Recently Discovered Blogs

In the past week I have added a number of blogs to my Google Reader that I’m really enjoying and would love to share. But, let me start with a little preface… In the past I have primarily read blogs about Christianity, church, theology, and the like. But, lately I don’t have much time or energy to spend thinking about theology or theorizing about church. My mental energy is instead spent on thoughts about when to start my baby on solid foods, how to get him to take good naps, what to make for dinner, and other homemaking topics. Because of this shift in focus the types of blogs that I read have also changed.

Don’t get me wrong on the rare moment when my son is sleeping soundly or my husband is watching him I still love to read and learn from blogs like Godspace and The Carnival in My Head. But, for this season in my life when I have a spare moment the blogs that I go to first have been blogs that deal with the day-to-day stuff that I’m currently thinking about. They are blogs that deal with what it means to be an intentional and thoughtful parent, what it means to eat healthy and feed your family real food, they are blogs that deal with strategies for getting organized and keeping an organized home. A few of them are food blogs that are just so beautiful that taking a few minutes out of my day to look at the pictures and dream about the food can change my whole mood.

So, here are the blogs that I’ve recently discovered and keep coming back to whenever I can between laundry, nursing, and dishes:
