Members of Virtuous Sisters, Connie’s discussion group, collaborated on the publication of these newsletters. Each issue contains favorite writings by Connie, as well as recipes and a compilation of different writings from the members of Virtuous Sisters.

Connie on the Internet

Connie’s writings were first published in her hand created newsletter Happy Housewifery. The July/August 1998 issue of her newsletter was scanned into electronic format by Jen and is available for download as a PDF document.

Shortly after the world entered the 21st century, Connie’s writings reached the internet and became available by subscription to the Hidden Wisdom Yahoo group. Two resources for reading a sampling of articles she has written to this group are the Connie’s Writings section of this site and the book Housewifery Journal – Wisdom from a Modern day Pioneer Homemaker.

Sisters of Wisdom newsletters (available for download on our site) contain favorite writings by Connie, as well as recipes and a collection of different writings from the ladies of Virtuous Sisters, a Yahoo group for discussion of Connie’s writings. Membership to Virtuous Sisters is by invitation only. However, you can get to know several of the members by reading their blogs.
