7 Ways Decluttering Can Improve Your Life and Change the World

This fall, I'm on a mission to change my life, and the world… by decluttering my home. I know it sounds fabulous and I bet you’re just covered in goosebumps at the idea of cleaning up your house and yard. I know. I know… However, I am a stressed mom. I really try not to be, but I have certain … well, triggers. Those little things that make me need to stop and breathe deeply as I walk down the stairs in the morning into my family room. It’s the shoes. They’re everywhere, especially the ones that don’t fit anyone…

3 Kid-Friendly Spiritual Truths In the Eclipse

I love using nature and science to teach spiritual truths to my kids. I find it really helpful when there is a natural event that applies directly to teaching my kids. And this eclipse is perfect in so many ways! Set aside all the end times prophesy fulfillment for a moment. While I certainly find some of it suspiciously significant, and while I am not entirely opposed to teaching my kids about end times prophesy, I think this occasion offers much more for the little ones.

The Eclipse: Is It A Sign of the End Times?

Is it the end times or will everything continue just as it has all these years... will Messiah ever return?

That's why when similar teachings arose about this solar eclipse, I didn't have the energy to get involved, no matter how much I actually do believe that God uses nature to…

Some people call me crunchy, but I’m hardly the crunchiest granola in the box. In fact, I don’t particularly resonate with that term, even though on the surface you may look at my lifestyle and see some crunch. Rather, I consider myself one who is seeking Eden – God’s Design for Natural Living. While there are many aspects of crunchy culture that I apply to my life, there are possibly just as many that I ignore. That’s because my desire is to be defined by the Word of God, and not by any worldly category or belief system,…

Introducing ‘A Deeply Rooted Life’ – Why the Change and What it Means 

Hopefully, you’ve already seen the new name of the blog, but whether you have or haven’t, I’d like to introduce you to A Deeply Rooted Life, the new and improved blog. When it comes down to it, as much as I loved my old blog’s name, and as much as it resonated with my purpose in writing, I also felt it left something to be desired from a reader’s perspective. The word Religion is sticky, and people don’t like feeling sticky. Even believers struggle with that word and so it really had to go. I didn’t want you to be held back…
