Okay enough deep thinking for tonight :). My brain is ready to shift gears to the mindless activites that occur after kids' bedtimes: folding laundry, watching a non-animated tv show, balancing the checkbook (maybe I should save that one till the morning :).)

Even once you get through the moral choices of what to look at online, it can be challenging to find quality stuff online. Searching for good information, or for an ideal product or service on the net can be a real hassle. There are some new services to specifically help with this issue. Hottest Products is one of services designed to help with this. Their site is jam-packed with a ton of items that are conveniently categorized in an orderly fashion, from Wedding Planning Guides to television services to learning to play the piano. Good stuff! Check it out and let me know what you think....

Cardfish is an exciting new personalized greeting card and messaging service that allows users to send innovative multi-media cards to their friends. You select a card, send it to a friend, and then when they open it and watch the video clip, Cardfish Phone call calls them at a specific point in the video, just when it makes it very funny. I like it.... There's even a free discount code for people to try the service out, using the word FREE as the coupon code. Fun, free, good stuff, right?
So, we'll see. I think I'll send one to my daughter, placing my phone right near her when I know she's checking email... Maybe, for a brief moment anyway, I will be "cool mom". Here's hoping, right? :)

"You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself."
I know you want your family to be successful. Whether you're a parent or grandparent, you want your children to be healthy, successful, and productive.
But what is true success? Jesus addressed this in Luke 10 when he was confronted by a lawyer asking, "What shall I do to inherit eternal life?"
Jesus replied with a question, "What is written in the Law?" The answer is our verse today: "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself."
Jesus said, "Do this, and you will live" (Luke 10:28). If you want your children to really live, a successful life comes from a strong faith.
You may be asking, "So how do I instill that faith into my children?"
It's not as hard as society likes to pretend. You see, God wants your children to know and love Him even more than you do.
That is why He has provided you with an instruction manual, His Word. If you and I simply apply the Scriptures to our lives and homes, we will raise godly children!
