Our Visit to Texas

Sunday, January 28th, 2007

Next week we will be making a whirlwind trip to Texas for our Free Family Business Workshops. I wish we had time to visit our old friends, but we can’t. If you get a chance, come to one of our workshops (Houston, Austin, San Antonio) early or stay late. I would love to visit!


You Better Hurry – You Could Lose Your Spot

Sunday, January 28th, 2007

They didn’t believe me in my recent emails!
The FamilyEbiz Expo is on February 23rd and 24th… listen close.

Get trained for 2 days by the WORLD’S TOP INTERNET MARKETERS.

Here’s the deal…
For the past few weeks I told everyone that the hotel was selling out and some people thought it was a marketing ploy.

Boy… were they wrong – It did SELL OUT.

BUT…I just called the hotel and they are scrambling to find more rooms for us. They told me they had a few rooms they could offer at our group rate, but I can’t guaranteee how many rooms or how long they will last.

Believe me, you really want to be in the same hotel as the speakers and all of us…the really fun hotel!!!

San Antonio is one of the “funnest” places to take a family vacation. We’ve had 5-8 family vacations in San Antonio, so we
speak from experience. You can add on a few nights at our hotel at the special rate and enjoy the Riverwalk (one of my
favorites), Fiesta Texas, the Alamo…the list goes on & on. You will definitely enjoy San Antonio.

Nice Dinner at Home

Saturday, January 20th, 2007

When our children were younger, we would put them to bed early and have a very nice dinner at home. We couldn’t always afford a babysitter, so I would make a special meal and serve it on our china. It was fantastic to linger over a delicious meal and sweet fellowship with my husband.

This evening as I was preparing dinner, I decided to serve it on our china. It reminded me of those Saturday night dinners when the kids were already in bed. Times have changed and now we share a wonderful dinner, served on china, with our children. AND we enjoy every minute of it.

Steve & I can get away for a date night fairly easily these days. So, evenings with our kids, with a terrific meal, are special. They aren’t here forever, so I soak in every minute.

A Real Winter

Saturday, January 20th, 2007

We’ve lived in Idaho for 2 1/2 years and this is the first REAL winter we’ve had. It’s great!

I took a walk this morning and enjoyed fluffy white powder everywhere! Now, it’s snowing….again! I know many of you are probably sick & tired of snow because you grew up in the north. Since I’m from the south, I love it. Hey, we only have 1 more year up here so I’m enjoying every minute of it. So are my kids since they can go sledding!


I’ll post a picture when I figure out how to do that.

Saying “Thank You”

Friday, January 19th, 2007

Last night we had my daughter’s basketball over for dinner. It was entertaining as all 13 of them tried to squeeze around our breakfast table. Our dining room table is much bigger and has more chairs…go figure!

I was very impressed with all of them as they said “thank you” on their way out the door. Most of them remarked how they liked the food. I made the comment after they left how polite they all were. You see, everyone except our daughter, attends the public school. We often stereotype public school students, yet we need to take them individually. There are some good kids in the public school and I am glad my daughter is getting to know them. It expands her horizons and prepares her for adult life.
What I find most interesting is the fact that several of the kids from our church, don’t say “thank you” for a meal or for staying overnight. I realize that it is just two words, but it expresses appreciation and gratefulness.

Maybe it’s just because I’m from the south.


Consider One Another

Wednesday, January 17th, 2007

LET US consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another and so much the more as you see the Day approaching. Hebrews 10:24-25

These past few years God has impressed upon me the essential need to live as part of a body of believers, not just as an individual Christian. Although it is necessary to have personal quiet times, it is just as critical that you live as part of a larger group – your local church.

Your church should have an important role in your family’s spiritual life. I am not referring to the programs at your church, but the interaction and involvement that you have with other believers. Having families over for dinner, offering to babysit younger children, or changing the oil for a widow are all “natural” ways you can fellowship and encourage other believers.

These verses remind me of the importance of other Christians in our lives and the importance of meeting together as a church. When you consider others, take them into account. Another way of saying this is to “fix one eye’s or mind upon”. You are to be focused on others. You do not make decisions or plan your week based solely on what’s best for you or your family. You need to focus on others around you, too.

Of course there is a balance between your family and others. I’ve seen many families that reach out so much to others that they neglect their families. I’ve seen families who center everything on themselves and rarely sacrifice their time to do a good work for another family. Both are extremes. You need to find a balance.


ps. I have been working through Hebrews 10 as part of our Gold Raising Leaders Team. I thought I would post some excerpts because God is using these verses in my life. If you want to learn more about our Team of Team of Homeschool Moms, click here.

Walking on Ice

Wednesday, January 17th, 2007

Are you staying warm these days? Thank goodness for heaters! The past few nights have dipped below zero. This southern gal is enjoying the beautiful snow-covered town. Well, the cold does get to me sometimes. When I went for a walk on Saturday morning, I had to cut it short. My fingers were freezing. I’m sure it was below 10 that morning, but I really needed to walk.

I tried to go for a walk last Monday, but fell twice on the ice, in less than a block. So…I headed back home to exercise inside!

Today is absolutely gorgeous – sunshine and snow fills the area.


ps. I’m not as much of a klutz as it may sound. When I fell twice, it was 6:30am and the sun was not up. So, it was a bit difficult to see those thin layers of ice on the sidewalks. 🙂

More Football

Sunday, January 14th, 2007

It’s been many weeks since we didn’t have someone coming to our home after church or we were going to a friend’s home. Today is the perfect day for football and pizza. Snow covers the ground and twinkly snowflakes fall…a great day to be insde, relaxing.

My Seahawks didn’t win, but New Orleans did 🙂 I am rooting for San Diego, even though I like Tom Brady of the Patriots.

Do you relax, taking a break from your normal responsibilities? Sometime sit is hard for me to do so, but it is very worthwhile.

Top 10 Best Books I Read in 2006

Saturday, January 6th, 2007

I just read a list of Best Book Blogs of 2006 and decided to share my favorite books of 2006. Here goes:

MY TOP 10 BOOKS – 2006

Pearl Maiden, H.Rider Haggard
Lysbeth, H.Rider Haggard
The Brethren, H.Rider Haggard

Can you tell I found a new favorite author? I can’t wait to read King Solomon’s Mine by Haggard in 2007.

The Scarlet Letter, Nathaniel Hawthorne

I hadn’t read this since high school. At that time I was so appalled at the adultery in the book, I couldn’t see the transformations taking place. This time I read this with a Biblical persepctive and thoroughly enjoyed it.

Up From Slavery, Booker T. Washington

I learned so much from this biography and still want to write a review listing the many life-changing lessons.

Duncan’s War, Douglas Bond
Ivanhoe, Sir Walter Scott
Mary Emma and Company, Ralph Moody

Great books we read with the family

Man in Black, Johnny Cash

Even though Johnny Cash was a staple in my house growing up, I wasn’t that interested. After watching “Walk the Line”, I wanted to read more about Cash. I was impressed with June’s role of saving him from himself and the way God used June to bring Johnny to salvation. I read both of his biographies, as well as June’s. This was my favorite.

Amusing Ourselves to Death, Neill Postman

When my daughter finished this book, she told me she knew I liked this book because it had many ideas I express regularly. I guess she knows me pretty well.

What are your favorite books of 2006?
