that they admonish the young women to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, homemakers, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be blasphemed.

Titus 2:4-5

Family Time

Family time can be such a great time. But all too often family time is thought of as sitting around the tv, or playing on the computer, or with video games. I would like to put a challenge out there. Spend some family time together with the electronics off. Set aside one day or one evening a week, that is electronic free. Here are some ideas. Take a family of my favorites. Look around at God's creation and talk about what God created, and how amazing it is, how blessed we are to enjoy such a beautiful world. This can also be a learning can teach about the local trees and birds etc... Another fun thing if you have small children, take them to the bookstore and let them buy some books. Spend the evening reading. If you are looking to be money conscious go to a used bookstore. You might be lucky enought to be able to trade some old books for some new ones. Another favorite thing to do in our house is to play games. You can even let your little ones make up their own games. They will think that it is great that you are so interested in the game they made. One last thing...go to the park let the kids play and enjoy a great picnic lunch. Your kids are only little for so long so get out there and have fun with them.
