More Of What Matters Most

I posted a few weeks ago that I wanted to start incorporating more godly talk, ways etc. into our everyday life with the girls but I wasn't sure exactly how to do it. I have been doing some research and found some really great ideas. We bought a Gigi bible for Chris and I to read with Ellie at night and Emily when she is older. So far we have only got a chance to do it a few times but she really really likes it. There was a little play about Adam and Eve and Chris and I acted it out for her and she LOVED it. We got a standing ovation and Bravo:) We took turns acting it out several times. I have found several good ideas from Totally Tots . Once you go to the site go to Bible Bits on the right hand side. They have great activities to do with kids that bring the bible to life. I also found this awesome blog where the mom was great enough to write out a lot of activities to do with you child about love. I still have not been reading my bible in front of Ellie or taking time to pray with her during the day so I need to make some changes but hopefully by using some of the great ideas it will put us in the right direction. The last thing I want to share is this amazing article on Grace Parenting. I highly recommend everyone read it!!!!

The Grace Parenting was very interesting. It is too true that we influence out often do we see them mimic us? We do need to be mindful of what we present them to mimic.
