Slow Down

I'm a stay at home mom now. It's something that I've wanted for over 5 years, but it was still a really hard decision to make. I heard a phrase on The Next Right Thing that resonated with me, "all the arrows weren't pointing in the same direction" -- and that was exactly it. I... Continue Reading →
