Please pray for my cousin Daniel. He is in need of a heart transplant and is going through more than we can imagine. My aunt, his mother, has started posting on Pleonast, go here to be encouraged and to encourage! Maybe just let her know you are praying for them. http://pleonast.com/users/ourhope
Does anyone know of a church in Grand Rapids, MI? Clint and possibly the rest of us will be there next week.
Just wanted to recommend a book to anyone interested. I used a book called Wisdom and the Millers this year as part of Elijah's homeschool studies. It's about an Amish family studying the Proverbs. They take a verse and explain in a way for children to understand the lesson. Elijah just loved it and I found so many ways to apply the lessons to help Elijah with day to day things. Some of the chapters are better than others. A couple I really had to reword and change, for example: there is one about the sin of riding a three wheeler.
If anyone knows of any similiar books they could recommend please let me know. I'm looking for books that use scripture to teach character building lessons.
I have a friend who asked for some book recommendations for a women on being a wife and mother. Could you share with me what some of your favorites are?
The other day our preacher did an excellent sermon on being fishers of men. He kept up the analogy of fishing with spreading the gospel. I looked down at Elijah and smiled thinking he must really be enjoying this sermon with all the fishing references. Instead he looked up at me very concerned and whispered, "Why is he talking about fishing when he is suppose to be talking about God!" I tried to explain the whole analogy thing on the way home to which he just replied, "I don't get it." Ahhh, I love that kid!
