ORGANIZING TIP: THE PRAYER JAR

Hey everyone!  I am going to warn you.. this is one of my more “serious” posts because it is something close to my heart.. so now that you have that warning, read on 🙂

I have been working on praying with my son before a meal and before bed ever since the little guy was born. I want him to know that God is first in our life, and I want him to look back at his childhood and know that God was here with us every step of the way whether it felt like it or not. Continue reading
