Writing a letter to your confirmation candidate

It seems that one of the biggest events in confirmation preparation in this country is the letters of support to be given to the confirmation candidates during their mandatory retreats.

I have three such letters saved on this blog:

Confirmation letter to my daughterConfirmation letter to my fourth sonConfirmation letter to to my third son
I've asked my children what they remember about the letter they got from me and their dad, and also what they remembered about the letters they received. 
The answer was not much, or at least nothing specific. In general they were happy to have gotten a bag full of letters and there was a sense of feeling loved and supported. I guess that's the main thing - for them to have a sense that this is an important step in their spiritual growth, and that people they know, love and respect have taken the time out of their lives to let them know that!

Works for Me Wednesday - Mozy Stash

A few months ago I blogged about the new Kindle Fire that my kids got me for Christmas!  In just a short amount of time, I have found that I am quite attached to it and take it with me everywhere! It is especially useful when I am waiting at the doctor's office or waiting for kids to finish up lessons or practices of all sorts.

One of the features that I have found indispensable it the Stash App from Mozy! With Stash, I can add PDF files and ebooks that are on my computer over to my Kindle so that I can read them whereever I am!  Add frankly, I am able to finally find time to READ the many eBooks I have on my computer because I can now have them on my Kindle!

Here is a list of some of the homeschooling tools that I have been able to add to my Kindle via Stash.  Now when I want to check something out during our homeschooling hours, I don't have to get on the computer or take a student away from his lap top, I can just access it via my Kindle with a few taps.
Works for Me!

  1. When I read your initial post I thought "they done good. She'll like that gift."

    One thing also you can do with Kindle Fire: whenever you're on the 'net (on desktop or elsewhere) you can save articles you want to read later (offline) to Instapaper, and then have the articles sent to your kindle either weekly or daily. It's pretty nice to have a collection of articles you actually want to read waiting for you even if you're offline.

  2. An Excellent Blogpost Relevant to the Topic. It really generates a new thinking pattern in the viewers. Please pursue with your Blogging Activities.
