simplify their lives. She reminds us to be careful not to
fall into the trap of serving everyone, everywhere
except those whom the Lord would have us serve. Also, practical

or just plain old distractions can pull us away from hearing the

wife's most important earthly priority. She offers practical

needs during difficult times. Judy then shares great tips on how
to have fun again after lifeís storms.

own children and how she used those moments to build their faith. She also shares some surprising pitfalls that can
hinder their spiritual growth. Judy also offers solid
suggestions and parenting skills that help equip children for
life and at the same time allows busy moms to involve their
children more in the day-to-day activities and duties that need
to be accomplished.
