Family Night

Tonight we had a family home evening lesson about the window’s mite. I think it was a little confusing for the kids because they don’t understand math at all and I think that is helpful for that lesson. Anyway it is the thought that counts. Nolan was cute at dinner dinner time. As we bowed our heads to say the prayer he said “Heavenly Father”. So Rachel continued to try to help him through the rest of the prayer.

Tonight after the kids went to bed, Rachel and I watched the last lesson of Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University course. It was the lesson on giving and tithing. I think it is my favorite lesson because that is the place I want to be most. I would love to have so much wealth that it would allow me to give much more. I have a feeling that some day I will be at that point.
