Hey Friends, I Need a Little Help

Guess what? It’s time to make some serious improvements on One Thankful Mom.

This June I’ll celebrate my 10th anniversary of blogging – can you believe it? I would never have imagined that writing here would lead to speaking, books, and hopefully more amazing opportunities.

As I move toward this anniversary, I’m also moving toward a new design and some exciting new offerings, like free printables, ebooks, guest series, and maybe even a podcast.

I need your help.

I want to write what is most useful and encouraging to you. I could write for hours on all kinds of topics, but if it isn’t what you need, I’m wasting a ton of time and energy.

Will you please take a few minutes to tell me what you would like to see at One Thankful Mom? It would mean the world to me.

I’ve made it very easy by creating a simple survey, you just need to click here. It will take only one to two minutes, and it will be worth it (read on to see why).

If you can’t bring yourself to do the survey, but have something to say, please leave a comment.

I will be looking very closely at your responses as I plan for the future of One Thankful Mom.

Each person who completes the survey will be entered to win a $25 Amazon gift card. That’s how important your opinions are to me. [edited 2/22/16 The winner is Kate Sumpter!]

The survey will remain open until Friday, February 19th at midnight PST.

I can’t wait to hear from you.

with gratitude,

Lisa

Let me introduce myself. Russ and I are the parents of twelve children by birth and adoption, and sometimes more through foster care. I'm the creator of One Thankful Mom which has been as much of a gift to me as to my readers. In 2011 I became a TBRI® Pracitioner* and have lived and breathed connected parenting ever since. I'm deeply honored to be the co-author, together with the late Dr. Karyn Purvis, of The Connected Parent; it is her final written work. I love speaking at events for adoptive and foster parents. I'm also the co-founder of The Adoption Connection, a podcast and resource site for adoptive moms. I mentor and encourage adoptive moms so you can find courage and hope in your journeys of loving your children well.

    I HATE surveys, but I will let you know here: I love to hear about your faith in God, your religion, and your walk with Him–and of course, how that applies to your parenting. I also love to hear about your adoption journey, both the good and the bad. I plan to walk a similar road one day in the not-so-distant future, and I love any and all information that will prepare me.

    I did the survey. What I love most is your heart and the openness in which you share. I am not a fan of guests post but there wasn't a spot to write that. I read your blog for you.

    I did the survey, and just wanted to let you know that the posts on helping our hurting adopted kids have been the most helpful to me, and hearing your story of dealing with the loss of your daughter has been very encouraging as well, to know that when we have Jesus, we have enough.
