My Life – February

Christian: I am journeying through Supernatural Mothering for a second time. Most of February we spent in the chapter on peace. Perfect timing. The books I picked, Hebrew Word Pictures by Dr. Frank Seekins, explains that the pictures represented in the Hebrew word for peace, shalom, mean “destroy the authority that establishes chaos.” Wow. For an object lesson to teach about peace to your children try Fix the Leak.

Wife: We celebrated 23 years since we started dating. We spent much time in prayer and being thankful. We see so many couples around us hurting and struggling. God has been gracious to us.

Mom: I am doing alright. There is always more I want to teach. More ways I want to connect. School is going well. Each child is now responsible for breakfast one day a week. We’re only in our second week but so far so good. I love the extra time in the morning to get a few more things done or have a few more minutes of Bible Study.
During school I started a sweater that was turning out too small so I am starting over. I also started on some wire wisteria. I am really liking it though I don’t know what I am going to do with it. It needs something to climb…

Author: I have been invited to host a table at a local gift shop in April during our town’s Second Saturday event. I am also planning to try hosting a table and perhaps a workshop at the Alaska Private and Home Educators Association’s curriculum fair.
I have a few ideas for books but still seem to lack the focus and direction to work on the like I want.

If you could hear me speak what topics would you want me to cover?

Reviews for Jake & Jesus:
Jake & Jesus, by Kelly Hagen, is a small children’s book with adorable illustrations and a huge message. Jake convinced me of his love for his best friend, Jesus. With Him, he could talk and play, sing and pray–anytime. Best of all, Jake gave Jesus the gift of his heart.

My only regret was that the book ended too quickly.

Linda Robinson, Author of When Love Abounds

Jake & Jesus is a heartwarming story of a young boy’s love for Jesus.  Through reading this book, young children will learn about Jesus, and how they too can have a personal relationship with Him.  This book is a wonderful tool for parents to use to help lead their child/children to Christ.  It’s also full of colorful illustrations.

Kelly shares some thoughts on friendship:

Friends are a special thing to have in your life. It’s something Jesus wants us to have. They can encourage us, lift our spirits when we are down. Share in our happiness. But we must remember that we are human. Even the “best” friend you have can hurt your feelings, and let you down. But the good news is…Jesus will never hurt us, or let us down. He loves us and forgives us. He doesn’t hold bitterness or anger towards us. We sometimes do-even not knowing it. So it’s important to remember not replace your friendship with Jesus with someone else. Put Him first and all else will be taken care of. Try your best everyday to “live” out that friendship for your children, spouse and other friends to see, so that they too may find the one true “best friend” in the world….Jesus!
