what an awesome job Danielle. You put so much time and love into all of those gifts. I've been thinking about you lately and wanted to know if you would like to start a crochet/knit group for our church? I haven't talked to anyone about this yet except Teryl from our church (she also crochet's) She is open to it. Let me know what you think. Talk to you soon.

Danielle,

I did not see a more recent blog, so I am posting a comment here. I hope you get it. You faith shines through very clearly in your blog. What an encouragement!

I would like to introduce myself. I am a new WAHM and am excited to begin networking with moms and grandmothers who are juggling the many roles they have in life just as I am. I had a 15 year career as an accountant for a publicly traded company and I missed out on so many of the precious moments in the lives of my boys. In August of ’07 I finally took the step of faith and left my full-time employment so that I could have the time, energy, and flexibility to focus on the needs of my tween (age 12) and 1st grader (age 6).
I have built a website which focuses on the essentials of family living, hence the name ~ www.essentialfamilyliving.com. One of my favorite topics of discussion is Family Fun Night and I have dedicated much of my blog space to this subject.

I would love for you to view my site and blog then comment with any suggestions, advice, or encouragement. Thank you for the consideration.

Blessing on your day!
