CORRECTION

(This post is a short summary from the GKGW materials and Moms Notes presentation by Joey and Carla Link). In our class (Growing Kids God's Way) we talked about how we are to give admonishment when a child needs correction that stems from his childish behaviours, and the 4 tools of correction for behaviours that stem from  foolishness. Childish behaviours in this… Continue reading CORRECTION

Menu Planning

One of the biggest roles I have assumed the moment I land my eyes on the home is to be a great chef and provider of everything yummy and healthy for the family.

Speak, O God

Have you ever wondered what is the one important thing a woman and a mum must do in the myriads of her varying roles and demands of life? I am increasingly convinced that the one ingredient to a day well-lived is having a stillness to tune in to the voice of the Holy Spirit. There are… Continue reading Speak, O God

From Rejection to Redemption

Ever lived through internal pain? Ever been stigmatised in life? It’s painful, and not many survived through it. It’s probably one of the worst pains that one could experience in life cos it's  deeply ingrained. It’s the kind of pain that doesn’t take a physical manifest. Because it’s on the inside.... and mightily hurtful. There is… Continue reading From Rejection to Redemption

PLAY

Today I find myself thanking God for the privilege of staying home with the kids, enjoying precious moments and witnessing all their "firsts" in life. So much is happening in what looks like 'just' an ordinary day... These little minds, these charming smiles, these tiny bodies...they are... growing, evolving... into Somebodies...one day... with full personalities, full characteristics and a… Continue reading PLAY

Count Your Stars

How many of you have ever gone star-gazing? Have you ever tried counting the stars in the sky before? Any recorded success? (*Smile*) Some of my best moments in an otherwise unspectacular day would be when I go on evening walks with the kids. Invariably I would turn my gaze upward and look at the… Continue reading Count Your Stars

The Canvas of Our Lives

If you are given a chance to rewrite the pages of your life, what would it look like?

Mastering the Basics

"That which we persist in doing becomes easier - not that the nature of the task has chafed but our ability to do has increased..." (Ralph Waldo Emerson ) How true is the quote above!

CHORES

Chore is not a dirty four letter word! Doing chores as a family helps develop sensitivity and tenderness towards others. Incorporating chores as part of your training reaps much benefit both for you and your child. Doing chores with kids may not always be convenient. Especially when you first begin. It takes longer and you have to… Continue reading CHORES

Ziplock Character Training Bag

In Growing Kids God's Way we have been learning on the importance of character training in the home.

We… Continue reading Ziplock Character Training Bag
