We're over the flu...

... but I still have the blogging blahs. I'm still reading and commenting here and there and I'll be back eventually, but... meh. I got nothing to say. Anything y'all want to know? Stories you want to hear? Questions you've been dying to ask me if I'd only just shut up long enough to hear them?

Now's your chance :)

Yes, I am requesting a post on training children. Not discipline as much as raising children in a Christian home and teaching them certain biblical principles like.... abstinence, honoring father and mother, learning to worship and walk with God etc. I've had lots of conversations, and it's really been on my heart lately how many people (and shockingly, even how many Christians) think that many of these ideas are outdated or unrealistic for their children.

This concerns me and not being raised in a Christian home, I already worry about how to teach my kids these things in a way that is effective. It scares me even more to think that most parents out their won't be teaching their kids the same things. It scares me even MORE that I have to, then, send my children out into the world with people who profess to believe the same thing, but now think we are in an age where what you profess can be different than what you actually do.

Did that make any sense?

Glad to hear that you're all feeling better. Any advice for a mom who is trying to get my son's head out of the clouds when he's reading a book? I need to help him with his reading comprehension skills. He's a visual, math kind of guy. Unlike me, words don't excite him. I know that there's a reader in him somewhere :)

I'm the same way. Meh. I'm sure there is something I could say. But I'm just not feeling it and being busy and dealing with sick children doesn't help.

Glad you guys are on the mend though!
