Bible Review: The Evangelism Study Bible

Sturdy hardback bible with a fishing net on the cover that matches the cover scripture, "follow me , and I will make you fishers of men." Matthew 4:19.
 
Open the bible and you will find a presentation page followed by a list of all the evangelism articles that are organized by books of the bible.  I'm  guessing that there are over 200 half page articles related to evangelism, such as:
  • How to explain the gospel clearly
  • How to overcome fear in evangelism
  • Humility and evangelism
  • Ministering to the poor
  • Your past-no problem
  • How to reach children who are rebellious
There are also cross references and footnotes that help readers recognize evangelism messages  throughout the old and New Testament.  Scrolling to the end of the bible, there is a 3 page glossary of evangelistic bible terms, and a very long concordance. Finally there is a 3 page outline of how to share the gospel, several pages for taking notes and an index to the 14 colorful pages of maps.
 
This would be a great resource for any teen or Adult that wants to know more about evangelism, and gather tools to help share the good news of Christ with others.
 
I received this book as a gift from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.

Children's Prayers During Meals

The Armistead family taught our children a lovely blessing to sing at the dinner table. It is sung to the tune of the children's classic song, Are You Sleeping?

God our Father
God our Father
Once Again
Once Again
We bow our heads to thank you
Bow our heads to thank you
Amen
Amen

We love this blessing, and we've recently adapted it to involve younger children and guests. Instead of everyone singing each phrase twice, we sing it as an 'echo prayer'. One child leads the song, starting with the first phrase, "God our Father". The rest of the table echoes. Then the leader leads the second phrase , "once again", before waiting for the table to echo. And so forth, until the whole blessing is sung.

It's an easy way to remind our children (and ourselves) to give thanks to our Provider and Sustainer throughout the day.

Goody Bags for Marriage Retreat - please share your ideas!

Reader Question:
I am in charge of creating 74 goody bags for an upcoming marriage retreat for my church, and I am in desperate need for some frugal, creative ideas on what I could put in these bags. In the past I know people have put little candy bars, a bag of microwave popcorn, a couple of packs of hot chocolate, tea bags etc so I was looking for ideas that might be something similar, but maybe a little different too. Would you have any fun thoughts on this?

A Few Ideas:
Visit www.likemerchantships.blogspot.com - Meredith does a fantastic time being incredibly hospitable on a budget.Our women's retreat coordinators wrapped the following things in a cellophanebag: a mininotebook, a pen, a candle, peppermints, chocolate kisses,and a colored paper quote/scripture. A friend just suggested packing candies that correspond to questions: an almond joy - share a joyful moment in your marriage, a hershey kiss - something about your first kiss, snickers - laughs, lifesavers - when your…

26 Ideas For Lego Storage Containers

My two boys LOVE legos, so they naturally end up scattering lego creations and random lego pieces throughout the house.  Last weekend, we converted their closet to be a LEGO WORLD.  Now they can store lego (and knex) pieces in their lego world, they have instructions for all of their kits in a ziplock bag, and they have a place to display their favorite ships.  And I have a mostly lego-free kitchen and living room!!

I just stumbled upon a great article with ideas for storing legos, if you have similar struggles in your house!  Check this out:  26 Ideas For Lego Storage Containers
