A big thanks to Blog Search Engine, who has reviewed this blog, and is featuring it today! The reviewer calls it “a gem of a blog for moms & housewives,” which is just so nice! If you’re interested in reading the review, click here.
For me, this section is important because we attend church regularly, and our daughter is active in Sunday School. This section contains the following:
-Lesson schedule, which also has Bee’s Sunday School leader’s contact information.
-Gospel Light’s “Family Time” magazines, which are sent home quarterly. These magazines have helpful parenting tips and family activities.
-Any church papers or Adult Sunday School materials that we pick up.
-A copy of our church’s 2008 Bible Reading Schedule.
If you don’t currently attend church regularly, or at all, I would like to encourage you to seek out a good, Bible-based church. The Bible instructs us to be in relationship with other believers, and the Church is where we come together to encourage and support each other as part of the Body of Christ:
“Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another—and all the more as you see the day approaching.” Hebrews 10:25 (NIV)
If you have not accepted Christ as your Savior, and would like to learn more about Jesus, ask me! I’ll be happy to answer any questions you have, and if I don’t know the answers, I’ll find them!

Well, I’m off to put Cakes down for a morning nap. She doesn’t usually take naps in the morning anymore, but she’s exceptionally crabby today. Bee had dance class and parent-teacher conferences last night, so Cakes didn’t get to bed until 7:30, which is very late for her.
Bee’s preschool teacher said that Bee will probably have a career in the arts, because she loves art projects, and has a natural flair for creative dramatics. We always call Bee a drama queen, so this comes as no surprise to us!
The next few days are very busy for me, so you probably won’t hear from me until Monday. Have a fun weekend!
