Come with me, together let’s lasso the moon.  A wise friend of mine, upon retiring after thirty years of service to the Montessori community, told me a child is like the moon, they reflect the light in their universe. This analogy has always stuck with me. Our children echo our parenting style, our religious beliefs, our outlook on life, our creativity, and our curiosity.

Here at Let’s Lasso the Moon we bring together modern families searching for balance in our chaotic world. We help parents by sharing simple activities that elevate everyday moments into family traditions and memorable adventures.

My name is Zina and I am the founder and primary author of Let’s Lasso the Moon. If forced to summarize myself, I’d have to borrow the words of Albert Einstein:

I have no special talents.
I am only passionately curious.

My two daughters Quinn & Rose (7 & 6) keep me on my toes, passionate about life and inspired.

Each week I, my husband Shad, and a unique group of creative moms
share three or four articles on:

  • Ideas for inspiring creativity & curiosity
  • Modern Parenting
  • Simple Living
  • Family Traditions

Some of our top articles include:

Grab your rope.  Let’s Lasso the Moon, together.

Let’s encourage divergent thinking, instead of convergent thinking; innovation instead of standardization.  Grab your child’s interest while it’s hot.  Let your child follow their interest wherever that passion leads, however quickly it leads them, regardless of what other children their age are working on.  See the light in your child’s eyes. {Quote Source}

        Is this you Angela?

        You need to start by creating a few boards. I cannot add you as a contributor until I can follow you first. :-)

    I love your quote “Our children echo our parenting style, our religious beliefs, our creativity, and our curiosity.” This is so true! Last night we saw the movie “Courageous” at our church date night and it reminded me of your blog and pinterest boards. I am so excited about what you are doing for the parenting community. It is our responsibility to be not just ok parents but great ones!!

      Rachel, ahhhh my Montessori mentor… she is a smart one. It is so true, they do reflect & echo us. I agree, it is my goal to do my best to be a “great” parent. I know sometimes I fall short, but I love all the online support we get from one another!
