A Tip for Intentional Living {With Children}

When it comes to living with intention, we as parents need to carve out intentional time in our day to have meaningful conversations with our children. I think intentionality is often confused with an intense amount of time, but it doesn’t have to be.

At our house, we love to take it old school and write actual letters. You know, the kind that requires a stamp and a short walk to the mailbox, followed by participation from the US Postal Service and appropriate wait time for a response.

When I saw the cute designs...
