A German pastor and former Nazi concentration camp prisoner said many times that he watched all of these different groups taken away, but "I did not speak out." When they came for him, there was no one left to speak out for him.

There's a disturbing trend towards the removal of personal liberties in the US today. Are you looking out for and protecting your neighbor's rights and freedoms, even if you don't agree with their choices? Be it a ban on plastic bags or mandatory vaccinations, we must speak out for the rights of the individual, given by God and secured by the Constitution.

Are you an exhausted mom of littles?

Know are exhausted mom of littles?

It's pretty likely you're in one of those two groups. I didn't think that this stage of little sleep and little help would ever end. I had a surprising glimpse of the light at the end of the tunnel recently. It really is out there! There is hope!

Are you ready to observe Lent with your kids?

We have a free printable calendar up today at +Kids in the Word. It's in the shape of a cross and your kids can color or put stickers on each day as you count down to Holy Week.

Don't know what Lent is? Joyice helps explain what Lent is too!

I've been working on learning to take better pictures of my kids. It's important to me to capture the memories and their faces.

If you have kids, I'm guessing that's important to you too.

Here are some of the things I've learned and some resource recommendations.

The first Christians were called followers of "The Way" ... What does that mean? It it heavily based in an Old Testament Hebrew idea and we're expected as parents to walking in the way with our kids.

Have you ever been waiting for God?

I've found myself waiting for God many times. Infertility. New jobs. Moves. And so many other times. It's hard to wait.

+Candace Crabtree has a new devotional/journal perfect for these seasons of waiting. It's called Wait Only Upon God. It's 40 Days of Scripture, short readings, prayers, and space for journaling. Great for Lent or any time of the year.

Are you in a season of waiting? I'd love to pray for you. Drop a line here or on the post. You don't have to be specific. Just saying "I'm waiting on God" is enough. He knows.

Are you trying to navigate your healthcare options for 2015? A year ago, we dropped our high deductible insurance plan for Christian Healthcare Ministries. I wrote this post last spring to tell all about our decision process and how much we have saved.

CHM offers coverage for as little as $45/mo on their bronze plan. It maxes out at $450/mo for a whole family (3 units x $150) for the gold plan. We have the gold plan and you can read why we chose that plan for our family in this post.

Know someone struggling with affording healthcare coverage? Concerned about the ACA penalties for not having healthcare? Please tell them about CHM and this post!

The Bible Reading Journal is now available. It's at the center of how I'm reading through the Bible with each of my boys. 

If you promote products on your site, we'd love to have you join our affiliate program here:
I set a goal. I want to read through the entire Bible with each of my kids before they leave our home... and preferably before they each reach high school. It's about giving them a broad overview of the whole Bible and Christianity before they are on their own to navigate the world. Read how we're approaching this journey and the resource we're using to help us stay on track.
