Grown-Up Imposter Syndrome

I had this idea, growing up, that once I became an adult, got married, and had kids, I was finished with my personal growth and my task in life was just to live out adulthood, raising my children, teaching them what they needed to know, and taking care of things in my life… and that I would just know how to do all of these things because I was an adult- I was grown up!

You've Been Egged

Several years ago, I shared a service-oriented family night activity over on Jedi Craft Girl's blog. I've noticed that my "You've Been Egged" printable has been popular lately, so I thought I'd share that family night activity with you here on the blog today!  Jedi Craft Girl is posting the 8th year of her "Walk With Jesus" blog series this year, so be sure to check that out for some great new ideas, too!


You’ll need 12 plastic Eggs & the items needed to create this Easter countdown. You can find a list here as well. – Prepare some small slips of paper and something to write or draw with for each family member. – Have an empty box or bowl ready. – Print the handouts and the “You’ve Been Egged” note.
