She sat in my office stiff and straight-backed looking down at my desk as though something was keeping this 16 year old girls’ rapt attention. She twirled her hair. She bit her lip. She looked at her shoes. She fussed with the sleeves of the sweater she was wearing … in August … in Florida. […]

Developing a heart of contentment can be challenging even in the midst of the summer season when the living is supposed to be “easy”.

Potty Training…A Spiritual Discipline?

I am currently in full potty training mode. For the past three weeks, my schedule has revolved around a timer, asking Makaylan if she needs to go potty, and then spending what seems like hours in the bathroom.
