Today, I’d like to talk with you about your prayer life. I know, prayer is a very personal thing and most of the time it isn’t something you share with others. Rest at ease. I’m not going to ask you to share personal prayers, although I’m always interested in prayer requests you may have. I would LOVE to pray for you.

In a few minutes, I’m going to share a wonderful resource with you that can enhance your prayer life and help keep you focused during prayer time.

Summer of Fun – Day 4 – Baking Together

For day 4, we’re jumping into the kitchen and baking together. I don’t know what it is about spending time in the kitchen with my kids, but it’s one of my all-time favorite things to do. Maybe it’s the way they interact with each other. Maybe it’s all the shenanigans going on. They are always giving each other snarky (in fun of course) comments and teasing each other. Whatever it is, it makes me smile and laugh every.single.time!!  One day they’re going to leave the nest and are going to need to know how to take care of themselves. So, cooking and baking skills are NOT a bad thing. Right? Right!
