I made an extra and will be giving it away to one of you. &#0160;Just leave a comment between now and Saturday at midnight. &#0160;Bonus entry points for following me &#0160;on:</p>\r\n<p><a href=\"https://www.facebook.com/pages/mamaroots/194128588304\" target=\"_blank\">Facebook</a></p>\r\n<p><a href=\"https://twitter.com/mama_roots\" target=\"_blank\">Twitter</a></p>\r\n<p><a href=\"http://instagram.com/mamaroots\" target=\"_blank\">Instagram</a></p>\r\n<p>Good luck and keep on crafting!</p>",

I don&#39;t remember the book, but I do remember the light bulb moment as I decided that my life needed more benches. Yes, yes...benches. I suppose the appeal is a bit like my approach to knitting, particularly with very, very little ones. I always scattered projects throughout the house, in every room, so that should I, by some chance, find myself with a peaceful moment of occupied children, I could pick up the needles and knit without disturbing the peace. So maybe the same could be said for benches? If there were benches at every corner, perhaps I could find more opportunity to sit a spell. To stop and admire what&#39;s planted around me. To connect with those beside me. Surely that&#39;s something we could all use a little more of.</p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: justify;\">So when this garden season began, I was quite committed to fulfilling this bench dream. I started at Brimfield where I found many adorable benches but nothing that could possibly withstand the abuse of a Maine winter or my children (the latter being slightly more worrisome). I scoured the garden stores for benches, with no luck of finding on that was either made in the United States or within my budget. Once those avenues didn&#39;t produce the sought after benches, there was only one thing left to do, of course. Do it myself. And as I said last week, this really was the perfect project for me to try on my own. And now, after some sanding and painting (Benjamin Moore&#39;s Blue Lake), they&#39;re in place. In three different spots throughout the yard and pastures, each at the ready for some sitting.</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://www.soulemama.com/.a/6a00d8341c4ea853ef01b8d06123db970c-pi\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"Bench-1\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8341c4ea853ef01b8d06123db970c img-responsive\" src=\"http://www.soulemama.com/.a/6a00d8341c4ea853ef01b8d06123db970c-700wi\" style=\"width: 700px;\" title=\"Bench-1\" /></a></p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://www.soulemama.com/.a/6a00d8341c4ea853ef01a73e0d340b970d-pi\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"Bench-1-2\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8341c4ea853ef01a73e0d340b970d img-responsive\" src=\"http://www.soulemama.com/.a/6a00d8341c4ea853ef01a73e0d340b970d-700wi\" style=\"width: 700px;\" title=\"Bench-1-2\" /></a></p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://www.soulemama.com/.a/6a00d8341c4ea853ef01b8d06123f1970c-pi\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"Bench-1-3\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8341c4ea853ef01b8d06123f1970c img-responsive\" src=\"http://www.soulemama.com/.a/6a00d8341c4ea853ef01b8d06123f1970c-700wi\" style=\"width: 700px;\" title=\"Bench-1-3\" /></a></p>\r\n<p>In the front garden, where one can watch all the comings and goings, and play with horses.</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://www.soulemama.com/.a/6a00d8341c4ea853ef01a73e0d3424970d-pi\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"Bench-1-4\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8341c4ea853ef01a73e0d3424970d img-responsive\" src=\"http://www.soulemama.com/.a/6a00d8341c4ea853ef01a73e0d3424970d-700wi\" style=\"width: 700px;\" title=\"Bench-1-4\" /></a></p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://www.soulemama.com/.a/6a00d8341c4ea853ef01a73e0d342b970d-pi\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"Bench-1-5\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8341c4ea853ef01a73e0d342b970d img-responsive\" src=\"http://www.soulemama.com/.a/6a00d8341c4ea853ef01a73e0d342b970d-700wi\" style=\"width: 700px;\" title=\"Bench-1-5\" /></a></p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://www.soulemama.com/.a/6a00d8341c4ea853ef01b7c6d74bc1970b-pi\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"Bench-1-6\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8341c4ea853ef01b7c6d74bc1970b img-responsive\" src=\"http://www.soulemama.com/.a/6a00d8341c4ea853ef01b7c6d74bc1970b-700wi\" style=\"width: 700px;\" title=\"Bench-1-6\" /></a></p>\r\n<p>In the pond pasture, where one can stand and shout and recite a monologue, in practice for auditions.</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://www.soulemama.com/.a/6a00d8341c4ea853ef01b8d0612416970c-pi\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"Bench-1-7\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8341c4ea853ef01b8d0612416970c img-responsive\" src=\"http://www.soulemama.com/.a/6a00d8341c4ea853ef01b8d0612416970c-700wi\" style=\"width: 700px;\" title=\"Bench-1-7\" /></a></p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://www.soulemama.com/.a/6a00d8341c4ea853ef01b7c6d74bf0970b-pi\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"Bench-1-8\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8341c4ea853ef01b7c6d74bf0970b img-responsive\" src=\"http://www.soulemama.com/.a/6a00d8341c4ea853ef01b7c6d74bf0970b-700wi\" style=\"width: 700px;\" title=\"Bench-1-8\" /></a></p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://www.soulemama.com/.a/6a00d8341c4ea853ef01b7c6d74bfb970b-pi\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"Bench-1-9\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8341c4ea853ef01b7c6d74bfb970b img-responsive\" src=\"http://www.soulemama.com/.a/6a00d8341c4ea853ef01b7c6d74bfb970b-700wi\" style=\"width: 700px;\" title=\"Bench-1-9\" /></a></p>\r\n<p>And in the back yard, where one can read and daydream and talk to the goats.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>Each time I pass one of these benches, they call to me - come, have a seat.

