The Back to School Decision

Are you struggling with what to do about school this year? Us too. Every parent I know has spent the last few weeks in deep conversation about what decision to make for their children. There are so many things to weigh and anxiety that the decision you do make won’t be the right one. In […]

What If 2020 Is Good For Us?

What if 2020 is the best thing that ever happened to us? Obviously not the pandemic and getting sick part. And the hurricanes and murder hornets part. But working from home and staying inside and being together. What if 2020 was a lesson in slowing down and taking a look around? I’ve been able to […]

Making Sense of Screen Time

We’re all feeling it. The slump of social distancing, summer camps canceled, and just the bizarre world that is 2020. I’ve gone through phases as a parent. From forced gratitude of “you should feel lucky that…” to allowing myself to sit in the slump with them and say “you know what, you’re right this sucks.” […]

Listening and Learning with Jen Hatmaker

First I want to say how liberating it’s been to watch our podcast transform before our eyes. Penn and I have loved using this podcast as a place to grow and learn, especially inside our marriage. But with this week and last week’s episode, it felt so important to keep discussing social issues. Every day […]

The Reason for Your Emotion Rollercoaster

This weekend our kids found out they would not be returning to their class this school year. Lola was especially crushed. I told her it was ok to be upset. It was ok to cry and be angry. We gave her time to process and even let her decide our dinner for the night. We […]

How to Stay Married in Quarantine

Happy Coronaversary, guys. It’s been one month since social distancing started for us, and I feel like Bill Murray in Groundhog’s Day. (I may be installing a safe room in my next house just so I can exercise in peace, but we will discuss that at another time.) The whole shift of quarantine has been […]

Parents, What You’re Doing Is Impossible

[Portions of this blog were taken from a Facebook post written by Dr. Emily King] What parents are being asked to do right now is not humanly possible. Working, parenting, and teaching are three different jobs that cannot be done at the same time. It’s not hard because you are doing it wrong. It’s hard […]

Finding Our Enneagram Types

Ever since I went to a conference last year, I’ve been trying to figure out my Enneagram. I got so many different results, that even Penn took a quiz on my behalf to get to the bottom of it. Still no dice. So we did what we always do when we can find the answer […]

About Us
The Holderness family has been dancing in pajamas and singing during snow days for years — but last year they hit the record button on the camera and published their goofy video on YouTube. Penn, Kim, Lola, and Penn Charles continue to make hilarious videos around tent-pole events and circumstances most families face.
