A day of reflection. A time taken away to devote our minds and hearts to God. It sounded like a good idea for me, and in some ways it was… there are no coincidences in God’s kingdom. But the day of reflection, presented and planned with a lunch to boot felt more forced than supernatural.… Continue reading The Christian Minimalist
On another note… here is my shameless plug for my girls. It’s girl scout cookie season and my girls have a very specific goal- sell as many military boxes as possible. The girls will earn a special patch if they each sell 12 boxes. These boxes have no shipping attached, you can simply order online and… Continue reading Shameless plug for Girl Scout Cookies
Happy Pilgrims. Those were the words I read this morning. They sounded more to me like an oxymoron than a spiritual taunt, but it intrigued me.

This week was filled with down time, no holidays and no place to run. The kids were inpatient, fighting and regressing from their lack of a schedule. I… Continue reading Maybe we should stop asking what’s best for our children
