It is important to pray for your children and speak blessings to them and over them each day!
You can pray today to surround them with God's awesome blessings and favor at school, with their friends, and in all of their endeavors. His abundant favor in their lives brings peace and joy!

"For it is You who blesses the righteous man, O LORD, You surround him with favor as with a shield." Psalm 5:12

Boz The Green Bear: Book Review

I am so thrilled to find new ways to help teach my daughter about God in fun and interesting ways. Boz the Green Bear, is an entertaining, quality, and educational series. We are big fans and I'm sure your little one will be too!
In the book, BOZ Takes You to the Zoo— Gracie, Drew, and Boz visit the zoo to discover that God’s world is full of animals. This is a bright interactive board book that "helps children six and under learn about animals while practicing their tiger roars and doing kangaroo hops." We enjoyed this happy zoo adventure.
Let’s Learn Our ABCs with BOZ is another Boz book that uses rhyme to help children discover their ABCs in a fun new way. As children uncover each letter of the alphabet, they will also find out that God made everything from A to Z—but not only that, God made everything for you and me! It is a small book perfect for pre-school aged children!

How To Make a Decision

Need to make a tough decision? Maybe you are wondering what college you should go to or what job to take. Every decision, be it great or small are important to God.

Here are 3 quick questions (that my mom taught me) that you can use or teach to your children when they are facing a choice:

  1. Does it give GLORY to God?

  2. Do you get an INNER WITNESS?
  3. Is the TIMING right?

The first question is important because if God doesn't get the glory, praise, and honor, who does? Yes, by default, the devil will take any attention he can. So make sure it all goes upward, to God alone!

What is an inner witness? Some say consciousness, gut feeling, or intuition, but God
calls it your spirit.

Timing is important God and He is not in a rush. Timing is spoken about throughout the whole bible. Be patient and be willing and give the rest to God because He loves and cares about you.

Jeremiah 29:11
"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
