Q & A

Moms, do your kids ask you 743 questions a day? Mine do! Sometimes it's hilarious; sometimes it's overwhelming, sometimes I don't know the answers. I love getting little glimpses into their heart and mind. So many times their questions are great opportunities for me to share the Gospel with them, to teach them more about the Jesus I love, to share Scripture to guide and shape their thoughts. And daily, when I feel completely inadequate for the task of molding these little precious souls, I pray!!! 

James 1:5 If any of you lacks wisdom let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him.

And if you don't have kids of your own or they can't talk yet, here are some questions I got TODAY to help get you prepared:

“Can you buy me a boat? Or should I tell Spiderman to buy me one?”

Does “gay” mean a boy likes another boy?

“Is Lady Gaga Drunk?”

“Are people allowed to be mean to orphans in America?’

“Do you like hearing me sing?’

“Do you know how tall the shortest NBA players are?’

“Why do I have more freckles?”

"Can plants grow on Mars? Why not?"

And if you have great answers, please tell me!!!!!

1. sure, tell spiderman to buy you a boat. or get a job and save up for one.
2. among other things
3. i have no idea, but i wonder the same thing.
4. God doesn't want anyone to be mean to anyone anywhere, but sin messed that all up. so people are mean to orphans and others alike.
5. depends on how loudly and whether or not i'm on the phone.
6. no, but i'll be google does.
7. that's just how God made you.
8. no. no water.

at least, that's how i would start answering them if asked by my kids :)

You didn't mention what a self righteous and no good human being you are each and every day. That's hard to admit, though. I understand.
