Books I am Reading

 I have had this book for a while and not really read much of it. I am at a point now that I NEED all the biblical help I can get with training and disciplining my son. This is an excellent book. I found I was doing some things right and that I also need to work on some things. It is great because it helps you with discipline at different ages. Some much needed encouragement and focus.
You can gohere to see it.

 This is a book that shows research and gives plans for sleep with babies and up. I have only read a little, but this is needed as well right now. My two year old has decided to sin and rebel against sleep. Which as you can imagine is not good for anyone involved. He is overtired and that makes it even more difficult. I am reading to get him back on track for good sleeping habits. It started with the freedom of a toddler bed and has just escalated from there. He used to sleep 12 -13 hours at night and we are down to 7-8. That drastically has affected his behavior. Keeping him in bed at night is another issue. So if you want to know more about how often your child should sleep and other information this is a great tool. Here is the book.

 I am also reading this for fun. My husband gave it to me a while ago. I love Jane Austen. Peter Leithart does a great job of looking into her novels.

How To Go To Jail For A Speeding Ticket

How Horrible!! What was he thinking?

Well I did it

I finally did what I was not wanting to do. I joined facebook. I have debated doing this for a while now and decided it was time. I had several reasons for joining and several for not wanting to join. 
Reasons for:
1. To keep up with people that I do not have a lot of time to see or talk to.
2. To try and stay up-to-date with things going on on-line that my children may one day be a part of.
3. To try and understand why everyone loves it.
Reasons against:
1. Not a lot of extra time.
2. I want to be more intentional with people face to face and not just read about their life.
3. It will be something else that I have to figure out.

So I thought about the good/bad and realized that I am just going to have to try and see for myself what it is all about and hopefully it will be useful for staying "connected" to those I really want to minister to. Hopefully I will figure it all out.

Three Years and Counting

Yesterday was our anniversary. We have been married three years! It seems like only yesterday. God has shown me so much in these past three years...I will save that for another post!  

My love gave me three different sets of flowers!
