Bible Reading: Micro or Macro?

Christians disagree about Bible reading. Of course we all agree that a Christian should be reading their Bible every day... but how should they go about doing it?

On the one side, you could cover the entire Bible in a year, reading multiple chapters a day.

On the other side, many believers love to focus on just a small passage daily, really soaking up and meditating on a few verses.

Shopping for gifts can be THE WORST. With an endless sea of options, the limitlessness of Amazon, and kids who already have everything... it can feel impossible to narrow down your options and pick something a child {and their parents!} will love.

Also the worst? Standing at the library and trying to grab titles from a crowded shelf for your toddler's enjoyment... while said toddler is running around like a banshee, the baby is starting to lose it, and you really need to pee but can't stomach the thought of juggling all of your children in a public restroom.

Being a stay-at-home mom to small children, all of your days can run together in a blur. It's sometimes hard to stay motivated, measure progress, and be productive.

Having a basic schedule or routine is a giant game changer!

Provided you know that shortly after you develop the perfect routine, something will change- a baby gives up a nap, kids start school, your children are suddenly starving an hour earlier than normal every day... something. And when that something changes, you're going to have to start over again on figuring out your best new routine.

Great Picture Books for the Construction Obsessed Child

My son, like many 3 year old boys, really loves construction. Digging in the backyard with his Tonka trucks, digging in a cookie sheet of cornmeal with his little toy trucks, and reading a good story about vehicles on a construction site are a few of his favorite things.

If your little guy {or gal!} is a big fan of construction trucks, you'll want to check out the list of our five favorites I'm sharing over at My Joy Filled Life today.

Each book has great illustrations, pleasant language patterns, and is guaranteed to entertain kids {also mom approved!}. I hope you like them :)!

Be a True Friend to Your Husband

"Happy is the man who finds a true friend, and far happier is he who finds that true friend in his wife." Franz Schubert

My husband just asks for something simple, and inwardly I heave a giant sigh. Everyone in our house needs me- to eat, to hold, to find that missing thing, to listen, to clean, to go to the bathroom... my husband being excluded from the last category, of course.

But you see what I mean. The five and under crowd are a demanding lot. I have three of them in my house, so daily experience has schooled me. They all need me for quite a lot every single day. Every single night too, come to think of it...

Sometimes I'm guilty of viewing them all as leeches, with my husband as the biggest one who certainly doesn't need me for his very existence like the kids do... so can't he get along just fine on his own? Doesn't he realize that I've already been sucked dry?
