Everyone Loves A Good Story ...

Everyone loves a good story.  So along with telling God's big story of redemption, I've started telling my kids my life story each night - one chapter at a time.  I got the idea from Monte Swan's book, Romancing Your Child's Heart.  It's been fun to see my kids get so excited to hear the next chapter of my life from the serious times (like the day I was born and wasn't breathing very well) to the funny times (like the day my brother Mark and I sat together in our mom's laundry basket and zoomed down the steps pretending we were on a bobsled in the Winter Olympics).   Telling our story gives us a unique opportunity to lift our children's eyes to the larger story God has been writing all along.  It's a great way to end the day!
