five ways to practice listening this summer

Positive action follows listening. These seasons are complete opposites but you can’t have meaningful action without carving out time to intentionally listen and be still. It’s true that the quieter you become, the more you can hear.

Summer is a time to listen as a family so we can approach the action of fall with purpose. In today’s blog post, you will receive five easy suggestions to help your family listen this summer. Enjoy!

why your prayers matter for your student

Your prayers matter for your student.

In today’s blog post, learn more about how you can pray for your student throughout the year. You will also get a chance to learn more about my friend Julie, the author of The ABCs of Praying for Students. Julie and I both believe that when a parent understands how to apply prayer to academic settings, we are empowered as mothers to do the work as our child’s divine advocate. We know that preparing your child to go back to school is busy—picking out school supplies, meeting their teachers, signing your children up for co-curricular activities—and it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by all the things to do for your kids. Not to mention all the jitters that everyone has before school begins when it comes to what friends will be in their class, what activities they will get picked for, and how they will get along with their teachers!

Read more in today’s blog post and allow Julie’s words to calm your parent soul.

we've been matched! {adoption update}

Receiving the news on May 15 that we had been matched was such a sweet gift from the Lord. The only way that I can explain it is that it felt right. There wasn’t hesitation or questioning involved and the phone call that we had brought us to a new level of believing that our decision to adopt was the right decision for our family. Raleigh James is scheduled to be born on Monday, June 10, and we can’t wait to meet him!
