The right church

I am curious as to what you look for when you are looking for a church for you and your family.  I am not looking for a new church or anything!  Just a thought popping through my head to see if any new ideas pop through that could benefit the church we go to.  Some of you know my hubby is a youth pastor so we have the best job but we also want to keep growing our church.

I know for me since I have 2 children I want to check out the children's programs, see the rooms, meet the teachers, and find out what curriculum they are using.

Worship is another big one for me.  What type of worship do they do?  I like to see how the congregation is worshiping.  Are they entering in?

The messages, are they a good Bible teaching?  Easy to follow and understand?

How friendly are people?  If I am new I want someone to come to me and introduce themselves.

How active are they in the community?  What are they doing to serve or to share the love of Christ?

What about you?  What are you looking for when you attend a church?

When we first got married we wanted a younger church atmosphere. Being Catholic, that is a hard thing to find sometimes, but, luckily, the college campus had a very strong presence at one a few blocks away.

Once we started having children though, it became very clear that that was no long the one for us. There wasn't a nursery, sunday school for children, programs, etc. It was college kids and their families that came to visit that weekend.

We were told by an usher, while trying out another Catholic church, of a wonderful family centered church with programs galore - it is even complete with it's own school. We have been going there for about 3 years now and LOVE it! I teach the 2 year old Growing with God class and am now a Eucharistic Minister.

It is about 20 minutes away, but distance is not the issue. We wanted a church that we could call HOME. And, we definitely found that! We love our priests, their homilies, the people, everything. :D

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
