Daily to do list free printable

My Daily To-Do List is pretty basic, but hopefully it will work for you too. There is an area to make a list of things to accomplish, household goals, appointment, meals for the day, and even a space to record exercise (oh – I crack myself up!) and water intake.

Each page in the document is identical so you can print them off, cut the page in half, and have two lists. If you print them front to back, you’ll have four to-do lists and save a little paper.

Character of God ~ Seeds Family Worship Song Download

Of all the music loaded onto my ipod, the albums from Seeds Family Worship are the ones that we turn to the most often.  I love that the music fills our house and hearts with lyrics straight from God’s word.

Character of God Cover

When their new album The Character of God was released last month, a friend was immediately on the phone with me and we had it ordered and patiently waited for it to arrive. The kids were THRILLED and may not have waited as patiently for it, asking every.single.day when it would be here. It arrived and just as the albums before, it is already well loved and learned.

There are seven albums now from Seeds – and that means over 80 verses that our family has learned through music! We firmly believe it is important to have the Word of God planted firmly in our hearts and love that this ministry helps us!

Want to plant a seed of Scripture into your child’s heart today? Seeds is offering a free song to my readers {God is Unchanging, Hebrews 13:8} from the new album – in exchange for a tweet. Quick and simple and all you have to do is click below to grab it.

“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. “

Hebrews 13:8 ESV

 

Powered by Tweet to Download

Once you click the ‘tweet’ button above, the download button will appear. Click on that button to receive the download link.

You can find the songs from the album The Character of God on these other blogs. If you are looking for great Christmas presents, be sure to visit Seeds Family Worship and use coupon code HOMESCHOOLCREATIONS to take 20% off the individual cds – and remember that each cd comes with TWO so you can share with a friend!

Note: Free song download offer is good through November 30, 2012.
