Friday Inspiration

1. Favorite Road Trip Snack Since I was on a road trip over the weekend, I had a bountiful stash of snacks and treats. I tried the Chex Mix “Sweet and Salty” for the first time on the trip and it was awesome. It wasn’t too sweet, but it wasn’t bland like I feel original Chex Mix can be. 2. Inspiring Blog Megan Scheibner and her husband Steve are a homeschooling family of eight. I’ve only been following her blog, {Read More}

It shows all the locations this one center supplies packed shoeboxes to around {Read More}

Faith and Family Building Apps

When my kids were little (infants & toddlers) it seemed I had time to listen to Christian programming such as Focus on the Family daily. Crazy I know. Now, with elementary to college-aged, there doesn’t seem to be a moment — a quiet moment at least — for much of anything. Certainly not time to schedule in a radio broadcast at specific times of the day. Thank the good Lord for podcasts! I love being able to fit in a podcast {Read More}
