"That they (the older women) admonish the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed." Titus 2:4-5

Ultimate Blog Party 2010


Ultimate Blog Party 2010

Hey there party goers! Wondering what this crazy blogger is ranting about? I'm super excited about the 2010 UBP over at 5 minutes for Moms. It's the place to be this week! You can enter to win prizes and meet tons of new people online. It's a fabulous way to network every year. So come and join us!

If you're stopping by from the party, Hello! I'll give you a quick rundown of my blog, Christian Frugal Mama! The name says it all really, but here's what I've been working on and doing on my blog.




My newest endeavor is my Mom Monday event which takes place every Monday and is themed. This past week was all about Pregnancy. It's still new, si I'm working everything out and would LOVE your input and advice. The goal of the Mom Monday posts is to encourage and support moms by having a place where we can share information, advice and encouragement about our momhood journey. Every week will have a Sponsor and Giveaway and there are many, many ways to enter. This week's giveaway is for a children's prayer book, so go take a look and enter to win! Mom Mondays are posted every Monday at 7Am and I hope you'll come back and join us, we'd love your wise input!

Throughout the week I try to do my best to help others save money, encourage others in their momhood journey and to be a Christian encouragement as well. I've cut back a lot on my online time because I now have two little girls and I'm constantly striving to learn how to balance out my time. I haven't achieved it yet, but I'm working on it! Here are a few of the categories I try to regularly post:
I hope you like what you see here and if you do, you can sign up to be a follower at the left, a fan on Facebook, a twitter follower or a feed reader. Let me a comment and I'll do my best to come and stop by on your site to encourage you as well! Have a fantastic week party goers!

Here are my two adorable reasons to not spend too much time online:

Lizzy (2 1/2)

Lily (9 months)

So glad you stopped by and followed. I'm following back! Those are three perfectly delicious reasons to stay off the computer! :) I am looking forward to reading more of your blog! :)

LindsayDianne on April 10, 2010 at 2:50 PM said...

Hey there! It's so nice to meet you. This party thing is SO much fun! I want to spend hours at each blog.
Your children are all beautiful, and it's always important to be firm on your beliefs, whatever they may be.
I'm always looking for new, nutritious recipes to make for my family, and if you have any specific nutrition posts, I also host a Friday Linkup that you can feel free to add your posts about food and a healthy outlook.
I can say for sure that I'll be back to see what you have to say. :)

Linda on April 10, 2010 at 5:12 PM said...

Hi! Thanks for stopping by my blog. You asked for input on the carnival and the only thing I can think of is that having a theme makes it more difficult for people to participate. I say that from experience with my own carnival, and from participating in others. You might do better to open it up to any Mom related topic. I hope that helps.

Nicole on April 10, 2010 at 5:42 PM said...

Thanks for visiting me at My Real Review!! You are right, those are two very good (and adorable) reasons to keep off the computer :-)

Happy UBP week!!

PS I think the poster above me has great advice re: your Monday meme

Momma Such on April 10, 2010 at 7:58 PM said...

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog party!

Have a great weekend! :)

Visiting from the UBP and I just have to say that you're children have the most adorable squishy cheeks I've ever seen :D Hoping you have a great week!

bigguysmama on April 11, 2010 at 2:10 AM said...

My goodness, those 2 little girls are darling!! I think the Monday meme is a great idea! I started a Mimi's Messy Monday "meme" but haven't had any takers!! Might be something I just need to do for myself for a while. I even forgot last Monday. It's to encourage people to clean 1 spot for 1/2 an hour and take before & after shots & blog about it. Might be a stretch for some, helpful for me!

Thanks for visiting my Woven by Words!

I'm excited about your Mondays for Moms. I never feel like I know what I'm doing, and it WOULD be nice to have someone to talk to!

Nice to "meet" you!

Stopping by to say welcome to the party! I love your blog! It sort of combines the two blogs I write - one about being a Christian homemaker and one about using coupons to save money.
Have a blessed weekend!
