The week before my brother got married, I made a long list of my favorite memories of the two of us growing up. Over half of them were on family vacations.
We shared a bathroom, had bedrooms next to each other, went to the same school, and were part of the same youth group.
But over half of our best times together were on family vacations.
That’s why Dave and I are determined to spend time with our family over the upcoming holidays. We’re not boarding any planes or trains. We’re staying in southern California. But we’re taking time away from our normal routines, away from our computers, and away from our jobs to build memories.
How about you? What are you doing over the upcoming holidays to connect with your family?

Proud to have been apart of our 200 hr yogasoul graduates journey into becoming yoga teachers. This was a special group that each came into training with experience and passion for serving people in their communities. #psychology#emt#nurses#highschoolgraduate#dancer#artist#massagetherapist
These teachers should be proud of the fact that they’re working to create a sacred space that not only offers students refuge from their pressures, but tools for emotional and physical renewal. 🎓👩🎓💯

I made a new HelloTalk account! I got some corrections on this already so I know at least 3 sentences are wrong!
Anyways!! Yes I graduated from high school a few days ago and I’m very proud of myself! So now that that is over I can focus on Japanese (and Spanish) for a while!
The average #highschoolgraduate makes $35K/year which allows you to have a low-cost night out with friends once a month. The average #collegegraduate makes about $55K/year which means you can go out on the town with your friends once a week. Which do you prefer? #Prep4CollegeNow
One of my favorite questions to ask my kids is, “When do you feel closest to God?” Each of my kid has a different answer.
For Nathan, it’s during worship.
He’s been playing guitar since fourth grade, and helping lead worship since sixth grade. It’s meant a guitar lesson every week, and a lot of trips to church for worship rehearsals.
I’ll be honest: Some weeks I wish he would have been willing to skip rehearsal. I wanted him to stay home and get more time with our family. Or maybe I was tired of driving my kids around town.
But he was no fan of skipping. He had made a commitment to be on the worship team, and he needed to be there.
When do your kids feel closest to God? If you don’t know, when can you ask them? And what might you need to do differently to get them more of that time?
Am I the only one who thinks it’s unfair that teens these days don’t have to have awkward phases? Where’s the white eyeshadow? The crimped hair?
I blame YouTube. I demand a do-over. 😂
I can’t believe @maya.bankss is graduating high school... where does the time go 😭 I love you! & wish the best for your college career! 💕 make lasting memories and soak up all you can of what’s left in high school. 📖
