Hey Mamas! Would you like a fun and easy idea that sure to bring a lot of laughter to your home? Try hosting a “Rude Friday!” Most every Friday night, when our kids were growing up, we ordered pizza, invited a couple of their friends over, and settled in for a fun evening. Our whole family would chew with our mouths open, burp, talk with our mouths full, and keep our elbows on the table. The understanding was that they had to be polite and use good table manners the other days of the week, but when Friday came around, it was all-out loud, impolite fun!! Our kids still remember those nights and how much fun they were! Try it this week! Your family will LOVE it!
I remember going into my daughter's room night after night and kneeling beside her bed and crying my heart out to God because I didn’t know how to be a Christian mom; I felt like I had no idea what I was doing. You know what? God is so faithful! He answered me and simply said, “Spend time with me, Deb.” And so I did. I began arising 15-30 minutes earlier each day so I could read my Bible and pray, and plan out my day with my family.
If there was one thing I would love to share with you is that God is personal and loves you as you are. You don’t have to be perfect to be loved by our amazing God! Come as you are! His loving presence can be practically known and experienced. He is not a God who is far away, He is near and easily found. He longs for you to come to Him!
