5 Steps to Being A More Peaceful Mom

We all admire those calm, cool and collected moms who handle with perfect grace a misbehaving child or a surprise dinner guest.

Sometimes it feels like they are a different breed.

But they aren’t. We are all capable of being peaceful moms, all it takes is practice. Here 5 simple things we can do today to be more peaceful.

Today, I’m sharing my thoughts on how to be a peaceful mom over at Family Your Way. Click here to read the rest of the post…

Perfectly Unique

My friend Annie Downs is releasing her new book, Perfectly Unique, today. And if you have any young girls or know any, this is a great book to give as a gift or to read through together.

About the book:
From head to foot, the way you view your body is directly connected to how you serve God. Seriously. From the thoughts you think to the steps you take, every part of you is linked to the divine.
Perhaps you are struggling with your body image or are trying to make sense of why God made you as you are. Maybe you are looking for new ways to understand Scripture or to love God more fully. Either way, this book will take you on a thoughtful, funny, and spirit-filled exploration of the way you were designed and will help you better honor the Creator by learning to value his perfectly unique creation (yourself!).

I’ve “known” Annie for a long time (in blog years). I’ve read her blog, talked with her over rolls and cinnamon butter at Texas Roadhouse (yum) and if she is anything she is faithful, consistent in her love for the Lord and her heart for young women. There are few people who stay true to their calling. She is one of them. Also? She’s one of the funniest writers I know. That’s kind of the trifecta, in my book.

So, go buy Annie’s book if you have young girls. And if you don’t have tween or teen girls, go buy it anyway and give it to someone who does. Every girl needs to read the message that Annie has to share.
