I have been encouraged by reading blog posts from other mothers who recognise the importance of our task in bringing up children in a Christian way. "Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it." Proverbs 22:6

A thought.

Just a quick post to share something that has been of help to me:
My five year old daughter has been asking me again and again lately to tell her what heaven is like. It's such a good topic to dwell on. There is so much pain and suffering in this world, but we have a future and a hope. I cut a slogan from the back of a cereal packet (of all places!) last week and put it on the fridge as a reminder to live life consciously. It says: "When the time comes, will you be ready?"


  1. Wow...very eye opening and thought provoking! Thank you for the reminder Amaria! God bless!

  2. What if we all had the same faith and thought-provoking questions as your sweet daughter? It's easy to get pulled into the stress and hustle of the world but when we take the time to stop and really think about the amazing blessings that the Lord has given is, it is always so awesome...so wonderful..and so mind-settling. :) Great post!

  3. Thanks for the reminder! When people say "I am not ready to go yet" that is like snubbing God's ultimate gift!

  4. Lovely to have little ones in the home in these enlightened times, when they are encouraged to question and chat.
