Can the American family be rescued?

tell me what you think about....

preparing heart soil

planting seeds

waiting for the harvest

Our family is packing up for a journey of

rebuilding.restoring.raising up.repairing


I believe God is waiting to heal and set free of the American family!! Can I say that again??

but it MUST begin with ME...with You---authentically!

Tell me some things that you would like to see change in your family/or have changed -- that have worked and given you more unhurried..being present time ?

I am going to use some of this blog to record our families exodus from unhealthiness. Really the same direction just branching out. I have felt that on my heart for at least 8 years now and have chosen to not listen to it.
I am sure there will be a lot of things that come up along the way..most of which I will share here.  I strongly agree that when we are set free of something we have a responsibility to help set others free. Our stories touch other stories and HELP.  If we keep secrets NO ONE is SET FREE.  I'm sure we will meet many other climbers along the way that we will introduce you to.  I've got some in mind already!
If you are someone you know has a STORY to share that would be encouraging and meets the criteria at the opening of this post please email me!  I would love for them to guest post.

Over the next week or so I will be sharing some HOW-TO's that we will be IMPLEMENTING

No Impact Project
CLICK HERE to read all about it.  We watched his documentary this weekend and WOW!
.  Our country is SO INUNDATED WITH CONSUMING-that we have lost PRODUCING our TIME with each other. We are so harried we can't ENJOY life anymore. I've spent years wondering how to get off this merry go round.  No ANSWER came until last week when we watched this documentary.  Click here for More Fun, Less Stuff

:::for those who didn't receive click here for Ann and Holly's Word Strengtheners!::: I am taking them to Mardel's and have them laminated and possibly putting them on my key chain..not sure yet.  What creative idea would you do with yours?

Don't forget on January 5, 2011 Jen from Finding Heaven will be our guest speaker sharing her story on an area of captivity

January 2, 2011 No Impact Project begins.  See HERE for all the information and pray about starting...even if it is a small step.

that I not be like the warriors of Ephraim, though fully armed, turned their backs and fled when the day of battle came.

Psalm 78:9

Our families need us not to flee!

The individual woman is required . . . a thousand times a day to choose either to accept her appointed role and thereby rescue her good disposition out of the wreckage of her self-respect, or else follow an independent line of behavior and rescue her self — Jeannette Rankin (1880-1973)
