We're starting a new Easter tradition this year.  The week before, we'll be reading Bible passages from the gospels that lead up to the resurrection.  I'm excited about adding this to our family's celebration!

Well-Adorned Children

Christian wife and mother of two girls blogging about the everyday - and special - moments in parenting and in life.
Introduction
Lover of Christ.  Wife.  Mother.  Homeschooler.  Former teacher who still loves to read and learn.

My heart in writing on my blog is to encourage mothers of all ages, and especially those who are rearing daughters.  From devotionals to education to fashion to books, I like to share my thoughts, feelings, and resources on subjects that matter to moms.  Most of all, I want us to grow in our walk with God and raise children who bring glory to Him.
