Welcome back to the new and improved Literacy Musing Mondays. Last week, I shared about myself, and this week we’re proud to introduce our other new host, Leah.
Hi, I’m Leah, a homeschool mom of four children who loves reading and blogging and…did I mention reading? I’ve been homeschooling for almost fourteen years now, and I’m very close to graduating my oldest daughter! I’ve been blogging since early in my homeschool days, but my early blog posts were just journals of what was happening in our homeschool- so everybody in the world could see that we built the Great Pyramid with Legos that day. Woohoo!
With our new hosts on board, next we will work on a new button for the linkup as well as “Featured On” button.
*Before we get started, I want to mention a few things:
- Check out this great Thanksgiving Scripture Writing Plan I found on Pinterest. I’ve always loved keeping a journal and writing out Scripture. It especially helps with memorization. Excited to do this for the entire month of November. 🙂
- If you have young children, I’d love for you to check out my recently published children’s eBook, Mysterious Moon! Best read in a calm, quiet voice as you tuck your children into bed. 🙂 It’s available on Amazon for only $1.99.
- I created a separate Instagram for my blog, so feel free to follow me on my new blog Instagram account! (https://www.instagram.com/brandiraaeblog/) From now until Monday, I’ll be keeping track of new follows. I will draw a name on Monday at 7 pm Arizona time. Winner will receive a little happy in the mail! Thanks so much and good luck.
- Finally, Be sure to check out Mary’s series 31 Christian Women Bloggers Who Inspire a Closer Walk with Jesus.
She says, “Have I selected a blogger you know and love? Be sure check out my landing page to see whom I will be writing about this month. This series is part of the annual October Write 31 Days Challenge. 31 Days is an online writing challenge started by home blogger, Myquillyn Smith (The Nester), and now hosted by Crystal Stine, where bloggers pick one topic and write a post on that topic every day in October.
They offer their words as gifts to others to encourage and uplift, to glorify our Lord and Savior. I hope my series will bless you whether you blog or not.
I welcome all Write 31 Day participants. We are community and would love to support your endeavors this month so link up your wonderful posts this week. Are you participating in the Write 31 Day Challenge? What do you hope to accomplish and learn with your participation?

Now on to our linkup.

Well check out this post and find out!
My Favorite Post of the Week:
I’m not sure if my kids would be into this or not, but I loved reading about this super neat idea! In her post, Sarah explains in great detail how Wikipedia works and how older kids can write content on the site.
