As Quoted in The Wall Street Journal


Remember this post? Well, it landed me in The Wall Street Journal! A reporter googled "teenagers and cell phones" and found my blog post, then called me to ask me some questions. Yet another thing to fall under the "I never thought it would happen in my lifetime" category-- being interviewed for the Wall Street Journal. The National Enquirer, perhaps, but not a publication that is known for being intelligent and respectable. Very cool.

Go here to read the article. It is actually a very good article full of information about handling teens and cell phones-- especially those equipped with internet capabilities. Yet another thing for a parent to be on the alert about in this technology-driven world.

You just never know where your blog posts will end up-- or where they will take you.

You're in a fabulous season of blessing, my friend. Even all the pain and inconvenience that went along with the foot injury held a great blessing! But I still don't envy you that part ;-)

Congrats!

How cool is that? I too am experiencing some amazing things that would not have happened if I had not started blogging, like being published in P31 magazine! It is truly amazing the avenues God takes us down isn't it? Congratulations!

First Disney, now the Wall Street Journal! For a stay-at-home mom with six kids and a broken foot you sure get around!

Congratulations, sweet friend. You're reaping the rewards of great writing, keeping your priorities straight, and helping soooo many others. Can't wait to see what God has in store for you next!
