I have written a couple of times over the years about "Mom, Dad and Me" books. I cannot tell you how valuable they have been to our family.
A long time ago, I felt it was important that the girls be able to write and share their feelings on paper, and we would write back. So we started these books, writing back and forth, back in 2011 I believe. (I'll have to go and look that up)
Well, here we are 8 years later, STILL doing it! And I cannot tell you the VALUE of those books! They are PRECIOUS!
Sarah was looking through hers not too long ago and declared, "I can't believe I thought that!"
about something she had written several years ago.
It has been interesting watching hand writing mature, thoughts mature, ideas mature, goals come to fruition and more.
Over the years we can look back and see God's faithfulness as we worked on different things. In our darkest days, we were able to write.
And now, we continue to write.
Miss Erika lives in an apartment now near the college, but comes home on the weekends, and the book is waiting for her. She writes in it before she leaves.
Sarah writes in her book too.
I am SO THANKFUL FOR THESE BOOKS! They are TREASURES.....
If you have children at home, and have not started a "Mom, Dad and Me Book" or if your kids are too old to call it that, just start a "book". :)
It is SO WORTH the time and effort.

“I pray because I can't help myself. I pray because I'm helpless. I pray because the need flows out of me all the time- waking and sleeping. It doesn't change God- it changes me.”

I believe in the sun even when it's not shining. I believe in love even when I don't feel it. And I believe in God even when He is silent. (quote found on the wall of a concentration camp)
