"Home is Where the Mom Is" special

I've self-published several books; my favorite one is Home is Where the Mom Is: A Christian Mom's Guide to Caring for Herself, Her Family, and Her Home.

I wrote Home is Where the Mom Is during a very special time in my life; my children were toddlers and I was a member of a MOPS (Mothers of Pre-Schoolers) group. Many of my friends from MOPS (who are still friends today!) had suggestions for the book and encouraged me as I wrote it.

Home is Where the Mom Is is a comprehensive book, filled with encouragement, information, and "real life" advice for moms who have kids of any age. I pray that it reaches moms who read it, when they need what's provided in the book.

Since I've taken over the Nebraska Family Times, I have not had as much time as I would like to promote Home is Where the Mom Is. However, I still believe in the messages in Home is Where the Mom Is and I want to get the book out to moms who need the message of encouragement as they live their lives doing the most important job in the world--being a mom!

I've decided to offer a special on Home is Where the Mom Is. Regularly priced at $15 each, from now until May 15th, buy three copies for ONLY $25! That means you'll get three copies of Home is Where the Mom Is for just $25 + $5 shipping and handling!

Home is Where the Mom Is is the perfect gift for:

  • Any new mom, or mom with kids of any age

  • Birthday

  • Mother's Day

  • Baby shower

  • Christmas

  • just because!

If you don't have a specific mom in mind, consider donating a copy of Home is Where the Mom Is to your church library, local MOPS group, or city library.

With the special offer, you can do your shopping for all the moms on your list, for the whole year!

If you want to take advantage of this offer, send your payment via PayPal to Checks and money orders also accepted; mail to Shelly Burke, 42887 G. G. Road, Genoa, NE 68640.

Books can also be gift-wrapped and mailed directly to the recipient; e-mail me at or call (402) 993-2467 or (402) 750-3496 to give me the details.

Time Flies!

And already another issue of the Nebraska Family Times has been put together, printed, delivered, and mailed out. March marks the 6th issue of the paper I put together (with a lot of help from former owner Vyckie, my assistant Lori, Promotions and Publicity person Marcie, and the support and advice of my family).

I'm learning more every month, and I'm as excited about the paper as I was the day I decided to take Vyckie up on the wonderful opportunity she offered me--if not more so! It seems that every day I get another idea about an article, or column, or something I want to share with my readers. I hope you are enjoying reading the paper as much as I enjoy writing it! I appreciate your comments, suggestions, and questions. Please keep them coming!
