First time joining #FridayIntroductions with @thetinytwig and @jessaconnolly Hi, I'm Lisa-Jo. I only look this put together when my kids are in school. The rest of the time I'm a big fan of my husband's hand-me-down sweats. I'm a South African girl married to a Michigan boy raising our three VERY loud kids just outside of Washington, DC. I dream in shades of the Southern Cross and love me an afternoon spent with a cup of hot tea and good friends. There is never enough time for good conversations and I see the world through movies and books. I blog at about faith through the lens of motherhood. I believe my three kids teach me Gospel truths better than anything else and I love my job as the community manager at @incourage On April Fool's day my first book #surprisedbymotherhood came out and I'm still daily shocked by the million lessons I learn through this most unexpected role of mom - the boring, the glorious and the humbling. - OK your turn....I'd love to know where you're from and what the last great film is you saw. GO!

jesswolstenholm : Welcome @lisajobaker!! I'm in Nashville and the last great film I saw (other than Frozen) was probably The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. :)
christianmum22 : I'm Lynne from near Edinburgh in Scotland. Mum to 2 lively kids who keep me busy. Love Christ and crafting when I've some spare time. I think the Lego movie 🎥 was probably the last one. Love your posts 😊
teresaingram13 : @lisajobaker Teresa from Saint Louis! I watched Lone Survivor and my heart broke! Amazed at the bravery of men and women who fight for justice.
everlypleasant : I'm Everly (real name Caroline) and I'm from College Station, Texas. I loved The Hundred Foot Journey! Also just saw the old Disney, The Moonspinners, for the first time and that was pretty great!
catwilson78 : Hey @lisajobaker I'm Cat from Auckland, NZ. I'm a wife, teacher, lover of Jesus & Mum to two gorgeous little boys. Your words are the breath of life that keep me sane & so encouraged in the midst of this season. Last saw Captain America 2 on DVD. Love a good superhero flick!
littlemsjohnson : Howzit! This is Kirsty, from Jo'burg (currently living in London). I haven't watched a film in... (a 2year old boy and a new baby girl almost about to hatch would be the reason why) :-)
deenaroyalty : Hi! I'm Deena from Ohio, I blog at\joelroyalty about life with my six "Littles" and the last great movie I've seen waaay too many times to admit was "Mom's Night Out!"
rmheyward : Great pic!

Our girls will likely not make it to womanhood unscathed. How we help them through their losses matters. I'm sharing how to help your teenage daughter grieve over on @annvoskamp's blog.

shifferdiane : Oh my gosh... This picture might be my favorite one of you two ever.

lyndimanderson : Beauties! I am so enjoying reading your book right now. It brings sunshine to my soul and most importantly hard moments in mothering. You are a blessing and an inspiration! Thanks Lisa-Jo!

There's something about the post-weekend chaos that is profoundly comforting. It says, "we live here. And we love here. Loud and messy. All this life." This is home. Love the home you're with :) #surprisedbymotherhood

maggiewhitley : So wise :)
cyleaugusta : Such a good word...
ginghamandgrosgrain : So true!

cszollosy : Thank you for this perspective on the mess that comes with Mondays!
mrszupke : Yes yes yes but done of us have our work cut out for us more than of my husband's strongest love languages (if not the best way he feels loved/can relax) is a clean house! 😏
ascosta25 : @lisajobaker Thanks for posting this! Had my 6th baby two weeks ago and am a clean freak so have been stressing over all the mess my 6 kids under 9 seem to create that I just can't keep up with these days. Thanks for the reminder to just enjoy!

"The memory of the righteous is a blessing." Proverbs 10:7. That includes all the messy, chaotic, difficult memories too, moms. Come and share a Monday nugget of me-time and watch today's #surprisedbymotherhood bookclub videos:
