A Balance of Needs {Whole Together Family 11/31}

Every now and then in the past year or two I have found myself online, haphazardly browsing preschool or school school website. I look at the places I've heard of that teach something admirable or in a way that I agree with. Faith based preschools, Spanish immersion preschools, Montessori schools, classes, day camps, and various … Continue reading A Balance of Needs {Whole Together Family 11/31}

Go from here {Whole Together Family 7/31}

We are ourselves, even as we live together as a family. For each other, we make modifications, we make concessions, and we make mistakes. We learn to live as a family even as we all change and become different versions of our same selves. It's a circling of needs and becoming, taking turns, together and … Continue reading Go from here {Whole Together Family 7/31}

When we are imperfectly whole {Whole Together Family 4/31}

I've spent most of my life improving things. I am a One on the enneagram, even though often I wish I was an Eight or aspire to transform into a Five. I am a solid One. I improve, perfect, and rapidly assess situations and figure out what is wrong.

Us-Schooling {Whole Together Family 3/31}

If you ask me how school is going I'll probably give a friendly smile and say it's going great and they're learning everything.

You would find what is right for you and your family. (Maybe you actually can't and that's completely fine. God has that figured out … Continue reading Whole Together Family {31 Days 2018}

Last year somehow the motivation escaped me and I made the goals as the mood struck..in May. and November. but mostly not. I had a reading goal which I surpassed because I overachieve greatly at reading when life is … Continue reading New.

The Story Doesn’t Stop. {A Family Shaped by Grace by Gary Morland – Review}

https://instagram.com/p/BVAMrlmjRWk/ Life is hard. For all of us. (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}

The Lifegiving Home by Sally and Sarah Clarkson {book review}

"Home is not merely a dwelling. It's not merely a state of existence. It's a story, a narrative spun out day by day, a story molded by the walls and hours and tasks and feasts with which we fill our time, reflecting the reality of the God whose love animates every aspect of our being." … Continue reading The Lifegiving Home by Sally and Sarah Clarkson {book review}
