Why yes, I am going to a concert. Called Man Up. :)

So, it's kind of funny, but I'm not (too) embarrassed to say it. We're going to the Man Up Concert tonight, as part of Reach Record's Man Up Conference on Biblical Manhood. Yes, we. The Concert tonight is open to the ladies too. Although, it's funny that us two white folks who have no rhythm are headed to praise God with lots of really cool, godly folks through the medium of Christian hip-hop.

And, I'm so, so excited. This is my gift to my amazing husband (who introduced me to my love of Christian rap. I was slow to catch on, but now I sincerely love it. Most songs anyway!), who is about to turn 30. I'm so thankful for my man.

Why do I like Christian rap? Glad you asked!

Quiche for Lunch

Just a little silly picture of Mr. I-take-my-bib-off-when-you-aren't-looking.  Eating quiche. 
And laughing at his big brother, who is, in fact, quite funny.

Tiny Kids and Easter!

I want to link up, with permission, to these precious videos of a very sweet girl, who is a very special friend of ours. Nate loves Rebekah!

In these videos, many things stand out to me... (besides just how cute our little friend is...)
-How you can teach tiny kids big truths...
-expressing the sadness of the death of Jesus (as Nate says, "Jesus had a lot of owies." Not sure how you spell owies.)
-expressing the joy of the fact that Jesus is Alive!

We did a very adapted version of these - And, I've been trying to follow Noel Piper's recommendation to gather all of your books about Easter and children's Bibles in one spot and read about the death and resurrection of Jesus often!!

Of course, we also have been re-kindling our love for this song. (Dustin and I are going to our first Christian rap concert soon... more on this on another day! Ha!)

Just thought I'd share some fun, simple, frugal ideas that have been helpful in keeping the discussion going with our 2 year old.

Psalm 23.
