This blog was born out my desire to intentionally teach my children about the Lord though creative activities and crafting and to share those ideas with others. It reflects our daily life--sometime mundane and routine, sometimes creative and inspirational.
The concept of Mustard Seeds comes from the parables and metaphors in the New Testament:
The parable of the mustard seed and what I learned in the garden closely reflect my views on motherhood and parenting. As a Christian parent, I want to plant seeds of faith in my little sprouts--Anne, Jack and Beth. They are young and so is their faith; as small as a mustard seed you might say. And, with the proper tending and nurturing they will grow and so will their faith.
I want to be intentional about creatively teaching God's truth to my children on a daily basis. I'm not a perfect parent and I know I make mistakes. Days may pass without "planting" and the best intented activites may fail. Still, I am excited to share this journey with you and hope my posts (especially those under the "Mustard Seeds" category) will encourage you to creatively think about how you, too, can cultivate your child's faith.
