Updates: reading, watching, puzzling, celebrating, wearing📚🇺🇸🎇

Reading:

Praying for your Adult Children by Stormie O’Martian….this book is sooo helpful and has really supercharged Dave and I and reminded us of the importance of praying for our children, and what to pray. I know I can feel the prayers of my dear parents and Dave’s parents. What a gift to give your children…that loving time taken to pray for them and focus on different needs and aspects of their lives. God loves when we take the time to do this …there are SOO MANY distractions around us right now- it is even more important to set aside the time to do this.

Hunger games prequel- I can’t even remember the name…of Songbirds and what? (Don’t have internet on my phone right now, so go ahead and help me out and google it for yourself!) it was very good!

Watching:

the making of frozen 2-

we signed up for Disney + just for July, and this docuseries is on there- WOW!!!! Such a fascinating look at how an animated film gets made! So many people working on so many aspects for 4 years!!! Skye and I watched frozen 2 again after and had a greater appreciation for sure!! I feel like it should be required watching for kids when they get old enough to understand…even as young as 6 or 8, we all take those “cartoons” for granted, but the creative work!!! It was honestly so moving to see the orchestra come in and do their work, then the singers/actors….it’s truly a work of art, not to mention the artists and how long it takes them to work on even a tiny aspect of the film. I loved seeing the Disney offices and building too…what a fun place to work.
