Brooke says These Are the Things Your Kids Should See You Do.
Kari asks Is Your Daughter Emotionally Ready for Instagram?
I enjoyed the Grit ‘n’ Grace Girls podcast this week on How to Cut the Crazy and Balance Your Digital Life. And Jamie Ivey’s The Happy Hour episode #189 with Tova Sido had me literally crying in the car. Her story is for everyone, but if you’ve ever lost a baby, it will resonate deeply. Her testimony to God’s faithfulness and the way He brought her through many trials blessed my heart.
My husband and I are big fans of Mexican food, so these 5 Ingredient Beef Enchiladas may be coming to our supper table soon!
Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
“These Are the Things Your Kids Should See You Do” = yes!
“Is Your Daughter Emotionally Ready for Instagram?” = WOW!!! This is FANTASTIC!!!!! Annelise is probably the only girl she knows without a phone (I *want* her to have one for us to text reminders & updates with all her cheer & activities, but she is not responsible with material things; she’ll lose or break it, so she’s on an old iPod trial run right now.) She only does Pinterest & digital coloring book apps, but I know the Instagram convo will be fast approaching…
Sounds like you’re approaching the whole phone thing very sensibly!! Our daughters got call/text type phones at 13 – the kind that have the slide-out keyboard. One of them (I won’t say which 😉 would drop that thing on concrete or pavement rather often, but it had such a thick case, it never impacted it!
I really enjoyed the post about what our children should see us doing. I remember an older mother telling a bunch of us younger women (we weren’t even mothers yet, although we were married) that our children needed to see us read our Bibles and pray. That has stuck with me over the years, but I appreciate every single reminder I get because it’s just that important.
I’m so glad that my oldest child does not want her own phone and does not want to get on the computer. I can only imagine how much less stress I have in my life right now because she isn’t constantly complaining about not having one. 🙂
Since I typically do my Bible study and prayer time before my girls are up in the mornings, I do need to make it more of a priority to let them see me doing those things at other times.
