Nurturing the gift within your child

Hi friends! I haven't be blogging lately. Starting around October, I felt like I need to cut my time from blogging and listen to God and focus on my children. As a parent, we all wanted our kids to walk in the gift and the strength that God gave them. We do want help our kids discover their passion and purpose for their life.

We live in the society that encourages if your child is involved in many activity, that child is hard working and so on. I am not saying if they wanted to learn how to play a music instruments or learn how to dance is wrong, I am saying we need to nurture and work on their strength.

                                                          Listen to your children.
Our kids want to be heard, but we get too busy to really listen to them. When you talk to the kids, make sure you are listening with eye to eye contact. If you are busy, just tell them if they give you a few minutes to finish what you are doing, you would love to talk to them. Perfect timing for my teenagers is late when I say good night. Of course I wanted to go to sleep, but that seems to work better.
                                       Help your children to work on their strength

Find the gift that comes naturally and encourage them to work on it, rather than signing them for different activity. Some of us sign up our children to other activities because the kid next door happen to be doing that. I remember my children were very young when one woman approached me at a park. Her first conversation with me was, "So, what sport does your child play?"

The school and parents should continue to encourage work on their strength rather than on weakness. God was just teaching and leading me to read and understand how to understand and encourage my kids gift and I found a book by Dr. Tim Elmore, Nurturing the leader within your child. Very good book, I am not even finished yet and I am excited because I learned a lot already.

Let's raise a future generation that is filled with passion about their gift and strength that God gave them and bring glory to our God!

How are you helping your children in your family?

Merry Christmas to all!

It is ok to have tradition to bake, cook, making Ginger bread house, Christmas gift, but it is very important we focus, why we celebrate Christmas.

This Holiday is my favorite time of the year!

Luke 2:10, "But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord."
Now all this took place to fulfill what was spoken by the Lord through the prophet: 
Matthew 1:23-24, "BEHOLD, THE VIRGIN SHALL BE WITH CHILD AND SHALL BEAR A SON, AND THEY SHALL CALL HIS NAME IMMANUEL," which translated means, "GOD WITH US." And Joseph awoke from his sleep and did as the angel of the Lord commanded him, and took Mary as his wife."
The bible calls the birth of Jesus, good news!! 
We wish you Merry Christmas to you and your family!

The presence of God is within you

This is what God promised us, that He will not leave us here in earth alone. It is so comforting to me, that God's word is always true, that He is always near when we needs Him. 

For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him. (John 3:34)

No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us. Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit. (1 John 4:12-13)

And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; (John 14:16)

But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you. (John 14:26)

But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me: (John 15:26)

Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you. (John 16:7)

Now he which establisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us, is God; Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts. (2 Corinthians 1:21-22)

God doesn't hold anything back from anyone. His arms are wide open for you. Call on His name and He will answer you. Blessings friends~

I love Christmas!

Here is our family Thanksgiving in 2012. My brother comes to visit once a year for thanksgiving. He is such a humble and loving person I know. 

Here is our Thanksgiving this year 2013. I love Thanksgiving and also Christmas! I thank God for everything in our lives.
How about you, how was your thanksgiving. What makes your Thanksgiving so special?

His word is a light to our path

"Oh, how I love your law!
    I meditate on it all day long.
Your commands are always with me
    and make me wiser than my enemies.
 I have more insight than all my teachers,
    for I meditate on your statutes.
 I have more understanding than the elders,
    for I obey your precepts.
 I have kept my feet from every evil path
    so that I might obey your word.
 I have not departed from your laws,
    for you yourself have taught me.
How sweet are your words to my taste,
    sweeter than honey to my mouth!
 I gain understanding from your precepts;
    therefore I hate every wrong path."

I love reading the word of God, it brings Peace and joy to my heart. We serve an Omnipotent God!

May your heart be filled with His Peace this season! Blessings to you my friends and readers!

Happy Thanksgiving to all my bloggy friends!

I wanted to wish you all my bloggy friends a Happy Thanksgiving! I am thankful that I met too many gifted and wondeful women of God through blogging. My prayer is that you have a wonderful day with your love ones and don't let the bread you baked without salt mess up your day:)

I made this rolls last night, I took a bite and I forgot to add salt. I was so disappointing until a friend offered to brush it with salt butter.

I love you and may God pour His love upon you and your family today! Hugs to all of you~
