Coming up on Praises of a Wife and Mommy! :)

Culture of Honor: Sustaining a Supernatural Environment

I know the last few days I have not had many posts but I am here and I am great.  Life is just busy as usual but that is good.

Currently I am reading the book "Culture of Honor" by Danny Silk who is out of Bethel Church in California.  Our church is moving in this direction and I am so excited!!!  More then excited!!!  There is a lot of learning that I am getting from this book.  :)  So if you are part of leadership at your church I would strongly suggest picking up this book-lots of great great information.  I am only on page 90 something so I still have about 100 pages to go but I have gotten a lot of information from this book.  Our church staff and council are going to be discussing this book in detail later in September.  We will be having an over night hotel adventure and I am looking forward to discussing the book but also a night away from town.  Lil man will be coming with us but Selah will be having a friend over and a baby sitter and she is looking forward to that too.  At our church we also made a "soaking" room to just soak in the presence of God and I am looking at getting in their.  :)  I will let you know how it goes.  :)

You should know that I just finished the book "Something Inside of Me" by Chitoka Webb and I have a giveaway going on right now for a copy of that book!  VERY LOW entries so click here to go enter!  

Speaking of giveaways I am super excited to be giving away "The Juppy-baby walker"  the first baby walker that fits in your purse!!  Confused???  Go read my review and enter the giveaway for your chance to win one, click here!  :)   This also has very low entries!   :)

Today I am determined to put in a Pilates DVD and workout.  I am reviewing this new DVD and coming later in September once I have had a couple weeks to use it and see how I feel I will be having a giveaway for it.  :)  It is a Pilates DVD that is geared towards pregnant women or women who just gave birth!  :)  I have never done Pilates but I think it will be fun.  Look for the review and giveaway later in September.

September is a busy month for us.  Selah will be turning 4 and we just got the facebook invite out to parents but we are still printing out the other invites for her to give to her friends.  I am so excited to have her "Tangled" party.  Here is our fun invitation that my husband made...he is so good with techy stuff!  I am such a blessed wife to have such an amazing husband who can do anything!  :) Here is the invite:

I want to make a cool tower out of Rice Krispie treats but I am unsure if I will be able to do so.  Anyone have any other ideas?  I have been thinking about what a good budget should be for a birthday party.  I hope to write a blog post about this more in detail.  I know as a parent I get excited to give a party but I have to keep in mind budget and not go over board.  :) 

Well that is a little heads up on what you can expect to see from Praises of a Wife and Mommy.  :)  Don't forget I have more dyed noodles and bean activities to showcase still too.  :)  As I try every week I will continue to keep Worship Wednesday posts as well as Thankful Thursday's.  

Be Blessed and take some time to be with HIM, Jesus!!!!  :)

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly.  I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos.  Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you.   This was a super easy one for those little hands.  I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting.  The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper.  EASY, but they enjoyed it!  :)  It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge!  :)   I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
