Congratulations to our winners for the Watching America contest! They are:
Kris Price
Courtney from HeartforHome
…and Emily I think Emily especially deserved one since she attracted the attention from the president and co-founder of  What a neat surprise; you can see the president's response to Emily's comments here.  Pretty cool.
Email me at and tell me where to send your prize.

Today was interesting.  My five year old son, Dippy, came into my room crying his eyes out.  I
thought he was hurt at first.  He was just falling to
pieces.  So I'm asking him what's wrong and then he finally chokes
out, “I lied to you yesterday”, and then he grabbed onto me and bawled
his eyes out.  I hugged him and kissed him and told him I was glad
he came and told me that he lied.  In reality, it made me want to
cry to see how seriously he took his sin.  I hadn't known or even
suspected anything about it. He just came and repented on his
own.  So anyways, I set him in front of me and looked him right in
the eyes and said, “I am really glad you came and told me.  It is
important to never lie.”
and then I asked him sternly, “Do I love you when you lie?
he teared up again and shook his head 'No'

And then I was able to scoop him close to me and hold his little face
in my hands and tell him.  “You're wrong.  I do love you when
you lie. I don't like it if you lie but I will always love you.  Don't ever forget that.”

Lastly, I just now almost burnt down my house; I'll tell you about it later. good grief.

    Aw! Isn’t it great when you can see God working on their conscience! Three cheers for your truthful son!

    You must be so proud!

    PTL, I’m happy for you, there’s only a handful of children that would have done that, and your son happens to be one of them.

    God Bless,

    Oh man! What a great moment with your son! No wonder God loves it when we repent.

    Quote by JenIG on my blog posted Feb. 20th: I will call you tomorrow evening… now correct me if I’m wrong, but that would mean the evening of the 21st right? And since it’s 11pm my time, which is an hour earlier than the Curry Farm… I can only assume I’ve once again, been stood up.

    I think we should break up. I just can’t handle this roller coaster relationship… I think you need to send me some sort of prize or something… that motor home would make everything forgiven…

    Deeply hurt (and tired since I stayed up waiting by the phone),

    What a mom!

    I love when those unsolicited confessions come out. It means the HS is working! What a lesson your ds needed to learn and hear from your lips……that you love him even when he lies……like God does for us! You sound like a great mom!

    Aww! That is so sweet.

    Almost burned the house down? Was it the wood stove or were you cooking again?

    how sweet

    what a sweet boy you have. sometimes i wonder, especially about my emeline, if her heart ever gets heavy with sin. like tonight i reminded her when she wanted to go first getting her hair rolled (see blog for more info on that) was she being humble? “i don’t care about that,” she replied. i guess we’ll review those scriptures again tomorrow. sigh.

    What's your secret?!

    Oh, I can only pray my little one will do that eventually! She’s so much like me at that age. Which, of course, is why we’re homeschooling …

    Now I’m envious again, and I’m just going to have to go repent again … ; )

    My little Hannah did a similar thing on Saturday. She went to a birthday party and played Pin-the-Tail on the donkey. Later, she tearfully confessed to being able to see under the blindfold!

    Can't have it all

    So, you almost burned the house down but at least you’re doing an awesome job raising godly children! That’s pretty classy. Just don’t take this whole “on fire for God” thing so literally next time. Maybe we should all send you some of those plug-in candles…

    Okay, I am seriously missing my boys right now…
