Lent 2014

I can't believe that Lent starts today! Where does the time go?  Until this morning I hadn't given a single thought to Lent, it has been so cold and dreary hear that thoughts of Easter and Spring have been hard to imagine.

We haven't decided yet how we are going to celebrate this Lent but I thought I would share some wonderful ideas I have come across :

Devotionals ~

Place at the Table, A: 40 Days of Solidarity with the Poor We have done this before and it is one of my most favorite ways to celebrate Lent. A beautiful combination of fasting and feasting and connecting us to the rest of the world. You can read about our experience here. Bringing Lent Home with Mother Teresa: Prayers, Reflections, and Activities for Families  I am considering this devotional. Has anyone tried it?

Activities ~

Jesus Tree -There are all sorts of Jesus Tree's out there but this one seems them most applicable for younger kids.  You can print the cute Tree Ornaments here

 Do you have any favorite ways to celebrate Lent? Please share them with me in the comment section.  We are going to decide tonight and I would love new ideas.

Our Favorite Giveback, Ethical, Small Shop Baby Brands

by Emily Betzler July 14, 2019

 As you know, we are in full-on BABY mode over here (and loving every minute of it)!

It seems like the baby game has changed quite a bit since our last baby- there are so many new ethical, small shop, sustainable and giveback brands and products that we've begun to fall in love with! While we still turn to 2nd hand/hand-me-down items as our first resort for finding items for our kids - (it is most economical and sustainable), it has been encouraging and fun to see the myriad of new options! We've loved trying out and supporting some of these brands as we shop with an impact, and are excited to share our recommendations with you! 

Here are our favorite ethical, small shop, sustainable giveback baby brands - and the products we have been using and loving in our everyday life!
