Seeing the Everyday


Seeing the Everyday, a magazine produced and edited by my childhood friend Daryl Smith, shows how small every routine and tasks are the glue holding our families together.  

By lovingly working with our children, having family meals, pray and patiently teaching them we shape the moments that develop their character.
What an interesting idea?  To look at the small things we do in our homes with our families and focus an entire work on pointing out the good that comes from such small things.  
As a mother, this motivates me to keep up my traditions, be more loving when I’m teaching and invite my children to participate with me in every day cooking tasks.
I think it’s easy as an artist to think big and as a writer to write grandiose, but Daryl looked at the small and simple.  Could he capture the true significance of the ordinary?  He looked at those things that are overlooked and it's amazing what he discovered.

Daryl is always looking for articles.  To read submission guidelines to Seeing the Everyday, click here.

  1. Such a great reminder! Thank you! Those verses of scripture that teach us that by small and simple things, great things are brought to pass have given me great comfort over the years...one day at a time. Great post!
