Family Time: Games to Bring the Whole Family Together




"Let them be happy, encourage all innocent joy, provide pleasant games for them, romp and play with them; be a child again among them. Then God's blessing will come upon your home, and your children will grow up sunny-hearted, gentle, affectionate, joyous themselves and joy-bearers to the world.”  

~JR Miller,  The Christian Family




Are you looking for ways to pass the extra time home with the children?

We have been tackling various home projects around here and getting several needed things done.

But while we also are working around the house we also take the time to play hard too. (smile)

Last night the kids roasted marshmallows by bonfire while they burned some logs and branches that had accumulated on our property.






I am so grateful for family time together. There were great memories to be made from something as simple as the bonfire and they spent hours together enjoying each other's company.

Our kids also like to play games with each to pass the time. So I thought I would quickly share a list of games since I noticed several ladies online this past week asking for ideas to add to their collections.

One of our favorite games that we had gotten recently this past year was this one called Suspend:



This is what it looks like up close:



It is so much fun because when you add a piece on it completely moves the entire thing and you have to be careful not to knock them all down! They got this for Valentine's Day earlier this year.

Here are a few more favorite ideas:

Dutch Blitz
Uno & Uno Flip
Apples to Apples
Bocci
Puzzles
Connect Four
Monopoly
Life
Cards
Chess
Checkers
Mancala
Oregon Trail Card game
Scattegories
Battleship
Phase 10
Farkle
Cribbage
Spot it
Catch Phrase
Scrabble
Mastermind
Catan
Blokus
Ticket to Ride
Othello
Banana Grams
Phase 10
5 Crowns
Battle Sheep
Quarto
Qwirkle
Clue
Candyland
Sequence
Pictionary
Telestrations
Twister
Cornhole
Foosball Table

He is a Refuge in the Storm




This year has been a doozy, hasn't it?

Who would have known what this year would have brought forth...only the Lord knew.

I know there has been a lot of worry and fear for the last few months for many of you.

Staying Home: Christian Movies to Watch



We have been given the gift of time with this quarantine.  Yes, I said gift. How have you been spending it? I know that for many it has been a very stressful time but many you are trying to make the best of it. Remember to just do what you can do day-by-day and know not to pressure yourself!

A relaxing way to use this time is to catch up with some Christian movies you might have missed watching in the past when you had a busier schedule. They will inspire you in faith and teach your children a lesson or two in character now that time has slowed and you can invest some time into it.

Deepening the Pantry



How many of you have had food storage on the mind?

I know that with all the talk about viruses and quarantines and that more people are taking this topic a little more seriously. But so many other just like to do it "just in case."

Many homemakers have found it helpful and a lifesaver if there is a layoff or some other kind of unforeseen emergency that arises.

A wise man stores up choice food and oil but fools gulp theirs down." Proverbs 21:20.

 We can trust Him and His faithful Word is a comfort to us in hard times.

 It is like a balm to our troubled souls.

 Maybe you are worried about health issues...

 finances...

 your family...

Coronavirus Preparedness




I want to first begin post by sharing that we should act in wisdom and not fear.

God is certainly in control of everything and our trust is in Him.

We all have heard the news that the virus is here in the U.S. and nearly every media channel is sharing updates about it.

I just came back from a doctors visit and the first thing my doctor told me was that she stockpiled 6 months worth of toilet paper. I think she only has a family of four but said she wanted to be safe and would use it up any way. Another person said there was a line outside of their Costco with people actually fighting over bottle watered.

A Peek Inside My Life {and Where I Have Been}



I have been on a bit of a blogging break for the month of February. I have been praying a lot and spending much needed time with my family. The older that I get the more I know not to take family for granted and to cherish every minute you get. You just never know when things will change.

Valentine's Day Gift Ideas for Couples



Valentine's Day is quickly approaching and some of you are looking for some gifts!

I am probably going to spend a little time decorating today--the kids really enjoy it when I do. They like making all the hearts (and heart animals) to decorate the windows.

Every year my husband likes to get the traditional flowers and chocolate and take me out for dinner and a movie or sneak in some fun at a bed and breakfast. He also likes to get flowers and candy for all the girls and he will also get the boys some chocolate or candy too!
