This family devotional was borne out of wanting Finn to treat his brother well. Overall, he’s pretty gentle and nice to Justus, but every once in a while he’ll snatch a toy from Justus or be a little too rough. We wanted him to be able to think about how others might feel based on his actions. This is a lot for a three-year-old but I was surprised by how much this resonated with him. We’ve referred back to this “do unto others” verse multiple times since discussing it.
“Just as you want others to do for you, do the same for them.”

After Amanda’s post on When Motherhood Isn’t What You Expected, I wanted to come up with some helpful, actionable tips for combatting “mommy blues.” You know what I’m talking about…when there’s no particular reason for you to feel down, and yet you do. When you’re feeling a little stir crazy from caring for your mini-me.
Today our family devotional was based on our church’s reading plan through the New Testament. We focused on a verse in the book of Acts where Paul is speaking to the Ephesian elders and he quotes Jesus. (If you want to read a brief article about this quote, which is present here in Acts but is not quoted in any of the gospels, check out this link.)
This devotional was born out of sheer necessity. It was one of those days where Finn clearly woke up on the wrong side of the bed and wanted everyone to know it. I called an audible and we had a family devotional right then and there.
Weekends are for waffles (or french toast, or pancakes…) This morning, that meant guava stuffed french toast from my new favorite weekend spot: Brunchies. I don’t even have a picture to show you guys just how delicious my breakfast was because, well, I ate it.
Today our family devotional was about the Creation. We read through Genesis 1 in Finn’s Beginner Bible. We had planned to go for a walk and talk about the things we saw that God had created, but it started to rain so we just looked out of the window instead (our house overlooks a nature preserve).
