Making Your Home Your Haven - Week 3

Candles on  vintage tray with nuts and pumpkin on wooden background

Yay, it's week 3, but also sad it's almost over, I hope she does a Christmas Challenge too!!
So week 3 is Family Fun fun we have been doing this off and on. But this week I am going to make a point to do it. We usually do Movie Night on Sundays, or walks, Mondays is a busy day for me so sometimes if I go groceries late we can't do much. Some Tuesdays nights I'm not home, so it's a hit and miss for this, like this Tuesday I won't be home, family will be. Wed nights we either stay home or go to Church, just depends. So looks like Thurs or Fri night would be good nights for this. Sat eve's we have soccer games and Sundays like I said we do something anyway. I'm going to have to be creative this week. Let's see what we come up with this week. Do you guys have any suggestions, or what do you do?

Here's this weeks challenge:
Keep your candle burning, the music playing and plan a Family Fun Night. Have a pillow party in the family room and get out every blanket and pillow in the house and be cozy with the kids or your hubby! Even if you live alone you can do this. Enjoy a cozy evening of hot cider and caramel corn. Bust out some old fashioned games and take the time to savor these moments with your loved ones. Work on kindness and joy this week.
Her suggestions sound like so much fun!! Let me know what you are doing for family fun night.

Here is another suggestion for conversation starters for the dinner table. I might try these this week. I will let you know how that goes.

Conversation Starters for kids

So heres her **Chime In**
How is the Making Your Home a Haven Challenge going in your house?  For the most part going well, I remembered almost every day. The days I didn't is because we weren't going be home. And on Sat mornings I do but not on Sundays. 
Here's what it pretty much looked like all last week, this week the same. But you get the point. LOL 

Do you have your candle and music going? Every morning except for Sunday, I usually forget after we get home for church. 
What is your favorite thing to do for fun with your family? Favorite thing to do for fun with family is anything. Anytime I'm with them it's fun making memories. Walks, movie theatres, outings, etc. 
What is your favorite board game to play with your family? Favorite board game is "Sorry", it's easy and fun and my daughter always wins. I love her face when she wins.
Share a special memory with your family, from your childhood. I will share when my dad would take us out Christmas Tree shopping and one year he added fake snow to it. That was the best I still remember the day it was a crisp December Evening at it was close to Christmas. So it was a cold one, and I remember the bright light shining in the lot and there must have been a fire going outside because I remember the smell of smoke, not cigarettes but wood burning smoke. And I remember my Dad saying "And add the fake snow". I was the happiest little girl in town that night.

What is the Truth?

What is the truth?
Truth is not a feeling. Truth is not an idea. The truth is found in the Bible.Sincerity and good works do not bridge the gap of sin between God and man. Only the blood of Jesus can cleanse a person (Heb. 9:22; John 14:6). Sincerity and good works are merely the reliance upon what is in the individual to merit favor with God. Sincerity is a form of pride when it is appealed to as a justification for being accepted by God: "But God, look at my heart. See how sincere I was? I deserve to be in heaven."No. If sincerity and good works were good enough to satisfy God, then He wouldn't have given us the Bible to correct our sincerely wrong ideas, and He wouldn't have sent His Son to do what our good works cannot.Truth is what God says is true.The truth is important not because it is simply true. It is important because truth is what defines who and what we believe in.Eternity is a long time to be wrong. Especially about Jesus.

What me and my Family Believe

What We Believe
WE BELIEVE the worship of God should be spiritual! Therefore we remain flexible so the Holy Spirit may direct our worship.
WE BELIEVE the worship of God should be inspirational! Therefore we give a great place to music in our worship.
WE BELIEVE the worship of God should be intelligent! Therefore, in our services, we emphasize Bible teaching so God may instruct us how He would be worshipped.
WE BELIEVE the worship of God should be fruitful! Therefore we look for His love in our lives as the greatest evidence that we are truly worshipping Him.

How To Know God

How to Know God

Realize that you are a sinner. No matter how good a life we try to live, we still fall miserably short of being a good person. That is because we are all sinners. We all fall short of God’s desire for us to be holy. The Bible says, “No one is good—not even one” (Romans 3:10 NLT). This is because we cannot become who we are supposed to be without Jesus Christ.Recognize that Jesus Christ died on the cross for you.The Bible tells us, “But God showed His great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while were still sinners” (Romans 5:8 NLT). This is the Good News, that God loves us so much that He sent His only Son to die in our place when we least deserved it.Repent of your sin.The Bible tells us to “repent and be converted” (Acts 3:19 NKJV). The word repent means to change our direction in life. Instead of running from God, we can run toward Him.Receive Jesus Christ into your life.Becoming a Christian is not merely believing some creed or going to church on Sunday. It is having Christ Himself take residence in your life and heart. Jesus said, “Behold, I stand at the door (of your life) and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in...” (Revelation 3:20 NKJV).

If you would like to have a relationship with Christ, simply pray this prayer and mean it in your heart.

Dear Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner. I believe you died for my sins. Right now, I turn from my sins and open the door of my heart and life. I confess you as my personal Lord and Savior. Thank you for saving me. Amen.If you just prayed that prayer and meant it, Jesus Christ has now taken residence in your heart! Your decision to follow Christ means God has forgiven you and that you will spend eternity in heaven.

The Bible tells us, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9 NKJV).

Praise the Lord, if you just asked Jesus in your heart I want you to know that the Angels in Heaven are rejoicing for you and so am I. Go to and click on churches to find the closest church to you and go. Go and tell them that you've just accepted the Lord Jesus Christ into your heart. They will be able to lead you to the next step.

God Bless you Brethren.
In the Mighty Name of Jesus!!! Amen!!!
Your sister in Christ Jesus!!!
