Five Minutes Alone and Small Steps, Day 12: Peace


As we reflect on theme of peace today with the conclusion of our Small Steps Tour, we thought we’d take a moment to also highlight some of the humorous ways moms grab five minutes.

Today, meet Rosie, who has four kids under age 4, homeschools, has twins, and laughs at toddler antics. Did I mention she also chronicles it online?


What I found, in the midst of what I would call the chaos of Rosie’s life, is a rather peaceful sort of life. And though that’s probably me looking in and seeing only the best, I would suggest that maybe all the rest of us could step back and embrace peace too. Maybe it’s a choice we make, an allowance of God’s grace. It’s something to think about, anyway.

Now, if you haven’t already join us at The Anchoress for some Small Steps. And don’t forget to enter the “Five Minutes Alone” contest that’s going on as part of our blog tour!
