To Model What Is To Be Treasured At Christmas

I have been long influenced and encouraged by the motherhood-mentoring heart of Sally Clarkson. My heart for homeschooling was largely shaped by the book she co-wrote with her husband, Clay: Educating the WholeHearted Child, and Sally's The Mission of Motherhood: Touching Your Child's Heart for Eternity gave me a sweet perspective for all that I can impart to my children through home and heart. I met Sally at Allume in October. I immediately felt a kindred connection visiting with her. I was so honored when she asked me to join her team at Mom Heart, a site "where any mom can come to be encouraged, equipped, and enabled as a mother after God’s heart." I'm excited to share that I will be a monthly contributor at Mom Heart. In addition, I will be attending my first Mom Heart conference in Denver in January. Wanna join me? I'd love to meet you if you plan to attend!

My first post for Mom Heart is live today. Perhaps, like me, you think of your family as seeing "Jesus as the reason for the season", and yet, as moms, we so often demonstrate with our actions and attitudes a season marked by stress, selfish desires, and at times, an emphasis on tradition as the centerpiece of the celebration.

Please join me at Mom Heart today as I share about modeling for our children the real meaning of Christmas!
