Scripture gives many examples of what prayer is.For the month of September, I am sharing with everyone what I’ve learned about prayer and praying. In the last post, I shared what the Bible says about prayer.
I believe we go through things for a reason. I believe that somewhere along our lifeline, God will use our story to encourage, lift up, change, or help someone. The only way that can happen is if we have the courage to share our story. Is it painful to relive it as we tell it? You better believe it is. Think about this, if you don’t share how will anyone know you have empathy for what they are going through?
The tradition I cherish most is the time we spend as a family reading out loud to each other.
Today marks the 16th year I’ve been blessed to be your mom.
Teens and young adults can be tricky when it comes to getting them to do things with you. Through our Summer of Fun I’ve accidentally discovered, they do want to spend time with me, but the rules of engagement have changed and I’m the one who needs to change how I think and how I act in order to get them involved.
21 Summer of Fun activities and a trip to Oz will keep you laughing and give you lots of new things to try!! Come on in
Did you enjoy walking through the park yesterday? Wasn’t it sooo relaxing? It was for us too! I’m glad you stopped in today. Do I have a story to tell you!
This is a double-header in that we did one activity during the day and one in the evening.
Today’s activity is a new spin on the old game Hot Potato. Do you remember playing that as a kid? I do, too! It’s HOT! Going swimming or playing with water goes hand in hand with hot. That’s how we came up with this idea for a new twist on an old game. Come on in and see how to play!
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!
Here we are on Day 3 of Summer of Fun. Today has been quite a day. Of course, we rolled our die last night and were all set for what was to take place today, but as often happens, things happened. Know what I mean? After a few detours, we finally made it to our free day. What does a ‘free’ day look like? Well, mostly its everyone choosing what they want to do. Come on in and find out what we did!