I know of many great achievers who aren’t anything like the type of person I want to be.

That you struggle, as I do, with at least one area of discipline.</strong></p>\r\n<p><em>Please note that your struggle does not make you less worthy, less desirable, less valuable or less important than those who are &quot;natural&quot; achievers. It makes you human, vulnerable and empathic.</em></p>\r\n<p><strong>2. That you are kind, loving and spiritually seeking.</strong></p>\r\n<p><em>Your goals are positive, life affirming and spiritual in the sense that they are based on good values. </em></p>\r\n<p><em>Examples: a goal of being a better friend by extending an invitation to coffee once a month is based on a values of love and kindness. A goal of preparing for a promotion at work is based on the value of providing for your family.</em></p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>My prayer in recent days has been, &quot;God, help me to be the kind of person <em>You</em> want me to be. Help me be a reflection of Your love and grace in all things.&quot; I think that is a good starting place for all of us, especially as we think about setting goals. And yes, I think that walking 30 minutes, 3 days a week, is something that reflects His grace and goodness.</p>\r\n<p>Ultimately, I believe that becoming that best version of yourself is <strong><em>by His power and for His glory.&#0160;</em></strong>Our faith has never been about simply <em>doing</em> the right things - Jesus had a lot to say about those who looked perfect on the outside - but it&#39;s about <em>being</em> right on the inside.</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p><strong>Questions of the Day:</strong> Do you mistake achievement for character? When you set goals, do you think about the process of <em>being</em> the type of person who can reach them? We&#39;ve been talking about setting small, achievable goals...how do they reflect the kind of character you want to develop in the process?</p>\r\n<p>PS You can find the previous posts in this mini-series <a href=\"http://www.homesanctuary.com/rachelanne/2014/08/how-to-be-the-person-you-want-to-be.html\" target=\"_blank\">here</a> and <a href=\"http://www.homesanctuary.com/rachelanne/2014/08/how-to-set-goals-so-you-can-become-the-person-you-want-to-be.html\" target=\"_blank\">here</a>.</p>",

