My son and I have been talking about trust. It's a hard concept to define, so I ask my son to raise his arms over his head and I tell him that I promise I will not tickle him. He looks a little warily at me, but he does it. I don't tickle him. That's trust, I tell him.…Continue

At a certain age it seems like you have to drink to be considered an adult. While I’m not a complete prude when it comes to the idea of having a drink or two, I definitely cannot keep up with the Jones’ when it comes to wine drinking or partying.
The reasons for this might be based on the fact that I am…Continue

This past year has brought a number of new babies to our family and close friends, so every few months, our boys were hearing about another baby being born.

We all make associations with people based off their names. For example, I don't think "handyman" when I am introduced to guys with names like Trevor or Preston. And I don't think "financial genius" when I meet a woman named Bambi or Sequoia. Am I instantaneously judging people based off their name without actually getting to know them first?…
Years ago when my daughter was 10, I realized that my relationship with my daughter was much smoother and easier than that of the average or typical relationship. Yes! I said easier. I have always been told, wait for it, things will change as soon as she’s a teenager.
Fast forward to age 14, the biggest challenge for myself was that she thought she was “ugly” because she has always been very tall for her age. Those feelings quickly changed after she became more involved in sports.…Continue

Homeschooling Anxiety can be a pretty stressful self-imposed annoyance. But we all get it at sometime or another. It could be just making a decision whether or not you should homeschool, the abundance of different curriculums, or trying to find out what works best for your children.

What does it take for us to trust our own instincts? Does having the confidence to pose a question mean that we have the guts to advocate for what we believe is right? Asking questions is probably the first step in trusting ourselves. It shows we value what we think.
But what does it take to trust ourselves? Experience. There's two ways to get that- the hard way- actually go through it or the easy way- learn from someone else. I think that's why stories can inspire us. To the…Continue
