First, welcome – glad you’re here!  Be sure to lay stereotypes aside. Cultivating right manners and virtuous character, which is never a stuffy or arrogant endeavor, are necessary works that refine and define in very good ways. They begin, by God’s grace, in hearts and homes where love in the trifles grow the deepest roots. So please join us–take a fresh look at matters–and manners– that affect how we live.

About this bLOG

This blog is for people of ANY age who realize that living and loving well are tied together by faithful actions.

“Well” is defined, not in the sense of a rigid formal style dependent on possessions or perfection, but used to describe a joyful graciousness that pursues goodness, truth, and beauty in relationships and the everyday course of life.

God’s masterplan includes essential guidelines for happy living, and in ways that reflect His Character. What we do and teach our children matters. Feel welcome to blog along as we put our best foot forward.

It’s been my pleasure to map out meaningful etiquette by which children (and we adults) can better learn how to act and speak. This ability doesn’t appear magically–it is learned!
