Discussion Sunday Week I

In chapter I, T. D. Jakes talks about the rhythm of your instinct. He compares it to the genetic make-up and cells in your body. How they instinctively coincide with one another, which cause them to function the way they do. What are your thoughts on that? How can you tap into you instinctive rhythm in pursuit of your destiny?

Chapter II Basic Instinct
On page 15 of chapter 2, Jakes stated, “our creator designed everything to have a purpose. Do you know your purpose and if so, are you diligently working to fulfill that aspiration?

Chapter III Instinct in Action
The author did not want us to get confused with thinking that instinct was an uncontrollable urge, self-indulgent desire, arbitrary impulse or compulsion. (See page 24) How do you know when you acting on instinct and what should it be based on?

Chapter IV The Elephant Ova Dere
What is the difference between intellect and instinct? How can the two work divinely together?

Chapter V Instinct or Extinct
Another word for extinct is “asleep”. I’ve heard the slang expression used, ” you sleep on that”, meaning your not informed about something or your missing out on something that would be beneficial to you. Are you get the exposure you need to explore your God given passion?

These question are posed to get your creative thinking peeking and not meant to be invasive. Please make you response on this page so everyone can benefit from your input.

COME OUT SWINGING!

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Gut Feeling.”I had my moment of self-evaluation and reflection!  In that moment I began to say, it has to be more to my life than what’s going on in my life right now and surely this is not my final destination. I prayed to God and asked him to give me an desire to read more and He not only did that, but he gave me the passion to promote reading through starting a webpage and book club. I’m sharing this journey of discovering who I am through my given instinct with in.

Meet the Kids Who Don’t Want Toys For Christmas

Wow this is confirmation to what God told me to do and it starts with our children. I just recently start the blog purpose reader’s and the blog is to promote reading more to purposely change the home environment and set an atmosphere of creative and innovative thinker.

It had been only two days since Ruth Soukup had re-organized her daughters’ room, and there were still a few toys on the floor that her kids, then three and six years old, refused to pick up. “I would say to the girls, ‘If you can’t take care of your stuff, I’m going to have to take it all away,’” Soukup recalls. It was an empty threat, until that afternoon when Soukup realized she genuinely “wanted it all gone.”

Very calmly, Soukup started taking everything except for furniture out of their room and amassing their toys into a gigantic pile.

She took away all their dress-up clothes, baby dolls, Polly Pockets and stuffed animals, all of their Barbies, building blocks and toy trains, right down to the furniture from their dollhouse and play food from their kitchen. She even took the pink Pottery Barn Kids comforter from their bed.

~Discussion Sunday~

Discussion Sunday is about going over the book of the month in variations. Purpose Readers will blog about the  first 5 chapters of the book for that first Sunday of every month (pending how it falls), then every Sunday the chapters for discussion will be posted prior to that following Sunday.

This opens the floor for people to share their insight about that particular book and collaborate view points to broaden each other creative thinking. When ten movie critics watch the same movie, they all have their interpretation of what the movie was about. They give you a complete summary and their rankings. Some might have the same views, but each will have their own voice.

Discussion Sunday can be innovative and fun by blogging, sharing and evolving!

TIS THE SEASON!

This is truly the most wonderful time of the year! Throughout the year, you may have had some hard and difficult times, were the ground under your feet felt like it was going to collapse. Enduring all the seasons of storms that life has confronted you with you manage to smile when you see a child’s face light up when you pull out the Christmas tree. How about when the first big snow fall and the children are outside making snow angels, or a kid knock on your door with his shovel, because he is trying to raise money to buy Christmas gifts.  

If you are having a hard time getting in the Christmas spirit I recommend that you read story of “The Birth of Jesus Christ ” first!  Knowing the meaning and comprehending the reason for the season take you to a place Of gratitude and  humility. Christ is God’s gift to the world and in him is the fullness of joy.  In the bible ,King David  prayer to God was, “uphold me with your free spirit and whatever you do don’t take your joy from me” .  David also says in the book of Psalms that , “the joy of the Lord is my strength”! You can get excited  and you can even be happy, but only joy will take you through!

Raising Sharp Readers by Colby and Alaina Sharp

Nerdy Book Club

7 years ago, we were elated and terrified to welcome the first of our three little readers into the world.  As parents, we don’t do a lot of things right – Breslin’s gone to school with his pants on backwards enough times to verify that.  But, we have managed to turn out three little people who love reading fiercely.  Here are some of our thoughts on how we have helped to foster and nourish that love in our home.

1. Have books everywhere.

Our oldest isn’t one to go the bookshelf and pick up a book. He’s not the type of kid that you tell to go and read a book. What we’ve found is that if we have books laying around all over the place (tables, floor, car, bed, etc) he reads a ton. Sometimes he’ll find a book laying on the coffee table and read it cover to cover…
