Sweet Memory Sunday

We have been trying, and trying, and trying to get Rose to pray. I hate to admit it but I have even offered her coins for her piggy bank if she would...for some reason she just doesn't like to. But Brian and I have faithfully been having her say her prayers before bed-the one prayer we won't let her get out of. Last night she fianlly said her prayer ON HER OWN! It was so sweet and it felt like heaven was in the room with us! Rosie's prayer went like this, "Heavenly Father, Thank you for basketball(she played with her Daddy earlier that day). And Thank you for cookies (we had made cookies). Amen. That was it, and it was beautiful! It reminded me of how complicated my prayers have become when truly all I need to do is thank heavenly father for the little things that I am blessed with every day:)

  1. Prayers have always been a battle for us with Cami, too. Since starting preschool at a Christian Church, she has become much more willing. she sees us trying to teach Noah, she is more willing to do it. I think she is just a child that has to be self-motivated. Or at least "Motivated by anyone besides her parents..." I have a feeling she's going to be a HARD teenager. ;)
