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

Today, meet Jen. She has courage because not only does she homeschool and put glue in front of her tots, but she compiles huge posts about them.


Jen's a homeschooling mom of two girls, with a brand-new bundle of love from this summer. Her approach to life reminds me that we all need courage for different things, and we can grow in this area by tapping into the strengths and encouragement of others.

Now, if you haven't already join us at Franciscan Mom 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!
