By NWA Day Trips I mean anywhere you can travel round-trip on one tank of gas from Northwest Arkansas. There are so many family fun activities available to us! And although NWA is growing at record speed, we don’t have everything. Fortunately, the things we do lack are usually within a few hours and a tank of gas from us. Sometimes we skip over to our neighboring states of Oklahoma or Missouri. I have already shared a couple adventures in Oklahoma, and today I am sharing another Tulsa adventure.
The Great Passion Play
One of my first memories of Northwest Arkansas was visiting Eureka Springs as a child to attend The Great Passion Play. I remember the awe I felt as the stories of Jesus leapt off of the pages of the Bible and came to life.
Rediscovering a Local Treasure: The Jones Center
A few weeks ago, I told you about our day trip to Har-Ber Village and the amazing American Dream story of Harvey and Bernice Jones. The short version is that Mr. Jones started a delivery business at the age of 18 with a wagon and a mule team. Over the course of a lifetime, he built the largest trucking company in the country, The Jones Truck Line. (You can read more of that story here.)
The Joneses loved Northwest Arkansas and sought ways to give back to their community. Their lives’ work was to “to serve families, strengthen community and glorify God.”
One of their most generous gifts was The Jones Center for Families.
Professional Headshots: Why Your Photographer Matters
So, I recently had some headshots taken. You might wonder why on earth someone like me would need a formal headshot. Actually, there are plenty of reasons, even for a stay-at-home mom. Whether you have a direct sales business, are a blogger, or work with non-profits, you can never go wrong presenting an image of professionalism.
I have on occasion been invited to guest write on other blogs. Sometimes they request headshots to include with my bio. At some point, I decided that cropping everyone else out of a current family picture wasn’t good enough. It was time to bring in some professional help.
