  1. Hey there are some pretty concerning profiles popping up on here. Just looking out.

    Mom of 3 girlss

    Awesome! Glad to see you here! How old are your girls?? Hope you are having a fun weekend together!
  3. I am really sorry to hear about this. I think I would ask her to have a very serious conversation with her and ask her to repent and then talk about marriage and how marriage is a picture of Christ and the church. That might change her view of premarital relationships. Sadly this is the way of the world today, and it is personally why I have opted to become a separatist for my family’s sake. She might be under a lot of social pressure and obviously this boyfriend of hers is not a Christian, or at least not truly if he acts like he is. The whole thing sounds frustrating. I am very sorry.
  4. This might be better suited in the homeschool topic, but I have been using the "Our Daily Bread" as a supplement to our daily bible reading passages for homeschool and I wondered if anyone has a specific program for Bible study with their homeschool that they really like. I have been trying to find something that I can enjoy as much as the kids, and while the daily bread passages are great, truly they are great, they are a little too "stereotypical" for me. I want more of a convicting experience I guess than what they offer at this point? I am not sure how to word that, perhaps something more serious? Less emotionally appeasing and more based on truth even if it hurts? I really don't know the words I am looking for but if anyone has a recommendation I would love to hear it!

    Stay at Home Mom

    I have 3 kids, ages 3, 6, and 7. I have a lot on my plate with my youngest not having an age sibling, and my oldest two are Irish twins more or less so it has been interesting as I learn to find ways for them to include my youngest. The oldest are boy and girl, and the youngest a girl. If you homeschool, it might be beneficial to let the older two help teach the youngest when she starts classes. My oldest daughter teaches my youngest things like colors and shapes and helps her practice letter sound flash cards. That has worked really well for me, while my son is responsible for helping my youngest access anything she needs in the house like her step stool to wash her hands, get her a drink in the kitchen, or help her do her laundry etc. I find giving my older ones a chance to be older and spend time with my youngest has been the most fun for everyone. I had to be present a lot in the beginning to prevent bullying or "parenting". I do not want them treating her like she is less than, I just wanted them to learn to teach her and help her in a loving way and it is working so far. I relate to the feeling of exhaustion, my husband works all day long it feels like and with world events we are at a home a LOT these weeks... I promise you are not alone but try to get enough sleep. Make it happen if you can, that seems to be the only thing that helps. I find I have to get about 9 hours a night to function at the highest level possible day in and day out, so the nights I don't I try to get a nap with the kids. On the haircut thing - and the real reason I am responding LOL - I intentionally have not cut my hair since Nov. 2019 as I am going a decade without them if I can help it. I want rapunzel hair I decided. LOL! So maybe embrace the hair! Hope you are doing better now than in November. -FOTS
  6. I found you and was able to subscribe! You’ve made a lot of really good Bible study videos thank you so much for sharing!!! 😁
  7. Absolutely will! I sure hope you feel better soon. I had a very minor procedure done on my foot and it’s quite burdensome, I could not imagine breaking my leg!
  8. Hello! How neat that you post to YouTube! I cannot seem to get the link you posted to work, any chance you could try to copy/paste it again? Glad to see you here! Welcome!
  9. Great to have you! How did you come across the forums here?
  10. Hello! Welcome to the forums, I hope you are doing well and enjoying your weekend! (Hey it's been a few Saturdays since you posted this, but it's Saturday again so it counts in my book!)
  11. It is more important than ever to stay healthy, but I wanted to note that I saw in very recent news that the average person has gained 30 pounds since the beginning of quarantine. This makes me very nervous as we all know obesity is a horrible killer in this country, and the claim is that obesity is a risk factor for COVID... So I guess I am mostly responding to this topic to strongly encourage everyone to use a BMI calculator. A healthy BMI is 18.5-24.9 and anything over or under is overweight or underweight. If nothing else, I encourage everyone to do what they can to keep themselves in the healthy range. If Obesity is TRULY a risk for covid, then controlling your own weight is probably more important than wearing a mask. Sure a mask "slows spread"... but controlling our weight might prevent death if what they are saying is true. Hope everyone is staying healthy.
  12. Woohoo! I am a SAHM and I love it! I hope to meet others on this site as well!!

    MOTHER'S DAY

    Happy Mother's Day fellow Moms!
  14. I hope I do not come across as rude, but as a genuine question, as a middle school boy why would you be joining a site called Christian Moms? It just seems off, and the fact that you also only joined to post this and then respond to the pandemic situation post with saying your mom teaches that the pandemic is god punishing us? IDK - I just don't feel like you came here with honest intentions and so I restate my question as a response to yours -- Why are you here looking for answers as a middle school boy?
  15. Just thought I would update this thread, I tried clicking the link and it says that site is no longer available and I also cannot find this app on the iPhone App Store at this time. I like looking into new opportunities such as what was suggested by the original poster, so if anyone else happens to try this app and gets it to work I would love to know, but I suspect it is here and gone already.
