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.

Today we’re working on the Church and Sunday School section of the Home Management Guide.

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!

A reader requested that I post my monthly, quarterly, semi-annual, and annual tasks from the Schedules section of my HMG, so here they are:

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!

  1. What is your religion? I’m just wondering because I can really relate to a lot of what you are talking about, but I have my own religion and so I’m just wondering if maybe we have the same.

    • Kayla, I’m a non-denominational Christian. I believe the Holy Bible to be the inerrant word of God, and that Jesus Christ is the one true God.
