Happy Mother’s Day!
You’re doing a wonderful job parenting your precious children, but this month let your family show you how much they appreciate all your hard work and dedication.
Family, here is how...
We invite you to create a gift for your mother, reminding her each day how much she means to you.
Have a little time...
Let the children pick some beautiful fresh flowers and place them in the Write Vase. Write Happy Mothers Day! on the vase and have kids write a special note, similar to a card, on the vase. Celebrate Mom and let her know how special she is to each member of your family!
Have lot of time...
With colorful paper, let the kids create beautiful origami flowers for mom using the origami book, Paper Blooms. If the instructions are too difficult for your child, you can always pull up a YouTube instructional video for making origami flowers. They have the opportunity to learn origami flowers and make mom a new creation each day! Craft away!
For a more personalized gift for Mom, let the kids decorate the Mothers Day Write Vase with the wet erase markers. They can write words describing mom, such as beautiful, caring, fun, nurturing, loving, kind, etc... each child can take a side and draw a picture for mom. If there is room, dad can even participate and decorate the vase! One side not enough? Let each child take turns each day decorating the vase for mom. Create a meaningful masterpiece again and again!
One of the greatest gifts to celebrate motherhood is the book Your Legacy, The Greatest Gift by Dr. James Dobson. Dr. Dobson, Founder of Focus on the Family, reminds us of the importance of being intentional about our children’s spiritual training.
Join us in planting seeds with your family and growing traditions that glorify God.
From our nest to yours,
CiCi McInnis and Karrie Forbes

Last week was at a 48 hour solitude retreat. From the start, I had trouble resisting productivity and began to ponder the words "be" and "do". It became obvious that I have recently been driven and defined by what I do instead of who I am in the Lord but then I started to watch the trees...
