As you begin this week, may you
remember to hold your children loosely, with open hand and outstretched
fingers, rather than white knuckles and clinched fist.
School’s out, days stretch long, and it’s an ideal time to explore…discover…seek adventure.
While I’m encouraging you, I need to encourage myself just as strongly – I’m living in the days when this is so hard…

There are (at least) two reasons it's so hard, today in particular; please continue reading my Monday Benediction, Freedom to Fly (or Fall) at Simple Mom today to find out why….
We're kicking off a new book study at Bloom (in)courage today (and check out (in)courage's new design!). Author Shauna Niequist joins Bloom hosts Jessica Turner and Angie Smith in front of the camera, and I'm the one behind the scenes, writing posts to go with their videos.
It's a fantastic book–part memoir, part recipes–and it will render you both hungry and satisfied. I hope you'll join us (and you can pick up a book cheap and fast at DaySpring!).
