Growing In Your Walk (and a Giveaway!!)

We all want healthy habits for not only us, but our children as well. I want them to eat their veggies, drink water, fall in love with sports or some kind of exercise, and most importantly fall in love with reading their Bibles.

Establishing these routines prove to be a little bit more difficult than expected especially when life interrupts our best laid plans.

Finding a rhythm that works for your family and sticking to it, can be one of the best things as parents that you can do for your children.

They come to know what to expect and when to expect it, even if they do grumble and complain and act like they would rather be jumping off a cliff with little Johnny than sitting for a family meal or listening to a short devotional. :)

One of the great new Adventures in Odyssey products released this year is 90 Devotions for Kids, aimed at kids 8 to 12. This soft-cover book draws you in with illustrations, puzzles, and kid-friendly applications. It also includes a daily Bible verse, daily challenges, words of encouragement from different AIO characters, and more. Even if your kids aren’t already Adventures in Odyssey fans, they’ll enjoy these daily devotionals, and get to know the Odyssey crew along the way.

Sound good? There's more :)

To help promote the 90 Devotions for Kids, Tyndale is giving away one copy of the devotional to one of my lucky readers!!

Leave me a comment on this post and will pick a winner, Monday July 29th. Couldn't be any more simpler than that!

But wait, there's more!!

I hope through this series you have thought of some fun ways to connect with your kiddos through serving. If you missed the other two posts you can read them here:: When You Serve & Imagine

****Thanks for reading guys, I'm on vacation right now, but will be back soon.  The summer has a way of making you want to soak in each day and spend it with those you love. Love long lazy days of summer and trying to take in each one with my family.

Writing For A Cause

'Elephants - Serengeti National Park safari - Tanzania, Africa' photo (c) 2011, David Berkowitz - license:

Most writers want their words to have an impact and mean something to someone well, there is an organization named, CausePub, that brings together writers one cause at a time.

The cause, Blood:Water Mission. This organization raises money to bring clean water to parts of Africa that suffer with Hiv/Aids and desperately need clean water sources.

Here's how it works. Writers/ non writers submit a story and then it gets voted up. The stories with the most votes get included in the book, Couch Rebels. Half of the profits from the book are going directly to Blood:Water Mission.

For every book sold, Blood:Water Mission, will be able to provide three people with clean water for one year.
If you want to include a story of your own you have until the 20th to do so. And if you do or already did make sure you leave me a comment so that I can read and vote for yours.

The great thing about the voting process is that you can vote for as many stories as you want, but only once for each story. There are so many good ones!!

I finally worked up the courage and submitted my own, you can find my submission here, and if you want to vote for it that would be just awesome!:)

Writing for a cause, doesn't get much better than that, no?

So, what's your story? What are you waiting for?! Go tell it!

Make Me Fearless, Lord

I am starting to see a trend. When I ask God to grant me something, he makes me work for it. Like when I was new parent and desperately wanted/needed patience with my strong willed daughter, he didn't make her any less strong willed. On the contrary, he seemed to up the ante in the form of asthma attacks night upon sleepless night. My girl was not only strong willed and feisty, but she was now tired and sick…yay!

Can you picture it? Sleepy momma on a verge of a nervous breakdown because she didn't have any sleep, literally holding her toddler in a vice grip with one hand and the other opening her little girls mouth while simultaneously shoving a dropper full of medicine down her little red throat because her daughter vehemently hates taking medicine of any kind.
