Annie Burnside and Soul to Soul Parenting

Posted Sep 28, 2010 2:49 PM

I started flipping through the pages and I realized quickly that this was a special book. I read a lot of self help and personal growth (my basement is filled with them), but this book was really speaking to me.

A few weeks ago I had the privilege of presenting at Just Born and Nearly Born Night, an educational afternoon for new or expecting parents. One of the other presenters spoke about cloth diapers, and I was amazed by what she said. I was also kind of bummed that I didn’t have this information when my girls were really little - my third daughter is on the verge of being fully trained.

Emotional and Physical

Posted Aug 23, 2010 10:26 PM

In our house we talk a lot about how the mind can affect the body, Jacey has being hearing this her whole life, but I know from experience that when you are in distress, it’s harder to embrace this concept. So instead of lecturing her about the interrelationship between physical and mental health, I just spent time with her so we could talk.
