Welcome to Things I Teach My Children


When I became a mother five years ago, I quickly realized just how much I needed friendships and community to keep my head above water.

That’s not always an easy thing to find. Especially when you’re having babies!

But I was amazed at how many people were willing to open up and share that they also needed others.  And all this “needing” one another has made the relationships forged during this time of life especially meaningful and significant.

This blog is the ongoing result of the communities and discussions I’ve been privileged to be a part of as a parent.  It includes the big ideas we talk about when it comes to teaching our children and the ways we are dealing with the challenges of our time.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you’ll enjoy your time, and perhaps add your own thoughts to the discussions. You are very much needed.
