One blessed mommy

We got Hadden a Bible around the time of his birthday. He had wanted one (to be like Savannah), so we told him that he needed to learn how to read before we bought him one. I found a kids adventure Bible at the Thrift store for $1.98 and got it for him and he was very excited.

In the KidZone at church, they have competitions for who can find particular verses first, so our kids like to practice at home. However, last night, Hadden wanted to actually read the Bible. He turned to Joshua 3 and started reading! Can I tell you just how much that blessed me? Then, again, this morning he wanted to continue reading in Joshua 3. (By the way - some GOOD stuff in that chapter about the Israelites crossing the Jordan river).

Last week, he brought his Bible to me in the morning and wanted to read Genesis 1. I often read in the morning before I get out of bed and he wanted to join me.

This is definitely something I want to encourage :)

Savannah has also been a huge blessing to me on the soccer field. Being her coach has been so much fun - she listens to me and tries hard to play her best. She is really starting to "get" the idea of teamwork and it has been fun watching a few on my team work together. Some of them get it - some of them don't, but that is ok. I was a little worried that being her coach and Mom would be challenging, but she has learned to roll with it (for the most part). This Saturday is our last game, so hopefully we go out with a bang.



  1. Yah! Isn't it fun being a mom? Even when it's tough!!

  2. There's nothing like seeing your child have a heart for God and His Word. It's just fantastic. So warming, so refreshing, exciting all at once.

    Coaching-- fun, fun times. We coached our kids' soccer team years ago and loved it. Unfortunately, though, we've witnessed some parent-coaches coming down way too hard on their own children. It's something we tried to be very aware of, and guard against...

  3. Isn't it great when our kids want to know more about the Word and God. You are blessed. Thanks for stopping by my blog and wishing me luck. I hope you will come back and visit again. If you like music, come join in Then Sings My Soul Saturdays :)

  4. So Sweet...and your a good Mama! :)
