One of the first things we’re taught as kids in school is to patiently wait our turn.

Last week my husband, Nate, was away with our church’s high school mission trip. I took the week off because last year I had grand plans for the week he was gone, but very little actually was accomplished. I decided I’d lean into doing nothing while Nate was gone last week and planned only six things (one of which … <a href="http://oneinsightcloser.com/blog/tough-week">Continue reading <span>Preventing a really tough week</span></a>
