Meaningful Memories

The holiday season can bring many families together. This year my family and I decided to take family photos and create many memories together. Each picture represents something of an importance to us this holiday season. 

"For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them." Matthew 18:20

1. Prayer- As a family we pray together daily. By doing this, it helps us grow in our faith. We hold each other accountable by ensuring that we all complete our daily devotion for the day. Our relationship with God is the most important aspect of our lives. We express our gratitude to God during prayer as well as, pray for our family, friends and our nation. 

"We love because he first loved us." 1 John 4:19

2. Love- Spreading love is easy! Make sure you express your love verbally and through actions. My family and I find different ways to confirm our love for one another each day. Below i'll share a few of our ways to help you express your love to someone. 

  • Hugs
  • Quick notes
  • Verbal expression
  • Random acts of kindness
  • Surprise gifts
"So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed." -John 8;36

3. Living Free- We live a life free from our past. As parents, we teach our daughter that everyone does something they're not proud of, but you can choose to move forward and learn from it. Living free from regrets, pain and mistreatment etc. is essential. We choose to live a life FREE from bondage. 

"Children, always obey your parents, for this pleases the Lord." -Colossians 3:20

"Children, always obey your parents, for this pleases the Lord." -Colossians 3:20

Obedience- One method we teach our daughter is obedience. We believe that how our child treats us, she will treat others. By doing this, she has learned to respect authority. In exchange, she understands when you give respect you will receive it. 

 

Thank you for learning about how my family incorporates our beliefs into our family photos! I look forward to your responses.
