Are you a quiverfuller???

I read this article recently and have been watching an online discussion of the topic. What are your thoughts??

GREAT Article


Holly Stratton is the wife of Dr. Dick Stratton, president of Clearwater Christian College. She recently published an article (as she has in the past) on Sharper Iron. The article is too lengthy to publish here, but you can read it here.

I found the article challenging and refreshing, and I think you will too. We could all use (and teach) a little more discernment!

By the way, Mrs. Stratton spoke at our ladies' retreat in 2004.....I thought she was terrific! She was so NORMAL and down to earth...it was great!

Say What???

Last night we baked some peanut butter cookies with Camden. Okay, so we cheated a little and used the store-bought Pillsbury dough in a tube. He doesn't care if they are from scratch anyway! After we had them in the oven (and boy, you should have seen him "smush" them with the sugared fork) I told him we should go to the living room while they baked. He looked at me and said, "No comprendo." I looked at Joel - who was staring in utter shock - picked my jaw up off the floor and said, "What!?"

"No comprendo." This time Camden burst into laughter as he followed me to the living room. Then I asked him what "No comprendo" means. Here's his answer....."I don't know, Silly!"

When he decided to become bilingual, I don't know. Maybe next time, he'll know what he is saying.

Do the right thing....get out and VOTE

Hey everyone....Go Vote! It's not only our right, it's our responsibility! Did you know that we have worse voter turn out in our country than in most other democratic countries?? Typically only 30-50% of Americans vote...in a presidential year. This being an off year means it will probably be less!

Remember, if you don't vote you don't have a say!

Camdenisms


The other day I offered Camden a piece of fruit. He told me, "I can't eat that! Fruit killed Eve." Then I offered him an apple....which he readily accepted! When I asked him about it, he told me that Adam and Eve could eat the apples off of the trees, but they couldn't eat from the FRUIT OF THE ONE TREE. Needless to say, we no longer eat fruit in our house. But, you're welcome to join us for an apple. :)
