Hearts for Home Blog Hop #40




Welcome to this week's Hearts for Home Blog Hop.  The Hearts for Home Blog Hop is all about sharing encouraging and inspiring posts that show your heart is for your home and family.  Family friendly topics are welcome and include homeschooling, homemaking, cooking/recipes, parenting, marriage, faith, family, crafts, and the like.

The most clicked on post from last week was from First Comes Love: 




I had THREE favorites from last week.  Just couldn't narrow it down to one or two! 

I personally have a passion for living books and am also a rabid Harry Potter fan.  I loved the perspective that Don't Forget the Avocados shared: "Recently, a friend asked me why I think it is O.K. for kids to read Harry Potter.  This is the kind of conversation that can go in many directions, but is ultimately less about the specifics of J.K. Rowling's work and is more about the proper role of literature in a Christian child's upbringing.  For me, it is also a discussion that highlights the philosophy of classical education."





This Woman Writes shares her feelings on being a Christian and celebrating Halloween: "Halloween is one of the many subjects about which good people disagree, and as a person who comes out swinging with very little provocation, I have to admit that it's hard to keep my mouth shut when someone tells another person how wicked she is for dressing her child up as a pink bunny and escorting her from door to door with a hollow orange plastic orange plastic pumpkin."




And last but not least, some yummy goodness from This Woman Writes - a recipe for Peanut Butter Muffins.  On my to-do list for this coming week!
