An Easter Resolution

As Easter approached this year, I began reevaluating my relationship with Jesus. What better time to do so than when we celebrate His resurrection. I decided to take time and look at each of the gospel accounts of when Jesus arose. As I read Mark's account, I was dumbfounded to realize how very lacking in my own faith I truly was of meeting with my risen Savior, not just this Easter Sunday, but every worship service I take part in.

Review: Reading Eggs

I cannot tell you how excited I am about the latest review that I had a chance to take part in. For quite some time now, I have toyed with buying a membership to the learning site Reading Eggs. I have done the two week trial and liked what I saw but never felt like it was long enough to really invest $49.95 for six months or even $69 for a year; that is until now. For the past six weeks both of my kids have gotten the opportunity to explore and learn on the site and I've seen an explosion in how much my 4 year old has learned. He has actually read at least two sentences this far and is well on his way to reading much quicker than my daughter did. I definitely attribute that to using Reading Eggs. No other site has kept him engaged in the learning process quite like this one.

For awhile now, I've felt this ever increasing burden that "stuff" and things were overtaking our lives. So this past Christmas we made some drastic changes in our home.

However, no matter what we did, something felt awry.
