Good Choices

If you have been following my blog, you may have noticed that I love my family and tend to analyze things, so it should come as no surprise that I weigh every decision that could affect my family's well-being. With the wealth of options and information available in our society, it can be even more difficult to know which choices will most promote our health and safety. Today I'm excited to be featured as a guest blogger on Keeper of the Home, where I will be discussing some of my strategies for making Good Choices. Come check it out, and let me know what you think!

  1. I think that's a wonderful post! I don't always leave comments on places, but that post on "Keeper of the Home" was certainly worth coming over here and saying "great job!" You hit the nail right on the head: Balance. "Let your moderation be known unto all men."

    Thanks for sharing.

  2. Thank you so much for that post - I tend to over analyze similar things and found myself saying "mmhmm" a lot while I read (the "amen" of the young and soft spoken).
    But I have a question for you - what about vaccines? This is what I'm wrestling with the most right now and I'm having a hard time finding peace and making a decision - any help? Thanks, Ginger

  4. I came to visit here after seeing your guest post. AMAZING perspective. I love how you got to the root of every decision, something we should all strive to do. I'll certainly think twice before rushing to change something after receiving "urgent" information that it is bad, bad, bad! Thank you!

  5. Ginger, the choice to vaccinate, decline, or do selective/delayed vaccinations is a difficult one, especially with all of the conflicting information out there. If I were making the decision on my own, I would most likely refuse or at least delay some immunizations for my children (such as the chicken pox vaccine, which is not always effective). However, my husband has researched this subject quite a bit and is adamantly pro-vaccine, so we choose to vax. For us, the risk of getting a deadly disease and spreading it to others is cannot be compared to the fear of a possible side effect. I would encourage you to research each vaccine individually and pray about it, along with seeking your husband's input. While I understand the reasons both for and against vaccination, I think the decision will be different for each family, and must be based on trust in God rather than fear.
