The Babywise Friendly Blog Network is a group of bloggers with one main thing in common: we have all used the  "-wise" methods (Babywise, Toddlerwise, Preschoolwise, Childwise, etc...) with our children. While we share this great thing in common, we each have varying interests, passions, backgrounds, political and religious views, family sizes, and geographical locations and each of our blogs have different focuses. We partner up and guest post with each other a couple times a month and help provide a positive presence for Babywise and a gold-mine of resources for all parents on the internet.

I love each and every one of them and I think you will too. They have become real life friends for me and I am excited to introduce you to them.

Valerie is basically the Babywise Queen, although she is one of the most humble people I have ever known. She loves helping people and that is so evident if you spend any time on her blog. Her blog is the largest available Babywise resource on the internet. I could not have survived the baby days with any of my kids without her blog. I still pinch myself that I get to call her a friend now.

Val is married to Nate, has four kids, loves to sing, is very involved in her church and kids school, and is probably the most organized person you'll ever meet.

I first discovered Emily's blog when I was pregnant with Archer and couldn't sleep. I binge-read for hours at night and felt like I knew her and wanted to be her new best friend. Little did I know that just a few months later, I would join the BFBN and actually become friends with her. My favorite thing about Emily is our shared love for DISNEY!!! We both love to plan magical trips to the happiest place on earth.

Emily also has four kids, is married to Zach, is passionate about finding good deals and creating lasting memories for her kids.

Kim joined the BFBN at the same time as I did and I have loved getting to know her! This girl is passionate about Science and Stem and not in a nerdy way, but in a way that makes it so fun. She's pretty much Laura Kate's spirit animal. She does fantastically fun yet amazingly simply experiments with her kids weekly and you're going to want to play along! 

Kim is one of our twin mamas to twin girls with big brother Ben ruling the roost. She is married to Pat, a teacher and also runs a Bookkeeping business from home. Basically she's a Girl Boss.

Katrina is smart and sassy and a gifted writer. Like Kim, she also has a background in Science and Engineering. She has a unique perspective on the world that makes you want to pull up a chair and listen to. She's passionate and tender and whether walking through hard times or good times, she continues forward in a way that always brings others along on the journey with her. 

Katrina has two daughters, Caroline, currently a threenager, and April Rey who left us way too soon. Katrina and her husband just announced the exciting news of a new pregnancy!

Tash was my real life friend long before she was my blog friend. We've known each other for close to a decade now and I can honestly say she is one of the bravest people I know. She has faced devastating tragedy through foster care and infertility and has seen the Lord's overwhelming kindness and care through those same things. Her story is too good and too terrible to be true so you might as well just go read it for yourself on her blog. 

Tash is married to Gary and they have four kids with TWINS on the way. They are some of the most generous people I have ever known and my life is so blessed because they are my friends.

Caitlin is another twin mom boss and she is also passionate about healthy living and eating. But don't worry, she appreciates a cupcake and glass of wine. She's easy to love because she is real and honest and so quick to laugh. Also she's just gorgeous isn't she? She lives by the ocean and posts the most beautiful pictures of her cuties playing by the water. You're going to want to her friend. 

Caitlin is married to Ben and has three kids. I love how she posts real life pictures not always the perfectly posed and filtered. She finds beauty in real life.

Christine is our New Zealand friend. She brings so much loveliness to our group and I so badly want to meet her in person one day and have a cup of tea with her. She loves the Lord so dearly, is so wise and funny, and creates the most beautiful spaces, including her blog. Every time I sit down and read her blog I feel like I am spending time with a friend. I love how the technology bridges the gap of the oceans! 

Christine is married to Shane and they have two kids with one more on the way! She is a stay at home mom, but a trained nurse and a brilliant designer.
