This week is all about staying home. The sweet satisfaction of a good cup of coffee, or your favorite tea, in the “mom” chair. Be it outside, inside or whatever your spot is, cozy up and spend some time on these mom-inspired websites. No fancy dress necessary, no special expense needed—this is the time to relax and just be you...a mom.

3. Momsintouch.org: What about a mom mission started by a Poway mom? Fern Nichols decided to spread her love for the power of prayer with moms around the world. Started in 1984, this company now spans 140 countries and attracts thousands of moms, children and families. Their mission is to impact children and schools worldwide by gathering mothers to pray. With a posted group locator and events, any mom who feels she might need a prayer to get through the day is welcome to join. Amen.
Don't have a space you can cozy up to for Internet surfing or other mom activities? Well, it's time to create one. See the book Where Women Create for some ideas on how to create a “mom cave.” Mom caves are on the rise according to USA Today, see more here.
