Caring Enough to Take Action Creates Change

pexels-photo-42384.jpeg

I actually had a completely different topic lined up to talk about today but a series of events prompted me to write about something that has been weighing heavily on my heart lately. While I don’t watch the news, I’m not completely oblivious to the events that happen around the world or unaware of the disconnection. It seems that this disconnection has been calling my attention louder each time. It’s a sense of separation, that somehow instead of us being a community, a unit, a collective made up of individuals impacted by the same things, we’re each little pods. If something happens that doesn’t directly impact one’s pod, it’s like it didn’t happen. Continue reading “Caring Enough to Take Action Creates Change”

Parenting Book Club!

This post contains an affiliate link meaning I’ll receive a small financial compensation should you choose to purchase the book. I use this to compensate the time invested into the daily content provided here.

I have two young kids and I’m not going to lie, sometimes it can really be a challenge! A couple of years ago, I purchased a book that I found incredibly helpful. My husband and I read it together and found it to be a very good tool in our parenting toolbox. You know how it is, things got busy, we stopped reading regularly and then forgot about the book. We’re at a point that we found ourselves reaching for our toolbox and the chapter we left off on was the perfect tool for the issue! Continue reading “Parenting Book Club!”

Discussing Privilege

I love opening up the conversation about things that may be uncomfortable but through the conversations we have can help change our perspective and inspire solutions. I love how the presenter of this talk approaches the subject of privilege and challenges people to use it to help others.  Continue reading “Discussing Privilege”

Love is the Answer

This post is inspired by a guest post I wrote for Hugh on his series 51 Weeks 51 Songs from the past.

This week’s song is one I love and hate at the same time. I love the beat, the message, and the awareness. I hate that even 14 years after it was released that its message is as relevant as ever! Continue reading “Love is the Answer”

J.K. Rowling’s Teachable Moments

Today I wanted to share some teachable moments from J.K. Rowling’s life. As successful as she is today, I have to say I admire her transparency. She’s very open about the things she had to overcome to get to where she is today. I admire so many things about her and find her both incredibly inspirational and down to earth. It’s really hard for me to pick my favorite of the 10 rules of success in this video. They are all really good!  Continue reading “J.K. Rowling’s Teachable Moments”

Child-lead Memory-making Learning

One thing I particularly enjoy about homeschooling is the approach of child-lead learning. While I’ve decided to order curriculum to make planning easier for me, there are so many opportunities to teach. You don’t have to be a homeschooled family to do it either. For instance, my girls and I read The Boxcar Children before they go to bed. We were reading a chapter about the kids needing to write but they didn’t have a pen to write with. I asked my daughter what they could use instead of a pen given their circumstances. Continue reading “Child-lead Memory-making Learning”

Holding it Together

This is for all of you who are struggling to keep things together. I want to encourage you to lean on those around you for support. Don’t take on more than you can handle. You don’t have to do it all or have it all together all of the time. Continue reading “Holding it Together”
