Bedtime for Baby Book Reviews: 100 Favorite Bible Verses for Children

My mother in law recently celebrated her 90th birthday.  Several of our family and friends from all over came to celebrate with us.  As part of her birthday celebration, some family members joined us for worship service.  Many of them grew up in the church my family and I attend and I had so much fun listening to their memories of Sunday School, church programs and speeches.
The family laughed and laughed recalling how nervous they were and how one of the older members of the church was always nearby to encourage them and help them recall words of those recitations.  
As I listened to them I thought of all the speeches and recitations my kids have had at that same church and all the times I've stood nearby to help them if they forgot the words to the speeches we spent weeks learning.  Sometimes the recitations were poems but most of the time, the speeches were Bible verses.

My sister and I went shopping and I was drawn to the laundry appliances.

First things first.  I want an azure blue front loading washer and the matching dryer.  I saw this while attending a social media conference earlier this year and fell in love.
Blue is one of my favorite colors and everyone else seems to have the red or …
