Traditions to Treasure
A few years ago I enjoyed reading Noel Piper's book "Treasuring God In Our Traditions". This gave way to a new focus in our home. Hubby and I try to bring the Gospel into everything we do in our home. Of course we are not always successful but we try. We do Bible time and Catechism questions every night with the kids. We do an Advent Calendar in December to count down the days to our Saviors birthday. Easter has us baking a resurrection cake on Easter that the kids love to decorate with an empty tomb. Reformation Day better known as Halloween we love to watch "Luther". These are just a few of the traditions we are trying to create in our home. Hubby's Aunt has a really neat Tradition in her home. She has a Miniature case full of various items. Each item represents a time in their families lives where God has shown His lovingkindess, and grace to them. When someone notices the items and asks about them, that gives them the opportunity to share Christ. I just think that that is a wonderful reminder to always be looking for the ways God moves in our lives. Since I saw hers I have been on the hunt for a miniature shelf of my own. I would love to hear your traditions NOT just holiday traditions.
I am a Twenty something Stay @ Home Mom in the state of Kentucky. I am a originally from FL. I am the blushing bride of a bold preacher of the word of God. My hubby and I have been married since 2004 and the Lord has grown our love for one another and our friendship everyday. He is my Best Friend! I am also the proud parent of the 3 cutest kiddos in the world!
GJ - My little Girl has my husbands inquisitive nature and my...everything else. She is so creative and silly. I enjoy just watching her play, to see the funny things she comes up with.
JA - my big boy has given me so much appreciation for how fun little boys are! They are missing a filter. The filter that says, "this might hurt", or "I shouldn't do that".
PM - My baby number 3 who is so sweet and I am cherishing every minute of him being a baby! His smile can light up a room, not to mention his hair!
My husbands drives me to know and love my Lord Jesus Christ more, and my kids reveal the love the Father has for me everyday.
