SO053: Thoughtful Truth

Season 9: Quick Ways to Organize Your Attitude But we also need bite-sized truths to meditate, not just general reading. To meditate means to deliberate over, to ponder, to consider, to mull over.

In order to meditate on truth, we have to know truth. We … Read More

SO052: Intentional Stories

Season 9: Quick Ways to Organize Your Attitude It’s difficult but essential to notice that our perception of what’s going on is an interpretation, a story overlaid on the bare facts. Stripping the story away entirely so that we are unconnected, stoic observers of our lives is not desirable, but we also do not have to be stuck with the story that first and naturally pops into our minds. And by changing our thoughts, we can change the story we … Read More

SO051: Realistic Expectations

Growth Mindset for Moms

posted in: mother, podcast, productivity | 1

Moms are all about growth. It starts with growing a new little life right inside of our own selves. The growth is in our bellies, and then it’s in our arms. We go through boxes of clothes, changing them out seemingly overnight because growth is so rapid. Our family size grows, gradually, over the years, and we learn to adjust to more needs, more love, more food, more laundry. Life overflows abundantly and we get the front-row seat to the … Read More

SC049: Organized Homeschool White Board

Season 8: Organize Homeschool Stuff I’ve created a few iterations of a chore board over the last year and a half. First it was a poster board frame, and I wrote directly on the hard plastic frame. That worked well, because I could tuck it away quickly and easily when I didn’t want our schedule, consequences, and school assignments on display. Then, my 3-year-old used it as a slide (which means he was climbing up it). The frame and plastic … Read More