I see how small steps, taken time after time, made me feel confident enough to paint horses - something I&#39;d never done before.</em></p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://www.homesanctuary.com/.a/6a00d8341cc30c53ef01b8d0621e7f970c-pi\"><img alt=\"Farm mural\" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8341cc30c53ef01b8d0621e7f970c image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://www.homesanctuary.com/.a/6a00d8341cc30c53ef01b8d0621e7f970c-800wi\" style=\"display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"Farm mural\" /></a></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: center;\">&#0160;</p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: center;\">Even the chicken was fun to paint.</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://www.homesanctuary.com/.a/6a00d8341cc30c53ef01b7c6d84a5e970b-pi\"><img alt=\"farm mural\" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8341cc30c53ef01b7c6d84a5e970b image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://www.homesanctuary.com/.a/6a00d8341cc30c53ef01b7c6d84a5e970b-800wi\" style=\"display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"farm mural\" /></a></p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://www.homesanctuary.com/.a/6a00d8341cc30c53ef01b7c6d84a9f970b-pi\"><img alt=\"farm mural\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8341cc30c53ef01b7c6d84a9f970b img-responsive\" src=\"http://www.homesanctuary.com/.a/6a00d8341cc30c53ef01b7c6d84a9f970b-500wi\" style=\"display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"farm mural\" /></a></p>\r\n<div>&#0160;</div>\r\n<p>So when I talk about setting small personal goals, I think I&#39;m already assuming a couple of things about you:</p>\r\n<p><strong>1. That you struggle, as I do, with at least one area of discipline.</strong></p>\r\n<p><em>Please note that your struggle does not make you less worthy, less desirable, less valuable or less important than those who are &quot;natural&quot; achievers. It makes you human, vulnerable and empathic.</em></p>\r\n<p><strong>2. That you are kind, loving and spiritually seeking.</strong></p>\r\n<p><em>Your goals are positive, life affirming and spiritual in the sense that they are based on good values. </em></p>\r\n<p><em>Examples: a goal of being a better friend by extending an invitation to coffee once a month is based on a values of love and kindness. A goal of preparing for a promotion at work is based on the value of providing for your family.</em></p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>My prayer in recent days has been, &quot;God, help me to be the kind of person <em>You</em> want me to be. Help me be a reflection of Your love and grace in all things.&quot; I think that is a good starting place for all of us, especially as we think about setting goals. And yes, I think that walking 30 minutes, 3 days a week, is something that reflects His grace and goodness.</p>\r\n<p>Ultimately, I believe that becoming that best version of yourself is <strong><em>by His power and for His glory.&#0160;</em></strong>Our faith has never been about simply <em>doing</em> the right things - Jesus had a lot to say about those who looked perfect on the outside - but it&#39;s about <em>being</em> right on the inside.</p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p><strong>Questions of the Day:</strong> Do you mistake achievement for character? When you set goals, do you think about the process of <em>being</em> the type of person who can reach them? We&#39;ve been talking about setting small, achievable goals...how do they reflect the kind of character you want to develop in the process?</p>\r\n<p>PS You can find the previous posts in this mini-series <a href=\"http://www.homesanctuary.com/rachelanne/2014/08/how-to-be-the-person-you-want-to-be.html\" target=\"_blank\">here</a> and <a href=\"http://www.homesanctuary.com/rachelanne/2014/08/how-to-set-goals-so-you-can-become-the-person-you-want-to-be.html\" target=\"_blank\">here</a>.</p>",

I posted on facebook today the following:</span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: center;\"><span style=\"color: #bf5f00; font-size: 12pt;\"><em>&quot;Today is the first day of school...a.k.a &quot;Momma&#39;s New Year that feels more like New Year&#39;s Day than the actual New Year&#39;s Day&quot;.&#0160;</em></span><br /><span style=\"color: #bf5f00; font-size: 12pt;\"><em>This time brings intense urges to purge my home of unnecessary items, overhaul my office/desk area, rid myself of five million bits and pieces in my studio and the cobwebs they are hiding, set a hundred thousand goals to be accomplished by my next birthday, schedule in crazy fun vacations and plenty of lucrative opportunities in 2015, meditate for 6&#0160;hours a day to keep on track, and once and for all devote myself to re-learning Spanish + practicing the piano &amp; guitar + learning cello + writing a book + weekly menu planning + growing a winter garden + read 5 mind-expanding books a week + finding my abs + falling in love all over again with waking up early every day to a new adventure.</em></span><br /><span style=\"color: #bf5f00; font-size: 12pt;\"><em>I&#39;m no over achiever but I think it might be smart just to start with doing a batch of laundry from start to finish today. Yes...me thinks this is a very good place to start.&quot;</em></span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: center;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12pt;\">It&#39;s true. This time of year awakens that part of me that is brought to life by new beginnings. I don&#39;t find it odd that my desire to dive into those new beginnings includes the urge to make room for them in any and all areas of life.</span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: center;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12pt;\">Incidentally, I actually did get a load of laundry done from start to finish - all put away and everything. I consider this worthy of a mini celebration.</span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: center;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12pt;\">As I work to resolve some slightly inconvenient Etsy issues I&#39;m having, I&#39;m offering a few paintings directly from my blog here.

Though I meant to list them before I left town, I&#39;m just getting around to sharing them now.

