In Case You Missed It:
Saturday Roundup


Welcome to the weekend, GEM readers! We sure hope you’ve all had a great week and that you have some R & R planned!

We had some great stories this week – here’s a look . . .


Dave wrote an incredible piece about how he slows down every now and then to enjoy life’s little moments and why it’s so important. Take a look at Our Story Begins: Taking Stock Of The Moments if you need a reminder on this important message!


Success. What does that mean to you? This week, Rene shared her thoughts on how success can look different to each one of us. Have a look at Monday Morning Motivation: The 3 Pillars Of Success for a look into what success looks like for her.


You’ve surely had a day where your perfect plan did not roll out anywhere near as it was supposed to, right? Wendy described how her perfect plan of playing hooky with her son went off the tracks in Single Mom Slice of Life: The Perfect Plan Of Playing Hooky. Check it out, it’s a great one!

Can you even imagine being the parent of 9 children? NINE CHILDREN. I’ll let you think about that for a moment . . .

Tricia put together a great piece for us this week and shared What Matters Most: 9 Things I Learned As A Mom Of 9 Kids. Such a great look into her world; you won’t want to miss this one!


You all know how we like to keep it real around here, right? Julixa is our resident mom of twins and this week, she shared Tales From A Twin Mom: The Dark Side Of Being A Twin Mom to give us a look at some of her day to day thoughts from the dark side. I think we all have a dark side when it comes to almost everything and I can definitely relate! I love this piece and how Julixa has given us a glimpse into her world – take a look!

We hope you enjoyed the roundup and have one request to ask of you. Go out there and enjoy your weekend!
