The first few weeks we talked about our spiritual life, I was definitely convicted when we spoke about the importance of having quiet time with the Lord. I have been working on that for a while now! Then we spent a few weeks on marriage. I loved the weeks we spent on marriage! I seriously learned so much that I have used and will use in my relationship with James. One of the tips I will not forget are the two most important phrases in a marriage: "I'm Sorry", and "I forgive you". This is so true, but sometimes hard to act out!! :)
The past few weeks we have been talking about raising godly children. A few of the important points I took away were: the importance of praying for our children, being godly examples for them, teaching them scripture and how to read the bible, and just making sure I take the time to be a mommy and not just a homemaker!
I posted before about how much I love the Duggar family. When we started this study in August I was thrilled to learn that Michelle Duggar would be one of our guest speakers! Yesterday was finally the day and her and a few of her older girls along with the TLC cameras came to speak to our bible study! The older girls played their violin and Michelle gave us very helpful tools for raising children!
