Happy 4th of July from my family to yours!
This past weekend we celebrated our wonderful country’s birthday along with my youngest daughter’s birthday!
Her only birthday request was to go to the American Girl store…so here we are finishing lunch before heading downstairs to see all the dolls!
Here’s a belly shot for those of you wanting to “see” our next addition! Coming this August!!!
Nothing like celebrating the 4th of July with family and friends……plus celebrating your birthday too makes it even better!
And a few sparklers with Daddy always makes it memorable!
Hope you had a wonderful weekend celebrating our country’s birthday too!
Today we are starting week 8 and finishing the Gift of Faith. Listed are a few of my favorite quotes from this week’s reading.
“We give this gift of faith by making the living Word a natural part of our family life. Reading the Bible as a family, memorizing passages together and discussing how they apply to our lives, even letting kids act out Bible stories are ways to build faith by letting biblical truth permeate the fabric of our everyday existence.” – Sally Clarkson
“Making the Word of God the foundational source of instruction and training in our children’s lives will ensure that, wherever they go the rest of their lives and whatever they encounter, God will lead them.” - Sally Clarkson
“I must do what I can to stay connected to Jesus at all costs. Only when he lives through me will I have the patience, love, faith, strength, perspective, and understanding I need to raise godly, faithful children. Spiritual fruit in the lives of our children even depends- up to a point- on my staying connected to the Lord.” – Sally Clarkson
A few questions to think about this week as we read Chapters 11 & 12:
1. What am I doing to teach God’s Word to my children? (Chapter 11)
2. How as a mom, can you focus on being a branch and stay attached to the vine? What changes do you need to make, if any? (Chapter 12)