I posted on facebook today the following:</span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: center;\"><span style=\"color: #bf5f00; font-size: 12pt;\"><em>&quot;Today is the first day of school...a.k.a &quot;Momma&#39;s New Year that feels more like New Year&#39;s Day than the actual New Year&#39;s Day&quot;.&#0160;</em></span><br /><span style=\"color: #bf5f00; font-size: 12pt;\"><em>This time brings intense urges to purge my home of unnecessary items, overhaul my office/desk area, rid myself of five million bits and pieces in my studio and the cobwebs they are hiding, set a hundred thousand goals to be accomplished by my next birthday, schedule in crazy fun vacations and plenty of lucrative opportunities in 2015, meditate for 6&#0160;hours a day to keep on track, and once and for all devote myself to re-learning Spanish + practicing the piano &amp; guitar + learning cello + writing a book + weekly menu planning + growing a winter garden + read 5 mind-expanding books a week + finding my abs + falling in love all over again with waking up early every day to a new adventure.</em></span><br /><span style=\"color: #bf5f00; font-size: 12pt;\"><em>I&#39;m no over achiever but I think it might be smart just to start with doing a batch of laundry from start to finish today. Yes...me thinks this is a very good place to start.&quot;</em></span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: center;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12pt;\">It&#39;s true. This time of year awakens that part of me that is brought to life by new beginnings. I don&#39;t find it odd that my desire to dive into those new beginnings includes the urge to make room for them in any and all areas of life.</span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: center;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12pt;\">Incidentally, I actually did get a load of laundry done from start to finish - all put away and everything. I consider this worthy of a mini celebration.</span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: center;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12pt;\">As I work to resolve some slightly inconvenient Etsy issues I&#39;m having, I&#39;m offering a few paintings directly from my blog here. I&#39;ve popped up here today to show them to you as well as some jewelry I recently listed on <a href=\"https://www.etsy.com/shop/dabbler?ref=hdr_shop_menu\" target=\"_self\">my etsy shop here</a>.</span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: center;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12pt;\">Sweet little pieces like this <a href=\"https://www.etsy.com/listing/200060431/on-the-slow-boat-to-bliss?ref=shop_home_active_4\" target=\"_self\">porcelain boat necklace</a></span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: center;\"><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://stephanielee.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8353dd52369e201b7c6d82a16970b-pi\"><img alt=\"Boat necklace 2\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8353dd52369e201b7c6d82a16970b img-responsive\" src=\"http://stephanielee.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8353dd52369e201b7c6d82a16970b-350wi\" style=\"width: 350px; display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"Boat necklace 2\" /></a>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: center;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12pt;\">or this <a href=\"https://www.etsy.com/listing/200051489/leather-lace-bangle?ref=shop_home_active_9\" target=\"_self\">leather and lace cuff</a> that reminds me of a well loved arm chair perched next to a leaded glass window.</span><br /> <a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://stephanielee.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8353dd52369e201b7c6d82a69970b-pi\"><img alt=\"Leather cuff 2\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8353dd52369e201b7c6d82a69970b img-responsive\" src=\"http://stephanielee.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8353dd52369e201b7c6d82a69970b-350wi\" style=\"width: 350px; display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"Leather cuff 2\" /></a><br /><br /></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: center;\"><span style=\"font-size: 12pt;\">And if you ask me, one can NEVER have too many simple, elegant pearl necklaces to wear alone or layered with other necklaces. I like mine slightly left of traditional - hence the varied sizes and undulating color variations.

Though I meant to list them before I left town, I&#39;m just getting around to sharing them now. All paintings are ready to ship in 1 business day via UPS Ground (for shipping out of the US, please email me for details at stephanieleestudios at gmail dot com.

