Monday afternoon my Core Team and I met online for our weekly administrative meeting. We used the very official Zoom technology, at the official time of 12:30, for the official purpose of moving Back to Basics forward.

This is how it went.

Connie: [Sending off son to preschool, removing cookies from a cookie sheet before they harden, madly hitting keys on the laptop sitting on the counter.] “I can’t get on Zoom, the link’s not working, or ...

Know the magic bullet in connecting?

Over the weekend, a good friend texted me one morning with the news of a tragedy that happened to her good friend. Her request? “What can I tell her, how can I help her?”

I went into action, looking up resources, texting or calling friends who had experience in this particular arena, and sent the information as soon as possible.

Thankfully, I happened to have a scheduled neighbor visit that same morning. As I spoke with this neighbor, I suddenly remembered that she had some ...

Or possibly rework my wardrobe? Or change my idioms, my energy level, or even my hair color? Reason intruded and begged a moment’s time—if it’s been working so far, why overhaul it? But the other S ...

The Power of Partnered Prayers & People to Achieve Dreams

 At the beginning of summer I had the overzealous idea to productively use the early morning hours when my children were out cold. It made sense. Two hours of quiet time to get A TON DONE. Perfect. Ever had those kinds of thoughts? I prayed to know what should be my focus, made a list of projects and goals, and thought to myself, Bring it on. However, a short while later I got a distinct feeling-thought that I should, instead, “Rest.” What? Rest is for wimps. Rest is for later. Rest is, ...
