The ABC's of Our Family Values



     I am so glad I found a MOPS group here! I went this week and we watched a short video clip by Danica Russell where she talked a little about her book, A Little Radical: The ABC's of Activism. A book for kids to start thinking about pro-active problem solving. As an exercise, we all wrote down our own. When I got home I decided to find a bible verse for each one as well.

Guest Post | Simple Steps: How I Plan Meals

     Today, instead of writing about me, I would like to share a friends blog post. Alesia and I met in a Facebook group of Russian mama's. We had quite a few things in common, started chatting, and now we even co-admin another Facebook group. We have never met in person, but if given the chance, I would take that chance in a heart beat!

Whenever unpacking boxes, it was like opening Christmas gifts, I never knew what I was going to find in there. And some times even had some surprises, like, "Hey, a whisk in my clothes!" Or "Hey, my shirt between glass vases." On top of that, the more Chickadees we had, the more stuff we had, the harder it got. This time I refuse to let it be chaotic, so I made a plan...

Things you may not know about me #3


     I may have been born in the city and grew up in the suburbs, but once I moved to the country side, I found my home.
