Friend Of The Week – Tina
This week I’m delighted to introduce you to Tina, the blogger behind
I first met Tina through our love of books and connected with her because of our shared faith – but she has a magnificent story to share that will delight the parents among us as well!
Tina and her family of seven – which includes her husband, her three growing girls, and her two delightful boys – are Americans who live abroad. Her daughters were born in Indonesia, and they now reside in Malaysia, where her sons were born.
When her youngest daughter Maggie – shown in the picture – was two-and-a-half, her aunt gave her a book that made frequent use of the adjective magnificent.
Magpie, of course, thought the book was about her, and not only declared herself Mag-nificent – but soon began proclaiming the rest of her family nificent as well!
So, when it became time to create Tina’s blog – Mommynificent was born!
On Mommynificent, you’ll find many delightful tales and tidbits about Tina’s and her family’s life in Southeast Asia, as well as books, recipes, and the weekly Booknificent link-up!
Comments mean the world to bloggers. Won’t you drop by and congratulate Tina for being our Friend of the Week at Create With Joy?

Thank-you for hosting and encouraging community! Because I have been a childbirth nurse and know the joy of family my blog has the title, Labor of Love. I write about issues that concern women’s health and the home. Faith and guidance from the Bible supports the family, and so I share my faith. I like to include tips on herbs and gardening. And sometimes I will post a recipe that my family enjoys.
Carol, what a lovely story behind your blog – I love how the title ties in with your life’s work!
Thanks for joining in the conversation this week! 🙂
Such a nice story about Tina, cute about her little one, funny how names of blogs come about.
Thanks Ramona, for the party and the chance to share my social link.
Wishing you a great weekend!
Thanks Karren – hope you have a great weekend – would love to hear the story of the name behind your blog if you have a moment! 🙂
Thanks so much for featuring me as friend of the week!
My pleasure Tina! 🙂
Thanks so much for introducing us to Tina! And, what a great idea to have a social media boost link up in addition to the Friendship Friday link up! (If you’ve done it before, I missed it as I’m fairly new here! 🙂 ) Anyway, to answer your questions, my blog is The Beauty in His Grip and I’ve been out here in the blogsphere for a while. Six years ago I began my blog out of my love for Christ and what He has done in my life. The title of my blog comes from my discovery that no matter how far we fall, we are never so far that we are beyond the reach of God. He has a hold of me, and I have found incredible “beauty in His grip.” (I explain that a bit more in the little tidbit that is at the bottom of each of my posts.) Anyway, thanks again for this community and the opportunity to participate in both of these link parties today!
Yes, there is always a Social Media Boost in addition to the Blog Hop – I usually list it first to help everyone find it and we rotate social media channels – so I hope you’ll join in the weekly fun!
Thank you for sharing the story of the beautiful title of your blog. I love it!:-)
I love Tina’s Booknificent Thursdays! It’s always a pleasure visiting her blog.
Yes, I love Tina’s blog and party as well!
Happy Friday Ramona!
Thanks for hosting 🙂
Thanks so much for hosting. I messed up on the twitter linkup! @susanbmead is my twitter handle. Sorry!
Susanbmead.com is my name and I host the DanceWithJesus Linkup each Friday there on the blog. It’s the name of the book I wrote – Dance With Jesus: From Grief to Grace.
I lost my college-aged 20 year old son, yet in a dream I saw him dancing with Jesus. Thus the name. I know God loves us each uniquely and eternally and that’s what I write about. Susan
No problem about the Twitter link Susan – it happens! 🙂
I am SO sorry to hear about your loss but what a powerful dream!
Your book sounds like an amazing read!
Happy & peaceful weekend to you, Joy!
And thank you for another Friendship Friday!
Thank you Nina – I wish you the same as well!
Thanks so much for hosting!!
Always a pleasure Thistle – thanks for joining us!
Thanks for hosting the party. We’d love it if you and your friends joined us for this week’s Funtastic Friday. The party is open now. Hope you all can make it.
Thanks for the invite Sherry – have an amazing weekend!
Thank you so much for hosting the link up! The name of my blog is Faithfully Committed. When my husband and I decided to start a blog, we were looking for something that communicated our commitment to Christ and to one another. We ended up using the phrase from the Resolution for Women. In the movie Courageous, the men pledge and sign the Resolution for Men. My husband and I used this and the woman’s version as part of our vows at our wedding. One of the lines states, “I will live as a woman answerable to God and faithfully committed to His Word.” I want to be a woman faithfully committed to God, my husband, and our family. As a result, we decided that Faithfully Committed would be the perfect name! 🙂 Thanks again!
What a beautiful background story Bree – Faithfully Committed is the PERFECT name for your blog!
I am learning new things in blog world and appreciate you hosting so I could learn how to add my post here. Amazing! I am not the most technology savvy gal! My blog Phamilyblog or Annesphamily is primarily about my phamily. I was involved with Princess House Products for nearly 16 years so I choose to spell family with the ph instead. I will visit Tina too. I love blogging and have met so many wonderful people including a few face to face. I too reply on my faith and love knowing others who share. I started blogging in November 2009 on a push from a dear friend I have known since we were pen pals at age 13 long, long ago! Barb at dogmomdiva encouraged me to write about our middle daughters dog who was diagnosed with liver cancer. Gosh I did not know a thing back then. Today I write some posts about my childhood home and heritage I call my BoJon Heritage and am proud that both of my parents were of Slovenian heritage. It is kind of a journal for my kids, grandkids and great grand little ones too. Thank you for including me here. Blessings, Anne
Dear Anne, it’s always a pleasure to see you at our party!
Thank you for sharing the history of your blog – I always wondered about the special spelling of “phamily”!
