Accountability Questions

I bought a book for my husband and son called Boyhood and Beyond: Practical Wisdom for Becoming a Man by Bob Schultz and it has questions at the end of each chapter. Here is a sample from the chapter on temptation (page 61):

What invitations to do evil did you get today? Did you take any?

If you accept an evil invitation, what will happen to you?

When faced with a temptation, what question should you ask?

Did you accept any invitations to do good today?

These questions would be useful in an accountability situation for anyone.

I'm reading a new book entitled, One Month to Live: Thirty Days to a No-Regrets Life by Kerry & Chris Shook. This book asks the hard questions and challenges the reader to live as if life as we know it is about to end. Over the next little while I will share some of the questions asked in the book...

Are you doing anything in your life right now that requires faith? If not, why not? Are you looking at life from God's perspective or from a ground-level perspective?

For more info go to the book's website.

I'm Still Here...

Hello to anyone who might possibly pop in... Just wanted to say that I'm still alive and well, just really busy with my life in the real world. I haven't had much time to blog or check blogs lately, but miss reading and writing blogs. I still try to post Scripture and Quotes to those blogs and to my Reading Room Blog, but haven't been as faithful here because this one takes the most effort...

My kids are doing well (although sick with allergy issues now) and the baby is growing so fast - 5 1/2 months old - where has the time gone?

Keep me in your prayers that I am the wife and mother that God wants me to be.

Mideast Geography Lesson

Yesterday a friend told me about a cool tool that can help us to learn the countries in the middle east. Did you know "the Middle East" stretches as far west as the Western Sahara in Africa? What is the smallest Middle Eastern country?

Go to this site and drag the country's name onto the map where you think it belongs. There is no score nor time limit, but rather this exercise is a learning tool. Once you finish the puzzle, do it again and again until you can do it without a miss. You will be far more educated about this very intense part of our world.

For more educational tools go to World Atlas or CIA World Factbook,
