  1. I am curious as to what others are doing with their dyslexic or learning challenged children as far as writing out works such as science labs and questions? Last year we used the general science notebook but I am trying to decide if my son should be typing or hand writing his answers into a regular notebook instead? He does have dysgraphia, so it's a challenge.
  2. Last week my teen daughter stepped on a full tick that had fallen off our dog. She was barefoot. Shudder.
  3. Thank you all. My son has been on name brand since he started it 6 years ago but due to insurance issues we will need to switch togeneric. I am wondering how the transition will go....
  4. If you have any experience with this medication, do you use name brand or generic? Any issues with either?
  5. We just traded in our expedition ( which I loved!) for a Yukon Denali. The denali has more storage space than the expedition had. It also has 2 bench seats so it seats 8 comfortably.
  6. I am so sorry for your loss.
  7. My husband and I started THM in February and love it so far. I also love that this is a life style and not a fad diet. I lost over 100# before, only to gain it back because I couldn't maintain eating the way I did to lose it. THM can be easily done for life. We are also Christians so the religious aspect doesn't bother me.
  8. I'd like the kids to be able to draw a picture on the left hand page and write a narration on the right hand page. I'd prefer spiral bound too. Does anyone sell these?
  9. I met DH when I was 16 and he was 20. We got married two months after I graduated highshool. I was 18, he 22. I had my first baby when I was 20 and 10th when I was 36. We will celebrate 27 years this August. We married young because we were in love :-)
  10. I had my first at 20 and last at 36. I would love to have had more but God hasn't blessed us again. I love being pregnant! I have easy pregnancies, labors and deliveries ( except my 9th).
  11. I do a load of towels every single day. And then some LOL.
  12. I wouldn't say child to child, but when I had my first I was only 20. Then I had a baby a year for a while. I learned to choose my battles and relax about certain things and to be more strict on others.
  13. We have had different seasons with different levels of activities. I try to do things that I can include more than one child in at the same time. Such as swim lessons, CAP, baseball teams etc. There are some that I'd love to do but we haven't been able to afford them at the time.
  14. I don't mean to sound flippant, but I trust the Lord. He gave us all these kids, He will provide. Will it always look like what I want or expect? No. However, we have made it though some very rough times just fine.
  15. I was pregnant with # 6 and we had gone out to eat. I was in the bathroom with two girls and an older woman came up to hubby and was admiring the remaining kids. Then I came out with the two girls and a very pregnant belly. She got up in my face and asked me why I had so many children? She was very angry. I was so shocked that I stammered something about allowing God to decide our family size, to which she replied something like "When was the last time I talked to God?!" Finally HER son got her to walk away. It was the weirdest thing.
  16. I am going to end my part in this conversation. I will be praying for you all.
  17. My intention was not to scare, but to answer questions when asked what I believed and why. Please forgive me if I caused pain and fear in anyone. The judgment part of the conversation is only half of it, the other half is a loving God who gave His son so ALL could be saved. God loves each and everyone of us. John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. This article/video really spoke to me and is why I do speak up: http://www.radicallychristian.com/what-atheist-penn-jillette-taught-me-about-evangelism
  18. Yes, we are all sinners and we will all one day be judged by Jesus Christ. However, in Romans we see that God has revealed Himself to us and everyone is without excuse. The unbelievers will not be justified because they didn't know, they will have no excuse when they are judged. Romans 1: 18-20 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; 19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. 20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse. The quote above of Romans 2:12-15, needs to include 16, which finishes the quote: In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel. http://www.gotquestions.org/justification.html This is a good explanation of justification.
  19. I don't mind answering. I am not a bible scholar or anything so I don't know if I am helpful or not. I do think it comes to faith in the end. Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. I'm not sure anyone can know with 100% absolutely certainty if what they believe is true. It comes down to personally deciding that yes, I believe this to be the most reasonable answer or deciding that it's not. I could be wrong in my beliefs, but I am comfortable in resting in the belief that what I believe is true. I would enjoy looking at scripture to explain the bolded.
  20. I understand. I am sorry for those who are struggling and pray you find the answers you are seeking.
  21. The OP asked how I know what I believe. My answer is that I came to the my belief after much soul searching and study. I had to ask myself some tough questions, and as I posted in another reply, I had to work backwards from creation to what I found to be the most reasonable conclusion. From there I was able to work through what I do believe. Trusting in the finished work of Christ means trusting that He came, lived and died in my place. He paid the debt that I could never pay for my sins. Believing that I can do nothing to save myself and trusting that Jesus did it all for me. When He said, " It is finished" He completed what was needed for salvation for anyone who comes to Him. As far as the bolded above, I disagree. The bible clearly shows the only way to be saved is through faith in Jesus Christ. We are called to good works as an act of obedience, but good works will not save anyone. Good works are a natural result of our relationship with Jesus, not a way to earn salvation. To the OP, keep seeking Him. Proverbs 8:17 I love those who love me, and those who seek me find me.
  22. I met my spouse when I was 16 and he was 20. I was a waitress at a small restaurant in the town we both lived in. We got married when I was 18 and have been married almost 27 years.
  23. Christian faith is believing in the person and saving work of Jesus Christ. What people did or did not do doesn't matter in the sense of where they will spend eternity. The only thing that will land someone in hell is rejecting Jesus Christ. The only way to spend eternity in Heaven is to repent of your sins and trust in the finished work of Jesus. Religion in man made and will fail because man is sinful and will fall short of being "good enough." That is why Christ came, died and rose again. He did it all.
