Easter Story Hunt
Children love to hunt for Easter eggs. When I was a child, our grandparents put candy and money into Easter eggs and hid them all over their ten-acre property. There was nothing more exciting than hunting for those shiny, plastic Easter eggs with treasures inside.

100 Words of Encouragement for Kids
As a child I was overly sensitive to criticism. Many kids are sensitive because they haven’t yet developed a healthy self-esteem.

30 Day Encouragement Challenge
The other night my daughter walked up beside me and draped her arm across my back, her hand resting on my shoulder. “I feel discouraged, Mom,” she said. My heart broke. She was in the middle of a pretty big challenge, and she was having a down day. I tried to encourage her and offered my love, support, and hope that things would get better.
Sometimes, though, we aren’t aware that our children are down, so we don’t offer our support. That’s why it’s important for us to get in the habit of offering a steady flow of encouragement in bad times and good times. Our 30 Day Encouragement Challenge can help you do that. Look at these words of encouragement for kids, then every day for 30 days, choose one of them to share with your child.

Why You Should Say Yes to Screen Time
It can be the toughest (and most tiring!) thing for a mom to say—No, no, no! No, as in, No, you may not use your (insert name of screen device here). And even when you say no a million times, your kids can still come back to you again and again and again with the same kind of question, “Can I watch a movie? Can I use my iPad? Can I play Xbox?”
So the best way to say no to screen time is to say yes… with conditions. First, come up with your limits. These can be as simple as a set amount of time a day or as complex as different limits on different devices. Be clear on those time limits, then… here’s an idea I love for how to limit screen time.
