Sabbath Sunday – Social Media Fast

posted in: Write 31 Days | 0

On Sunday’s we do our best to honor the Sabbath.  To Rest.  To step away from the every day that crowds our minds and spaces.  Awhile back I started doing a Social Media Fast on Sundays.     So no checking Facebook, posting a picture to Instagram or tweeting. On Sundays, I step away from social media. I used to do social media fasts for a month or 40 days, but it would be hard to do that now because several … Read More

Stretch Yourself

posted in: Write 31 Days | 0

I know I wrote on Day 5 about Knowing Your Limits, well, today I am adding to that.  Yes, I still want you to know your limits and I want you to have freedom in saying, “no” to things that are not within your limits, but I also want to ask you to stretch yourself. Not stretch yourself thin – but stretch yourself in trying new things. Do something you don’t think you can do.     Today is my … Read More

For me – an introvert – this day, although I love it, drains me. Thankfully, I am aware of this, and I take measures to help keep me from losing my cool. If you want to live the full life you need to know your limits. I have two hours … Read More

Family Time

posted in: Write 31 Days | 0

One of the ways that helps me in being intentional about Living the Full Life is making time with my family a priority.  Family Time is something that I long for and something that energizes me and gives me life.     Sundays are our scheduled Family Time. Yes, you read that correctly – scheduled.  Every Sunday afternoon on our calendar is a time slot that says family activity. We are not always sure what that will entail, but like … Read More

Our HomeSchool Home – We’re Not Confined To A Room

posted in: Homeschooling | 10

I just want to start this by saying something, “You don’t need a dedicated room to homeschool!” It is not a requirement, and honestly, I think it is more of a setback. So let me talk to you about our Homeschool Home and why we don’t need a homeschool room.   Homeschool Room Ok, let me admit something here – I used to have a room. Kinda.
