  1. Hey Tsh, just wanted to thank you for including a link to my latest post. I see that I’m in good company here, with the others that are listed as well!

  2. The 10 minutes idea from Kenneth Barish, Ph.D. really hits you. I try to listen to my child but usally I feel like I am listening/scolding… sort of a flustered mom’s method of parenting mulit-tasking.

    I am really going to slow down at the bedtime routine and make time for this healing period. I think family happiness can be stronger without letting even the little conflicts slip through our fingers and left to fester in the hurt parties heart.
    Now, with 10 minutes there is a method of healing. I reckon I like to be given directions.


  3. As always, you are too kind to me. Thank you so much for including me in this list!

  4. Stephanie says:

    If I am the Stephanie that won, when will you contact me. There were so many comments, I wasn’t sure if I am the only one that said Stephanie. Don’t want to miss this if it is me

  5. Hi! I believe that I’m the Marie that won a copy of Elizabeth Esther’s new book. Yay! I’m very excited to read it, but not sure how to go about receiving it. Thank you!

  6. I am thinking *hoping* I am the winning Heidi…will await instructions 🙂
