Round the Sphere Again

From Women4God Blogs, more examples of the diversity of experiences among Christian women:
  • Molly of my three pennies worth tells me she lives in the frozen north, too. She describes herself as
    ....a 29 year old lover of Yahweh, and thinks she got hitched to the world's best husband (plus, he said he'd take me out for dinner if I'd type that). She is also the insufferably proud mother of 5 youngsters (the #5 being due this May), wonderer of wonderings, thinker of thoughts, and humble offerer (is "offerer" even a word?) of opinions...
    In Stay Home Mom (The Dark Side or Just the Sad Side?), Molly suggests that a little training and preparation for the difficult job of being a stay-at-home-mom might make things a little easier.
    The logistics required and the tasks you are called to perform as a sahm are overwhelming, I'll be the first to admit. But I'm not sure if the fault lies in the "unspoken dark side" of staying home. I think that miserable side is there, for the most part, simply because we walked into something completely unprepared for the job. So the answer isn't going to be found in voicing our complaints louder. It's in properly preparing the next generation of mothers, so that they don't have to flail through all the confusion and unexpected "surprises" that we've had bogging us down.

  • Ups N Downs. Lori introduces her blog like this:
    Welcome! If you have ever wondered what it'like to raise a child with a developmental delay, here is your chance to peek into our lives and find out.
    In this post, Lori laments the premium place on perfection in our society.
    According to the March of Dimes, one out of every 28 babies born in the U.S. will have some type of birth defect. That is over 150,000 babies per year. The U.S. Census Bureau estimates that 20% of the population has some sort of disability. With statistics such as these, it is surprising to me that magazines, television, and movies pretty much ignore this part of the population.

And from our token man in this installment of our blog stroll, more on the names of God from The Irvins.
