"R" is for He is Risen and Rainbow!

Jesus Is Risen!
Spend time everyday reading with your kids about the death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ! And this is the most important event of our history as Christians.

 Matthew 28:1-10 Mark 16:1-10; Luke 24:1-11; John 20:1-18
'After Jesus died some of his friends laid his body in a big tomb. They sealed it shut with a large round stone. Soldiers guarded the tomb.'

'Three days later the earth shook. An angel of the Lord came down from heaven and pushed the stone away from the tomb. The angel sat on the stone.'

'When the soldiers saw the angel, they fell to the ground.'


' "Go and tell Peter and the other disciples that Jesus is alive!" '

'On their way, the women saw Jesus. They fell to their knees and worshipped him. Jesus smiled and said, "Go tell the others that I will see them in Galilee." So Mary ran to tell the disciples.'
My kids love this simple Bible, but I also believe its great to read the full story so they understand the bigger picture.

R is Rainbow
I was very excited when I realized that Easter week was the same as "R" week for the Letter of the Week curriculum that my Little Engineer is following. It's a pre-K curriculum that pairs a letter from the alphabet with a theme ie. R is for Rainbow and because Easter was this Sunday R is for "He is Risen."

There are approximately 7-9 activities per day, or an activity for each work box.

A Mother's Prayer

Lord bless my home and anyone who enters. Lead me daily so that I am always aware of You! Whether educating my kids, cooking or cleaning may my attitude always be that of a servant. Give me the words to guide my children to You, to know You, Your character and love You, Lord. Please teach to have patience and to always be learning. Lord mold me through each stage of life so I am continually growing and pursuing You no matter what. Lord I want to be a great mom and wife and I know that if I look only to You for help that I can accomplish this, the love for my family that I desire to show them. Lord I'm amazed by You and I love You. Amen.

Full of Life, Full of Love

"The spirited child-often called "difficult" or "strong-willed"--possesses traits we value in adults yet find challenging in children. Research shows that spirited kids are wired to be "more"-by temperament, they are more intense, sensitive, perceptive, persistent, and uncomfortable with change than the average child." It seems as though we have three, and they are very much like me. What does this mean? I need to be compassionate, consistent, confident, controlled, all with a gentle yet firm approach. Yes my plate is full.

Motherhood: A rigorous training ground

What an awesome responsibility mothers have to their children. Cultural stereotypes promote the idea that giving birth miraculously endows women with kindness, compassion, and goodness. But we all know better. Many of us can witness that we are made more aware of our weaknesses and impatience after becoming mothers than we were before. Godliness and generosity are not prerequisites of giving birth; they are characteristics that God hones and whittles into our character over time. Motherhood provides a rigorous training ground where we can display practice and model the disciplines of love, honesty, and compassion before our children. --Rebecca Laird
