Intentional Motherhood in the New Year

Intentional Motherhood

I am not one for New Year’s resolutions. (Who actually keeps those?!) But I did use our extended holiday to reflect on how I want this new year to look for our family and what things I want to instill in my children as far as values and instruction.

If you’ve been doing the same, I wanted to share some resources we have that might help. I’ve written several “Intentional Motherhood” posts on the following topics. If you ever wondered how we do or have done things as a family these posts will tell you!
