First, or maybe second Q of the year. Need to break out of the holiday funk and get after it. Good way to do that and keep the intensity up is to bring out the ol trusty EMOM. So we did, it sucked…but we survived.

Proverbs 22:6 – Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it
There is no doubt, kids pay attention to what you’re doing. A lot of the time they’ll do what you do, because that’s what they know. A good thing we can do for our kids is to surround ourselves with good people, and this is something I’ve continued to work on.
This past semester for our life group at church (part of surrounding ourselves with good people), the idea came about to make bags for the homeless and less fortunate that we see while driving. We did this and had some of the kids help out to pack the bags.
Remember when I said kids pay attention to what you do? Well, check this out. My two youngest wrote some letters for the elf to take to Santa. Of course I had to take them so they’d magically get there. When I read the one my middle one wrote, it floored me.
Part of what he wanted was for Santa to make toys for the homeless, because everyone is deserving to be happy. So just as the scripture says, raise them in the ways they should go. I couldn’t put all these pieces together at the time looking forward when the kids helped put the bags together, but looking back and connecting all the dots…man, God is good.
