How to Bless Your Child
I threw a great thirteenth birthday for my daughter, if I may say so myself! I wrote a column about it a couple of months ago, and it was republished at Heart of the Matter here.

Basically, I invited twelve women who are important in Rebecca's life to come and say a blessing over her. And we had chocolate. Lots of it. And facials. And manicures. It was a riot! Her friends came, too, and got to hear the wonderful words from people who loved her.

I actually didn't say anything; I saved my words for her baptism a few weeks later. I do think it's so important to take these opportunities to bless our kids when we have the chance. It seems odd in today's culture, but it was very much a part of Old Testament culture, and it has deep meaning and spiritual significance.

Anyway, read the column and see what you think!

What a great idea! It will be something that she will remember and cherish forever. I so wish I had a daughter for things like that. I am still trying to keep the bug collection from coming into the house. Boys gotta love them or (never mind) :)
