9 days till my “due” date. So close, yet so far away! Having patience in the latter stages of pregnancy has never been easy for me! I am trying to stay busy catching up on things, (like this blog) that I can do sitting down, and that don’t tire me out too much! I finished reading Voddie Baucham’s book, Family Driven Faith, and if you haven’t read it ~ please take the time! It is a book that will change your life for the better! Right now I am reading Raising Maidens of Virtue, by Stacy McDonald. Another very important book for mothers and daughters alike! I have also been reading to the children after they have eaten lunch. We are reading The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien, something fun that we can all laugh about together! Some of our children are needing a little prodding in their desire to read. Most of them enjoy reading immensely, for which I am very thankful. Me and my husband have always enjoyed reading, and we also like to read together. I think it creates a special bond when a husband and wife or a family can sit down and read together. Of course, you must have family worship time, which is the most important! Right now we are going through Charles Spurgeon’s Catechism for our morning worship, and in the evenings we are going through the book of Deuteronomy. If you haven’t read through Deuteronomy in a while, it is a most convicting book! Our times of family worship are something that we cannot do without! The Bible commands it and we must obey! We must take time to do that which is most important ~ the salvation of our families is at stake!
