Our Life On Purpose

We have 940 Saturdays until our kids graduate from high school and go on to college. That's 18 summers to make the most of our time with them.

Every year, we make resolutions to be intentional. Eat less, exercise more, get up earlier etc. We want to live our life on purpose, be intentional about parenting and being together and make family our favorite thing.

About two times a month we send out updates in our newsletter about what we're doing. We'll be creating our own resources on how to get more out of your family time, so sign up to be notified when they're finished.

Our Life

We love family time, and though sometimes that means we have more mess than we'd like, we want to share our journey with you. Follow along as we share our favorite experiments and experiences as we try to make every moment count.

Though the days are long, the years are short.

Day 7: these incredible conversations I get to have with #hannahnoelle on the way to school. This is an edited version of her description of how we can trap a deer to have for thanksgiving dinner after I told her that we didn't hunt or have deer meat. I think you get the gist. #graceisthankful2013

Day 6: Rest. When you get all the kids to bed, and you can sit down and prop your feet up without feeling guilty. That and pajamas. #graceisthankful2013

10 Miles

As she was getting back into shape after having Liam, Meagan texted me from a run and said we should run the Virginia 10 miler.
