I was a stay-at-home mom and volunteering at CFC & Hebron before I started my job here.  That is most likely what I would be doing.

Other than the Bible, what’s the best book you’ve read recently?

Raising Kingdom Kids by Tony Evans.  If you are a parent of a school-aged child (18 or younger) and you haven't read this book, stop reading this post and order it now.  I also have a few extra copies to share, so if you are in the elementary hallway this weekend, stop and ask me about it. :)

If that doesn't apply to you (or even if it does), I also recommend Listen, Love, Repeat:Other-Centered Living in a Self-Centered World by Karen Ehman.
