I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. Philippians 4:13

We've just been plugging along with school, church and life. The one thing that has been awesome is how much my children are growing in their love for Jesus. The more you have the Word saturated in your home the more it wears off on the children (and adults for that matter).

Deuteronomy 6:5-9  And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.  And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes. And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates.

The #1 thing I want (and pray) for my children is that they will grow to love the Lord more than themselves. So, that means that I have to be that way also...ya, we all know how that can go...;p  I just keep reading my Bible, praying and trying to live God's will for my life as a wife and mother. I'm definitely not perfect, but by God's grace and strength I will be the example they need in their lives.
