Writing Me: “In This Family” Wrap-Up

We were delighted and inspired by the unique posts crafted in the “In This Family” format (inspired by several pieces on Pinterest, and Emerging Mummy’s fabulous staircase).  Grab a cup of coffee and enjoy browsing through the list of everyone who linked up with their “In This Family” posts!


“In this Family we see one another through faith-colored glasses | then inspire with hug-words |and love-verbs.” -Stacey/ Musings in Simplicity


“In this family we inadvertently hurt others but we always (eventually) forgive | In this family we are always safe.”  -May/ Achieving Clarity

“We love to sing | Taylor Swift and Def Leppard; | Our own crazy made-up songs; | And Jesus Loves Me.”  -Ginny/ Lemon Drop Pie

“We are building a house where… peace and justice meet | the outcast & the stranger bear the image of God’s face…”  -Lindy/ Who I Am (…& The Full Plate Crochet)

“… you might find | firefighter pants and a rainbow-haired wig and a sparkly tutu | on the coffee table | and you surely will find picture books everywhere | except, perhaps, on shelves.”  -Robin/ The Not-Ever-Still Life

“In this family we do rough. | Rough housing, rough playing, rough paths walked. | We do grace. | We do forgiveness | We do LOVE.”  -Melissa/ Peanut Butter in my Hair

“Our laughter is the size of the moon, | just as bright, and it fills the world with more light.”  -Alita/ Alita Jewel’s Treasures

“We do loud a little better than whispers.  We love hard when it’s hard to love.  We celebrate what’s right instead of only seeing what’s wrong.” -Hyacynth/ Undercover Mother

“We’re pros at free-throwing forks and spoons straight from the dishwasher into the silverware drawer.  We excel at selecting the perfect pair of superhero underwear to express how we’re feeling today.”  – Lenae/ {just} Lenae

“We swell and pulse with glowing light until we become more full and promising than the sum of our broken parts.”  -Sarah/ This Heavenly Life
