Welcome to Blessed MOMdays Link Up Party!
I am so glad you’re starting your week here! The purpose of this link up party is to bring our community together as we encourage each other in our motherhood journey.
My heart’s desire is that you will be blessed through this link up party posts with inspiration, encouragement and ideas on how to grow in your faith, marriage, family, homeschool, homemaking, career, healthy living habits and so on.
This Week at They Call Me Blessed:
This has been somehow a quiet week on my end. Moms need to rest and take some time to reorganize life in general and watch the Mom Conference. I’ve learned so much from the speakers this year! This was one of these weeks where I had to take a break from doing and focus on learning.
Monday began with Thanksgiving celebration here in Canada and we had my in-laws and two friends over for dinner. I have to (not so humbly) say that my turkey was amazing!! I think we ate turkey every day for 4 days in a row. Glad we will only have turkey again on Christmas Eve.
I wrote no blog posts this week! No shame in saying that because I’ve learned to blog on my own terms. That doesn’t mean I wasn’t busy behind the scenes either! We launched our They Call Me Blessed Moms private group on Facebook and now we can grow even closer together.
I made two huge decisions this week!
One, I enrolled my youngest on a local preschool three times a week on mornings so she can have fun playing with other kids while I work one on one with my two oldest in our homeschool. It was tough decision to make for many reasons I plan to share on Periscope and here on the blog too.
Two, I started a business with only $1! Can you believe that? $1 only! I joined a company I wanted to join for years! And I couldn’t be more excited about it. I love their products, I love their values and their mission to empower women to own their own business. You can learn more about it here. And watch all my excitement in this video (just don’t mind my mess and my huge pile of laundry to fold!).
This week also, I hosted our First Poetry Teatime Co-op meeting! We had so much fun! I’m planning to share it all in details with you this week at the blog. So stay tuned!
I also hosted my fifth Illustrated Faith Bible Journaling 101 workshop at our local Christian bookstore. Our Bible Journaling Club on Facebook has grown to over 200+ members and it just keeps getting better and better!
And as I type this to you, I’m attending our third day of a wonderful Marriage & Family Conference! My cup is overflowing! God is good!
7 Things I’m Looking Forward To This Week:
- Celebrating the Feast of Tabernacles with my family
- Fun co-op this Monday on our local library
- 100 Days of Intimacy challenge with my husband
- Start reading my new pile of books I bought during the marriage and family conference
- Thirty-One’s Birthday Bash Party on Facebook this Thursday
- My 6th Illustrated Faith – Bible Journaling Workshop next Saturday
- Rest! Lots of it in between all these exciting things happening this week

Wow, Ana! Not only did you have a monumental week, but sounds like another one is on its way! So happy for the blessings God bestows and the peace He grants just when we need it! Linking up and wishing you a great week! – Carlen
