Morning dear Friends,

I've recently been invited to join the beautiful ladies at SozoWomen as a site writer. Sweet blessing! The site is lovely, encouraging, insipiring. Glory to God!

I'll be posting there a couple of times a month. I'll continue to post every Monday and Thursday here, but if I've recently posted at SozoWomen, I'll post the link at Family Grace with My Five Sons.

Like today.

Please click on the link above for a message I've written on finding time to nurture a marriage, right in the middle of the wild and wonderful!

Have a blessing-rich, end-of-summer weekend. The boys and I are sending warm hugs.

With love,



  1. Congrat's, Shawnelle! This a marvelous opportunity for you!

  2. Thank you, BJ. You have always been such a dear encourager and strong example to me. Thanks for that - and more. I love you.

  3. Congratulations - obviously so well deserved. I've never heard of the site - off to check it out!

  4. Thanks, Kathy. I'd love it if you would. You are such a sweet encourager. Have I told you lately how much I appreciate you? I hope so:)
