We had the best kickoff to our Heal the World Book Club earlier this week. My heart did a happy, bubbly dance when Newbery Medal winner Sharon Creech, author of our first book club pick The Unfinished Angel, sent a personal message to our club participants!

Since the month has only just begun there’s still time for you to join and see for yourself all we have planned to inspire yours this winter: videos, a mentoring guide, weekly Instagram challenges, a theme song–oh, I love sharing good books! Details and free registration here.

For the depleted mama: One of the best things I did two years ago was enroll in Lisa Byrne’s course, Replenish 365. It’s an entire year of life coaching for busy moms, a year of learning to care for ourselves so we can keep caring for others!

I was continually blown away by the quality of Lisa’s materials, videos, and gifted teachings–it was SO worth the dollars spent! One of the best benefits is the lifetime access you receive, so you can continue the course each year if you choose. Sign up for the 2017 program ends this weekend–is this the right year to invest in you? 

I would have LOVED this preschool program if it had been available back in the day–with its focus on the liberal arts & its gentle simplicity.

For those itching to get started ‪homeschooling, this is a lovely way to spend intentional time with littles. Be sure to peek at the sample week!

Steve and I had the unbelievable chance to celebrate his 40th birthday in the beautiful (& warm) Caribbean this week!

Has your family signed up for the Heal the World Book Club yet? We’ll be kicking things off on February 1st and it would be such an honor to have you join us!

This will be a low-key commitment, and even if you can participate one month but not the others you’re still invited. I think this will be a life-changing opportunity for our kids; details and registration form here!
