Wedding Anniversary

wedding

This week we will celebrate 15 years of marriage. We met at 32, married at 35, had our son at 36 and our daughter at 39. Hmmm, that makes me a midlife Mom.

Time with my best friend has gone by way too fast. I can’t believe our son is entering Freshman year of high school and our daughter is entering 7th grade in the Fall. I still remember cuddling my babies.

pixWhen I tell folks that Randy and I have been together for 17 1/2 years, some ask, “How do you stay together or how do you make it work?” The answer is unequivocally our faith in God keeps our relationship pressing through life’s ups and downs. Our core belief helps us invest in the three C’s of our relationship.

  1. Caring – Both of us genuinely care for each other which promotes healthy love, respect and trust. – 1 Corinthians 13:4-7
  2. Communication – We talk to each other about anything and everything which promotes a healthy friendship. – Luke 24:14
  3. Commitment – We’re both in it for the long haul, because we know God has a plan and a purpose for each one of us. – Jeremiah 29:11

As a way of celebrating our anniversary, I’m giving away select children’s ebooks now through June 7-9, 2016. Simply click on my name below and it will link you to Amazon. Enjoy!

Parental Involvement

Is it important for parents to be involved? According to several research companies; one being Education.com it is. They list several benefits to involvement with your kids. Just to name a couple:

  • Increased self-esteem
  • Improved academic achievements

Prior to researching the benefits, my husband Randy and I agreed early on in our marriage we would spend quality time with our kids. Some of the activities we do as a family are:

063

  • Serve our community as volunteers
  • When doing an activity, everyone participates (i.e. snow sledding, riding roller coasters, walking, riding bikes, hiking, swimming, etc.)
  • Help with homework, class projects, etc. or hire a tutor
  • Attend school field trips, plays, etc.
  • Eat meals together frequently
  • Attend church, read the Bible and pray together regularly
  • Support their extracurricular activities such as sports, dance, camps, play dates,etc.

Not only has been fun, but I believe it has helped our children to have confidence and do well in life.

I’d love to hear how your are involved your children’s lives, and how it has helped! Feel free to comment below.
