In this short little segment I start going through the beginning of the book of John.  It would be great if you could read the short passage before you start.  Hope you love it!

In this riveting episode Rebecca and I start off by sharing what we've been up to lately.  I shared a little about my experience at Revelation Wellness Instructor Training and how I recently went to Glamour Shots with my family for family portraits.  

Rebecca shared that she's been struggling with being a homeschool mom and me and everyone else on the live Instagram video gave our hearty agreement that being a mom of any kind can be a stinking beating at points.

So here are our favorite things for this year:

KariAnne writes the decorating and lifestyle blog, Thistlewood Farms from the back porch of her vintage farmhouse in the rolling hills of Kentucky. She followed God's call for her heart and jumped with her family from the busy Dallas metroplex to the middle of the country where she lives with her husband and four children.  If you turn down the winding country road to KariAnne's farmhouse you might find her painting mismatched chairs, listening to the music of the crickets singing in the pasture, singing scripture or walking hand-in-hand with her knight-in-shining-armor husband as the sun sets over the river. She loves sweet tea with lime, thunderstorms, good books, milk glass, yard sales and she is an imperfect DIYer saved by grace.

What we chat about:

  • Technology and teens
  • The relationship with teens and their siblings
  • The challenge of setting rules for kids at different ages
  • Giving consequences that fit the crime
  • Learning to speak "teenager"
  • Modeling the behavior you want to see in your kids
  • The story behind KariAnne's new book
