BE AWESTRUCK: We talked about this earlier in the day a bit, didn’t we? We must remember to stop and notice the moments of awe in our lives. When we do this, we show our #children how to connect with something larger than ourselves including;
The life cycle
What is truly important
Whether we consider ourselves religious or not, these moments of awe give our lives meaning and purpose. We discuss it on this week’s #talktokids#podcast with my guest, @katherineozment who wrote the award-winning #book, Grace without God. We discuss how to raise #kids who feel a sense of #connection, #meaning and #purpose when they are raised without the framework of organized religion. (How to Talk to Kids about Meaning & Purpose in a Secular Age with Katherine Ozment - drrobynsilverman.com http://bit.ly/KOzment_PC)
As it turns out, about 25% of Americans are check off “none of the above” when asked for their religion. Of that 25%, about 40% are #millennials. So how do you raise young people who benefit from what religion has to offer (connection, rituals, meaning, higher purpose) when they are living in #secular age? ♀️
We discuss #tipsandscripts and even talk about how a #parent might answer life’s biggest questions ♂️ without scripture or religious stories to fall back on. A really interesting, thoughtful and balanced discussion-I think you’ll love it! .
Our children and our world offer so much awe- we just need to stop long enough to see it and take it in. Here’s to taking in the awe!

Remember you are not under any obligation to be who you were 5 minutes ago. The time and circumstances may never be perfect... If you are unhappy with something in your life.. Your only option... Is to change something...Doing nothing at all will definitely get you nowhere.
Follow your instincts. Be curious. Dream big. Love what you are doing. Enjoy learning. Keep a open heart and a strong spirit and always remember to have fun.
Long hair, don’t care.
(Short hair, totally care... which is why I continue to bust out the long hair.) Happiness = Feeling A-Ok No Matter What Kind Of Look You’re Rocking & Rolling With.
Oh the tales my daughters can tell about mommy (and her hair)... #thefabmom#internationaldayofhappiness
I dare you to spill a secret. Go!
