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

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
