Beginning back in 1999 when my husband and I got saved, we have tried to have family devotions every night. As a Christian family raising kids we believe that the family should come together in the evening and share prayer requests, give praise for at least one thing, and read a message from the Bible, or a devotional book. The problem is not in finding something to read, or thinking of a prayer request, or even praising God for his goodness; it is that sometimes we simply forget. Well, with cell phones in almost everyone pocket or purse these days, I have finally solved the forgetting part of family devotion time. Everyone in our family sets there cell phone alarm to go off at 8:00pm every day. This works because there is always at least one person that will hear it and come gather everyone else around in the living room. I love it when God shows me something so simple but yet so useful to our spiritual growth as a family.

Hi! I am a woman who loves to do a lot of things. I am very adventurous because I love trying new things! When I go to a restaurant I don't mind ordering something new at all. I mean my new favorite dish may be on that menu somewhere just waiting on me to try it! I also love to travel. I have been to a lot of different places and I love to take photos and tell about my journeys. While on my journey of trying new things, or traveling to new places, or just living my life; I occasionally want to jot some things down. This is my jotting down spot. I consider a lot of things, and hopefully you will enjoy reading about them. If you don't then just move along. No need to comment and be all ugly. I mean this is my place, not yours. Mama always says, "if you can't say something nice, then don't say anything at all." So let's just keep that in mind!! I do welcome feedback and encouragement though. If you have something that will help my blog out then please leave me a comment. Thanks, and it is so good to meet you!! View all posts by Mary Beth's Considerations
