Pray Always

We have been working hard on teaching Beth to pray and getting better on family prayer. Beth has been really into being the one to say the prayer at family prayer and getting better at saying a lot of it on her own, but I wasn't sure how far it was all sinking in... until today. We were at the grocery store, just shopping along, I was stopped at the boxed meals and she was looking them by my side when she just suddenly bowed her head and started to pray! The prayer went something like this:

Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank you for this day. Thank you that we could come to the grocery store. Please bless that Grandma will get better. Please bless that we will be safe.

And then she just went back to the cart and went on her way. Who knows what prompted her to do that, but to me it was a pretty amazing example. We are all supposed to pray always, and here my little 2-year-old was praying over a trip to the grocery store...To be like a little child!

What a sweet girl! Isaac still doesn't pray...I don't know what we're doing wrong with that kid.

What's wrong with grandma?

Ryan's mom had her hip replaced a couple of weeks ago, its been a really rough recovery, so we've done a lot of praying for her, so Beth always remembers, she even reminds me when I forget in my prayers!

That is so sweet! Isn't it great when your kids do something on their own that you've been trying to teach them? Way to go Beth!!
