A Social Break This past fall, when the engine of homeschooling and managing life amid lockdowns and working from home seemed to hit full steam, I logged off of social media. I deleted the apps from my phone and I told myself I would be fully present. I’d look into my kids’ eyes when they […]

Shining Light on Social Media

Social Media

I tiptoe out of a dark room into a dark kitchen. I prepare a simple breakfast and a pot of coffee before cozying up on a screened-in porch to wait for the day to break into the night. Then I flip on a light overhead to see and meditate and study the holy words that […]

Savor the I AM This Christmas
