Once a month we do FHE with my husband's family. I love having this experience with extended family and wish that I got to do it with my family once a month too! I'd be up for traveling to AZ every month! Yesterday I had the kids tell the story of The Three Little Pigs while each father built a house out of either straw, sticks, or "bricks." Now these men are secret engineers so I believe that they probably built far superior houses than the Three Little Pigs. The kids then had fun huffing, and puffing, (and maybe a little flicking) to blow the houses down.

I am watching the tempests of the adversary raging. I am wondering what we can do to build these lives on the foundation of Jesus Christ. I am thankful for the direction and guidance of the Lord. "Building our homes as a fortresses of righteousness for protection from the world takes constant labor and diligence."
This is exhausting work, but one that I am happy to be engaged in. The exhausted parent in me, salutes the exhausted parent in you.
