I'm working on putting together a complete book of bible songs for the kids at services. I'm pulling from every source I can find so let's hear it. What are your top 5 favorite songs to sing with the kids?
Mine are: 1. The Little Red Box
2. Higher Ground (Dale's version)
3. The Lord Liveth
4. God Made Me
5. Wrapped Up, Tied Up (This Little Light of Mine)
A few weeks ago, we sat down as a family to watch TV and The Karate Kid was on. I remember seeing that as a kid, so I thought my kids would enjoy it. As we watched, the older I felt. Later, I found out that Troy and Kerri
watched the same thing. My kids loved it and so did their kids. We even rented part 2 tonight. The boys
came over to watch too. I loved that movie as a kid, and now I think "How corney!"
What movie did you love as a kid and are not afraid to admit it!
I've tried really hard to get Kerri to post. I know she's busy, but this is so much fun! Lots of friends and funny stories
. I know she comes on here to read mine, so use this opportunity to convince her. She has a great rabbit story!
Let's even get Troy on here, if he can find some toilet paper.
The kids started back to school today (yea!!!) They need to have scheduled active lifestyles. School certainly gives them that. Our school has recently decided to restructure their day differently from years past. They are calling it the "Balanced School Day" It makes sense in the grand scheme of things, but a little hard for them to get used to. Having said all that, it got me thinking about "balance". How to balance time, money, activities. Sometimes I feel like I have to do it all. My goal is to stop trying to do it "ALL". I want to be a good mom, volunteer at school, work a little to help with the bills, be the virtuous woman my husband can be proud of, etc.... Paul left the example to let the Lord guide our steps and He will guide us to do ALL things with His strength. I pray that I can balance my life and my family with the weight in the Lords hands.
How do you find your daily balance?
came up with a great idea of having a ladies newsletter for the christian women at our congregation. My first instinct was "GREAT!" What a great way to communicate visitation schedule, teaching tools, thought provoking articles (for women) or prayer lists. We have a weekly newsletter. So some didn't see a need for it. Do any of you have such a thing for the ladies? How often is it distributed? If you do, let me know how it's working for you.
