Mind Over Chatter
One night after our family bedtime prayer our three year old, Adia, asked, Mommy, is it bad for me to think about other things while were talking to God?
I explained to her how important prayer was and said that she should do her best to concentrate on God while were spending this time with Him.
She replied, I know thatits just my brain. I try to tell it to be quiet, but its always talking!

When my daughter, Stephanie was in first grade, we were doing a study about the White House. One day, she was showing a collectors plate bearing a picture of the White House to a friend, and anxiously telling him all the things she had been learning.
Do you know where the White House is located? he asked her.
Thinking very carefully, she answered, a bit hesistantly, Its Washington, something. Then her eyes lit up, and she shouted, I remember! Its Washington Deceit!
She couldnt have been closer to the truth!

One Smart Bird
One pleasant morning I was reading to my children about crows, Their adaptability has enabled them to multiply because they are unlikely to face food shortages. At that time my third grader, who was struggling to memorize his multiplication tables, interrupted in amazement, and said, A bird knows how to multiply?!!
