“He’s Not Sharing!”

I bought it for $1.99 at Goodwill. I thought it would be a fun present for one of the grandkids. They could pretend to take pictures with it. My husband is the one who pointed out that it was a real camera. He fiddled with some things, put in some batteries, and we had a real working, bright pink, Fisher-Price digital camera. Now it was too hot of an item to give […]

More on Whining and Complaining

“Do all things without murmurings and disputings.” (Philippians 2:14) We’ve talked about us complaining. We’ve talked about our children complaining. Let’s talk about what we and our children are going to put on if we’re going to put off complaining. Here’s a short lesson to do with your children. Read Philippians 2:14 together. Discuss what murmurings and disputings are. Give some examples from your own life. In what ways are you tempted to murmur and dispute? Write a word to describe each […]
