Why I'm Removing Facebook From My Mobile Device

Facebook is an incredible tool. It connects family members far and wide. It links friends, old and new. And it allows businesses to communicate with customers around the world. But as much as it has enabled me to connect with people online, it often disconnects me from those sitting right in front of me—my kids.I confess:  there are…See More

Tit for Tat: How I learned that being "right" doesn't necessarily make me righteous

I couldn’t believe what I was reading. As I scrolled down my Facebook news feed, there it was for all to see—a status update from yet another person, using their Facebook platform as a sort of cyber whipping post for those with whom they disagree. In this case it was a mother commenting on another mother’s parenting decisions.The comments cascading below the assault were from like-minded individuals, either throwing salt on the wound with their own colorful commentary or taking just long enough…See More

To everything there is a season

For lots of moms, sending their child to school for the first time is a sentimental and difficult milestone. Many even postpone the moment for as long as possible, dreading the hours they will be without their little one who is more than content cuddling up at home with mom. I’m just not that mom. And Jagger’s not that kid. As the youngest of four children, Jagger is a bit of a pack…See More

"Hi Dana: Juxt checked out your blog and wondered, whether your intention is a Christian book club (see book selection January). If so, unfortunately you'd have to take me off the list, since I'm an atheist. Cheers,  Stephanie"

"Awesome idea! I am currently on a "one book per month" challenge for 2013 and would love to participate in a book-club. I guess it would help me stay on target; and of course I'd love to hear other people's opinion on the books…"

Our Living Legacy

Call me naive, but I thought watching the Super Bowl game was a family affair. I never would have guessed that I’d actually have to stand guard, ready to shield my kids’ eyes from the filth we apparently now call commercials. And when the chosen entertainment to represent one of America’s favorite pastimes during the halftime show seductively slid her finger down her tongue and across her lower lip while dancing around in dominatrix garb, my heart broke as my my nine year-old daughter was left…See More
