Jesus Calms the Sea Kids Craft

Because most toddler’s attention span is all of a nanosecond, I find the simpler the craft the better. Age and personality type also play a factor when finding applicable crafts for your sweethearts. My children have two very different personalities. Even by age 2, my son could stay on a task for quite a while, whereas my daughter is just like me, “blessed”, with a very small attention span. We both start a hundred things at once and don’t finish them.

Being Your Husband’s Helpmeet not Helpbreak

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to realize that wives are important. We have big shoes to fill when we say, “I do” and step into this role as a “helpmeet” with our spouses. In the Bible, there were clearly woman who helped their husbands, and those who hurt them.

Hey God, I’ve Got Some Guy Named Jonah in my Stomach and I Think I’m Going to Throw Up! Book Review + Giveaway

FlyBy Promotions presented me with the opportunity to do a book review. I get to give a book to one of my readers, and receive one myself, pretty cool deal! I always love getting new books for my kids. We read 3 books every night before bed, 2-3 before nap time, and more throughout the day (especially if the kids butter me up). So needless to say… we love to read!

Faith in Adversity

Do I trust God and believe He is who He says He is? Do I have faith to believe without doubting? These questions are invoked when I think of the Christians who have gone before, who walked the talk and saw people’s hearts changed. Do I take God at His word, and am I willing to stand on the front lines professing God to be the one He says He is, the One and Only true God?

Uniquely Designed

I sit and watch as snowflakes hit my windshield one after another. I am amazed at how detailed and beautiful these handcrafted drops of ice are. How often have I had the chance to even pay attention? How easily it would have been for God to disregard the details in the snowflake, because, unless you really stop to pay attention, who really cares if they were just balls of snow with only a practical purpose? But God cared. It makes perfect sense, aligned with His nature, that the Artist that created the world paid attention to the details we rarely notice. Life can be like a good movie; the more you watch it, the more you see the details that were placed there by the director.

Jonah and the Giant Fish — Kid’s Craft

Kids are like sponges, absorbing everything we teach them and observing the priorities we set. As I watch these precious little children mimic my actions, it has made me conscience of who I was as a person and what I strive to be. What are my priorities, and what do I feel is the most important values I want to instill in my children?

Stop Complaining

It’s all perspective. We complain over trivial matters; yet, there are people who have a reason to complain, but don’t. For the same energy it takes to complain, we should use those mental resources and think of things we are thankful for.
