Be faithful in small things…

Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies.

It is hard to be faithful in some small things, especially when waiting.
Yet we can always distract ourselves with things that can grab our attention at the moment such as..
some great games that I found by accident for my phone. 🙂
M and I had an evening of no TV, no distractions but just enjoying each other’s company along with playing a game that we both enjoy.  So it was our spur of the moment game night. 🙂
Which is where I found What’s the Word: 4 pics 1 word*.
I had seen friends play this on Facebook but never understood the “hype” until we started playing it.  It is so hard to figure out a word at times but it was a good game to play with M.  He was not so competitive (as he usually is) but he was stumped at times with the words as well.
We also discovered Category Quiz (Trivia) **, which is a bit like Jeopardy but different.
It was a very fun, you learn something new game to play.  Of course, both games were played on a phone but it was still enjoyable to not have any distractions and enjoy time together. 🙂
What fun “game night” games have you found?
Do share in the comments. 🙂

4 Apps to Help You Grow in Your Faith

4-Apps

If you enjoy using applications that help you grow in your faith, these are 4 applications that I enjoy using to help me stay grounded in my faith but also share with others.

FamilyLife FamilyLife (Free)*

Download: Iphone | Android

I enjoy using this application as you can listen to the audio podcasts from previous shows while also being able to see their Art of Marriage series (Android app only).  The Iphone app is only devoted to the audio segments while the Android app details more resources for families, women, and growing in your faith.

God Tools

God Tools (Free)*

Download: Iphone  | Android

God Tools is a wonderful tool to share the Gospel.  It incorporates the four booklets from Cru (formerly Campus Crusade for Christ) as follows:

  1. Would You Like to Know God Personally? (target audience: general/college student)
  2. Connecting With God (target audience: high schoolers/teenagers)
  3. The Four Spiritual Laws (target audience: general)
  4. Satisfied? (target audience: general)

    The first three booklets offer a simple and straightforward gospel message, while “Satisfied?” helps Christians understand what it means to truly walk in the power of the Holy Spirit.

    It is a great resource to have available when disciplining a new believer as there are wonderful articles within the app as well.

Jesus Film Project

As someone who has personally used this app to share the gospel with family members in their native language, it is amazing! From Jesus Film Media:
