A Woman's Heart

Speedy dinner from Donna Hay. This is so easy and fast. No waiting time for the marinade, just brush and put on hot grill. Chicken takes about 5-6 minutes to cook, moist and tender. I like the charred look of this dish and the flavor is awesome. This is an easy to remember recipe, make it once and you probably remember how. This is great for BBQ party too.  A must try for busy cooks!

Young Mothers Bible Study Group

The church has a bible study group for young mothers to study God's Word together.  It is also a time for these busy young mothers to take a break from their children to fellowship and share parenting tips in the group.
They meet fortnightly on Thursday mornings. While they're studying, their young children will be well looked  after by volunteers. There are about 5-6 children there ranging from 2 to 6 years old.
This morning, I was there looking after the kids. We did story telling, songs and coloring. They also watch a video and play among themselves.
It is indeed very heartwarming to see these young mothers wanting to make time for devotions. Parenting young children, tending their marriages and taking care of homes and, for some, juggling careers outside the homes, seem to completely fill their days. I know, I have been there. It was tough looking after 3 young children on my own without close support. There was no time for God, not even for 10 minutes. It is important to spend time with God, even for a short 10 minutes, give Him your first priority. Having a time for devotional study is a priority that can help everything falls more smoothly into place and it provides spiritual comfort and relief when one needs it.
