Evolution: Fiction

Something cannot be made from nothing. Only a Creator God can do that!

This is a great Bible study for kids about creation:

Psalm 119:11
11 I have stored up your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you.

If our minds are not washed in the Word, they will be washed by the world.

Tincture time!

Double-E Immune Booster - organic - Bulk Herb Store

Gonna be placing my order here soon so I can get my tincture brewing for this up and coming cold and flu season. It takes 3 weeks to make a batch. This stuff is great because it actually BOOSTS the immune system so when we come in contact with germs and bacteria/viruses our bodies can effectively fight it off. At the first onset of symptoms, start taking the tincture.

Can't wait to get our brew on!

This breaks my heart...

People may laugh at this comic strip, but it's actually a shining example of society's anti-child attitude (one that's even crept into the church). At it's core is the belief that they are a burden. This attitude is NOT of God! Children are made in the image of God. He loves them. They are a blessing!

Are they hard work? An emphatic YES! But the hardest part about them: having to deal with my own sin and dying to my selfishness. I can't live for "just me" anymore. Therein lies a HUGE part of them being a blessing: in having them, we have to die to self, and our sanctification deepens. That is very pleasing to the Lord!

These are by far one of the coolest art toys our kids have received. Literally HOURS of play.

I gotta get some more of these!

Bug trap

With all the summer produce that's been going through our home lately we've had a TON of fruitflies.

So annoying.

I've tried a number of traps- but I have FINALLY found a super easy, super effective recipe.

Fill a dish with:
white vinegar

1 T of sugar
approx 5 drops liquid dish soap
Stir until well blended.
Set out near trouble spots.

Happy trapping! :-)

This is HILARIOUS! It's seriously become a family favorite! Brings a smile to our hearts.

This has been many months in coming, but I have finally decided to leave the world of Facebook. It has been a big decision. I hope to one day unfold in a future post as to why. MANY reasons.

But in my leaving FB I will be returning to my blogs. This one is public. But if any if you would like to see my family blog (which is private) please email me at growthasawifeandmom(@)yahoo(dot)com and I'll email you an invite.

So looking forward to returning to my blogs. Bear with me as I try to organize things. There will be many back logs as I try to put older posts on here.
