‘Gotta Read This!

First of all, check out the blog, Holy Experience. I’ve been so blessed and inspired by the artistry and thoughtfulness even though I don’t even know who this woman is (alas, the surreal nature of the Internet). While you’re there, check out one of her most recent posts: “Seven Daily Rungs…”

Anyway, it was there that I found this encouraging article about parenting. It’s long, so I printed it out (besides, I have all kinds of things to highlight and underline, ya know). At first glance, it looks homeschool-specific, but I’m certain that it applies to all sorts of homes. It comes at a good time for us: Ryan and I are really thinking seriously about the kind of family we want to be; the kind of Christians we want to be; the kind of moments we want to live on this planet. This article is full of warnings, balances, and encouragements. I hope you find it helpful, too!

    Wow…it is 11:19 pm and I have spent forever reading that “encouraging article”. It was excellent! I was also blessed tremendously by the other articles. I am going to print out the “rungs”…and stick them on the refrigerator…not for my homeschooled children… but for me!
    Thanks so much!

    Hi Laura,

    Just wanted to say your mom told me about your blog and I am enjoying visiting. I read the Reb Bradley (that’s who the author is, Ruthie!) article and agree 100%. The man knows of what he speaks! This is a beautiful site.
