Winter Running for Those Who Run Cold

I live in South Dakota, and I hate cold. I fell in love with running a few years ago, but I always stopped in the fall and didn't start up again until late spring. I don't like cold air touching my skin or breeze chilling my sweat. It is miserable to me. [...]

What if You’re Not Sad that Your Child Has Started School?

I’ve been waiting (longing) for this day since we made the decision. Both my boys are amazing, smart, wonderful people, and I love them both from the bottom of my heart. They are also very different people. Dylan was always very easygoing and happy. Forrest required much more of me; [...]

Multi-use Clothing: The Turkish Towel

Is college still a must for kids in today’s world? Or are we starting to drift away from it?

Honestly I think it still just depends. It depends on a lot of things. It always has, but one huge factor that has changed the game is the internet and the vast amount of information that can be extracted from it. From the internet you have access to purchase any [...]

What if you’re in your 30’s and haven’t found the right career?

Recently, a fellow group member asked this question: "Raise your hand if you're 30 (or in your 30s) and not yet in your right career, financially unstable, or generally feeling like you haven't found the right track yet for where you wanna go and who you're supposed to be? I felt [...]

4 Examples of the Power of the Breath

We all know how important breathing is. It's so important, it's an involuntary action of our bodies, carried out without having to think about it. Our body just does it, because if we stopped breathing long enough, we'd die. Since our body does it involuntarily, we often just forget about [...]

The “Weeds” in My Yard – A Response to Questions

Making Sustainability Cool

I tend go back and forth between wanting to fit in and wanting to not fit in. At first, it may sound odd that someone would want to be a misfit, but hear me out. You see, humans have always wanted to find a common bond with one another. We're social creatures; [...]

A School Food Forest
