As I saw the news come through on my Instagram feed I couldn’t believe it. Was I really reading this correctly? Did this sweet momma and several family members really die in a house fire the night before? What devastating news.
Blank printable calendars can be the perfect tool for organizing your schedule, tracking your goals and documenting important moments.
We have entered the busiest time of year for many people and it can be overwhelming, stressful, and difficult to stay organized. At the exact time when we want life to slow down so that we can celebrate the birth of our Savior, Jesus, we also experience a lot of pressure to get things done.
I have compiled a list of 100 total ways for kids to practice gratitude and compassion so they can be a blessing to others and experience more joy in their lives.
As parents, it can be frustrating when our kids show attitudes of ungratefulness. We want them to express appreciation for the things they have and not complain about what they don’t have. It can be upsetting and even embarrassing when our kids are ungrateful.
Do you want your beginning writer to write their own thank you notes but aren’t sure if they would be up to the task of writing a lot of different notes?
Kids are always going through “a stage”. At least in my part of the world they do. I hear parents say it all the time, “Oh, it’s just a stage” as their child is doing something that embarrasses or frustrates them.
How does your family manage through the excruciating long process of adopting a child?
How do you bear those long days, or even years, of waiting to hear some good news?
Wallets in hand, our five-year-old twins walked up to the counter where right behind it, Lumiere and the enchanted dishes were dancing to the music of Be Our Guest. The girls gently placed their sweet treasures on top of the counter as we approached.
On Friday night, as I was in the middle of telling my husband, Joey, about all my plans for the next day I heard a startled cry coming from the girls’ bedroom. “Mommy!” It was Jenna’s voice and I knew something was wrong.
Last year, our son, Kellan, received a handmade thank-you note from one of his friends for a birthday gift he’d given him. This card, created by a seven-year-old child was one of the sweetest little thank you notes I’d ever seen. The detailed drawing and note it included expressed clear appreciation for the gift and the friendship that the boys shared.
One of the things that I’ve tried to consistently do with the children on a daily basis for the last several years is to give thanks to the Lord for something when we pray. It has now naturally become a part of our prayers and when the kids say their own prayers they almost always give thanks for something.
And I am so thankful when they are thankful! 🙂
