I had a discussion with someone about blogging and the question was asked, “What does it profit us?” I thought about that with this blog.

Tuesday, January 17th, 2012

Each night, at bed time, we cuddle in bed. We say our prayers. His latest AWANA jewel required him to pray for a teacher, a friend, and a missionary. This was good. I had tried before to show him how to pray for others but it wasn’t quite clicking. Thanks to the AWANA project, he […]
