Just the ramblings of my adventures working on the masterpieces that God has given me.

We have begun a new tradition in our house. The kids are having a daily morning devotional with me. We sing songs together about God. Then we have a short lesson and a memory verse. I created a devo basket that has books about God, Bible coloring books, Bible puzzles and journals in it. After our short lesson, they can choose something out of the basket to do. While I have my quiet time the kids have their own quiet time. Then we pray together afterwards. I have really enjoyed the fruits of this new tradition. The kids love to learn new things about God and His Bible. Arianna's prayers have already grown. It is amazing how their little minds can memorize scripture. This has also helped the kids to really be thinking about doing what is right and being nice to each other throughout the day.
“Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood.” - Fred Rogers
Live in a way that the preacher doesn't have to lie at your funeral.
"Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor souls who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat." --Theodore Roosevelt
Who am I? That is a difficult question to answer! I am a wife to a loving man! I am a Mom of 2 wonderful children of which I homeschool. I love to scrapbook and take pictures mainly of the kids. I have five dachshund that are as close to kids as they get.
