Most Pinned Ideas

What is UP party people! I read back through the last few posts – am I crying like every day? Or does crying just give me the inspiration and energy to write?

Either way – fear not. No sappy stories here today! I am really a super joyful person.


I’ve got ideas for you! Did you know the mission of this blog and company called Lil Light O’ Mine?

To empower moms and change little lives through innovation in the home.

So … let’s do just that today!


Quick Pinterest Tip – For Website Owners

I learned this from The Nester I think. Did you know that you can see (kind of sneaky) – what people are pinning from your site or blog? It’s so simple. I can visit –  http://pinterest.com/source/courtneydefeo.com/ and see the scoop. All you have to do is erase the “courtneydefeo.com” part and insert your URL and check it out.

It is NOT a good idea if you will become obsessed and motivated by numbers.

It is a good idea if you just want to see what your readers find helpful. It helps me to know that TONS of moms every year were all about Light ‘Em Up – so I’ll spend time making that fun and new each year. It helps me to know that TONS of moms loved the Prayer Idea below. I’ll be coming back to “praying for your kids” ideas – because I need/want traffic? From the bottom of my heart – NO! I want to think on things that me/you need as mom to bring faith to life. I swear I don’t look at this often like a weird creeper.

  1. Moving into having a child at school as much as they are home I would love anything from moms ahead of me on how to help them in their own mission field and how to build their security in Jesus when you are not alongside them seeing everything. I have an overthinker so sharing answers and approaches to deep issues would be great too. But I find whatever God puts on your heart has relevance to our journey and encourages me, so keep it up please!!

  2. I need help being consistent with the kids chores for commission. Now more than ever, with how our country is doing things I want them to get “you work you get paid, you don’t work you don’t get paid” concept. But I also want them to have chores they do daily not for money. Just to be part of this household. I’m having trouble sorting all this out. I have two boys, 8 and 4. Thanks!
