Keeping Your Covenant Book

http://familylifeglobal.com/resources/translations-and-downloads/#KYC

This might be an interesting resource to look at–it’s a group of lessons on marriage from FamilyLife, which is part of Cru now. (Remember when it was Campus Crusade? I do. I’m old.) It’s already translated into twelve languages. Some of it’s a bit cultural (looking at pictures in a wedding album…), but I think it’s got some good foundations, some good questions for couples to think through together.

Bonus points if you go through the English version with your man!

You’ve got this, mamas.

Halloween costumes, anyone?

http://vintagepatterns.wikia.com/wiki/Category:Costumes

Stumbled on this and it looks cool: it’s a site for vintage clothing patterns, all for free! And since history (and pop culture) is cyclical, you can find Star Wars patterns and Wonder Woman costumes! 🙂

And if your sewing skills are anything like mine, you’ll want to get on this ASAP.

I hope your sewing skills are better than mine.

 

Removing the ‘mas’ in Christmas

Removing the.png

My first Christmas overseas was pretty depressing. I didn’t have kids. I didn’t have a tree (I taped ornaments to the wall in a triangle). It wasn’t snowing. I couldn’t even run my lights because the power situation was pretty bad. But I felt God tugging at my heart to really consider the holiday.

If you take out the “mas” (meaning ‘more’, in this case; I know where it comes from, don’t write me angry letters), you’re left with Christ. Removed from the commercialism, removed from the cold, what was left?

Advent.

Advent still felt like home. So pull out your pipe cleaners, mamas. Here’s a plethora of advent activities, some for you, some for your kids…but all will help you remember that if that baby was swaddled, he was sweating, just like you.
