Slow Fade

Wednesday, August 21, 2013

For me personally, I have always found music to be extremely soothing.  Yes the instruments create wonderful melodies that can evoke every emotion under the sun, but personally, I find the words to be the make it or break it for all songs. As a result I can clearly remember many songs from my childhood.

This is one of those songs... (yes take a moment and listen...)

ChimpanSneeze

A child's giggle is so contagious. It can fill a room. It can make any day brighter, even if just for a moment. I have yet to meet a person who doesn't smile, just a little, when a child really, really starts to giggle.

For my boys, besides being tickled, they love a story that is just plain silly. I mean who doesn't really want to read something silly - how else can we explain all silly captioned pictures that fill facebook and pinterest on a daily, if not hourly basis?

And so I try to keep some just plain silly books on hand for those days when we could all use a good giggle session.

Children are made readers on the laps of their parents. Champansneeze - Reading List

Which is why when my mother discovered this hysterical kids book I knew I had to share it with all of you!

Discovering True Identity

Monday, August 19, 2013

Yes, I've always loved reading, but only recently have been willing to read outside of my comfort zone. Books have always given me an escape from the world I'm in, not that my world has ever been so horrible, but who doesn't like to take a vacation from their normal?

So when my friend Rosilind mentioned reading her father's book, I said alright. Granted, I might not have read it otherwise. I did find it interesting and full of information. I mean, who at some point in their lives doesn't struggle a little with identity issues?

Dr. Hackett has put together a book that shares information on who you are in Christ. And more importantly he points out how knowing who you are in Christ is essential in the process of following Christ completely.
