Hope you have a great week!

Wife of Rob

Good morning!

I so needed this's so nice to be back! I've had so much "life" happening!

Hope you are having a great start to your week!



I love the thought of the copy guy at Staples reading your scripture cards. Planting seeds!

Lisa notes...

Sometimes it's hard for me to accept help, too. Other times I welcome it. ;-)

I love how you're applying Ecclesiastes to memory work with your daughters. And here we all are helping each other, too. God's Word is so rich.

My verses are here:


As I was reading your post this morning, I was reminded of how much Memory Monday is 'helping' me to stay on track with memorizing my verses.

MM is up after much sickness!


I have added this scripture to our fridge for the week. It is timely, because my sons and I are working on remembering that each of of us is stewards over our home.

They are 12 and 13, and I believe they are finally getting a handle on happily helping around the house.


Love that you brought up that memorizing is a discipline. Disciplines are not always fun, but necessary. Thanks for doing MM.

Have a great week!


I'm so completely not disciplined in my 'memory work'...trying hard to be more disciplined...
