I thought I had posted on this thread several months ago when I first read it but just realized I hadn't. I just wanted to say how thankful I am that you posted this thread and the links to Laine's letters. Over the last several months; if I was having a hard time getting motivated I just read some of Laine's lettersor thik about what you posted. Every once in awhile I will receive one in my email inbox and am all excited to read it. Thanks again

Thank you, mamas. I'm so glad others have found encouragement, too. I need to go read some of Laine's Letters again, myself!

Thank you for this post. I tend to be a perfectionist when it comes to keeping my home clean. I admit it is a struggle for me to find the proper balance between play time with my step son and cleaning time. Now that I am expecting I am thinking even more about this. I'm not sure how to find the "right" balance... but thank you for the reminder to try.

I wonder, does Laine still send out these emails? When I try to click on the subscribe link on her site, nothing pops up and I noticed that the archives go back to 2007. These letters are SO inspiring, just what I needed to keep me moving on my way today, er well tomorrow after my little babe falls asleep and I get some decent sleep!

The email list is still active. When I clicked on the link to join, my outlook automatically opened and it prompted me to send an email to a specific address to auto-enroll in the list <laines_letters-subscribe@welovegod.org subject line: Just click SEND>.

Once I enrolled, I got my first "letter" yesterday. Just wanted to let you know in case you were still wondering.

These letters have been a God-send to me, literally. I can't get enough of them. I've been reading them over the past 1-2 weeks and I am in awe of this woman! I can't even begin to aspire to be anything close to the wife and mother she is, but she has definitely inspired me to try!
