"Faith is the Victory"


Why is it that in today's world, Christian's struggle with having victory in their lives? It is because they do not have Faith! We rely on ourselves, money, family and things instead of relying on God! Of course, most 'Christian's' claim that they have Faith, but are we really willing to put our faith in God for everything including our job, home, family, income, and time? If we truely put our faith in God we will not need  anything .....God will supply all our needs. Only then can we have a Victorious life!

Kids and TV

I must admit, sometimes my parenting skills leave much to be desired.....however, this last week, I have stuck with my new rule of the kids only getting to watch 1hr. of TV or 1 movie a day. The first day they thought it was just awful, but by yesterday, QW didn't even ask to watch any! I am loving having a "quite" house (without the TV noise)!
This got me to thinking of how often I would let the kids watch TV/movies. Even though I have never liked it much (and even threatened to get rid of the TV altogether), I would let them watch it just because i didn't want to deal with them. Then before you knew it, a lot of time the TV was on and the kids were not even watching it.... it was just noise. 

With the TV off the last week, I have enjoyed quiet, it gives me a sense of calm. The kids are also playing together more and using their imaginations.
Now, the next things on my list to work on are snacking between meals and keeping a routine/schedule! I said earlier, my parenting skills have much to be desired....I'm still a work in progress with a very long way to go!
