Welcome to our new home! Isn’t it spiffy? I do hope you’ll grab a button from our sidebar and spread the word about our new digs!
Impress Your Kids started almost a year ago when I decided to chronicle my foray into teaching my then 2 year old a scripture for every letter of the alphabet. My good bloggy friend, Leigh joined up to show us her same journey. As our kids have gotten older and our parenting skills have become stronger (or at least more flexed!) the ways we impress our kids is different, too.
I’m learning more and more how to make every opportunity count for God. I have to consciously choose to turn times of play into teachable moments. I work hard at incorporating God-moments into our everyday life. This blog is just the record of that experience. Ultimately it’s the place that keeps me accountable to weave a little faith into our daily life.
I hope and pray that this blog does the same for you: encourages you, prompts you and gives you some tools and ideas that will make an eternal difference in the life of your kids.
Beginning tomorrow we’re starting a new weekly column called YOUR TURN. We’ll pose a question or a situation regarding parenting, child-rearing or crafting (who knows?!), then you weigh in on how YOU do it with your kids and your family. Hopefully it will be a place that others can come to find some great ideas for their own families.
We’ve also got some FABU guest bloggers lined up for the month and we’re even going to throw in a giveaway or two! We’ll also continue doing book reviews, linky round ups (fyi@iyk) and of course, just plain old crafts, family times and crazy adventures. Please subscribe to our feed so you don’t miss a post. And we’d love to hear from you—so leave a comment. We want this to be a place where we learn and grow together!
