Teaching Your Children Thankfulness

posted in: Contributing Posts | 0

  Do you have those instances in your life that just stick out? You can see them so clearly? One of those of mine is from a doctor’s visit when I was a little girl.

No matter what else is going on, you can count on the traditions that are already set in place. Since our family has been active with trick or treating, we have done family Halloween costumes. … Read More
