Best Research Around the Web
Good Stuff is a monthly feature of A Living Laboratory. I share the best findings and treasures from around the web to help you with the art and science of family life.
The years are short, moms. Faith Filled Parenting challenges us to say yes to our kids and no to distractions through intentional living.
But how do we manage all the digital distraction in our lives? Check out the 3-Part series on digital downtime by Jacqueline Wolven. This is the best example of getting your digital life under control. It’s real life folks.
If you need some creative ideas for your little ones Nicolette at Powerful Mothering has you covered.
Is getting your kids to talk about their day is like pulling teeth, the Mannerly Mom is right up your alley.
Karen at Dogs Don’t Eat Pizza is my new decorating muse. Two of her recent posts have thrown me into a planning frenzy.
And solving a great mystery in my life – how to get the computer keyboard clean – without breaking it. ZClean showed me how to do it right.
My nephew is coming to visit and it’s been awhile since I’ve cooked with young children. Raki’s post on kitchen safety was a great refresher. Outside the Box Mom is one of my new favorites.
And perfect for the heat of August is Bethany’s post at Adventures in Partaking.
If you are a woman of a certain age you remember when fat was evil. Now fat is good. Food Court has some helpful ideas to add quality, healthy fats into our diet. My daughter has some food sensitivities that make this a challenge, so I needed this article.
I recently met Mina (virtually) from Give Me Some Spice (although if I ever get to the UK I’m taking her cooking class). Cooking authentic Indian food has been on my bucket list for awhile. I feel like I have a friend holding my hand. Her recipes are honest to goodness Indian cuisine for the home cook.
Life with Dee is another one of my happy finds this week. When I saw this idea for a morning basket I said, “Swoon!” This is something every woman needs for good mental health.
I have a love/hate relationship with my kettlebells. I love them, because I know they work. But I hate them because – well, they’re really heavy. Mike at Transitions from War reminds me that I can add a little here and a little there throughout the day.

30 Something Dad is an entertaining guy. He’s spot on with his travel advice too. We love leaving at 4a.m. – it’s the only way to travel with children. Come to think of it, his wisdom applies to traveling with my high schoolers, married kids, husband…people still have needs no matter how old they get.
For Pacific Northwest fans MissTris on the Move pulled together…
I hope these beautiful posts inspire your life this month.
