Father Son Retreat

Pastor Scott Brown was talking on Friday night at the father-son retreat that you are what you read, watch, and so on. I couldn't put that any better. I like to read books with elves and dwarves and men in conflict with each other or a common enemy. I like reading battles with swords and bow and arrows. And it affects what I am like. I bet I could quote more lines in The Lord of the Rings than I could in the Bible. Sad isn't it? That is probably the biggest area I have to work on... putting God before other things. I would rather pick up a book with no meaning at all than the Bible!

I like to ask myself this question when I am listening music, "What is the message in this?" It helps me choose the right music to listen to. I might give my sister a hard time in what music she listens to because I think it has a lot of screeming in it, but it is the point of the song that matters.

Good choices I make always make me happy!=) My brother listens to a radio station every Saturday night at 9pm on the Christian radio station 101.1 KLRC or 99.1 (same thing). I don't want you to get the wrong idea but we do go to church on Sunday(because my parents teach 1st & 2nd grade children).We also listen to KLRC more than Saturday night. We go to the same homeschool group as Kade and Kole do. I need to go... so keep up the good work!=)

I like to find out what songs mean too. But sometimes I just like the way the song flows. With you.
