Hitting the Road



I'm heading out the the Hearts at Home Regional Conference in Michigan this weekend. I love hanging out with other moms and hearing what's going on in their lives. It's especially fun to connect with other Mommies-Come-Lately®.

I'll be teaching a workshop called "Baby Changes Everything: Now Tell Me Something I Don't Know", which focuses on how our children change us. I am who I am today because I am a mom.

My other workshop is "How to Help Your Son Your Son Choose Purity Instead of Pornography"--a topic I am passionate about since I believe all boys will face the temptation of pornography to some degree.

My caboose kiddo Christa isn't too happy when I travel. She lets me know she doesn't want me to go, and there are usually some tears. She also usually slips a little surprise in my luggage--a note or one of her stuffed animals. We'll see what shows up when I open my bags in my hotel room.

ON ANOTHER NOTE:

Squidoo is going to give away up to $80,000 to charity by October 15, 2008. Just click here and vote for your favorite charity--there's quite a list to choose from--and $2.00 will be donated to that charity. It's as easy as that!

Hello. I just want to thank you for the wonderful session at Hearts at Home this past weekend. I am now home with my husband and 2 little boys (6 and just turned 3). You touched my heart and I feel called to tell you so. In addition to all your wonderful sharing, you told us of a time when your son was 6 and was telling lies ... I'm there right now! You admitted to pulling away from your own son and let me honesty tell you I am crying as I type this. I so needed to hear you say this. I too have pulled away just a little but even a little is too much. I'm not going to do that anymore - in fact I'm going to get closer to him. I am going to love him through this "phase" even as difficult as it is. Thank you friend - you were one of the angels that spoke to my soul this weekend. Thank you.

Back home and unpacking the suitcases.
Your comment was so, so encouraging to me.
You are doing the best, right thing--loving your son no matter what.
