One of the ways we do that is to nourish our bodies with real food.       For the last several years, we have taken strides to eat in a more healthy manner. Giving our bodies real food that truly nourishes, helps us in living our lives to the fullest. I am currently in the midst of a 6-week challenge and have been eating … Read More

Sabbath Sunday – Rest

posted in: Write 31 Days | 0

Sundays are for rest. We go pretty much non-stop six days out of the week that on Sundays we need to seek rest.     Final Thoughts on Sabbath Sunday – Rest How does rest look like to you? Is it a walk, or time spent in nature? Is it an afternoon nap? Whatever it is, that helps you to find rest, seek it and find it. Rest is so important for our bodies, our minds, and our souls.   … Read More

Give Yourself Grace

posted in: Write 31 Days | 0

I knew the day would probably come, and it did. I was unable to get a post up yesterday. Instead of beating myself up about it, I decided to give myself grace. Living the Full Life doesn’t mean that you are living perfectly, you need to be able to give yourself grace when needed.     What I have learned through these 21 days so far is that there are nuggets of time that I have not previously used wisely, that … Read More

Have Fun

It’s late, and I am tired but today was a fun day. Living the Full Life means we need to learn how to have fun.     It was costume day at our co-op, and there are only a few moms who participate, but you better believe I am one of them. To me, it is fun. To my kids who are watching me, it is fun. They love that I take dressing up seriously. After co-op we spent time enjoying … Read More

I … Read More

Breathe

posted in: Write 31 Days | 0

Today was a day to sit back and catch our breath. After a warm breakfast of chocolate chip pancakes topped with a mound of whipped cream, I announced to the kids we were skipping school today. Some days you need to just toss the planner aside and take a moment to breathe.     We have been non-stop, and I can tell when my kids are at their limit.  Learning is compromised when we feel like we don’t have space … Read More

Praise and Prayer

I had a different topic written on my calendar for today’s post, however, I am feeling led to share about the life-giving power behind leading a praising and prayer-filled life.  Let’s talk about Praise and Prayer.     Over the last week, I have been reminded of the power behind both offering our praises and lifting our prayers. When we find things in our life that we are able to praise God for, it adds to living a full life.  … Read More

Today, I just want to share how much I love supporting my kids in their endeavors. There is no scripture jumping out at me as supporting me in this as being a way to Live the Full Life; however, I can tell you that nothing gives me more joy than being my kids biggest fan!     This morning, I was out at the soccer fields in the pouring rain cheering my boys playing soccer, and as I am writing … Read More
