Are You Building God's Kingdom or Your Own? - I love Lori's reminders. (Always Learning)
"Our lives down here are short. God commands that we make disciples. Are you making disciples? Are you using your time, talents and gifts to make your home a place where Jesus is welcomed? Are you making sure your children are well-trained in the ways of the Lord? Are you loving your husband and being faithful to him even if it is hard so those around you can see the power of God in your life? Are you spending your later years ministering to those younger than you and helping them be the wives and mothers that God has called them to be? Are you using your time, talents and money building God's kingdom or are you using it to build your own?"5 Simple Things You Can Do to Make Home Sweeter - Saving this to review later!

From the Bookshelf
Continuing my journey through children's literature that I missed the first time through....
The Middle Moffat
Vintage childhood tales from the perspective of a young girl. Light, easy, fun. Very enjoyable! I am now reading others in the series.
Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH
I can't believe I went through my entire childhood without this book. Delightful! Reminiscent of Redwall and other animal-adventure series.
A Brief Pause
I don't need to tell you all that the Duggar family has been in the news lately. And I'm not going to write about the situation, because all of the various angles have been covered repeatedly.
But would you join me in praying for this sweet family?
And if you'd like to send a note of encouragement, you can send them an email to this address or physical note to this address.
Dear readers, I apologize that I have not been around as often as I'd like (or even answering comments within a reasonable time frame). With the start of our school year, I have been so busy... and so tired. Teaching, grading, and keeping up with the children and the house are keeping me busy from sun-up to sun-down. I miss you all and will be around when I can!
Love to you all, dear friends!
