When a resource comes from my daughter, I automatically give it a 5 star review. She is godly, intelligent, wise, and resourceful; I value both her wisdom and her research. From purchasing a vacuum to investigating appropriate plants for the subdivision entrance, she can be trusted. So, with joy—and inclusive of her comments—I share my latest favorites (A Hack, A Book, A Poem) from Hey Mom!
Comment: Hey Mom! You are not going to believe this method. It will save all kinds of frustration.

Comment: Hey Mom! I sent you a link to the biography I’ve been listening to on the life of Queen Mary. It’s really good, and the author has all these very British anecdotes, which I think you would get a kick out of. For instance, she talks about how the queen always had an umbrella with her, and she would inconspicuously poke the king if he got too long-winded in his speeches!
Anyway, it just made me think of the wife of a leader, and plus, you like the British. Also, it spans a fascinating time in history—through both the World Wars.
I think my take-away, though, is that while she was a great queen (she was loved) and an excellent wife, she had her drawbacks as a mother. Tell me what you think.
By Anne Edwards, read by Corrie James
Comment: Hey Mom! One of the ladies in my Bible study read this prayer to us the other day; I thought you would like it. She was a hospice nurse for many years, so the last line, God be at mine end, was particularly meaningful to her. She said that people die very differently from one another. And, she told us that you can tell a difference with those who are looking forward to seeing their Savior.
God be in my head,
and in my understanding;
God be in my eyes,
and in my looking;
God be in my mouth,
and in my speaking;
God be in my heart,
and in my thinking;
God be in mine end,
and at my departing.
-The Book of Hours, 1514
