Family Meeting

Written by:   |  Found in: Parenting  |  4 Comments »

One of my favorite shows on television is The E Channel’s era based shows.  I am particularly fond of “Remember The 80’s”; I love this one because I am a product of this Flock of Seagulls hair wearing, parachute pants sporting generation.  I wish I still had those pants, my kids would love them! My […]

Earlier this week I posted my two goals for the year; today is how I will reach my goals.   Pursue.  I’ve already written how Men Must Pursue, as we reject passivity. More than anything else, pursuing my family involves how I use my time. After a long day (or any day), my tendency is […]

  I am sure you are more acquainted with the saying “Starting Out Strong”…   However, that is just not me this year.   I am starting out with a messy and unorganized home, a sewing project 3 months behind, moving boxes still unpacked {from MARCH} and to top it all off; sick.   Usually […]

Happy “No” Year   “This is going to be my year, I just know it!”   Last time I said this, I ended up having one of the roughest years of my life. I lost a dear friend, had a couple of mini-health crises, and ended up on the doorstep of what I was sure […]

{originally published in 2013}   I don’t know about you, but I am pretty hard on myself.  I set up these fantastic goals, mostly unrealistic, and then become annoyed, depressed, and angry with myself.  I have resolved to stop the cycle this year!

Family matters, dr. Tim Kimmel, Darcy Kimmel, Grace Based Parenting

Do you have a Family Mission Statement? Don’t hang your head if you have to say, “Not really” or “I don’t even know what that is”. Nobody’s judging. You’re in the majority.   A Family Mission Statement is what we want our family known for… what we want to accomplish as a family. It’s our […]

A List Worth Trying

Written by:   |  Found in: Parenting  |  3 Comments »

I love lists, or at least the idea of lists.  By nature, I’m a little too free-spirited to really use a list, but there are small, neglected Perfect Country recesses in my brain that nudge at my Fun Country self and ask if they can play.  I entertain these thoughts occasionally and go through phases […]
