Through Little Eyes

Posted by on Jun 18, 2018 in Blog, Bonus Days | 2 comments

Before our children entered the scoot-around, get-into-everything stage, I would crawl around on all fours in order to childproof our home. It was a great way to gain perspective into their little worlds and to see things on their level. But as the girls grew, I realized that babyhood isn’t the only time to look through a child’s eyes. Sometimes, moms are so busy training, instructing, and sharing our bits of wisdom, we forget that our children have a...

Are You Going to Answer?

“Honey are you going to answer him?” “What are you talking about?” I asked my husband. “No one asked me anything.” “Elijah just asked you a question and you completely ignored him.” “I didn’t hear him say a word.” Did he really ask me something? How did I not hear him? “I’m so sorry sweetheart, Mommy has a lot on her mind.” Have you ever been surrounded by a room full of people and yet you felt alone? That’s...

I Did It by Myself!

Posted by on Jun 14, 2018 in A CHERISHED FAMILY, Blog, Inspiration for the Journey | 0 comments

“I did it!!” My grandson exclaimed. He lifted big blue eyes to mine. They glowed with surprise and wonder at his new accomplishment. He leaned back on the wooden floor, and a huge smile lit his face. He shoved one leg straight in front of my face, his shoe inches from my nose. Maneuvering the correct shoe onto the right foot was a great achievement for a three-year-old, but an even bigger victory was the tug of war that...

Raising a Generation Dangerous in Prayer

Posted by on Jun 13, 2018 in A LASTING FAITH, Blog, Prayers and Promises | 0 comments

What do you think of when you hear a train whistle? Did you know that it’s a thrilling sound that can change the world? When we moved our teen and toddler from Houston to a very small country community, the house was in ghastly condition, requiring extensive cleaning and repairs. With our belongings held hostage by boxes, we worked hard to establish basic creature comforts such as toilets that flushed, running water, and other critical needs. The girls stayed...

Finding Religion in Summer Reading

Posted by on Jun 12, 2018 in Blog, Bonus Days | 0 comments

Did you know that school-aged children run the risk of losing critical reading skills during the summer vacation months? Research* shows that children who aren’t reading at home or in the community during a school break will fall behind. Sadly, children from low income homes suffer the greatest loss of skills, due in large part to less access to books. So, what’s a parent to do about this risk and is there a way to wrap “the Good Book”...

SMILE Power

Posted by on Jun 7, 2018 in A LASTING FAITH, Blog, Family Do-votions | 0 comments

June is National Smile Month.  June 15th is Smile Power Day. When you flash your pearly white teeth at people it can brighten their day. A smile shows kindness, offers hope, and can ease a person’s anger, fear, or sadness. Check out verses on asking God to smile on you: Psalm 4:6, Psalm 31:16, and Psalm 119:135. If you’re not sure you’re ready to smile, pause and think of the blessings in your life for home, family, country, God,...

Praying for Independence and Dependence

Posted by on Jun 6, 2018 in A LASTING FAITH, A Mother's Prayers, Blog | 0 comments

I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing. John 15:5 (NASB) I have to admit I suffered from mommy-envy at times while the boys were growing up. I’d gather together with other moms and they’d share how little Susie was a clinger or little Joey wouldn’t let mom out of his sight. I didn’t really want the problems...
