My Life as a Mom

Feel free to contact me:

With 6 happy kids, life can be really fun around here! This blog is dedicated to the joys and sometimes chaos of having a large family. Okay, so it's always chaos around here, but fortunately, it's almost always fun, too!

I spoke with a friend the other day who volunteered in New Orleans in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. It's amazing -- so many months have passed, and many people are still not settled, their lives are not yet back to normal. What a huge disaster that was - yet so minor in scale compared to the tsunami earlier last year.

Here are some interesting articles I found on the subject:

Hurricane Recovery - information on finding missing loved ones, shelter, ways to donate and volunteer.

JoJo and Abbas Zawawi - with an article about JoJo's mother, also a volunteer minister.

Volunteer Minister Blog - not just about the hurricanes, but about other work of volunteer ministers.

Hurricane Katrina Disaster Relief - Volunteer Ministers in the wake of Katrina
