Esther is known for giving her simple and faith-filled "yes" to God in a time of uncertainty. God used her willingness to rescue the Jews from their impending persecution, an answer to prayer! One woman, destined for such a time as this. 💫⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
For the times in our lives when God's plans are extraordinary, sometimes all he asks for is our simple and faith-filled yes, just like Esther gave. Yes to trusting, yes to gathering our faith and strength, and yes to remembering his goodness. How are you being stretched to give your yes?

In a season when it feels like our entire lives have shifted online, it's harder than ever to limit screen-time for our little ones. But making time and space to disconnect and unwind is a much-needed physical, mental, and emotional escape for kids. Here's a few ways to build a more unplugged lifestyle into your family home!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1. Make a plan and communicate it so your kids are aware of boundaries⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2. Gently guide your children into playing or participating in activities beyond their devices⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
3. Set a rhythm for time blocks or specific days that are "screen-free" so they know what to expect⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
4. Be present and willing to engage as much as possible⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
