October 31st, Reformation Day

For those of us in the Evangelical tradition, we don’t hear much of Martin Luther or the Reformation.  But, in our family we are teaching our kidsMartin Luther about the significance of the Reformation and Martin Luther and it’s vital importance to who we are as Christians.  October 31st (Reformation Day) marks the day that Luther nailed the 95 Theses to the doors of the Whittenburg Church(1517).Our daughter attended a Lutheran school for Kindergarten and first grade.  While there, she was exposed to Luther while attending there and for that we are grateful!  Currently my husband is teaching both our children about Luther and the importance of the Reformation.  We think it is vital for Christians to understand Christian history and how it is important to us today!  Without Luther and the other reformers we may still be paying indulgences to the Catholic Church!

If you want to teach your children about Luther, there is a great book that my daughter’s teacher read to them.  It is titled “Martin Luther, A Man Who Changed the World” and is written by Paul Maier.  There is also an amazing movie which depicts Martin’s struggles to bring change to the Catholic church called “Luther” (I would not recommend this for small children, you may want to review it before allowing your children to view it.)  Enjoy!  And remember, October 31st is about so much more than costumes and candy!


My Redeemer Lives, by Nicole C Mullen

This song gives me chills! Sometimes I get overwhelmed by all the mess that is going on in this world, but when I hear this song I am reminded that Jesus lives and that is our hope!!! Enjoy!

“For I know that my Redeemer lives, and He shall stand at last on the earth; and after my skin is destroyed, this I know, that in my flesh I shall see God, Whom I shall see for myself, and my eyes shall behold, and not another. How my heart yearns within me!” – Job Job 19:25-27

Clayton’s Story

James 4:13-17 Now listen, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.” 14 Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. 15 Instead, you ought to say, “If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.” 16 As it is, you boast and brag. All such boasting is evil. 17 Anyone, then, who knows the good he ought to do and doesn’t do it, sins.

Lead Straws?

I bought these straws today, luckily they were only $.99, cause I ended up throwing them in the trash. If you read the warning on the package (which I didn’t see until I got them home), they say that they contain lead, which is known to cause cancer, birth defects etc…! This is very strange to me. I’ve see other products, mostly painted ceramics that have this warning, but not straws! Weird! They are now in my trash can, and from now on I will make sure the straws I buy do not have lead in them. If you are familiar with this topic (lead being in drinking straws) I’d like to hear from you!  Thanks!
