Parenting, Transition, and Working Without a Net

It seems as though much of what we hear about in Christian circles these days is balance. Balance in our homes, balance in our Spiritual lives, balance in our health.

I’m over at The Better Mom today addressing what we can do in times when balance is just not possible – to keep things from spiraling too far out of orbit. I do hope you’ll join me there!

If you’ve just landed here from The Better Mom, I want to extend a warm, spring Viennese welcome to you! Grab your cafe latte, pull up a chair and make yourself at home!

This post is part of the Time Out: Finding Balance as a Busy Mom series.

Picture This – More Birthday {GIVEAWAYS}!

Blog Birthday GiveawayYou all know that we live in a wee little village in rural Ireland. We love it. It’s quaint, green, lush. The people are incredible and you can’t beat the tea!

While life there is not perfect, it certainly is an adventure. One of the many blessings we’ve been given while living there is the opportunity to pursue our creative sides. My hubby started learning about photography a few years ago, though he’s always been interested since having a shutter-bug father himself.

Well, you guys, he’s seriously talented. His eye for detail and beauty is astounding – especially since he’s such a manly stud! The creative side in him is inspiring. He is graciously offering an 8×12 print of one of his best photos from our time here in the states. The columbine is the state flower of Colorado. I had never seen one in person before until we went to a little town called Ouray a couple of weeks ago. Wow.
