"Praying for Boys" ~ End of the Month Wrap-Up

"One practical way we illustrate this in our home is by actually making the first the last.  I doubt there's a mom alive who hasn't had to deal with a case of the 'me firsts.'  So when one of my boys begs to be first, he's automatically last.

We don't have to serve others,
but Jesus did.

And he said if we want to be first, we'll need to be last.

My prayer is that my boys will inherit a lifestyle of serving and not shun hard work that brings glory to God, because a life in service to others is truly the most rewarding."

-Brooke McGlothlin-

"And the Lord's servant must not be quarrelsome
but kind to everyone,
able to teach,
patiently enduring evil,
correcting his opponents with gentleness."

2 Timothy 2:24-25

Hanging with Jesse and Heather!

We had such a great time with our friends Jesse and Heather 
who were so kind to come visit us on their vacation!
Tailgaiting at 49
BBQ Chips are a MUST when tailgaiting!!!
Time to go skiing!
Soy Sauce is rocking it!

It's been a strange, warm winter here.
Bennett decided not to ski on this day, but he regretted his decision after we got out there and he saw the chairlifts... He LOVES riding on the chairlifts!
Jesse being the test subject for the lighting on the camera shot, lol.
Thanks for coming you two!!!
I wish we lived closer!
Come back soon :)

"Praying for Boys": Mid-Month Discussion Question from Brooke McGlothlin

"Sometimes it's tempting to think God owes us a specific answer to prayer in return for all we've done for Him.  If you have struggled with this in the past, how so?

In your own life, how are you serving others?"

"For you were called to freedom, brothers.
Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for flesh,
but through love
serve one another."
