When I was in college, “environmentalism” was a hot topic. My college had an environmental studies major, and there were recycling bins, and there were rallies — and you got plenty hassled if you didn’t do things that were “good for the environment.”

Quite honestly, it was a little annoying. It seemed that many people were worshipping the environment. And since I wanted to worship God, in some ways I just rolled my eyes at those “green ways.”

Thankfully, God has grown me over the years.

Today, I see green things as acts of good stewardship. God has provided such a wonderful, beautiful world for us to enjoy. Don’t we want to take care of it?

In addition to reporting how we’ve gone green at our house, this week I am pleased to share with you several guest posts from fellow moms who have done the same. They’ll be sharing their experiences of putting good stewardship into practice.

  1. That sounds like an interesting series. I have become more environmently conscious the last few words, but I still have a long way to go!

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
