More glitter

This is why we had glitter out. Once a month we have a family night focused on putting on the armor of God. This week we made shields of Faith. The above shield was Lizzy's.

This was mine. John's had a lion (Aslan--he's obsessed with Narnia right now) and Zoey's was a smiley face that said, "Love one another." Will's was even more abstract.

Will puts his new shield to use as he fights a dragon fruit. At least once a day, Will puts on his armor and informs me, "Mom, I going out to fight dragons now."

The dragon fruit look seriously dangerous!

Hard to miss all the talks about faith at during conference. Testimonies can be so fragile-- I think I've been trying to protect my faith instead of using faith as a shield. I'm going to think about that image today.

I love that you are posting again! I have missed you and the family. The glitter posts are awesome and Bill being a Nazi reminds me on Nathan's very similar feelings towards glitter.

I am always so impressed when I hear about your FHE lessons. What a great idea! Harrison loved reading all the Narnia books this summer. I'm loving these updates!
