Simple Prayers to Teach Children

Simple Prayers to Teach Children

It’s not too difficult a thing to encourage our children to pray, especially if we lead by example, but as they grow it’s a wonderful thing to teach them how to pray just as Christ taught us how to pray with the Lord’s prayer. Structure is very beneficial to all of us, particularly for the less mature Christian who many not have words come easily or who may be easily distracted in prayer or devotional time. Even for the mature Christian, structured prayers and psalms are great tools to be able to use in times of trouble, joy, and life in general.

The Parable of the Prodigal Son

The Parable of the Prodigal Son

The first forty days after a new baby is born are sacred days. At times they seem long, but in retrospect, the entire first year of a new baby’s life just seem to fly right by. The first forty days are no exception. In fact, they are so much like a wedding. There is so much anticipation for the wedding itself but once it arrives it seems to be over just as quick as it all started, and the bride and groom are considered lucky if they get a chance to eat some food. The first six weeks of motherhood are so similar.

Memory Eternal: Happy Birthday, Papa

Memory Eternal: Happy Birthday, Papa

Today my dad would have been 71 years old. I think about him and miss him every day. I tell my kids stories about him and remind them of events and stories so he stays in their memories. I miss his voice, his loving advice and council, his warm hugs, his music, and his conversation. We could chat for hours and not run out of things to talk about.

Valentine’s Day For Kids: Instagram Round-Up

With the exception of a few major holidays, my husband and I are not much into celebrating holidays. Valentine’s Day fits into those holidays that we don’t generally celebrate. Usually, we will go out to eat together a few days before or after the day, but gift exchanges are not part of our tradition. With that stated, I’ve been trying to do a better job at employing fun traditions that my children can enjoy and remember as they grow.

On the Sixth Day…

On the Sixth Day…

Day 6: “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. And God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth and subdue it; and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the air and over every living thing that moves upon the earth…And God saw everything that he had made, and behold, it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, a sixth day.”
‭‭Genesis ‭1:27-28, 31‬
