5 Minutes, Please!
As I sat on my porch swing with my coffee and God's word in hand, a little face kept peeking out the door and another little face out the window. "5 minutes, please," I pleaded. They continued to try to get my attention as I tried to spend just a little bit of time with God. "Please let Mommy have just 5 minutes with God."
Usually, they are pretty good about giving me my quiet time, but this particular morning was different. I didn't get the time with God that I wanted, but at least the girls were observing what is important to their Mommy. God- first- in the morning. So even though I didn't get to pray or read as much as I wanted, at least my girls could see that my time with God is important. When we read God's word and pray, we are setting an important example for our children.
Welcome! I'm Jen, the mother of 3 beautiful blessings! My little man- age 3 years, Peanut-age 8, and Sunshine- age 10. Celebrated 17 years of marriage this past year- Wow! Enjoy exploring and creating with my little ones and those I care for part-time. Taking a break from my Elementary Education career to have more time with my family.
This site is dedicated to one of Abby's first teachers. God uses her daily to touch the lives of children (her Shining Stars). She touches the lives of grownups, too. She taught me to pray not only for the big things in my children's lives, but also for their daily boo boos! We are very blessed to have her in our lives!
