What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

Create the Healthy Family Culture You Want with Kimberly Amici

I know it can’t be just me. But, it happens almost every week, and it drives me nuts.

It’s Sunday morning and we’re trying to get out the door for church. And of course, everyone’s running a few minutes behind and I can feel my frustration boil.

As soon as everyone’s in the car I turn around and lay into them.

“We’re ALWAYS late for church and I’m sick of it! It makes me feel like I’m the only one that cares!”

Peter (my 8yo) starts crying. Calvin (11yo) begins to argue, but then quickly shuts his mouth. Scott (my 40yo) turns and gives me the look, like “is that really necessary?”

Ok, this is not my best moment by any means, and I instantly regret it.

But I know you understand what I’m talking about.

Because you’ve been there, too... whether it’s church or school or meeting up with friends at a certain time.

That feeling...of all of us sitting in the car, fuming with anger and resentment... is NOT what I want to be known for. This is not the culture that I want in our family.

Family culture exists whether you know it or not - for better or worse.

For many of us, the family culture feels strained, tense, reactive and downright unhealthy.

Then try throwing some good intentions of personal self-care into the mix, and you have a recipe for disaster and high levels of frustration for everyone involved.

Today, I want to introduce you to an expert on this subject. After spending years helping businesses and large organizations create healthy, thriving cultures, Kimberly Amici is now focused on helping families thrive.

Kimberly is the founder of Build Your Best Family, and today she’s going to show us how we can get clear on our family values and start living them out in practical ways.

Some of my favorite quotes from this episode are:

“Ask yourself ‘how do we want people to feel when they leave our presence?’”

“Getting that buy-in from other family members can be hard, so we have to start by being clear on our own personal values first.”

We also talk about:

  • How to handle the feelings when we as moms really want our families to healthy, fit, and active - but other family members aren’t interested.
  • What to do when we begin to feel resentment toward our family
  • How can we listen better to our kids and use their feedback to help transform our family

If you crave a healthy family culture - and you desire to parent your kids with purpose according to your strong family values - this episode is for you!
