Remembering Dr. Purvis

Today marks one year since Dr. Karyn Purvis went home to be with Jesus. It’s hard to believe, and yet there is hardly a day that goes by that her wisdom, wit, and grace does not come to mind and enter into our parenting.

We miss Karyn, but we are grateful that God gifted her as he did, and that she used those gifts to bless many, including our family.  So today, as we remember Dr. Purvis, let’s be a little more compassionate and grace-filled, quicker to laugh and slower to react in anger, willing to forgive (ourselves and our kids, and always ready to ‘try it again.’  In other words, let’s re-commit to be more connected — just like Karyn taught us.
