My most favorite part of my job is that I get to:
* Be outdoors for a lot of my day
* Teach students how to learn and play outside
* Watch as students learn to love being outdoors, building forts, examining the world around them, and building their own self-confidence

My new planner, pens, and highlighters.
Also, Sundays are for getting prepared for the following week. So, I’m thankful for preparation!
Today, I’m grateful for friends who not only get me, but also inspire me to be a better friend, as well! Friends who are giving and gracious, and who point me towards God!
Today, I’m grateful that Forest Schools and Outdoor Education is on the rise! It’s a beautiful thing to see kids being able to play and learn in nature!
Join me, beginning tomorrow, on my annual “30 Days of Thankfulness”.
Some days and some years. . . It’s hard. Creating a spirit of thanksgiving in your heart takes intentionality and discipline.
If you find yourself finding the negative in your day-to-day, and you’re done with it- join me.
I think you’ll find a new habit, and a little bit of that Negative Nancy weed pulled out of your heart.
What do ya say?! Join me!
It’s Thanksgiving!!! Today, I’m so grateful for a day of celebration. A day to spend with family and making memories!!
Today, I’m thankful that I can be weak. I can not have it all together, and I can find strength in Jesus.
A couple of days ago, I was feeling the weight of the world. All day, I was feeling like I was not good enough. I needed to sit through the pain, process, yet I could not just get out of my own head.
By the end of the day, my husband was getting ready to teach. And, I decided to take the kids, go get gas, a Dr. Pepper, some Hershey’s Milk Chocolate, and go on a drive.
After we filled up, and left the gas station, I was talking to God, telling Him, it was too much. I hate feeling this way. And, He sent me two songs. At just the right moment, He sent me a song about moving mountains, and a song about being enough.
And, in that moment, I felt heard and known, and seen by Him. And the weight of not feeling like I was enough, lifted.
Today, I’m thankful for these God moments.
Also- please know, that if you’re feeling like it’s too much, or you are not enough. You are. You are loved, you are more than enough, just the way you were created to be.
