As Told by Nomads by Tayo Rockson

When the Balancing Act Looks Clumsy
Here's some honesty about busyness and priorities and excellence. Do we quit or do we persevere? It's not really about the difficulty of your routine but about the balance mark--your point of focus. (When I took gymnastics, we actually had an X on the wall for us to keep our eyes on. That's what I mean by "balance mark.")

Respect Breeds Heroism
Need a reminder of why we should respect our husbands? Not only is it commanded in the Bible, but it is also logical and helps you, the wife.

Help Him Be Your Hero by Shaunti Feldhahn at Godly Womanhood

The Boarding School Choice
The choices we make for our children are so personal and yet so public, aren't they? Rachel Pieh Jones addresses some insensitive statements made to her regarding boarding school--and challenges us all.

Here: At Home
This week, I thought long and hard about the temptation I've felt to walk away from "the little things" to pursue more recognized work. Have you heard that siren call too? We must be faithful to what "talents" our Master gives us!

The Siren Call of Earthly Significance by Malia at At Home Abroad
