The Ultimate Blog Party 2010!!

Ultimate Blog Party 2010

Hi there!  If you are visiting my blog for the first time them I'm so glad you're here!!!  I am new to blogging and this is my first Blog Party!  I'm so excited!!

So what is A Bokros Kind of Life you might be asking???

It's crazy fun, never dull, always changing, filled with laughter and full of love. On the flip side it can be chaotic, hectic, hard and stressful at times.  From the very moment we said "YES God! We will live for you!" our lives have never been the same.

We are homeschooling parents to four little girls -- 4 mos, 3.5, 5, and 8.5 -- that keep us VERY busy!  
After my mom's death from cancer in 2004 we welcomed four teenagers she adopted from Russia into our home as well.  

Our blog is a way for us to share the ordinary and extraordinary ways that God blesses our lives simply because we made the decision to take up our cross and follow Him. As Paul says in the Bible "you will know my faith by my works" and that is what we hope you see here.  We hope to live each moment we are given to the fullest and make the most of all of the experiences God takes us through in this life.....and to take you along with us!

Welcome to A Bokros Kind of Life!

Ok seriously I've been wanting to try Shaklee's products, but haven't gotten up the gumption (is that a word) to order it! I'd love to win and try it!! I'm also hoping to homeschool in the coming years, so I can't wait to read more! Stop by FTSN for a slice of peanut butter pie when you have a chance!

I'm a homeschooling mother also, although my kid are much older than yours. My oldest is starting college - which doesn't seem possible.

I LOVE Shaklee! My husband's grandmother sells Shaklee products, so we've been able to try a variety of their stuff. Haven't tried the Green Cleaning products, though. I'd be eager to give them a whirl! (wink wink)

Melissa Neece said...

Would like to have some green cleaning products in my home, have run out and no money to buy more!

UBP party! Thanks for your Great Blog!
