Time to Eat!

Jeremiah 15:16 says, “When your words came, I ate them; they were my joy and my heart’s delight, for I bear Your name, O LORD God Almighty.”

Go Where?

Go Where?

Welcome back to the Mom blog in this new year of 2017!

Last year, we talked about being “On our mark.” To decide to make Bible Time the top priority in our child’s training and education. We also talked about “Getting Set.” To get ready to put this decision into practice.

A Tug of War

This blog post could be the most important blog post I share.

If you only read one post, read this one. Here is my story:

“It was an ordinary day in the Thomsen household, as our three little girls and I sat around the kitchen table. My husband had left for work and our girls and I were enjoying Bible Time together. We had established a routine of spending week day morning hours, singing, reading the Bible, memorizing Bible verses, praying, and enjoying simple activities relating to these areas.

But on this particular morning I found myself experiencing a new emotion.
