The Sweeter Side of Quarantine


The Sweeter Side of Quarantine

During this time of social distancing and isolation, we hope that parents and children are finding sweet ways to connect and engage intentionally as a family. We have seen many heart-warming social media posts and photos from our Southwood families detailing the ways in which we all are adapting to this “new” lifestyle - turning a challenge into a blessing. From scavenger hunts around the neighborhood to hiking trails together in search of beautiful waterfalls, we pray that you are seeing God’s creation in a new and hopeful way.

We also pray that you are able to pour into pockets of meaningful moments to remind your children (and yourself) how much they are loved and valued by their Heavenly Father especially in a time such as this … whether that is around the dinner table or while you’re hammering out the latest math problem. While this is no doubt a challenging time that may seem to last forever, we pray that it has also been a sweet reminder to you of the precious gifts God has given us in our children.

Indeed, time seems to have frozen as of late, but when we only have 936 weeks with our children from birth to high school graduation … and they typically spend most of that time at school with teachers and friends … these “never ending” days we are experiencing now with our kids are all too precious. We pray that God will bless this time with your family and that you will continue to see God’s goodness in every part.
