(Of course it could be harder or other people might have it harder... but let's just agree that life is subjectively hard, complicated, and different for everyone). So anyway, you're there and it's hard and sometimes it's just one more thing on top of one more thing … Continue reading The Story Doesn’t Stop. {A Family Shaped by Grace by Gary Morland – Review}

Books to Grow Your Empathy (Best of Recently)

My favorite books from the last couple months all fall into a similar sub-category. Maybe I made it up, but I feel like each of these books was a really interesting way to build understanding around big topics so that we can move forward with more nuance, grace, and empathy. Non-Fiction One: Unity in a … Continue reading Books to Grow Your Empathy (Best of Recently)

What I Learned This Spring

Emily P. Freeman hosts a linkup each season where we can reflect on what we learned, lighthearted and otherwise.  So here's mine:  consigning through thredup isn't necessarily worth it if you thrifted all your clothes to begin with. However, I have loved it for buying new-to-me clothes!  Related: Money is not really a linear process. … Continue reading What I Learned This Spring

What if? 

  Do you wonder if you could do something? Maybe you should try it. Could you run marathon? Write a book? Bake baklava? Try parkour? Plant a garden? I say no a lot: It's not the right time, I'm busy, It's not for me. With three little kids chatting my ears off and needing all the … Continue reading What if?

I don't know about you but my kids have been insane lately. Or maybe I have. Or maybe life. Or maybe it's just life and the fact that we're running out of coffee here. IDk. But here's a few things that have been making my life happier or spurring me on to more wholeness lately … Continue reading Whole-list-ical (4.12.17)

Whole-list-ical (3.20.17)

Lately I've been feeling a touch resentful of life in general and how things never quite resolve. Somehow I'm only newly learning that even though life does tend to 'work out' it usuallydoesn't  happen before the next thing gets confangled and convoluted. There's nearly always something that needs to get fixed before you think life … Continue reading Whole-list-ical (3.20.17)

INFJ books? What do you think? (Best of Recently)

Modern Mrs Darcy has a monthly linkup of books, but since I've not linked in a good 9 months... I'm going to not be too optimistic of linking up regularly and maybe instead just go for a once a season recap of bests :) I have somehow managed to read 30 books already this year! These … Continue reading INFJ books? What do you think? (Best of Recently)

Whole-list-ical (3.13.17)

Happy Monday! We are enjoying loads of sunshine and I am using new strategy for hopefully helping my kids to fight less: sit outside with them! Ha. We will see how that goes, but it is officially spring weather here and I am happy!  Here are just a few things that have made me smile or brought … Continue reading Whole-list-ical (3.13.17)
