This weekend Alex and I were blessed to in the opportunity to attend a FamilyLife "Weekend to Remember" Conference held at the Embassy Suites in Rogers, AR (may 15th-18th). We even got to stay in the hotel and get away from LIFE completely. In the words of Mark Schatzman (one of the speakers) it was like hitting PAUSE on our life....just enough to focus on our relationship with God and each other!


One of the many things I learned and value is a thought on the statment, "Marriage is 50/50." This is to imply it is a partnership where everyone is to equally give and take. That everyone shares the load and works together. While, impart, that is mostly true so people tend to look at it as, "PK, I see how I have more than done my share but where is my spouse doing their part? I think I can take it down a bit and they can pick up the slack in order to do their half." WHILE the other spouse is thinking the same thing and before you know it, both parties have done their share of backing off and now on one is doing anything!

Now what if instead of things it is a 50/50 partnership, we all thought of it like a chance of service to the ones we love and we GAVE IT ALL WE'VE GOT. Then we take on a new challenge/statement of.

Give it your best and see what happens. Give your best to your husband, besides doesn't he deserve that?! And see what happens. If we are in a consistant Relationship with our GOD (who never leaves nor forsakes us) and we are giving it our BEST, isn't our GOD going to be faithful through your husband to do the same for you?! YES, our God is that BIG!
.....more to come

It was Alex's first time to see the play and we have been singing "If I were a rich man" most of the day.....

The 1, 2, 3 of being a Godly Mother

This Sunday, yesterday, was Mothers Day. Robert Cupp share some basic and strong principles we can gain from 3 wonderful women in the Bible.
  1. From Hannah in 1 Samuel 1, we see that a godly mother trust God with her children, Prays to God for her children & deadicates her Children to God.
  2. Mary teaches us in Luke 1:26-33, a Godly Mother humbly submits hersefl to God's Will/Word/Ways.
  3. Eunice shows us in Acts 16, a Godly Mother believes, lives & transmits(passes along) "The WORD" to her children.

What a Blessing and a Legacy we can give our children if we strive to the above for our families and future families.
