    We love the Marvel movies, but only with our older kids.  It was our quarantine tradition.  We’d put the littles to bed and on most Fridays we would watch one of the Marvel movies. So much fun!

    Yes! I totally relate to Claire and Juliet.  A somewhat flexible structure has been huge for us and I have been getting up early for prayer time before the rest of the house gets moving.  It’s crazy how much I notice if I oversleep and miss it! Also, family walks have been total sanity savers for us!

    I don’t know if we have it all figured out, and our life is definitely a work in progress. We tend to change our approach as the season of our family changes.  However, one thing that we have kept consistent since our oldest was just a baby is that we use nap times on Saturday as our time.  It’s our own mini date time at home.  We put the nappers down and those who are old enough to avoid nap time find a quiet activity.  Then, Rob and I sit on the couch or porch and we just spend time with each other.  Saturday afternoons are our time to dream and reconnect.  16 years in and that is still really important and one of our favorite times.

    Wow! I think this is a really great topic and I 100% believe in spiritual warfare.  We experienced it as we were going through Marian Consecration.  I was astounded at all the obstacles and challenges our health, family, and relationship faced during that time. I wish I had great tools to share.  In reality, we just put our heads down and plowed through. I think recognizing it, giving it a name, and rejecting it can be powerful. In a sense, it gives us a common enemy rather than each other.  I don’t know, though. I’d love to hear other thoughts…

    As my husband and I watched this, we paused it to discuss several points.  We also liked the reflection questions so that the conversation continued even further.  I continue to mull this idea of parenting making us more fully who we are meant to be, shaping us, molding us, and God willing, sanctifying us.  I recently began praying a prayer to love Jesus more.  The first thing I noticed was a greater love and tenderness for my children.  I love how God uses absolutely everything accomplish so much.  It is truly awesome.

    My husband really liked that this was not a “10 step process to parenting” type of talk.  He liked the theology.  We both did. 🙂  We look forward to really diving into this more with the community, while also seeing how this looks practically in the day to day.
