I'm away at camp.
I spend three weeks working at my children's summer camp in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. In a departure from my regular life of coaching and momming, I spend my days as the Miller (as in grain and an actual water-powered mill) where I take children through a farm to table experience that involves lots of corn and lots of food. (It also involves dead fish, which is a story for another day.)
At camp, there is little cell service, spotty wifi, no TV or technology, lots of fresh air, baby animals, and hundreds of children. Even though I end each day covered in cornmeal and drop in bed exhausted at night, I am grateful I get to spend so much time each summer playing with children. They refresh my spirit.
As we prepare to start the Quiet the Noise Challenge, I invite you to consider what refreshes your spirit.
Where can you step outside your usual existence, even if only for a few minutes or a day? What can you do or where can you go to quiet the noise in your life for a while?
If you'd like a quick daily practice starting on August 5, our challenge is just the thing. You can join us here.
Anne and I look forward to seeing you there!
P.S. If you're excited for the challenge, please invite some friends to join by forwarding this email to them. They can sign up here.
