Liked by Kari Kampakis

Every girl or boy, growing up, wants to be liked. Am I right? With every changing year, it gets harder.

Back when I was younger, we had slam books and such like that. We didn't have social media. Even now, as an adult, I watch for the people to like on my posts. As a blogger, I want people to follow my page. When my numbers fall, I take it personally. What did I do wrong? Did I not have enough giveaways? Did they not like my opinion?

I try so hard to give my kids the positive attention that they need. I try to remind them every day how much I love them and am proud of them. But, as most parents know, children don't always hear what parent say. But they hear their friends. " hey, are you really going to eat all that"? Makes a girl wonder if she is getting fat. It's that sort of input that makes our kids question themselves.

"For anyone tire of the quest to impress and ready to rest in God's unconditional love...Liked is the answer".

Liked reads like a devotional. Even as an adult this is a good read. But I recommend this book for any teen girl who is struggling. Kari does a great job is helping with the positive.

How to Manage Your Home Without Losing Your Mind by Dana K. White

As a full time mom with a household of 12, my stress level and feeling of losing my mind, is a daily occurrence. I am also an introvert which doesn't help. I avoid Parent Teacher conferences for the older kids. (I have really good kids so this isn't a big thing)

My kids all have chores and yet I find myself, daily, wondering where in the heck this mess came from. I have friends, who also have kids, that I wonder if their kids move. Their houses are immaculate and yet apologize for the mess. I usually chuckle and say "what mess". But then I feel like my house looks like the local dump! I trip out whenever someone shows up unannounced. No one shows up, when the house is clean....

With all this said, YOU ARE NOT ALONE!

In 2009, after years of feeling like a failure because traditional organizing advice didn't work for her, Dana started on what she now calls her deslobification journey. She chronicled her struggles, successes and failures on her wildly popular blob. A Slob Comes Clean, as she learned what it takes to bring a home out of disaster status.

She helps to

1. find exactly where to start to get your mess tamed

2. How to obtain your quest for a manageable home

3. practical types that normal people can follow

4. What habits to keep and which ones to pitch

Why not start your self loving and your quest for a manageable house? I may take time but it can be obtained. Why not start your journey with me?
