Ally lists 10 Things You Should Be Tracking in Your Prayer Journal. (I realize that sometimes just finding a few minutes to pray every day is challenge enough! But on those days when you have a little extra time, I like the idea of keeping a prayer journal and including some of the items on Ally’s list. It’s encouraging to look back over my journals, rejoice in answered prayers, and remember how God met my needs in the past.)

Here’s a tradition I would like to have started with our girls when they were little – but I think we might do it for the first time this year! From the Money Saving Sisters, it’s The Cutest Christmas Eve Gift for Your Kids.

I really appreciated the post on why mothers are so tired, and it’s so true. I’m not exhausted because I’ve run on the treadmill or because I get up so early to do it. It’s the never-ceasing mental energy required to deal with my children. It’s worth it, but it’s so draining!
A prayer journal sounds like a neat idea. Maybe I’ll start one — one day — when I’m not so busy…. 🙂
That’s a neat perspective on eating and food!
With five children, it’s neat to see the different ways each one “blooms,” and they’re so different from each other!
Yes – even with just two children, it’s so interesting to see how they grow and mature in different ways. And while I thought the physical energy required to parent my kids when they were little was great, the mental energy required as they get older goes far beyond that!! 🙂
Omigosh!!!! “15 Ways to Glorify God in Your Eating” was AWESOME!!!!!!!
