Every Day…

Every day I wonder if what I’m doing is ok. Is right. Is good. My kids watch TV during breakfast. Should we sit at the table and talk instead? I blog during their naps. And sometimes I surf. And tweet. And ignore my inbox. Should I do the laundry instead? I make dinner at 5pm. […]

Four Friends, A Roof & Jesus

A few days ago I had a memory of a story I used to tell when my husband and I traveled to camps and churches for special kids’ events. It’s not something I made up, but I think I perfected it pretty well. I thought you would like it–either to show your kids or to […]

Scripture ABCs: Letter Z

Well, I’ve finally updated you on all our “lost” ABC scritpures and crafts! A through M was pre-blog and it was really fun to revisit those verses and crafts. *whew* I’d definitely do some of them differently now. But I’m also amazed at how many of those verses we still talk about and repeat today! […]
