A Break from Blogging

Country Church

Dear Readers,

I wanted to just share a quick note to let you know that I am not going to be writing here for some time. I hope to be back in late December or early next year.  There are some health difficulties in my family and I am needed.  I need to stop blogging for a time to avoid any pressure or extra work that it may cause. Writing is hard work!  (gentle smiles)  So a rest is in order while my family needs extra care for the next month or two.

I also wanted to tell you that I just published a new book, "Mother's Hour."  

It is just a simple, humble book:

"Mother's Hour

Encouragement from Home for The Christian Housewife

  • Paperback: 128 pages
  • ISBN-10: 0692579974
  • ISBN-13: 978-0692579978
  • 44 Short Chapters - Half from recent posts on this blog, and the other half from my private monthly newsletter that goes out by regular mail, "Letters from the Estate."

Available at Amazon.


Description from the Back Cover:

"There used to be radio programs called, “Gospel Hour” and “The Hymn – Singing Hour” which were a great blessing to many of the Lord’s people. They would pause from their work and sit by the radio to hear the spiritual nourishment. Sometimes they only had a few minutes to spare. Perhaps they only heard the end of the program, or a few minutes in the middle, but this was enough to get them back to a joyful state of mind doing the great work of the Lord in their daily lives. . . .

Mother’s Hour is designed to be a time of refreshment, a time to stop and read a sort of modern day radio program. It contains domestic writings for mothers, wives, and grandmothers. The author wrote these from her home in rural Vermont. Here she shares some of her life as a Christian Housewife. These are like devotionals; some are brief while others are longer. These writings were mostly gleaned from a private monthly newsletter sent to subscribers by “old fashioned” mail. The rest were taken from her blog, “The Legacy of Home.” You'll read "To Earn and Not to Spend" - "The Diary of a Housewife" - "Putting Papa First" - "Setting up Housekeeping" and much more. . . .

Whether you have a few minutes or an entire hour to sit and read, it is the hope of the publisher that you will find encouragement for your work in a Christian Home."


 Thank you so much for all your kind notes of encouragement and support!

 I hope you have a lovely Thanksgiving with your families. May your Christmas be peaceful and joyful. And may your New Year be one of health and happiness.

I will be back as soon as I can.

Mrs. White

"Father God, I pray that you will send your healing touch throughout this family and heal everyone completely by the power of the blood and the name of Jesus Christ."

Bless your dear heart! I do trust that the health issues will be healed in Jesus' name, and you will be able to minister to those who need it. May God give you the needed strength for each day and every challenging moment. "The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms." Deuteronomy 33:27 You will be missed here, and we will look forward to "visiting" when you get back. God bless you with a wonderful Christmas season in spite of the trials!

Dear Mrs White,

Thank you for all the blogging you do, it is a great encouragement, more than you can know. I hope and pray that at this time you will receive all the strength you need especially as family health issues can be very hard. Hope that all goes well and that you have a wonderful holiday season in amongst all the work. Praying for blessings upon you all, and look forward to when you have the energy to blog again.

I have love all your books I have read so far. I found your books on amazon in December when I went to purchase HomeMaking by J.R. Miller. I bought 4 of them. I am currently doing a devotion of yours (90 Days in Psalm and Proverbs, Quotes, Prayer and Journaling) I love it and it has transformed my morning time. I also finish Living on His Income....excellent.

I have Mother's Hour and I loved it as well. Thank you for your hard work compiling all these wonderful books and I plan to pass to my daughter.
