A Dorothy Moment

Theme for January: Renewal and Resolution
Verse:
"His way is in the whirlwind and the storms."
Nahum 1:3c

Mom's Musing:
Mole skin is a must, duct tape is hiker's gold, and always- always stake down your tent. Three pieces of advice I recently gave to a family considering doing a rim-to-rim Grand Canyon hike. My hiking companions, and my daughter and I gained this wisdom the hard way.
Our blisters taught us about mole skin, a blown out shoe made duct tape a staple, and a whirlwind catching an unsecured tent made for Dorothy from Kansas moment.
Adversity is a good teacher. Its lessons become embedded in our mind. It causes us to do thing differently the next time...to be transformed.
Parenting Tip: Don't fear adversity in your kid's life. It will transform him onto a wiser and stronger individual. And he may even pass his knowledge along to someone else.
