I met Ciara through mutual friends, and she spent a day with us at our farm school to teach a soap-making class.  I was not only blown away by the high-quality products and methods that she used, but was incredibly inspired by her family's story and intention for this business that stretches far beyond just skincare.  @faithfullynaturalsoapco is not just providing families with the best products for your skin, but they are als...

“You are the curator of their childhood.  You are the one who can show them the joys of a simple life.  Teach them to appreciate what is around them.  Practice slow living, don’t rush through life with them.  Have them bake the cookies, even if it takes longer.  Get the Play-Doh out and let them make a mess.  Go on a walk, even though you don’t really feel like it.  Read them lots of stories.  Sing plenty of songs.  -A Homemade Edu...

Why is our presence so important?  Our presence is important because we are a constant model and reminder for our kids of how to approach the world.  How to raise a family.  How to love and serve in a marriage.  How to approach and solve problems.  How to love and serve God and serve the world through His love.  How to embrace this amazing life we have here for a small amount of time.  How to live.  How to love.  How to fully embra...

We are called to a purpose in this life…and it’s the journey to find that calling that we often find ourselves on.  

My devotional this week touched on how "often do we allow fear to paralyze us.  We sit and wait until we are no longer afraid, when we could have acted long before.  God has a plan in place for you, and it may require you to step out of the realm of your comfort zone.  You may be uncomfortable.  You may be scared...

We are currently observing a moment of devastating loss, destruction, and, at the same time, absolute heroism as Russia attempts to invade Ukraine as the people of Ukraine defend their home.

So, how can we help during this time of feeling helpless AND how do we love on our children who are also watching, listening, and processing all of this.  

The Lord continues to do what He needs to do.  We must continue to trust Him no matter wha...
