Ok Ok I KNOW I need to update my blog. AND I WILL but first thing is first... I need to blog about a contest in order to enter it. So... here goes!
I just entered a contest to win the first book in the Prep for Parenting series of Growing kids God's way. I really really want to win this book. I really really want to own all of these books!
This is the parenting strategy that Ty and I have decided to raise our children on and so far we LOVE it! We decided we wanted a reason for everything we did and do. So if something that we do seems weird to you...just ask us WHY! We would LOVE to tell you and with these books even back up our actions with scripture! Ok we also make mistakes so there will be times when you ask and we can't remember (sarah you do this and I love you for it!) so we go back and reevaluate! Either way it works for us and we've decided that no matter what we do as long as we are doing it for God then hopefully we are able to say we've done the best we could do.
The secular version of these books is called the "wise-series". Tabor has mastered Babywise 1&2 and we are currently moving to Pre-toddlerwise. Someday I hope to be blogging about the Teen-wise section. Yep I plan to read all 18years worth of these books and hopefully the Growing kids God's way version too (these are a little more expensive which is why I'm trying to win it!!)
Anyway...there you go. Want to know why we teach Tabor sign language, why he plays in his playpen for 30min to an hour a day or why he sleeps 12 hours at night. Trust me we'll talk your ear to death telling you why we love these books! Yes yes we know the next baby won't be as easy but we hope that keeping God as our focus that the joys of parenting are still as much fun as they've been so far!
If you're interested in entering the contest too just go to this blog! It's the place that has answered all my questions from last April to today!
I'm a woman of God, a baker, a daughter, a sister and now also a Mommy! I love to travel, pray and eat chocolate! You can usually find me bouncing around my house playing mommy & teacher!

My hubby, my prince charming and my best friend. He's a man that lives for God and is an amazing father! He loves to sing worship songs, is learning to play the guitar and probably wishes he could be playing football or lifting weights instead of sitting in an office all day! He's a blast to be around and is the best part of my day everyday! Ty's Verse: "God testified concerning him: ‘I have found David son of Jesse, a man after my own heart; he will do everything I want him to do." -Acts 13:22
Tabor Nolan Touchstone was born on April 5th, 2011 at 5:58pm. He was 7lbs 15oz and 19 inches long. We love this new addition to our family more than words could ever say. God has truly blessed us with this perfect little miracle. We love you TNT! Your Verse: ""one will come who is like Tabor among the mountains" -Jeremiah 46:18
Titus Slade Touchstone was born on October 29th, 2012 at 7:53am. He was 7lbs 13oz and 19.5 inches long. What a blessing this little man is to our family and what a precious gift it is to be blessed by God with love for another little boy. God is so good. We love you sweet Titus! Your Verse: "But God, who comforts the downcast, comforted us by the coming of Titus" 2 Corinthians 7:6