I think we are SO ready for our new series, &quot;The Whole Christian Thing.&quot; In the course of our spiritual spa, we&#39;ve uncovered what we long for, yet as we move into another academic year and all its pressures and anxieties, we&#39;ve also discovered yet again that simply longing is not as easy as it sounds. As much as the passages about becoming childlike in our faith inspire us, we are no longer three years old. Life can no longer be pretended into whatever we want it to be. <br /></span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: georgia,palatino; font-size: 15pt;\">It&#39;s time to put some skin on it. Find out where it&#39;s concrete. Determine how -- or even if -- the practice of our faith is really getting us any closer to that. When I asked which of three series you&#39;d like to pursue, the response was overwhelmingly for this look at how to go deeper than &quot;Jesus is my boyfriend&quot; worship songs and youth group pizza parties, into a relationship with Christ that informs your life where you are right now. I&#39;ve always wanted to do this as a basis for a book, developing it here on line with you.<br /></span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: georgia,palatino; font-size: 15pt;\">You&#39;re obviously craving the real stuff of being a Christian. It&#39;s clear you want to know where the path is to becoming the generation who genuinely lives the Jesus Way. So -- what I&#39;d like to do is explore the Whole Christian Thing together with a goal of not only bringing us closer to that &quot;real stuff&quot; in our lives but creating an E-book, one that other teen girls can use (not just read). Although I&#39;ll be the author, this project will be what&#39;s called &quot;socilaly sourced.&quot; We&#39;ll develop it here on the blog so that everyone benefits: you AND future readers.&#0160;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: georgia,palatino; font-size: 15pt;\">The plan is for us to spend from now until the end of January deeply studying and discussing the seven layers you probably need to peel off and deal with in order to get to that &quot;real stuff.&quot; I&#39;ll do some teaching, yet a great percentage of what we uncover will come from you. As individuals you can contribute as much or as little as you want, as long as &quot;as little as you want&quot; doesn&#39;t mean &quot;not at all.&quot; It could be that some of the issues will resonate with you more than others and that&#39;s fine. Comments don&#39;t have to be little epistles -- although they CAN be! If there are stretches where you don&#39;t have time to comment, just let us know occasionally that you&#39;re still with us -- and keep a list of notes in your journal for things you want to talk about when you do get a break and can catch us up.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: georgia,palatino; font-size: 15pt;\">In February I&#39;ll actually start writing the book and I&#39;ll share chunks of it with you as I complete it. That will probably take until the end of the school year. During that time you&#39;ll be able to:</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: georgia,palatino; font-size: 15pt;\">&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160; * contribute poetry, quotes or one-liners for the margins or chapter headings</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: georgia,palatino; font-size: 15pt;\">&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160; * participate in the &quot;bidding&quot; for cover art -- it needs to be original from our blog community, dont&#39; you think?&#0160; <br /></span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: georgia,palatino; font-size: 15pt;\">&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160; * make suggestions about the writing -- does it sound like teen-speak? am I getting it right? have you thought of other things that should be included? </span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: georgia,palatino; font-size: 15pt;\">Some of this we may do in live blog get-togethers -- sort of like the old blog party thing.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: georgia,palatino; font-size: 15pt;\">I&#39;ve wanted to do this for a long time and the timing was never right. I think with this group, right now, it is. So, if you want to comment between now and Thursday, please tell us:<br /></span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: georgia,palatino; font-size: 15pt;\">&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;<span style=\"color: #c00000;\"> * Are you in?</span></span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: georgia,palatino; font-size: 15pt; color: #c00000;\">&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160; * Are there any other teen girls you&#39;d like to bring to the table, invite to join the blog community? Are you willing to extend that invitation?</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: georgia,palatino; font-size: 15pt; color: #c00000;\">&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160; * What questions you have about the project?&#0160;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: georgia,palatino; font-size: 15pt;\">&#0160; We&#39;ve always been about the personal part of our faith here on IRL, and we&#39;ll continue to be during this project. I know it will happen naturally, and I think what <span style=\"color: #6000bf;\">BULLETSOUL</span> said frames it well:</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: georgia,palatino; font-size: 15pt;\">&quot;I still don&#39;t know who I am but I&#39;m getting a better idea of Jesus is.&quot;<br /></span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: georgia,palatino; font-size: 15pt;\">&#0160;&#0160;&#0160; We&#39;re going to find out that they&#39;re one and the same.<br /></span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: georgia,palatino; font-size: 15pt;\">Let us hear from you. I&#39;m chewing on that one nail I always gnaw when I&#39;m jazzed about a new venture. Comment before I get it down to the nub!</span></p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: georgia,palatino; font-size: 15pt;\">Blessings,</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: georgia,palatino; font-size: 15pt;\">Nancy Rue</span></p>",

