Week 10 — Featured Commenter:

This week’s loyal commenter is Cascia from Healthy Moms.

Cascia is a stay at home mother of three (soon to be four) and the mastermind behind the Healthy Moms website.  Cascia strives to empower women through her fresh feature columns, newsletters for expectant and new mothers and her knowledge of all things womanly from tips on parenting and fitness to maintaining your health in pregnancy and much, much more. 

Healthy Moms is a great resource for all women who are looking to keep up to date with the latest news in health and fitness.  Cascia also works hard to spread the love within the blogoshpere by frequently featuring different bloggers on her site. 

Cascia has several feature columns that encourage participation from her readers. 

Do you need encouragement, support or advice on potty training?  If so, visit here.  Are you looking for tips on how to stay healthy and keep your family healthy?  Then this column is for you.  Are you looking to participate in a prayer chain that spans the blogosphere?  You might want to check this out. 

As you can see, Healthy Moms has something for everyone and is a great blog to add to your reader.

Cascia describes her self as a small town girl from Wisconsin (who currently lives in sunny California but longs for her beloved midwest) who enjoys being a wife/mother/blogger.

Thank you, Cascia, for giving us a resource that speaks directly to women and mothers. Thank you, also, for your generosity in promoting other women bloggers.  You are an inspiration and an example of the great things that can be accomplished through the art of blogging. 

And, of course, thank you for being such a loyal commenter here at 5 Minutes for Mom! Please display this Loyal Commenter badge with pride.

What a wonderful site! I am the mother of 3 children and consider your site to be a wonderful resource for all my questions and concerns.

I am the owner of Kalax Creations, craft business which makes hand painted, personalized crafts for kids of all ages. Our most popular products help with overall organization.
Our hand painted Lap Desks make wonderful desks for toddlers & preschoolers as well as anyone seated or bedridden. Best of all, they fit over most car seats giving your kids hours to color, play or read on the desk top. The attached side pockets store all essentials.
Our hand painted Totes also help to corral the mess! We have several hand painted Tote Bags in our home. One for “Library Books,” another for “Dance” and yet another for “Sports.” They are colorfully decorated with our whimisical Kalax Creations easy to grab and go! No more searching for lost shoes or shin guards!
Best of all, personalization is always free to make the unique, easy to locate gift.

It is a pleasure to be affiliated with 5minutesformom since it is the rare day that I get 5 minutes alone!

Thank you so much for this honor! I am in tears because of this. (it must be the pregnancy hormones!)

Ever since I found your website back in 2007 you and your sister have inspired me with my blog. Healthy Moms would not be the kind of site it is today without you guys and Five Minutes For Mom.

Thank you for having this wonderful blog and for promoting bloggers like me!
