Dear Ladies and Gentlemen: When we imagine a desert, what do we first think of? Usually sand, heat, Gila monsters, and cacti. Right here in Ahwatukee, each spring, a magical beauty unfolds right before our eyes. We witness the brilliant colors of blue, red, and pink against the backdrop of rocks and cacti. The beauty is so breathtaking that my spirits are lifted as I walk through the neigborhood enjoying the abundance of Arizona wildflowers in frontyards. Neighbors, gentle souls, allow the blue, red, and pink desert plants to mesmerize the onlooker. Thanks to the kind souls who invite us to enjoy nature's canvas in their front yards prior to the onset of the harsh summer months. Months awaiting us with trist, gray, and brown colors. Respectfully yours, Dr. Petra Schmid-Riggins

When kids know that we sincerely not only care for them but we sincerely care about things that are important to them motivation skyrockets! How can we show our sincere care about the things kids care about if we do not sincerely care about those things such as Dora the Explorer, Princesses, Spiderman, or fossils? Beginning with the end in mind just may be the key we need to unlock the door to this sincerity because our kids somehow know if and when we are sincere or not and insincerity does not motivate anyone. For example if we want our children to be motivated to behave well at a restaurant we may need to have a tea party with all their favorite characters the week before and model the desired behavior we want at the restaurant making the connection to how the characters behaved and how pleased we were with them. This seemingly silly or senseless time spend with our kids gives us a greater glimpse into their world and how they see the greater world we live in. This understanding and relationship building builds invites us into their world and gets us out of our world. When these two worlds unite the partnership is magical and children will be motivated to do many things that we may have thought were impossible for them. With this in mind if you have not done so already please take the time to Read the Five Love Languages by Gary Chapman . It is a life changing read that will help you keep your kids motivated. If you cannot commit to another book to read consider incorporating these five challenges into your kids life and get ready for greater parenting joy with a motivated child in tow…

There’s something very powerful, profound, and cathartic about the 40 days of Lent. Even at times in my life when I felt alienated from the body of Christ, wanted nothing to do with “organized” religion, or pushed faithful living to the edges of my being, Lent has always been important in my life. On Ash Wednesday (March 5 this year), the church calls us all to the observance of a holy Lent. It’s a strange and compelling invitation.
