I Try to Raise My Kids to Be the Best They Can Be – 300 Days of Writing Prompts Day 2

Have you ever spoken up when you saw something going on that was wrong? Were you scared? What ended up happening? As an introvert, I live a pretty sheltered lifestyle. I don’t see much of anything as far as the social part of life goes. What I do is usually on social media. There’s absolutely no reason to state your opinion there because it usually ends with you making a fool out of yourself, and no opinions changing. Most of my experience in standing up for what is right is with my children and for my children. Children can be little devils sometimes. No one’s child is exempt from it. The most loving child can turn into a bully. It is our job to make sure that is not a lifelong career. I listen to the conversations of my kids frequently, and am in communication with their teachers on almost a daily basis. I believe it is important to be active in your child’s life. Many schools believe the same as well. We’ve had success with it thus far, and our oldest has made it to Middle School with us meddling. There has been times when we have overheard our...

Lazy Day Blues – 300 Days of Writing Prompts – Day One

Fall is beginning to settle in the air. I know some of you lucky people are still hanging on to dear life for your warm weather. However, where I’m from, we don’t leave the house without a coat already. They’re calling for snow, and it’s a whole month before Thanksgiving still. This is ridiculous. On days like this, my home becomes my sanctuary. As a nerd, I find these moments to catch up on all my nerdy things. DC TV I love my comic book heroes. Many of you may already know, and if you don’t, you live in the dark ages, that DC Comics has placed several of their heroes on the television is series format. Arrow, Flash, Supergirl, and Legends of Tomorrow. I follow these series like they are a soap opera. I have to admit, I may be a bit of a couch potato. On the bright side, I usually do my catching up during my night time hours as to not interfere with my very busy day time hours. But we are talking about a lazy day here. On a lazy day, I might catch up faster than I should. Self Education One has to be...

I ran down the stairs as fast as I could. I did not want to miss the bus. “ZOOM!” said the sound of me speeding. I was a...

The Green Thing : A Writing Prompt by My Daughter

Once a week, my daughter will look through all the writing prompt ideas you readers have left on my social media. She will choose one person’s idea, abd write a short story about it all from her own mind. She sits at the computer undistrurbed without any prompting from us. We just go through to correct spelling and grammar for search engine compatibility.  Here is her newest story. I was in class at the time, and my teacher was talking about summer vacation and stuff like that. All of the sudden a meteorite crashed into the schools lawn right after Mr.Douglas just got done mowing it. Everyone was going all cray cray about it. “Settle down students,” Mrs.Lucky said looking out the window. You should have seen her face. I was dying from me laughing. We all ran outside, and Mrs. Kelly, our principal, came too. “Are you sure that it’s a meteorite?” I asked. It’s not. It was an egg; a giant egg, and its hatching. “That’s so cool!” said Cameren, who always says “cool” to everything. POP! A cute little, green, fluffy looking thing popped right out of the giant egg. “Awwwweee,” said all the girls except for...

The Mission to El Salvador: Bringing Light Back to the Eyes of Children

If you missed the previous posts check here: Our Journey Begins Free Medical Clinic for a Nation in Crisis Bringing Light Back into the Eyes of Children Feeding the Hungry Blooper Reels   We have completed our third day in El Salvador! If you haven’t been following along, I’ll give you a moment to catch up. The team met at our host church today for a Children’s service. The host church is named Voz De Salvacion (Voice of Salvation). We put together a one day vacation Bible school with our pastor’s daughter at the helm. The team worked together fluidly to assist in everything that needed done. With gang violence and poverty running wild in El Salvador, the kids suffer as well. The streets are not safe. They have to be concerned at every corner. They have a real reason to be afraid of the dark. They have to help their families earn a living from even a young age, and some are just not allowed to simply be a kid. Consumed International Ministries, through your help, was able to give them a safe haven today if but for a moment. They laughed. They danced. They got to be young...
