Been Quiet but had to Post

Been kind of quiet lately, actually super busy really, I have lots to write about but no time to do it. I came across this on a blog I follow it's excellent and thought I would post it. I have pictures from valentine's day father/daughter dance...apparently this is quite popular as many church's and friends we know went to a father/daughter dance this weekend.

Promise to post soon.

Here is what Erica had from her website (click Today's Challenge to read the whole thing).

Today’s Challenge:

As a minister to your family, what is God’s plan for you as a homeschooler and parent? Take some time today to remind yourself who you are in Christ. (I realize this is geared towards mom’s, but really can be applied to any parent.)

Super Mom

Abiding Mom


Is (Psalm 46:10)

Tries to impress others

Pleases the Lord (Eph. 5:10, Proverbs 29:25)

Is controlled by an agenda (curriculum, schedule, etc)

Is controlled by the Holy Spirit: (Gal. 5:22-26) (Uses curriculum & schedules as tools for orderliness so she's more free to follow the spirit)

Her self worth is found in her accomplishments (clean house, perfect kids, the perfect bulletin boards, etc.)

Her self worth is found in an accurate view of who she is in Christ Jesus (Eph 2:10)

Her peace is found in the “perfect” environment

Her peace is found in Jesus in the midst of any storm (Is 26:3)

She is discouraged by failure

Failure reminds her that God's strength is made perfect in weakness (2 Cor. 12:9-10)

She expects perfection from herself and others

She practices grace with herself and others (Eph 4:32)

She teaches her kids to be good

She teaches her kids to be Godly (Proverbs 22:6)

She is frustrated with her lack of spiritual fruit

She abides in Christ and bears much fruit (John 15:5)

She does things with her children

She builds a relationship with her children (Deut 6:6-7)

Her perspective is based on what is seen

Her perspective is based on what is unseen (Col 3:2)

She chooses quantity of activities

She chooses the most excellent Way (I Cor 13)

Her kids may recall how busy she always is. Her children rise and call her blessed. (Prov. 31:28)
