My kiddos and I are taking extra precautions amidst all of the the pestilence floating around right now. This means no homeschool field trips and avoiding all unnecessary errands. My toddlers hate it, but it is for their good (since they routinely like to eat their hands and laugh to my horror). Here are some of the activities that we are enjoying during “hibernation” aka quarantine:

Last week, the “SBC this Week” podcast interviewed J.D. Greear, the current President of the Southern Baptist Convention. During the interview, he listed his goals for the convention of churches, one of which was to ‘get women off the sidelines‘. While President Greear sounds genuinely committed to helping women, this goal really bothered me as a biblically-faithful mama. What was he trying to say? When I am ministering in my home, am I not a good ‘partner in the Gospel’ and serving where God wants me to be? Is the work done outside the home the only Gospel work that matters?

When I quit doing yoga and resolved to remove all things Veda from my Christian life, I didn’t quite know what to do about my fitness routine. The vedic way of thought had infected a lot of fitness programs! However, after several months “clean”, I wanted to share my five best practices with you all. Hopefully, they will help you all too in honoring God with your “temple maintenance routines” 😉

This week, my SBC church tried to launch a Holy Yoga class and I almost lost it. Before last September, I had honestly never given much attention to Yoga’s roots. I just started doing it during high school as one form of exercise. The DVDs & mats were pretty inexpensive and it worked to tone my lower body (win-win, right). However, my husband and I were flabbergasted to discover in September just how nefarious yoga actually was.
