Focus on the Family


One neat thing about living here is that we are practically right down the street from the Focus on the Family Welcome Center. My nephews have been plenty of times but last week was our first time. I was really super impressed with it *and* it was free!

Here are our two little explorers in the toddler room but there are all kinds of neat things like a puppet stage, a Narnia room complete with wardrobe you can walk into (the closet room as my four year old nephew likes to call it), a huge three story slide that I've heard only kids can go on as you can bet this big kid would give it a try if they let me.

I met a mom who was there with her little girl who moved here from Waco. Two Texans trying to understand snow in May. We plan to get together for a playdate.

God is so gracious in providing for us as we navigate the emotional ups and downs of this move.

If you come to visit we can take you to Focus on the Family. hint, hint.

I went there years ago -- it's such a neat place. And, yes, God is so faithful to bless us in small and big ways, especially during times of transition.

Wow looks like such a neat place! How blessed you are to be so close now! Your family is in our thoughts and prayers through this time of change. Hope all is going well! I LOVE all the pics of Little Man's first birthday! How fun!! It made me think about and remember little details from Hunter's first birthday. What a special thing! :) He is SO cute!

How fun! Living there before kids we never really explored the kids' area. Looks neat! Yay, for new mom friends! I still love listening to the Focus broadcasts each day...it makes cleaning the kitchen go faster!

Jes and I toured Focus on the Family when we were out there for our first anniversary--well before kids and for the life of me I just barely remember that there was a kids area, but we had absolutely no use for it. It is funny how 3 kids later our first thoughts are "where can we find fun play areas for the kids." And I LOVE finding fun and free play areas like this one. Our mall has a very small one and it is great for days when we have to get out of the house but the weather is dreadful or when we just have a little bit of time to kill between appointments. Maybe we will just have to plan to come play with you there sometime.

Based on my own experiences I am going to make
five recommendations that I wish someone
had made to me to help take the fear out of fitness.
You have to find a way to take the tips you learn and make maximum use of them.
Nothing is more motivating than seeing physical proof

The new tablet would be a further extension of

Both the content and presentation of news are drastically different from what
it used to be. You can only visit once a day and there is
no guarantee that you will get anything from it but as I always say,
free is free.
