Teaching Letters and Serving

One of my blogs I follow is giving away a Curriculum Kit that she has put together. It sounds absolutely amazing! Each week they focused on one letter of the alphabet. They thought about people they knew whose names started with that letter and then blessed those people with something that started with the same letter. The example she gave was making mini muffins for Mrs. Moses, the Millers, and Mark.

Head over the Heavenly Homemakers if you want to enter to win this kit! You don't have to be a homeschooler to use it. I think it would be beneficial to every family with small children. Even if your children know the alphabet, you can still use this as a starting point to instill the love of serving!

First, I need to apologize that I haven't posted in over a month. I can't believe how fast June went. I'm going to try to be more deliberate about posting things again.

Secondly, I've talked to a lot of women lately about the lost art of hospitality. The Amish women don't understand how the "English" can be so inhospitable and the "English" women wish we were more like the Amish in that regard. When someone in the Amish community has a need, there are several other families willing to help out. However, it seems that when others of us have a need (whether it be financial, emotional, physical), there are often times no one willing to help or if there is, not many people step up to the plate. I find it sad that we seem to have lost the art of hospitality. I was pleased to see a few entries on hospitality on a blog I follow. I thought I would share them here.
