My Favorite Easter Breakfast – Resurrection Rolls

This is what we have for breakfast every Easter morning. These are so fun because when the rolls are done baking – they are empty inside – JUST like Jesus’ tomb! You need just 5 ingredients: crescent rolls, marshmallows, sugar, cinnamon and butter Give each child one triangle shaped section of crescent roll. This represents the tomb. Each child takes one marshmallow which represents the body of Christ. Dip the marshmallow in the butter and roll in cinnamon and sugar mixture. This represents the oils and spices the body was anointed with upon burial. Lay the marshmallow on the dough […]

My Mom – My Role Model

(Tomorrow is my mom’s birthday – Happy Birthday Mom – I Love You! This is a repost.) Psalm 145:4,5 “One generation will commend your works to another; they will tell of your mighty acts. They will speak of the glorious splendor of your majesty, and I will meditate on your wonderful works. My mom does not like the spotlight, so I know this blog post will make her uncomfortable. She and I are similar in our love and passion for God’s word but we are very different in personality. I’ve always been a sanguine and she has always been a […]

Vlog: How To Give Your Child An Effective Time-Out

Tedd Tripp in Shepherding a Child’s Heart (a book I highly recommend) says “You must not be embarrassed to be authorities for your children. You exercise authority as God’s agent.

You are both in the same boat – under the authority of God. When your child disobeys God by disobeying you – and we fail to be loving, kind, […]

Vlog: Children’s Object Lesson – Watch What You Say

Deuteronomy 6:7 says to teach our children God’s commands along the way of life. It is important that we train our children to watch what they say. We can save them from a lot of heartache by simply teaching them to think before speaking. (You’ll notice in the video that we had done a “dry run through” so the kids are a bit more “dramatic”and taking the words out of my mouth – so funny! I wish it were a little less scripted but you get the point!) James 3:5,6 says “The tongue is a small part of the body, […]

Vlog: Teaching Our Children About Friendships

I originally made this video with plans to run it on a Friday – but it’s Wednesday! So up it goes and I’m sorry for mentioning the wrong day on the video! (and the freeze frame of me below is even funnier than my mess up on the days lol!!!) Deuteronomy 6 says that parents are to teach our children along the way of life, the truth of God’s word. Sometimes we will be in formal settings reading God’s word to our children. But other times there will be opportunities just in the normal course of the day, to speak […]
