Growing up Slowly in a Too-Fast World…

We are clinging to our children.  We want them to grow up slowly… 
We’re keeping them away from negative influences like popular music, television, kid-marketed movies, commercials, the Mall, kid-stores, and the list goes on. That’s right, our family doesn’t go to the Mall. We are choosing to stand apart so we can foster our family’s love of God, nature, and the simple things. We strive to build up their confidence, love of others, and true, soul-gripping sense of self through our faith in Jesus and their connection to family and nature.

    Yes, us too. You won't regret it. Not one bit. And you won't lose whole chunks of time to mindless and meaningless things. You'll get the full day. The chance to cherish. The potential to live a 'slowed down' life. Enjoy and keep it up!

    It's kind of nice to know someone else "doesn't do malls". Between the consumerism and the actual stores I wouldn't step foot in (let alone let a child), there just isn't a reason to be there. Still working on the media=free lifestyle, but we are getting there *smile*
