What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

Looking for a little heart warming in these turning-chilly October days....

Rebecca, this is completely unrelated to these (really gorgeous!) pictures. Just a random question: I am struggling to get moving and productive, and since you are the most productive person I know (well, you know what I mean:) I was wondering if I could ask you for some tips? Only when you have time though! And only if you want to!;-) My little girl is 14 months old (I only have the one so far, and one in heaven), and I'm finding I am doing the bare minimum in the way of house work/cooking/pretty much everything. Olivia is still at an age where she struggles to entertain herself for more than a few minutes at a time, and she doesn't have any brothers or sisters yet, so she is quite keen for me to do things with her, or just carry her around:-) Just wondering what you did when you just had corynn? I am wondering if maybe a flexible schedule would help give my day some direction? And maybe include some organised play? Eg: Water play/block time/story time etc? I am planning to homeschool so it would maybe be helpful to get into some kind of rythmn. I so admire you and sometimes feel like I want to fly out and stay with you and LEARN!:-)
Sending love and courage for tackling your *lovely* new home.

One more thing! I remember you saying somewhere that you once lost 14 pounds in a month. And you exercise but don't go to a gym. Just wondering what you did? And how you manage not to eat lots and LOTS when you make such nice food? And when you find time to fit exercise in? Sorry for so many question!
