- Kids brought up in an environment of legitimate praise build a strong resistance against the insults and put-downs that often bombard them from our culture.
- They need to see us turning to God with confidence when we are afraid, out of energy, out of ideas, or out of money. They need to see how we have trusted Him to overcome our helplessness in every situation.
- One of the great factors that determine whether children grow up to be these kinds of healthy adults (i.e., adults who are not dominated and manipulated by their feelings) is how their vulnerabilities are handled when they are children.
- Grace-based homes provide and outlet where the children can respectfully voice their disappointment without fear of reprisals.

I may be slacking on my blog, but I haven't just been lounging around eating bon bons. I've been working on a few crafty things, had family in town, softball has started and working on a new business venture for myself. So very far from lounging. With everything else going on I haven't taken the time to actually write posts about the crafty things I have been working on. So here I am, taking a few minutes to try and play catch up.
A while back I decided I was going to spend a day each month and make cards for all the birthdays, anniversaries and special events happening in the next 30 days. So a couple weeks ago I sat down and made Mother's day cards, a couple anniversary cards, wedding cards and a couple blank cards for whenever I feel like just saying hello to a friend.
I used my Cricut with various different cartridges such as Straight From the Nest, George and Wall Decor and More. I also used my stamps from Stampin' Up. So fun! Well, here they are...
A couple wedding cards.
