Helping Tween Girls Cope

If you have a tween girl, there is a lot of coping to do. We have found a series of books that help a young girl grow in her relationship in the Lord while understanding the changes that might be going on with her whole life. I wanted to share this series with you in case you and your daughters are looking for God's plan and purpose and struggling with finding and forming good relationships. I love the "Lily Series" from Nancy Rue. Part of the reason I love this series is that it protects the girl’s childhood as much as possible. Our kids are growing up so fast these days and one of the premises of Waldorf education is to try and preserve the childhood experience for as long as possible. For example, some aspects of war are not taught until well after concrete reasoning. Although these books are not written from that Waldorf perspective it does seem to fall in line with our values in this way. We love "The Body Book" and “The Beauty Book.” They talk about inner beauty and they both have a chapter about nutrition and exercise. And “The Virtues Book” and “The Buddy Book” both talk about relationships and attitude.

The books featured at the beginning of this post are available in my Amazon store at the bottom of this page or my homepage.

How I became Considering frugal

Fueled by the growing list of pollution related allergies my family suffered from each day, and inspired by my 97 year old grandmother who could recycle ANYTHING before recycling was cool, back in 2011, I decided (in the spirit of the Julie/Julia Project...) to embark on a journey to see just how much one family could do to change our planet. I didn't consult any other parties before I launched this idea. Thankfully my husband, daughter and son are usually my biggest supporters. Here is the catch; as I'm normally very thrifty (you can note from early blog posts), I was looking for ways that I could reduce our carbon footprint and make socially responsible purchases without increasing our spending. Mmmmmm. We succeed in changing some of our habits a bit and finding ways to reduce our footprint. There were lots of fun epic fails alone the way too! But the biggest change we have made over the course of the last six years, was to move from the mega city of Phoenix to Wyoming. You can read my full bio on my About Me page.