I think we are SO ready for our new series, &quot;The Whole Christian Thing.&quot; In the course of our spiritual spa, we&#39;ve uncovered what we long for, yet as we move into another academic year and all its pressures and anxieties, we&#39;ve also discovered yet again that simply longing is not as easy as it sounds. As much as the passages about becoming childlike in our faith inspire us, we are no longer three years old. Life can no longer be pretended into whatever we want it to be. <br /></span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: georgia,palatino; font-size: 15pt;\">It&#39;s time to put some skin on it. Find out where it&#39;s concrete. Determine how -- or even if -- the practice of our faith is really getting us any closer to that. When I asked which of three series you&#39;d like to pursue, the response was overwhelmingly for this look at how to go deeper than &quot;Jesus is my boyfriend&quot; worship songs and youth group pizza parties, into a relationship with Christ that informs your life where you are right now. I&#39;ve always wanted to do this as a basis for a book, developing it here on line with you.<br /></span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: georgia,palatino; font-size: 15pt;\">You&#39;re obviously craving the real stuff of being a Christian. It&#39;s clear you want to know where the path is to becoming the generation who genuinely lives the Jesus Way. So -- what I&#39;d like to do is explore the Whole Christian Thing together with a goal of not only bringing us closer to that &quot;real stuff&quot; in our lives but creating an E-book, one that other teen girls can use (not just read). Although I&#39;ll be the author, this project will be what&#39;s called &quot;socilaly sourced.&quot; We&#39;ll develop it here on the blog so that everyone benefits: you AND future readers.&#0160;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: georgia,palatino; font-size: 15pt;\">The plan is for us to spend from now until the end of January deeply studying and discussing the seven layers you probably need to peel off and deal with in order to get to that &quot;real stuff.&quot; I&#39;ll do some teaching, yet a great percentage of what we uncover will come from you. As individuals you can contribute as much or as little as you want, as long as &quot;as little as you want&quot; doesn&#39;t mean &quot;not at all.&quot; It could be that some of the issues will resonate with you more than others and that&#39;s fine. Comments don&#39;t have to be little epistles -- although they CAN be! If there are stretches where you don&#39;t have time to comment, just let us know occasionally that you&#39;re still with us -- and keep a list of notes in your journal for things you want to talk about when you do get a break and can catch us up.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: georgia,palatino; font-size: 15pt;\">In February I&#39;ll actually start writing the book and I&#39;ll share chunks of it with you as I complete it. That will probably take until the end of the school year. During that time you&#39;ll be able to:</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: georgia,palatino; font-size: 15pt;\">&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160; * contribute poetry, quotes or one-liners for the margins or chapter headings</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: georgia,palatino; font-size: 15pt;\">&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160; * participate in the &quot;bidding&quot; for cover art -- it needs to be original from our blog community, dont&#39; you think?&#0160; <br /></span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: georgia,palatino; font-size: 15pt;\">&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160; * make suggestions about the writing -- does it sound like teen-speak? am I getting it right? have you thought of other things that should be included? </span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: georgia,palatino; font-size: 15pt;\">Some of this we may do in live blog get-togethers -- sort of like the old blog party thing.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: georgia,palatino; font-size: 15pt;\">I&#39;ve wanted to do this for a long time and the timing was never right. I think with this group, right now, it is. So, if you want to comment between now and Thursday, please tell us:<br /></span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: georgia,palatino; font-size: 15pt;\">&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;<span style=\"color: #c00000;\"> * Are you in?</span></span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: georgia,palatino; font-size: 15pt; color: #c00000;\">&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160;&#0160; * Are there any other teen girls you&#39;d like to bring to the table, invite to join the blog community?

I know it will happen naturally, and I think what <span style=\"color: #6000bf;\">BULLETSOUL</span> said frames it well:</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: georgia,palatino; font-size: 15pt;\">&quot;I still don&#39;t know who I am but I&#39;m getting a better idea of Jesus is.&quot;<br /></span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: georgia,palatino; font-size: 15pt;\">&#0160;&#0160;&#0160; We&#39;re going to find out that they&#39;re one and the same.<br /></span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: georgia,palatino; font-size: 15pt;\">Let us hear from you. I&#39;m chewing on that one nail I always gnaw when I&#39;m jazzed about a new venture. Comment before I get it down to the nub!</span></p>\r\n<p>&#0160;</p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: georgia,palatino; font-size: 15pt;\">Blessings,</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: georgia,palatino; font-size: 15pt;\">Nancy Rue</span></p>",
