If you love Spring as much as we do at our house, you are going to love this family night lesson! It is all about growing faith in Jesus Christ. He created this beautiful world that we live in. Having faith in Jesus is the first principle of the gospel. It is the most important thing we can teach our children. Get the lesson and printable on the blog today!
I love the Biblical metaphor equating faith to a seed. It is scattered a few different places, but Matthew 13 expands on the concept well (check out Alma 32 if you use the Book of Mormon). Explaining faith as a seed is such a magnificent way to help children understand an abstract spiritual concept. Cultivating faith, indeed choosing faith, is an important value that I hope to pass on to my children.
If you can’t learn from my hacks, since I have none, please learn from my mistakes. If it pleases the audience, I have prepared a few of my more memorable home and yard fails for your reading pleasure. Perhaps you will find a lesson within each.
Hi Or So She Says readers! I’m Becky from Bite of Delight, and I’m so thrilled to be a new contributor here! I’m a Utah girl married to my best friend, and together we have four little buddies. I love to cook and I spend most of my time in the kitchen. We don’t eat elaborate meals every night, but we do eat together as a family every night. I love reading and Sunday afternoon naps and a clean house. Things that I miss since having 4 kids, but they’re all slowly coming back into my life!
Normally you’ll find me in my kitchen elbow-deep in bread dough or chocolate, but for my first post here, I want to talk to you about houseplant care because…it’s Houseplant Appreciation Day! When I found out about this fun day, I talked to the nice folks at Western Gardens and they agreed to help me out with a giveaway just for you! (Keep reading for details!)
Hey! It’s Brooke from Blissful Roots. Summertime means garden time for our family. My husband and I both grew up in families that planted a garden every summer (which I am very grateful for!). I guess you can say it’s in our blood. Do you garden? I don’t want to spend this entire post on a gardening soap box, but I can’t tell you the number of benefits that come from having your own garden. My boys (and myself) have learned work, patience, you reap what you sow, the miracle of a tiny seed, the beauty of nature, enjoying the fruits of your labor, living off the land, being self-sufficient, and much, much more. It’s work, but magical!
Okay, enough of my gardening soap box! What I’d really like to share today are some of our favorite garden books for kids. I can’t say I really plan out themes for my boys all summer long, but I do like to build upon what we’re already doing. I love having great books to go along with the summer activities we do. And let me tell you, gardening takes the whole summer. Not all day, every day, but once again, you reap what you sow.
My name is Kadie and I blog at Seven Alive All Livin’ in a Double Wide. I am a stay-at-home mom to 5 great kiddos. They keep me pretty busy. With what little spare time I have I enjoy all types of crafts, sewing, cooking and crocheting. My favorite things to work on now are […]
If you would have told me 10 years ago that I would convert my 1/2 acre homesite in the middle of a small Texas town into an urban farm, I would’ve thought you were nuts. But over the past couple of years, I’ve had a desire to use more organic foods to cook with and […]
Hello! It’s Roberta…again. This is me and my little 5 yr. old bundle of love. I love to cook, run, and be a Mom! My husband is the greatest Dad, and husband EVER and well life couldn’t get much better. Since life is so great, let’s preserve a little of that happiness by making memories […]
Every spring I’m reminded by the hummingbirds tapping at my window that I REALLY need to get the poor fellas a feeder! They can see all my houseplants next to the windows and want to come check out the goods…but, oops…there’s a window there. So, this year I have vowed to be gracious and put […]
