Week 7 of Raising Arrows, Snapshots and Encouragement!

Wise reminder!


A week after a vacation is hard to get back into the swing of things, but we survived, woot woot!!! Before vacation ended, we snuck in individual dates with the kids and made some fun memories! The hubs finished another project, and started on another, as you will see in the pics below. He never ceases to amaze me!!
The kids finished up their read-a-thon this week, that is a part of our homeschool co-op! Well that was one of the easier challenges for us, because our curriculum is literature based so we get in a ton of reading in as part of school and we pretty much love reading! There goal was to read a minimum of 240 minutes in a two week period! The kids have another week to collect sponsor money, so if you are a reading fan and like to sponsor some great kids in winning some money for prizes and books, contact us! It has been fun to be a part of encouraging reading with a great program from Usborne!

I found out I am a part of the Love, Listen, Repeat a new book coming out by Karen Ehman, oh my I just love her! Check out her blog and watch for upcoming info on the new book soon at http://www.karenehman.com/

Weekly encouraging reads:

Scientists are now discovering that what God has been telling us all along is not simply “good advice”. Giving thanks is far more than nice little phrases for our cute little daily bible-verse-calendars with eagles flying on them. There is life-transforming power when we put gratitude into practice. http://forthefamily.org/putting-gratitude-practice/

Here’s reality: life is hard! Yet, God has so gifted us with a means to remind each other of the gospel in Christian community. http://emmausblog.com/the-beautiful-gift-of-gospel-community-and-why-you-need-it/


These are the masks of God, behind which he wants to remain concealed and do all things. https://www.thegospelcoalition.org/article/one-reason-we-dont-see-miracles-in-the-west

To walk through life as a woman of wisdom, knowing what God sets down in His Word as His priorities will direct your days and your choices. https://elizabethgeorge.com/gods-will-life/
