Women of God can never be like women of the world. The world has enough women who are tough; we need women who are tender. There are enough women who are coarse; we need women who are kind. There are enough women who are rude; we need women who are refined. We have enough women of fame and fortune; we need more women of faith. We have enough greed; we need more goodness. We have enough vanity; we need more virtue. We have enough popularity; we need more purity. ~ Margaret D. Nadald

Our Father also gifted us with the nature to nurture, keen sensitivity to the Spirit, selflessness, discernment, and heroic faith. No wonder our Father placed us at the heart of the family and thus at the center of the plan of salvation. We are the Lord's secret weapon. ~ Sheri Dew

A Quick Post....

So, I know I've been absent, and for that I'm sorry! I promise to catch up, lots on my mind lately! My parents came to visit for my son's birthday last week and I'm SO BEHIND. It was fun though :-)

In any case, I had to write a quick post so that I could share my praises of www.delicious-monster.com. If you're not a Mac user, well, you'll want to be after you see this program! I've been in the process trying to get all our books and videos catalogued (can you say nightmare), and I'm literally about halfway done with both after only having this program since late this afternoon. YOU CAN SCAN BARCODES!! How cool is that?! My kids think it's the neatest thing to here a beep, have the computer say the name of the item being scanned, and then watch it appear on my virtual bookshelf completely with a picture they recognize that gets filled in a very fun way. You can also type in ISBN's or your book, attach a photo if it doesn't have one automatically, it picks up all of your iTunes stuff and catalogues it, you can add toys, music, games, clothes, plus it links into amazon so you can buy or sell there... and... you can "check out items" to people and a due date gets automatically added to your iCal so you don't forget about an item you lent to so and so. It's awesome!

I'm kicking myself for not getting this earlier. My good friend over at gentleartofchaos.blogspot.com/ told me about it last year during a fun "let's go check out the school supply store outing" (don't laugh, you know you get excited over the smell of pencils too!). I told my husband about it, we left it at that. So, single me who buys lots of gifts for herself because somehow that makes everything better, came home from the bookstore for the 2nd time this week and thought I'd look up delicious books.

You actually download the program and get to try it out (at which point you WILL be completely enamored), then you buy the license. So, go try it!!
