Do you remember 13?
•
It’s almost like you are just waking up to a new world and you’re not quite sure where you fit?  You either over compensate your abilities or underestimate your gifts.
•
It’s the beginning of a new chapter in your life and it’s kinda scary and adventurous at the same time. Every influence and word sticks. (Except those like..”pick up your socks, make your bed, did you take a shower.”) 😉
•
As parents, we know that our influence matters, but so does everything else. Sheltering or helicopter parenting is not an option.
•
Thankful for those other influential areas to our kids lives during these growing up years.
•
So off to his first spiritual retreat this week. A place all of our other kids have attended and served annually.
•
Here’s to the beginning of growth. Bumpy, hard, fun, memorable growth.
•
Pray for our teens. We’re in this together. For every teen that finds a hero, there’s a community of believers surrounding them strong. ❤️
•
Have fun cool cat. You’re my hero.

Boktips! Det er lenge siden jeg har lest mer enn 40 sider i en bok, lite tid har gjort det vanskelig å komme meg gjennom - men så kom jeg plutselig på at lydbok kunne funke for meg! Så nå har jeg faktisk "lest" en HEL bok (HURRA)! Jeg er så avhengig av åndelig input i hverdagen, det hjelper meg holde fokus, gjør meg mer åndelig våken også vokser jeg på det! Jeg har hørt på denne boka mens jeg har sittet og ventet på at barna skal sovne, mens jeg har vasket do og laget mat, det funker for meg 😊. Denne boka har vært som balsam for min litt slitne og uerfarne mammasjel ❤ Her er en smakebit fra kapittel 12: "For every little part of your child's life you try to own and fix for them, you are taking away something of the work and worth of God in their lives. Get rid of the guilt over not being enough. He is enough. Get out of God's way". Åh, så bra! Bort med dårlig mammaskyldfølelse over alt som ikke blir gjort og alt vi føler vi ikke strekker til på og inn med nåde og troen på at Gud er stor nok til å dekke over våre mangler! Andre som har gode kristne bokforslag? Neste lydboka jeg skal ta for meg er "Mom Strong" av Heidi St. John 😀👍 God sommer folkens! Har vært lenge stille fra meg, men til høsten blir det nok noen nye innlegg 😊💌 takk til alle som leser og liker! 💗 klemmer fra Elisabeth #frusolsikke #kristenblogg #whymotherhoodmatters @septemberanne #mommyguilt
What’s your summer calendar looking like?

We’re all about slushies, sun, hair in the face and simple sweet memories. 💕

Knitting with full creative permission.

She has been clicking those needles for two weeks to create her own pattern. No help. No discouragement. Just, pure creative license to have fun and create.
•
She inspires me. Seriously.
And her smile is pretty infectious. Don’t you agree? 😉

You know “that saying” that runs through our minds, mom circles and the books on motherhood?
...
“No one ever told me it would be like this!”
...
Truth. But the beautiful in His time truth.
...
Here’s to the other side of motherhood.
...
No one ever told me. I could have never imagined the goodness and blessing!!!

Easton David Ripley decided he wanted to join us a few weeks early! Our hearts are overflowing with thankfulness for our sweet little boy 💙 #teammotherly #myboy #sweetbaby #son #littleman #eastondavid
“Have you ever wondered why some families have such responsible, obedient children, while yours cannot seem to figure out this respect thing?”
.
“The truth is, the majority of families struggle with this very issue at some point in their journey together.”
.
“And the good news is that there is an answer.”
.
“Mama, it begins with us.”
.
“Just to be clear, most of everything we do as moms begins with us, but we don’t need to feel the weight of finishing.”
.
“We are starters, encouragers, trainers, and facilitators. We are the planters and the growers. But God doesn’t want us to do the pruning or the harvesting.”
.
“You are not responsible to carry the burden of their every decision or pursuit. Don’t become weary in doing well.”
.

I love discovering the strengths in my children in moments like this. 
It’s easy in the motion of the day to see the weaknesses or the correction points.
...
But, in the quiet? That’s when I peek in to discover the hidden strengths.
...
Maybe we need more hands-off observation than repeated  instruction?
...
Dear Summer, this is your quiet, creative side and I cherish it.
❤️

The best memories are made in present time. Feet planted in the moments.
I know it 100% and would never trade convenience or easy for the treasures of living the best life. ❤️
