Much of our purpose is to uplift and glorify God through our writings. We also want to pass on any valuable resources that will help us in our daily walk with the Lord. Here is a breath of fresh air to help moms tackle the day to day grind with a purpose and to make every minute count. (Taken from Brenna Stull's email: Need Some Summer Survival Tips?)
What is it that you do?"
Are you home with kids this summer? Do you wonder some days what you are getting done in the midst of the chaos and busyness that life with kids brings?
When Tony Campolo's wife Peggy was home full-time with children she was asked this question, “And what is it that you do, my dear?”
“I am socializing two Homo sapiens into the dominant values of the Judeo-Christian tradition in order that they might be instruments for the transformation of the social order into the kind of eschatological utopia that God willed from the beginning of creation.”*
Now that's important stuff.

Summer Organizational Tip:
Choose a drawer that is centrally located in the home to be a seasonal drawer.
Store sunscreen, goggles, sunglasses, and visors there in order to grab them quickly when exiting the house and easily store them as you walk back into the house.
When fall comes and temperatures start to drop, pack the summer things away and use the drawer to stash hats and gloves.
