  • What you see on social media are the highlights of life.

  • But a truly good life is not based on the highlights alone.

  • It's established in life's everyday momentsthe moments that no one else sees.

  • Theses moments seem mundane and unimportant to us,

  • but making good choices in these times is the only way to live the good life.

  • The choice is yours.

  • Good morning, Becca. What are you working on here this morning so diligently?

  • Homework, so I don't need to do it afterwards.

  • Read these Kanjis please.

  • I'm the teacher today. You're the teacher today? Anna sensei?

  • Yea for Daddy!

  • Oh! This is not plugged in!

  • Here, go like this. Joeydid you come over to try our piano?

  • Yeah, I think that's why.

  • Oh, very good. OK. He just loves our piano.

  • So Ruth, when's the baking channel start?

  • Well... between baking at the coffee shop, studying in Shinjuku, having 4 kids at home...

  • Daddy! ...and little boys

  • And little boys- hey!

  • I like apple juice! You like apple juice? Oh, OK.

  • Maybe you can get somebody to sponsor you with Apple juice. Yeah really.

  • This is our normal life. It's full of comings and goings, school and work and now in 2020, lots of additional considerations.

  • This year feels like for every step you take forward, you have to take two steps back!

  • I've lived here in Japan for six years without proper rain boots. Well, no more!

  • Here's my purchases today: some rain boots and some rain pants.

  • I am tired of being soaked every time I go out in the rain!

  • So how do you live a good life in the midst of all of this crazyness?

  • Joshua's trying on my rain boots. What did you say? You think it fits?

  • Yeah, I do. Hmm, I'm not so sure.

  • Sarah, welcome home from school! How was it?

  • Good. Good?

  • [Joshua hiccups]

  • What did you do today?

  • Hi camera! Well....

  • Well, I've been on lunch duty.

  • You were on kyushokutoban? What does that mean?

  • You help everyone eat lunch?

  • No.... She helps serve the food.

  • Was that fun? Yeah.

  • Good! Now you're going to play some Minecraft with Big J, huh?

  • A little after-school fun.

  • Oh yeah!

  • So, you got school done, then right to the Coffee Shop...

  • Yep, after the coffee shop, Sarah

  • Back home to be a mommy.

  • That's right! Starting supper already.

  • I'm just going to go pick up the girls so they don't have to walk all the way home in the rain.

  • Well, I found my ladies! And you're not too terribly wetyou did a good job not getting wet, huh?

  • Did such a great job. Now, I'm going to change my socks!

  • You're going to change your socks?

  • What a rainy day! I looked outside and saw that it was raining so much and I was like "I better go get the girls."

  • Uncle Paul has a boo boo on his finger.

  • Uncle Paul!

  • He decided to try to be a kid and went down a slide too fast and fell on his finger.

  • Playing in the rain. Oh, ow!

  • So, did you come over comfort food since you... ....Yeah, I hurt my finger.

  • It's starting to swell. It's not bad yet, thankfully. Hopefully it won't get bad.

  • Get some ice on it. Ah! Get all better! Take the pain!

  • We're making plans for camping. Oh yeah!

  • Some day, when it stops raining again.

  • I need to keep this book?

  • No. If you pick this oneyou can pick anyone that you want.

  • Like, pretend I'm you.

  • "I pick this one! Oh, I'm going to keep it!"

  • Hey camera! Aghhhhhhhh!

  • OK, let's play the game, Joshua.

  • Pick only one! OK

  • Keep it!

  • Help Becca and Anna put away all the toys.

  • Let's clean up before dinner.

  • Oh! Looks who's working over here.

  • I need help. You're doing some homework, need some help?

  • It smells good in here, Zoot.

  • This is the yummiest food ever!

  • Rice and chicken tonight. Yum!

  • Hey! Let's see a smile. There, that was a good change.

  • [TV] The championship is on the line. Charity has come so far.

  • [TV show] But Jackie Wood is halfway down the mountain as well and is so close to catching up.

  • Sarah! This is intense!

  • Hey dude, Sarah is watching right now. Leave her alone!

  • She wants to see who's going to win!

  • (Gasps) Oh my goodness Charity! Go on!

  • Oh my goodness!

  • She just can't do it!

  • They're out of gas. They've used all their muscles

  • Ruth, do you have a favorite?

  • She's at the ending, my favorite's winning!

  • Please win! Go go!

  • Go little lady! Go, go, you can do it!

  • She's not giving up. She's not.

  • My girl's slowing downdon't slow down honey child!

  • This is nerve wracking! Oh my goodness. Oh my goodness!!

  • She's got it! She's winning! AHHHHH!

  • Our everyday life is busy with work and school, but we still make time to be together as a family.

  • Things like having dinner together,

  • Watching a favorite show, helping each other with homework,

  • Playing games and doing family devotions together are exercises that continually build the quality of life for any family.

  • The verse of the day!

  • That's right! The verse of the day!

  • Work at living in peace with everyone, and work at living a holy life, for those who are not holy will not see the Lord.

  • So "work at living in peace with everyone" — so what's that? Not fighting, right? Is it being nice?

  • Being nice!

  • As nice as you can, huh? Yeah. As nice as you can.

  • And work at living a holy life, what does that mean? What do you think Anna?

  • Um, a holy life is like believing in God... That's part of it.

  • OK! So this is about peace.

  • Don't be angry, don't fight and stuff.

  • So this is a picture that she wanted to start a fight, but she stopped it, so they were best friends.

  • Awww!

  • This girl - this girl started [the fight] and she was like "Oh, I do not like it..."

  • Look, her heart is broken.

  • So her heart got broken.

  • So please do not fight with your friends!

  • And please be happy and be peaceful.

  • And this is obeying your mommy andmommy and your daddy.

  • So this mom told her to pick up the dish that was right here

  • And then she obeyed the moment she heart that.

  • And then she went running to get the plate

  • and while she was taking it the mom came and said "Thank you, honey!"

  • I see. And this is OK.

  • And this! She was watching television (Sarah laughs)

  • And then she got too distracted,

  • So she couldn't hear her mom's voice... Oh that happened to us.

  • No! She did hear her mom's voice but she was like "But..."

  • So, the mom said "I told you to do that."

  • But the kid says "But I don't want to do it."

  • And that's not acceptable because if you are holy, like this side, you're going to hear God's voice.

  • So this is OK. This isdone!

  • Very good lesson, very good.

  • Anna sensei is a pretty good teacher, I think!

  • All the homework is done, now we're playing some Minecraft, huh?

  • What are we building today?

  • A Nintendo Switch Doggie.

  • A Nintendo Switch Doggie?

  • It looks like you took over my chair Sarah! Yeah.

  • (Grandma) So are you learning to do your characters in Japanese?

  • Yeah! What's it called in Japanese? What are you learning?

  • It's Hiragana, right?

  • Yeah.

  • I can't see itit's just going all wiggly wiggly.

  • Oh! Look at that puppy dog!

  • (Grandma) Is that your truck?

  • Bedtime, let's head down!

  • I don't want to.

  • I know you don't want to but it's still bedtime.

  • I love you.

  • Can you go...?

  • Can I have a kiss right here?

  • OK

  • Can I have a kiss right here?

  • Go pee please! Can I have a kiss right here?

  • Sure, you can hug and kiss. OK look at me!

  • I want you to go pee real quick. I'm going to get you your juice, OK?

  • AHHHHHHHHHHHH

  • That worked. Can I have a kiss right here?
