You know, I was thinking today about how I love my kids so much but sometimes I'm so serious that I forget to smile at them and laugh with them or just be silly with them. Sometimes I'm so interested in training them right that I forget that this is supposed to be fun!

So, what do you with your kids to make them feel loved and make memories? This melancholy woman needs help!

Bible Memory

Here's a link to a great Bible memory system (with review included). We've been using this for the past month or two with the kids, and its been really great to help me not to have to think about what I am supposed to do each day!

Thanks Tara, for the idea!


Filling your tank

Hey, so if you've never read Leading on Empty by Wayne Cordeiro, I highly recommend it, especially if you are weary or tired, your family is involved in ministry, or you are learning how to rest.

I had been hearing about this talk for a long time, but I could never find it. Usually they sell their talks, but they decided to allow this one to be a free download because of its popularity.

Here's a free download of a talk entitled "Dead Leader Running" he gave at a Willow Creek Leadership Summit that kind of summarizes the message of his book.

What he says has been hugely beneficial for us!
