Queenhood Tuesday - Conversation Starters
Welcome to my new weekly feature here at Grace Mothering, called Queenhood Tuesday, where I post something that encourages or informs (or just blathers on) about reigning as queen in our home. The idea comes from Nancy Campbell's article Called to Queenhood.
I am all for a movement to get us off of the computer and relating to people. I'm getting more and more low-tech as time goes by. So, this week's submission is a list of conversation starters, compiled by me from many sources. Use these at the dinner table, at mom night out, family gatherings, etc. Everyone LOVES talking about themselves!
