Welcome back to the After Thanksgiving edition of the #LMMLinkup. Because of the Thanksgiving Holidays, your hosts decided to extend last week’s linkup so we can have more time with our families.

As we approach the Christmas holidays, we finalized our #LMMLinkup holiday schedule. The regular linkup will return Monday, Dec. 4 and Monday, Dec. 11.  The Monday, December 11 linkup will be extended until January 8th when we hope to return with a great series on New Year Goals. We are finalizing guest posts and the theme now.

If you would like to be a part of our New Year’s series email your ideas to Mary at marykatbpcsc45 @ gmail (dot)com.

We hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday and are wishing you a blessed Advent season as well. Please link up your posts for this week below.

Last Week’s Top Clicked Post!

What I Learned About Myself by Doing an ‘Argument Autopsy’

By Beth Steffaniak at Messy Marriage



In this post, Beth introduces her guest post at Sheila Wray Gregoire’s blog  To Love, Honor, and Vacuum.   She also includes a great resource to help you determine why you argue and how you argue and what your arguing style with your husband says about your marriage. The blog post also includes a prayer journal with guide questions and scriptures to help edify your marriage. Beth provide so many useful tools on her blog. Messy Marriage continues to be one of my favorite blogs. Her blog posts have been the most clicked several times because she delivers such useful information to help Christian women improve their marriages.

My Favorite Post(s) of the Week


In the spirit of learning and Thanksgiving, I have three favorite posts for which I am thankful this week. First:


From the blog, Our Unschooling Journey Through LifeI enjoyed discovering some 10 GreatThanksgiving crafts.  Two of my favorite craft ideas were an Indian Corn Wreath and a Thanksgiving Tree.

We also had a post featuring some great reads from Melissa at her blog, Jesus Loves Me Devotions.   Melissa features five of her favorite Thanksgiving books. I loved the book, A Very Thankful Prayer. Be sure to check her great post out today.

Five Thanksgiving Books to Supplement Your Child’s Devotions



We also need to focus on spiritual truths for Thanksgiving which is why I enjoyed Diana’s post:


6 Biblical characteristics of a Thankful Heart

These characteristics will provoke and challenge you as you try to live up to each of them. She also includes a great resource for Thanksgiving: Blessed Thanksgiving Verses.

Linkup Rules:

  1. Include a link back or the blog hop button linked to this hop on your posts.
  2. Link up the urls to your posts not to your blog.
  3. Please remember this is a family-friendly linkup. Although we believe in the right for adults to read whatever they want to read, we prefer to read wholesome posts that feature literature that edify and uplift families. We reserve the right to delete any posts that are not family friendly. We love all kinds of literature and genres including family-friendly inspirational romances, fantasy, or science fiction. We do not welcome any posts that feature excessive violence, sexual content, or any cursing. This rule also applies to book review posts that feature books that are not family-friendly. These posts will be deleted without notice to the blogger or explanation. While we believe in the right for all adults to read whatever they want, we feel our linkup is for family-friendly posts only. Thank you for understanding.
  4. We also want to be loving community by supporting one another. Please make a point to do this this week! Visit the two posts before yours and at least one other blogger’s post of your choice! I want to see lots of clicks on everyone’s posts. Remember it is also nice to follow them on their social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook.
  5. Follow your hosts and co-hosts on their social media.
  6. Tweet about the link up too.
