2 Post Kind of Day/Crock Pot Girls Update

Standard

WOW WOW WOW!!  I was listening to K-love online today.  As I was working the show host mentioned Crock Pot Girls.  I almost fell out of my chair.

Here is the timeline:

August 19th – they started a simple group on Facebook called Crock Pot Girls

August 24th – I liked them after a friend of mine did and then over 45 friends of mine have liked the page

August 26th – I posted about the circle of influence of the Crock Pot Girls and they had 177,000 followers

September 1st – they are now at 974,872 fans.

The BEST part about this site… is that they are busting their tails to read posts, edit posts and drop the nay sayers.  I watched the posts and in a few minutes 3 negative nellie posts were removed.  That is GREAT.  The message is simple join in on the fun or unlike them and move on.  This doesn’t have to be a lifetime commitment.  If you see a recipe you like copy into in MS Word doc so you can have a list of your favorites to try.  These 3 women (and hopefully all their family and friends who are now standing behind and beside them) are doing the best they can.  I am impressed.

Can’t wait to keep seeing where these Crocking Mamas end up.  I think they will be on the Today Show or the like very soon.

It is amazing to see what a nerve they have hit.  We all want to feed our families and feed them well.

And if you cross paths with the Crock Pot Girls, wish them well.  I bet on August 18th this idea was just a lark!  Now the lark has turned into a twisting turning roller coaster of outpour!

Checked again… now they are at 975,839… in 10 minutes time!!!

About Kristin

I started this blog thing years ago in August 2011. I have made attempts to blog over the past three years of seminary, but it was like writing when drowning. But I have completed the bulk of my course work, so I know there is a God. I am currently in my capstone creation phase this fall. This allows me time to unravel a little and renew my passion for writing my ramblings. If you like what you read, share what it stirs in you or even share it with others. I write for you from me. A little about me... I have celebrated 16 years of wedded bliss and reality with my best friend for over 17 years. We have 3 wonderful kids that are all unique, amazing and different in their own way. Our first born is nearly a teenager. He loves talking, Scouts, reading, camping and science experiments. Our daughter is a decade old. She is our creative soul and a planner! She loves to spend time dancing, singing and nurturing/teaching her babydolls and us. She is very sweet to her brothers. Last but not least is our daring 6 year old red head boy. He broke the "Wooldridge Mold". He is the fastest runner, our busiest explorer, our deep philosopher and biggest joker, oh and he gives the best hugs. You know the long lingering kind that truly fuel your soul to sing. I have been a stay at home mom for nearly 13 years and I have found a groove that works for our family. (That grove doesn't mean I have it figured out. It just means I am good with asking for help and having my family help us survive.) Twelve years ago, I joined a local MOPS group and I have been the Coordinator for 1o years. This group has given me a chance to lead without working full time, support other women in my community and help refine my walk with God. I also attend Central Baptist Theological Seminary. I am pursuing a Masters of Divinity and loving every minute of it. I am currently working on my capstone project, which a ministry guide for the MOPS group I have lead for a decade. It will serve as a touchpoint for those in leadership and also as a sweet offering as my goodbye to meaningful work that touched every part of my life and taught me that I am called to pastor. My life isn't perfect as the paragraph above makes it seem. But I have traveled through those harder times and found strength and support through them. Hoping to use this blog as a spot to write my thoughts, feelings and stories as I keep on living life! God Bless you and keep you. We each need to remember the Divine is within each of us. Be kind to yourself and to others.

  1. I like how you wrote that it’s the “familiarity” of it that makes them so likable. What a cool way to explain how it worked. Nice that they are mops mommies too. Heck, they will probably be speaking at convention at this rate:).
