You may have noticed that we call the Friday post at Frontline Moms  "Family Fun." We spend so much of the week Unmasking and frontlining and aiming for the remnant, we need a little dose of Family Fun come Friday!

My daughter Tara is going to help us with this. She is a blogging mama and is going to help us link up with all the Mamas who know how to have fun! In fact Tara posted a Family Fun post today about potty training, so please click over and take a look.

Friday will be the day you can post your Family Fun blog post for us to all see.

What kind of fun?

 Fun crafts

Fun kid recipes

Fun family outings

Fun mom games, or

Funny stories of your family

 Next week she is going to give you all the technical details to this operation.

Here's our new button so you can get the word out:

Here is my family fun for this week:

How To Make Your Kids BEG To Have Family Devotions

My husband is the master fun maker. I am so glad my kids have a dad who knows how to play!

Do you have a time of family devotions with your family? We are big advocates of this and tell everyone the power of studying the Word together.

However, one of the biggest keys to our success is that my husband refuses to be stodgy!!!!

Here is one of his wacky ideas he recently brought to family devotion time:

Walk in with your Bible. Sit everyone down as normal. Then tell everyone to pick four numbers.  It catches them off guard!

Doug had brought his goody box with him that day. Yes, dad maintains a goody box of random odd gifts.

Some are only good for a teen laugh but shows the love of the daddy. But how about holding out your sale items that would give a cheap thrill? And every now and then a Wal-Mart gift card.

Four numbers. Everyone picked. Nobody won. SO we picked again. No one won again. So we kept going and going....laughing and shouting until someone finally won.

Then we closed the day in quoting a few family memory verses and prayed ourselves on to a joyful day.

Keep them wondering what will happen when you come to family devotions!!
