Home Is Where the Mom Is: A Christian Mom's Guide &hellip by R. N. Burke
About 7 years ago, I began to write a book for at-home moms. The book I started still sits on my shelf, a dusty hard-copy work in progress. Shelly Burke has given me the reason to leave it there: she's managed to write the book I dreamed of writing: "Home Is Where the Mom Is", by Shelly Burke, is by far the best book to have on hand if you're an at-home mom (or want to be one).

Quick Decorating Ideas Under $20: The Budget Decor&hellip by Kathleen Wilson
This really is the budget decorator's "Bible"! For a minimal price, Kathleen Wilson gives you hundreds of great, simple, budget-minded decorating ideas for your home (or apartment/rental).
Kathleen's "resources" pages are the best I've found, all in one place -- at your fingertips! Her ideas for decorating include using what you already have -- she inspired me to change the look of my living room by simply covering the throw pillows with fabric I already had and liked (old shirts!) ... and I did it in less than a day!
We've lived on a budget for almost 7 years and decorating and making things "homey" just hasn't happened much in our house due to cost, lack of time and lack of… Read more
