Christmas 2016, went to walmart, saw a man asking for spare change with his 2 year old. I thought man asking for money, a day before Christmas with your kid, that can't be good? He has a total of 4 kids, didn't bring the others because they were old enough to see he was asking for money & that would crush him, he said. He had not been able to buy his 4 kids gifts for Christmas. We went in, picked out gifts for his 4 kids & wife. Placed them in gift bags & sent him on his way. This grown man cried, gave me & boys a big hug. My boys were more excited about this event than any gift they received that night! Our misson is simple: teach kids to excersize, read & bless a fellow human whenever possible.
Have a blessed Monday!
Happy Father's Day to our beloved Pappa! It has been such a joy watching you father Joel, and I look forward to seeing you as a Pappa to our baby girl soon! My favourite moments are hearing Joel squeal with delight and say, "more! more!" when you swoop him up in your arms with tickles and kisses! Or when he gets so excited when you come home from work he runs and gives you hugs! We love your affection, your playfulness, your joy, your smiles, your patience, your dedication, and your cuddles! As a Father you are modelling God's love for His children, which is the greatest gift you could give our children. We love you sooo much! ❤️
//EDUCATION RETHINK//📚 Today’s kids and young adults have too much negative energy all around them. Whether it is negative comments on social media, means texts going back and forth, or just overhearing the daily news, kids are drowning in negativity. With all of that considered, it can’t be said enough how much kids NEED positivity in their lives. Having a more positive mindset increases our abilities to overcome adversity, deal with challenges, and ultimately meet our personal goals in life. 💞Some things we love doing in our home each day💞
Model and teach gratitude:
Practicing gratitude just means stopping and reflecting about what you are thankful for. Benefits of gratitude include improved happiness, improved relationships, developing stronger emotional skills, and much more. Take just a few minutes each morning to reflect about what you are grateful for. We try to do affirmations in the car every morning on the way to school. We take it in turns to give each other a compliment and reason as to why we love and appreciate each other. It’s a really sweet way to start the day and gets everyone feeling ready to take on the day.
Encourage a growth mindset:
A growth mindset teaches us that skills can be developed over time with hard work and practice. By encouraging kids to adopt a growth mindset, we help them learn they can accomplish their goals by working hard, learning from our mistakes, and pushing our way through challenges that pop up. Rather than feeling bad about themselves when they encounter a challenge or make a mistake, help kids learn that mistakes actually teach us valuable lessons and are not a ‘bad thing’. I tell our girls that everyday their brains grow which means that they are forever changing evolving and learning.I believe this way of thinking enables them to not get stuck on or tied down to any one thought that doesn’t serve them well.
I love saying to the girls that when they are kind to others, it actually makes them feel good, too. ✨

Those climbing trees? Standing out, and planted firm, and reaching higher? They remind me of what I want for my brood: "My confession is that I've been parenting from a place of rock hard fear, friends. It's led us to a sequestered, ultra metered, trembling kind of life. It's resulted in an uptight, sickly, laughterless existence. All this time I thought safety meant freedom. Safety from people, from pain, from injuries, from sickness, from hardship, from challenge. But in reality, safety only meant shackled." Writing today on parenting, in response to Jamie Winship's Sunday sermon.

#happyfathers day to this human! @neilsinclair365 The only one who shares the journey of parenthood with me. Through all myself doubt, crazy ideas, early mornings and sleepless nights, he encourages me and makes me a better mom and all around human being. As for @levipsinclair, she would not be the person she is without his influence. I see characteristics in her that remind me so much of Neil, it’s crazy. Happy father’s day to you and all the other amazing dads out there.
