Train a Child....

I have read that children between the ages of three and eight begin to acquire the sense of self they will come to know as their own being AND those that acquire sense of self later in the teenage years will suffer from emotional distress because of it.  Wow!  Doesn't that sentence make our jobs as parents of young children sound important!  It IS important!

We've really been working on filling up this "sense of self"...connecting "self" with Choosing to Love God and Choosing to Love Others.

This video makes me smile!  I know it makes God smile too!

Hmmm...

I see Betsy playing with her babies...Something she's been doing a LOT lately...

Me:  "Are you changing your baby's diaper?"
Betsy:  "No, I'm getting ready to ask her fake dad to change it for her."

Prayer Request...

Isn't it funny through blogging how we can read about and really get to know people through their words...even though we haven't met them...

I know some people who follow hundreds of blogs...but I only follow a few...and of the few I read...each week I'm inspired in some way.  Whether it is inspiration to be a better mother, a better friend, a better Christian...

This morning as I read Ashley's blog I was so impressed with her faith that I wanted to pass it along.  Over the past few months she has written some beautiful posts on faith as she has gone through trials...losing her father suddenly, having a miscarriage and now a molar pregancy.  She has a beautiful attitude and her comment about "God would just know I'm faking it" says so much about her relationship with God and I feel sure her faith and friendship with God will one day lead her through the narrow door (Luke 13: 22-30).

Please add Ashley to your daily prayer list.
