Traveling….finally

I was beginning to think that I’d never get to say that we were really traveling. . .

There for awhile, we were bouncing from Texas to Missouri, and back.

But, the last two months, we really started traveling, and have been able to have more adventures.

Never in my life, did I think we’d get to say that we had your traditional summer nights. . .cooking s’mores and going swimming. . . AND get to see snow ( real snow) all in one summer!!

We also got to go see the St. Louis Arch!! That’s one place that we really wanted to take the kids!! The tram was still not up and going (COVID), but it was a great experience for them-nonetheless. I can’t wait to take them back, when they can see from the top of the Arch!! We also found Cardinal Stadium.

I love how much a lot of our adventures turn into learning experiences, as well!! This is what I dreamed! That my kids would be able to learn about the world through traveling experiences!!

Announcement

Good morning, Good morning!!

Last night, I released an announcement over on my Facebook (@RootedMama) and Instagram (@rootedhealthymama) on what we are doing to expand!

Head on over- like and follow Facebook and Instagram for updates as these next few months unfold.

It’s 2020!!!!

It’s a New Year!!

I can hardly believe that we are already 4 days into 2020.

Looking back over the last 1.5 to 2 months…I’m in awe.

I’ve enjoyed writing SO much more than I thought I would.

And, I needed some time for reflection and waiting on God.

To reflect on where this blog is going, reflect on what things we need to set up for when we begin traveling, and what things to work on that I am passionate about!!

The details are still being worked out…and I do feel like they are starting to come together.

Before I start releasing any kind of news….

I want to know how your Christmas celebrations were? Did you stick to your plan? Or did you have to adjust?

What about planning for the new year and the new decade?

What goals are you planning for?!

I love the newness and all… I’m also loving to learn the discipline of the day-in-and-day-out. To lean into the mundane….because that is where the real stuff happens.

30 Days of Thanksgiving: Day 30

Wow- it seems crazy that today is the last day of November. What a joy to celebrate a season of gratefulness and carry that over into the next season.

Today, I’m grateful for an organization that I came across called “Back on My Feet”. I’m excited to learn more about them and get involved in what they are doing.

Thanks for joining me on this journey!

30 Days of Thanksgiving: Day 25

A while back, I posted how my husband’s grandpa sat and talked with us, this summer. He told us how he would sit down with a pastor, every time he had a new pastor. He would tell the new pastor “If you aren’t stepping on my toes, I’m not going to be sitting in these pews”. He went on to say that too many people nowadays only want to be praised. They don’t want to be held accountable, and be told the areas they need to grow in.

Yesterday, at church, I was grateful to hear our pastor say some hard things. To challenge the congregation. That we may not be who we think we are in any given situation.

I’ve heard this before. But, it was the first time that it felt authentic and genuine.

So, today…I’m grateful for pastors who step on their congregations toes. I’m sure you get a lot of complaining emails for it. But, know that there are some of us who support it!
