Happy Friday, friends!
Don’t you just love the fresh start of a new month? I do!
As these last weeks of summer slip away and we embrace September’s promise of fall, I’ve been doing some planning, dreaming, and prioritizing.
Today, I want to share with you a few things you can expect here at the blog this fall and winter.
Just a warning: I can be a fickle female, so these “plans” are subject to change without notice. 🙂
However, barring fickle female syndrome or other interruptions, here’s what I plan to feature at the Cottage over the next few months:
Minister’s Wife Monday
I love writing for my fellow pastor’s wives, and your warm response to this weekly Monday column has truly blessed me!
I plan to continue our Minister’s Wife Monday posts most weeks, at least 3 to 4 times per month.
You can check out my previous posts for pastor’s wives right here.
Mentoring Wednesdays for Moms
Motherhood and homeschooling have been my heart passions ever since I began blogging eight years ago, and I just can’t help but write about these topics!
I’ve been toying with the idea of featuring a homeschooling or mothering theme several Wednesdays each month. Again, your response to these posts has been encouraging!
The “mentoring” posts I’ve featured here at the blog always seem to strike a chord with women as well, so I’m stepping out with a Mentoring Wednesdays for Moms feature. I plan to share encouraging posts on motherhood, children, and homeschooling in these weekly or bi-weekly posts.

Natural Living Thursdays
Several years ago, my friend Jill and I hosted a Natural Living Thursdays blog link-up. My writing took a different direction and we discontinued the feature… but I’m still a natural living mama!
My heart is to resurrect this theme here at the blog with a regular (2 or 3 times a month) feature on Thursdays. As a mom, I get questions from time-to-time from other moms regarding health, herbs, and natural living, and that prompts me to continue writing about these themes here at the blog.
I plan to share posts on herbs, health, holistic living… and whole foods! It’s been ages since I shared a recipe here at the blog! Let’s remedy that!

Weekend Reads on Fridays
I love these chatty Friday posts!
Weekend Reads are my just-connect-with-me posts, where I might share about a book I’m reading, articles I’ve loved from My Favorite Reads board, or just a chatty family or blog related post.
I find that a weekly Weekend Reads post is difficult to commit to, so this is another bi-weekly feature here at the blog.
Other Places You’ll Find Me Writing
My little writer’s heart is blessed to share at the following sites-
Hip Homeschool Moms (quarterly)

Our Homeschool Forum recently hired me on as a weekly contributor! I’ll share a monthly round-up of my guest posts there in our Wednesday Mentoring for Moms posts, or you can hang out at their site with me once-a-week.
