One of the things that makes my life rich is the amazing women that I am blessed and lucky enough to call my friends. They're all different and that's what makes them wonderful! I love knowing people who are interesting and interested in so many different areas because I learn so much from them. Two of my friends have started great websites of their own to share their passions and because I think they're fabulous, I want to share them with you!
The first one is Libby's Guide: Great Books for Children and Young Adults.
Libby's Guide back then! Libby tags all of the books that she reviews so it's easy to choose a specific type of book (say, Historical Fiction for Children) and find a list of books in that category.
One thing I love about Libby's reviews is that she notes if the book has any content that may be inappropriate for young readers. Also, Libby has two sons and she makes special note of books that may appeal to boys. Tween and teen boys are a traditionally difficult audience for writers and booksellers to reach, so this is a great resource! If you have young readers in your house, please check out Libby's Guide!
My friend Lindsay has a passion for living a healthy lifestyle and she recently started a great website called A Fit Family.
Lindsay is an active, busy mom to four cute kids and one of her goals is to instill in her children how to have a healthy lifestyle from the time that they're young. I definitely think she's doing a great service to them--if they start healthy habits now, think of what an advantage they'll have when they're adults and don't have Mom around to plan their meals and activities!
Lindsay is a wonderful cook and baker and she makes yummy, healthy foods for her family every day. She is adept at tweaking recipes to add the maximum amount of good stuff in them, while still keeping them tasty and kid-friendly! There's a dedicated recipe page with nearly 100 of her recipes listed and she adds more all the time. Last week for dinner I made her Grilled Coconut-Lime Tilapia Tacos with Kiwi Salsa. I never would have thought to use kiwi fruit as an accompaniment for fish, but it was really tasty!
Lindsay posts nearly every single day so you can become a follower of her blog so you don't miss any of those yummy recipes. You can also check her out on Facebook here.
