Jessica and I put Lily in this pretty blue dress for Sunday. She looked so sweet in it!
I'm just loving my little Lily!
I didn't blog yesterday (that's weird). I just didn't have much to say. It was Steve's day off, but he ended up going to work from 12:00 to 8:30 p.m. So I had to TaeKwon Do by myself. I dropped the older kids off and then went to get the oil changed in the rig, ran some errands and grabbed a decaf coffee and hot chocolate for the little kids. It turned out fine. Came home and made a new chicken recipe.
Super Moist Chicken
1/3 cup mayo 2 TBS of tomato sauce
Mix together and dip chicken tenderloins in it. Then dip into bread crumbs. Bake at 350 till they aren't pink. Doesn't take that long. Very easy!
We homeschooled in the morning as well. I got everything done by history. But I loved the fact that at night we were able to read "Hank the Cowdog". I love reading this book to the kids. It is so funny! You can really play up the voices and make it ten times funnier. I had to force the kids to go to bed!
Today is Mom's Morning Out. I will leave all of the kids here with Steve except Lily. It will be nice to get out. I will homeschool in the afternoon. Should be a mellow day. Steve will probably try to get overtime in the afternoon.
Steve and I watched "Yes Man". Don't bother. I can not believe how much cussing there was in a PG-13 movie! Yikes, two F-Words, and lots of others, and the sexual content was appalling. Also, "Australia" was not very good either. I didn't bother finishing it.
We are watching a lot of "I Love Lucy". The kids and I just love it. I can not believe what good clean fun it is. It is so refreshing! We can get them off Netflix.
Steve's making breakfast and Lily wants to be fed, so I better scoot!
"Show me your way , oh Lord, teach me Your paths; guide me in Your truth and teach me for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in You all day long." -Psalm 25:4-5 My Mission for this BLOG is to bring glory to God as I share what He is teaching me as I raise my children for Him. I want to encourage mothers all around the world to hang in there! Motherhood is tough, challenging and gritty. But through Christ's strength and the support of other moms who are in the trenches, I will keep pressing towards the goal to raise Godly children. Please feel free to leave comments. It blesses me so much! You can also email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I am a Stay-At-Home mother of six children. We LOVE having a large family. My first love, is Christ and the Words of the Bible. My passion is to teach my children about the Lord. I love to watch my children discover their own faith in God. My husband has been a firefighter for over 20 years and is now an officer. I am very proud of him. I long to be a Titus 2 woman who encourages other women to love their husbands and children and to thrive in their homes, not just survive.
The noblest calling in the world is that of a mother. True motherhood is the most beautiful of all arts, the greatest of all professions. She who can paint a masterpiece or who can write a book that will influence millions deserves the plaudits and admiration of mankind; but she who rears successfully a family of healthy, beautiful sons and daughters whose immortal souls will be exerting an influence throughout the ages long after paintings shall have faded, and books and statues shall have been destroyed, deserves the highest honor that man can give. -David O. McKay Motherhood is the one thing in all the world which most truly exemplifies the God-given virtues of creating and sacrficing. Though it carries the woman close to the brink of death, motherhood also leads her into the very realm of the fountians of life and makes her co-partner with the Creator in bestowing upon eternal spirits mortal life. -David O McKay We can't form our children on our own concepts; we must take them and love them as God gives them to us. -Johann Wolfgang von Goethe Lo, children are a heritage of the Lord; and the fruit of the womb is his reward. -Psalm 127:3 The mother's heart is the child's schoolroom -Henry Ward Beecher The art of mothering is to teach the art of living to children. -Elaine Heffner People who say they sleep like babies usually don't have them. -Leo J. Burke
To be a mother is a woman's greatest vocation in life. She is a partner with God. No being has a position of such power and influence. She holds in her hands the destiny of nations, for to her comes the responsibility and opportunity of molding the nation's citizens. -Spencer W. Kimball
