Project Listen


This coming Tuesday, I’m shutting this machine off. I’m turning off the celly, and I’m pushing power on the tv. I’m missing my boys. 
I thought you might do it with me. Turn all the knobs down  —  and Listen. I’m going to have a day of conversation and play with my kids. Maybe you need to listen to God? Yes. So do I. I’ll do that, too, I hope.
I’m going to get a notepad and pencil and write down a few of the things I hear. I guess I have a report due next Wednesday. Often, I won’t read a book unless there’s a report due.
It is going to be hard for me. Isn’t that sad? Anybody in? You don’t have to have kids to need to listen more.
By the way, if you’re reading this, I absolutely love your socks off. Thanks for being my friend.

Also, no cleaning allowed! That's a rule I had to say out loud so I wouldn't break it.

Kara, let's do it Tuesday, and live to tell about it on Wednesday.

So good to see your face, Mindy!

Hi - I am a friend of Nicole's (roomies in college) and I have visited your blog a few times... very encouraging and refreshing! I love this idea to shut everythign off and have a listening/playing/attention-given-to-my-kids day. How easy do i crap away hours and hours on this computer and doing other stuff...... thanks for the challenge!
