Welcome to my blog!  A few years ago, God started speaking to me about parenting with freedom in mind rather than control based in selfishness, and as I started recognizing and letting go of my controlling tendencies, I moaned to God, “But Gooood, freedom is so messy!  Literally and figuratively, look at my house!”  And God smiled and patted me on the head.  And that is how this blog was born.
