Being a mom is the hardest thing I've ever done, but it has brought me so much joy! I want to encourage other moms on their journey, I'll share motherhood tricks, spotlight tips I've learned from friends, and I hope you will share your ideas. I will focus on secrets that help families stay balanced, healthy, frugal, creative, and closely knit. I will also share favorite fiction and nonfiction books that I have enjoyed. Many blessings to you on your mothering journey!

Finding Meaningful Service Projects, MLK Day

MLK Day is a national day of service - Congress challenges individuals and families to make it a day ON (volunteering together, celebrating Dr. King's legacy of social justice) instead of a day OFF.

Volunteerism offers a great opportunity to teach about (and model) character, selflessness, responsibility, and sacrifice, while exploring a plethora of social needs that are important to your family. It's also a great opportunity to build family relationships and make memories together.

I wrote an article about finding good volunteer projects on my other Giving Kids The Edge They Need to Succeed blog. Go check it out and find a way that your family can make a difference this month and throughout the year.
