Independence Day Featured Blogger: Nicole of Bless Their Hearts Mom

“Bless her/his heart” is a saying that Nicole Henke has heard all her life from her Mom and her Southern relatives. Inspired by this saying, her blog, Bless Their Hearts Mom, talks about a wide range of topics such as parenting, photography, reviews, crafting, food, pets, Louisiana activities, and single motherhood. A lot like the cooking practice- a little of this and a little of that -the generous mixture of topics makes the blog better than following a set recipe.

Independence Day Featured Blogger: Kathryn of Singing Through the Rain

When coming up with a name for her blog back in 2009, Kathryn thought about what she wanted it to portray. She knew immediately that she wants it to be encouraging, show her love for singing, and let people know what she loves doing. For her, Singing Through the Rain means that even though the rain and storms of life keep coming, she’s going to keep on singing and praising God through it all.
