I won something!
A few weeks ago, I found a fun blog, “4 Reluctant Entertainers.” Sandy had me at the title. I would definitely consider myself a reluctant entertainer. I love having people in my home, but I just can’t seem to get it together enough to entertain as much as I would like. And when I do have company, I cause myself so much stress beforehand that I’m a puddle by the time of the event. (I’m a perfectionist but I’m just not very good at it.) “4 Reluctant Entertainers” is helping me to see that entertaining is mostly about sharing your life with the people in it. I can do that, right?
Anyway, a couple of days ago, Sandy offered us an opportunity to win her husband’s (Paul Coughlin) book, No More Jellyfish, Chickens or Wimps: Raising Secure, Assertive Kids in a Tough World.
As a parent, I find it hard to balance teaching my children to respond the way Jesus would, with teaching them to be confident, strong, and secure. I’m hoping this book will give me greater insight on how to do a better job at that.
Tomorrow, I’ll be linking up with my friend Meredith for 10 on the 10th. I will, that is, if I can think of 10 things to tell you. I might just have to sleep on it.
