Seven Secrets to Power Praying: A Review

Wednesday, April 09, 2014

I wasn't really a social butterfly growing up.  I'd find a few friends, and was more comfortable in the small circle of friends that resulted.  Then as a mom I started to crave adult conversation, and that desire for just a couple of close friends started to change.  I simply wanted to converse with people... so I started making more acquaintance level friends simply to have people to hang out with for an hour here or there... Granted some of these "acquaintance" friends have become super close friends.

All this to say that in order to build real relationships we have to converse with people on a regular basis.  We crave that interaction... but why?

It seems safe to say that the Creator designed us so that we would crave relationships, and that relationships would need regular communication between the parties.

The next question would have to be, then how do we communicate with our Lord?  Obvious answer: Praying....  But how do we do that?

Children's Corner: The Wildest Brother

Tuesday, April 08, 2014

I am an older sister to one brother.  And growing up, we didn't always see eye to eye.  I always figured it was simply because we were so different... He was into art, I was into books.  I wanted things to be ordered and in their places, he wanted to see things in a different light every day.  Now of course we get along great.  So to be honest, when my boys came alone I was curious how that dynamic would be, as it is so different from my own experience.

Luckily, they are the best of friends and love being around each other.  The oldest hasn't reached the point where he wants to be with other friends more than his brother, and the youngest simply wants to be like his brother.
