Each night my boys want to pray that they wont have bad or silly dreams and that they wont have to go potty, but what fascinates me the most is what Luke consistently says. He wants the bad men to put down their guns and swords and be good. So we always pray for the bad men, that they will learn about Jesus and want to obey Him. I have no idea where Luke got this idea. I wonder if we will find out in Heaven how this has affected the bad men in our world. I truly believe in the power of a child's innocent prayer...

Victoria, BC

At the beginning of December, Cory and I took a four day trip to Victroia, BC. We had a FABULOUS TIME. We went to Buchart Gardens, ate at fun restaurants like the Stickey Wicket, walked all around, had meaningful discussions and pampered ourselves with full body messages (a first for me)! I am so blessed to have him as my husband. I'm already looking forward to our next getaway. Posted by Picasa

From the mouth of a 4-year-old

Recently Zane told some of our friends that he was curious like Curious George.

I called Zane into the bathroom to kill a spider for me. He killed it with only two squares of toilet paper (it would take me a couple feet & at least one squeal.) Then he put his hand on my shoulder and said, "I do it because I love you."

Zane said to me that he was thirsty. I replied, "Nice to meet you, Thirsty. My name is Mommy." He doesn't like it when I do that and asked me to stop (I learned it from my Dad and didn't like it either...somehow it gets more funny with age.) He then asked if I would like it if he did that to me and quoted Luke 6:31, "Do unto others as you would have them do to you." After that he said, "Nice to meet you, Thirsty. My name is Zane. Did you like that Mommy?"

A couple days ago I was getting Luke in his car seat and got short with him for goofing around. I raised my voice and sternly told him to get into his seat. Zane said, "Watch your words." I asked if he was talking to me and he said yes. When I asked him why (I was curious what his answer would be) he said that I didn't sound very nice. I thanked him for the reminder.
