The first several years I homeschooled, I believed it was my job to be alongside my child, teaching and sitting alongside my children the whole time they worked.

"As shocking as it is, not everyone will love everything you say, and you need to be able to deal with criticism without coming unraveled. Ask any writer. Furthermore, if every reader always loves every word you ever write, I mean this nicely, but you are not writing anything that interesting. Write the real stuff, the hard stuff, the true stuff. Literature is too saturated for cotton candy fluff. Most readers are craving truth-tellers who don’t sanitize their words to avoid criticism. Be brave."

So, so good from +Jen Hatmaker

This is such an excellent piece by +Lisa Jacobson over at Club 31 Women. 
 
Do you have a fall-apart child? A child who literally falls apart when asked to do something?

A friend emailed me with a question regarding her fall-apart child and some things she could do to help her child keep it together.

Our own perspectives can have such an impact on our marriages and marriages in general. They can affect how we view our spouse and what effort we pour into our marriage. Not only that, but what we do with those hard places and those hard times can either…
It is really important to try to understand where your spouse is coming from when it comes to dealing with conflict in marriage. Listen more and talk less.

Do you need help decluttering? I am constantly working to keep the clutter at bay -- if it isn't functional, it goes!
 
Are you dealing with a lot of clutter? These 15 rules can help you make decisions about what to keep and what to declutter. 

Clutter makes me crazy and my family (and I - gulp) create a whole lot of it. These rules help me rein things in and regain peace again.
