Give your children that "look" when you see them! You know that look that says, "I love you so very much and I would not trade you for the world!" Children need to see your expression of love! They need and want proof that you love them! It is so easy to talk the talk, but it is so much harder to walk the walk and "show your love!"
Create that look of love in your eyes and watch the magic happen and if you are really blessed your child will return that magical look to you!

Give your children a valuable gift! Give them your time! They need to spend time with you to build a lasting relationship with you! They need to be in your presence to learn those "life lessons" that only parents can teach! Give your child priceless information that you have learned from your victories and mistakes! Give your child everything that you can give him or her! They will need this valuable information to survive in this everchanging world!
Bless your child with your knowledge, wisdom, skill, talents and love! Give them these awesome gifts and see the benefits of sharing wonderful knowledge with your child! Wonderful information in, wonderful information out!
May God bless you and keep you and your family!!!

The world would be truly a better place if we all looked at the world through the eyes of a child! The world would be a place where we could have lots of unconditional love! The world would be filled with beauty that we would see and recognize and we would not be too busy or too distracted to smell and enjoy the pretty flowers, especially the roses!
We would not judge people by the color of their skin, or by the type of home that they live in or the clothes that they wear or the car that they drive! All those things would not matter! Children have an uncanny way of loving people just because they are people! We should all learn this valuable lesson from children!
The world would be a better place if we all looked at the world through the eyes of a child!

When my youngest son was two years old he came to me with a extraordinary question. He inquired with an intense look, " Mommy, when God entered the garden of Eden did He walk in or did He fly in?" Then he declared emphatically, " Mommy you know He had to power to fly!"
When my oldest was two he also asked a very poignant question. He asked, "Mommy where were we before we were born?" "Were we in heaven talking to God?" Then he said vehemently, "I believe we were in heaven talking to God."
Recently they both came to me they are now 14 and 17 years old and they are still asking those awesome questions. They both posed the same questions after studying Anatomy in their respective classes. They inquired," Mom do you think when God created the human body he took a lot of time to design the human body and really figure out how to make each system work so well together or do you think because He is God He just created our bodies without having to contemplate each and every detail?'
My children never cease to amaze me with their wonderful poignant inquiries and I am so pleased that did not ask, "Does God exist?" Notice at the early age of two they knew God existed and at 14 and 17 they still know He exists!!!!
My children knowing and loving God and Jesus is truly "the greatest gift" that they could give me!

My oldest 17 year old son came to me on Mother's Day and said, "Mom I just really wanted you to know that I love you.' My heart was touched as I looked int o his gorgeous brown eyes and witnessed pure love pouring out of his eyes, heart and soul!" I almost cried! Yes, my sons tell me that they love me all the time and I feel the love but this moment in time will always be held in my heart! It was a very spontaneous ans special moment and I was pleased and I told him that I loved him too! I told him thank you and I would place his gift in my heart and keep it there eternally!
My youngest son really surprised me with his gift! He is now 14 years old and he amazed me! I had not experienced this type of joy since he and his brother were little tykes! He gave me 100 kisses for Mother's Day on my cheek and I experienced pure motherly love and joy as I giggled through my heartfelt kisses!
I am truly a blessed woman, but more importantly I am truly a blessed mother!!!
I praise God for the honor and the privilege of being a mother!

Parents remember the old adage, "Sticks and stones may break my bones but words can never hurt me?" Well it was wrong! We have to be very careful with negative words that we say to our children and we should never abuse them on any level and verbal abuse can last a lifetime.
Monitor what you say to your children! You can stick knives directly into their hearts with sharp-pointed evil words! You must be careful when you are talking to your children and even when you are angry, you must concentrate and choose your words carefully!
We must think about our parents before we speak and we must ask the question, "How would I have felt if my mother talked to me like that? We all know the words we wished our parents had said to help us instead of hurting us. Here is your opportunity to get it right without screaming foul words at your children! Let's face it when we say ugly words they only hear the ugly words, the lesson you were trying to teach goes out of the window!!!
So now that we know that words can hurt "to the bone," what are we going to do about it? Change your m.o! You can teach your child a lesson without destroying him/her! Make a decision to rephrase what you have to say to your child to save your child! Your child will win and you will win! It will be a win-win situation!!! Write to me to give me your opinion! I am looking forward to hearing from you!!!

I admonish you to teach your children about God and Jesus! It is of the upmost importance to teach your children about our Father and our Savior! We are talking about information that a child will carry with him/her eternally! Teaching your child about God and Jesus will build a foundation that is strong! You must also encourage your children to read and obey the word! Teach them the Ten Commandments and let them know that they are not outdated! Prepare your children for the real world! They will need God, Jesus and the Biblical word to survive and to live eternally!
Teach your children about God and Jesus and watch them flourish. This is the 'greatest gift" that you can give your children, a love for God and Jesus which leads to eternal life!
Are you teaching your children about God and Jesus? Why or why not?

Let's have a heart to heart talk! Do you really love your children? I mean do you "really" love your children? I pray that you have been listening to the words in this blog and I pray that you are internalizing the fact that it is not good enought to say you love your children without showing them how much you love them! Children are one of our most precious gifts from God. They need to be loved and they need to be shown love 24/7!
I admonish you to love your children and to show them how much you love them each and every day of their lives. What could it hurt? Better yet, what could it help? Maybe they will not go looking for love in all of the wrong places!
I admonish you to be active in your children's lives. Do not be a bystander! Your child's life is much to precious and they need you! Do you really love your children? Then get in there in show your love!!!
