me so much about being a joyful homemaker.
5. I Take Joy – Sally Clarkson was an author I discovered long before blogging. When I found her blog I was thrilled to be able to interact with her. The first time an email arrived in my inbox from her, I literally squealed out loud (just like I did when I met her in person – sorry Sally – you have that effect – I noticed other women did the same thing lol!)! She has taken the time to listen to some of my blogging struggles and has advised me. She has both challenged and encouraged me and I know that her blog will do the same for you. I am headed to her conference in Texas in February. I’ll be sure to tell you all about it after!
6. Time Warp Wife – Darlene is my new friend this year. Darlene and I have so many things in common it’s almost eerie!!! First, her original blog she wrote many years ago was titled Living Well…ya good title right? lol!!! Then when she returned to blogging this past year, she titled her blog Time Warp Wife…ya, the same name Rachael Ray gave our segment! So we have a few things in common! You will hear more from Darlene next week when I share with you all about her book that just hit the book stands titled Reshaping It All (co-written with Candace Cameron Bure – formerly known as DJ Tanner and sister to Kirk Cameron). In real life, this girl is hilarious – I laugh out loud at my computer when I read her emails! I love seeing her name in my inbox!
8. Ein bisschen Haushalt – This blog title is hard to pronounce isn’t it!? Katja is from Germany and she has been translating some of my posts into German. I have to use google translator when I read her blog. I just consider it an honor to have my blog being translated by this new friend! If you speak German – she’s a must visit!
9. Comfy In The Kitchen – I think you all know that I love Janelle -not only is she a dear friend AND one of my Good Morning Girls but she has also taught me a lot in the kitchen!
10. We Are That Family – I met Kristen at the Relevant Conference and I could have listened to her talk for days. She’s fascinating! My favorite thing about Kristen is her website for Mercy House. She takes all her income from her blog and donates it to her charity Mercy House. That is remarkable and that is worth putting her in the top ten!

Honorable Mention – Money Saving Mom. Crystal is a woman who is not only savvy with her finances but she is faith filled. I admire her integrity.

Those are my favorites – would you share with me? What were some of your favorite blogs to visit in 2010?
