Advice for the younger Sara...

Always listen to your instincts- you’re going to be give a lot of advice...your momma instincts are the best. 

Ask for help AND then take the help.

Believe those who say they want to help, those I have encountered genuinely want to help me.

Children want to be understood, they have emotions!

Children aren’t broken...they are the best parts of you and your spouse, how we work with their uniqueness is important.

Your children aren’t good or bad, they make good decisions and bad decisions. Stop calling them a good or bad boy/girl. Praise their action(s).

Give yourself Grace...the guilt you’re holding onto will weigh you down.

Don’t be afraid to say NO!!

Let your children learn disappointment at home, before they get out into the world 

Not everything is okay AND that is okay. 

The road ahead is filled with potholes, bumps, curves and straight lines.

Reflections Art

Harrison made a film production, “The King Who Learned Kindness” for the PTA Reflections Art. Way to go Harrison on using your creativity and participating in your first contest. Harrison was so excited when the assistant principal briefly pulled him out of class on Tuesday morning to show Harrison his work displayed in the school lobby. Harrison’s the only student to make a film production so he proudly said, “I am the winner of my category since I am the only one in the category!!!” Oh how I love this boy of mine. God is so good.
