    Hello Friend ~

    If you need to email me, you are welcome to do so here, but this seems so…public. If you are wanting to reach me in a more private format, please feel free to email me at stromata9 at gmail dot com. I will happily respond. (Please do be patient, though, because we’ve been really busy recently.)

    Rest –even while hs-ing.
    Yes, Dawn… this is good. Just call me Martha (no, I do not think you are a LOOP! — or at least not a Loop much different from me 🙂 )

    Schedule vs. Routine.
    I see your point about legalism or the Schedule becoming Master instead of tool. Personally, I think I have to make a schedule just to see if all the pieces of my puzzle will even fit on paper — Follow me? {at my house the proverbial schedule of the month/whatever gets hung on the wall… a child or two might try to follow it until they learn that ‘breakfast at 7:30’ doesn’t happen very often… 😦 } Yes, yes: lack of discipline for Mom too…

    And, okay, you brought up the child discipline by Grace (as opposed to the Rod?) Would you expand on this, please? [what DO you do/say that has increased obedience??]


  3. I’m wondering about the grace-based parenting, too.

    Melanie asked about *increased obedience*~but I’m starting to wonder…

    Is that a goal, or is that the fruit of some *other* goal in my Mommying?

    Can we talk about prayer journals? I’ve never been successful at it. Gak. I want it to be perfect and you know how well that works out.

    Grace based parenting and obedience….plus prayer journals. (Oh whimsy, dear, if you could see mine!) 😆 Got it!

  6. Tiffany says:

    Yes, yes! More on grace based discipline please. I’d like to skip the hamburger years if at all possible and learning from other’s wisdom seems like a good step in the right direction.

    I’d love as well to hear about what a typical clark day looks like. It is so encouraging/helpful/educational to me to see how other families do the basic day to day stuff.

    Just wanted to let you know that I had copied your posts on “Ten tips for entering and exiting the holidays in one peace” from last year and printed it off for my Bible. I read it over this morning and was encouraged anew by your thoughts. 🙂

  8. javadawn says:

    Hey, Thanks! 🙂

    Maybe I’ll re-link it – any thoughts?


  9. Dawn, this is Pam Clark. Is this you?? Met at Rhea’s Days.

    Pam, yes it is, my dear! How ARE you?!!

  11. My dear sweet friend. Linda Joseph gave me this blog address a while back. I popped over and then the url got lost in the shuffle of my computer’s black hole. I was so excited to come across the email she had sent me (see, never deleting things can be a blessing) so that I could find you again.

    Your writing is wonderful. I was gettting lost in time reading through your posts yesterday. I need to come back and read them all soon.

    I don’t have your email address, so could you pop me a quick note at so I can get you in my address book. I will then catch you up on our lives since we met. I’d love to hear all that is going on and has transpired since the conference. Give your wonderful husband a hug and a hello from me. Wish we lived closer, I’d love to have you all as my neighbors.

    You just want me to send you chocolate, don’t you? 😛

    I’ll drop you a note tonight – it will be incoherent and possibly truly pathetic, but I will do it none the less 😀
