If you're anything like me, you don't enjoy hearing your children fight and argue. This morning I read James 4:1 and decided to write a brief Bible study for my children to do on this topic. This is not extensive by any means but something that I thought they could do in their morning devotions. Maybe you can use it in your home too!
Bible Study on Fighting (designed for children ages 7-12).
As 2013 comes to a close, I reflect on all the ways God has blessed our family this past year. He has worked in ways we couldn’t have before imagined. Our biggest blessing was the healthy birth of little Andrew in July! This little guy has brought great joy into our lives and is a testimony of God’s grace to us.
Sometimes a light surprises The Christian while he sings;
It is the Lord who rises With healing in His wings...
These words were running through my mind this morning, and I thought, "How perfectly fitting for my next blog entry"--which, for quite some time, I have been trying to decide how to write.
What to Do When God Rewrites Your Life--that’s the subtitle for Cary Schmidt’s book Off Script. I love it. Off Script. Is your life turning out exactly the way you wrote it? I doubt it. Mine isn’t.
I exercised this morning. And wondered, Why is this so hard? The new chill in the air as I walked to our neighborhood clubhouse was refreshing.
But once I got on the treadmill, I couldn’t figure out why my brief runs interspersed with the walks were so taxing.
If there's one blog I visit almost daily, it's Crystal Paine's Money Saving Mom. I love her practical tips, honest transparency, and conversational writing style.
It’s raining today and dreary outside, but I’m smiling anyway! Three reasons I can rejoice today:
1. Chemo is in the past.
Sixteen months ago I received my last dose of chemo drugs. I'm so glad it's over. If you've been through it, you know what I mean. And if you haven't, you can imagine.
I just have to share my latest favorite with you. It's one of those salads that I wouldn't have typically tried. But when a friend introduced me to a recipe that used broccoli slaw, spinach, and chicken, I started searching for some vegetarian recipes using broccoli slaw.
Broccoli is known to be an excellent cancer-fighting food. Among the cruciferous vegetables (think cauliflower, cabbage, kale), broccoli has the highest amount of sulforaphane.
