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.

Mom Guilt: Handling Those Feelings of Inadequacy and Distinguishing Them from True Conviction

Mom-guilt is not healthy nor appropriate in any situation, yet we feel it all the time. We're constantly aware of a general sense that we're dropping the ball or we're not "good enough" at managing life. Whether we feel this pressure of inadequacy internally or from our social circles, we need to be aware of it and learn to let it go.

The most obvious areas of mom-guilt are parenting choices, household duties, our professional careers, time spent in relationships, and even our own self-care with our decisions about exercise and eating. So, on this episode, Scott and I have a deep conversation about how to spot the source of mom-guilt and powerfully confirm our right-standing as moms before the Lord.

We're also going to make a clear and important distinction between mom-guilt and true Holy Spirit conviction. What if the guilt that you're feeling is actually a prodding from the Lord?
