TEACHING MY TEENAGER THE VALUE OF DOING HIS CHORES

I have three children and I remember when there was always lots of people in here. It would be the kids, their friends and always some sort of activity. NOW my little house is getting empty. My oldest son Elijah moved out, My daughter Lyric is never home. Since Lyric has her own car, friends and a busy life outside the house, she has less responsibilities inside the house. Oh yeah, and she leaves for college in a few months. Then there is my youngest son Patrick. He is now 15 years old and he does the biggest portion of the chores.

That is where our youngest child Patrick comes into play. He is the "Primary" child at home now. So he has lots of cores that he has to do. Well, At least that is what he says. I think he has his fair share (Smile) He is extremely lucky to do these simple chores. My life was different growing up so I think we have given him a fair amount. I really miss him as a baby but realize that he is now a young man.

ME AND MY BABY BOY 15 YEARS AGO

I remember growing up in Chicago. I lived with my two sisters in a house with lots of chores, lots of rules and little discussions about it. If my father said do something, you simply did it with no questions asked. Fast forward to 2015 in the Campbell home...Things are a lot different in our home. Chores are done here also but in moderation. Now I know that many of my readers will disagree with me here and that's OK. Each home is run differently.

I would love to hear about how you divide the chores in your home. Leave me a message in the comment section.

There are so many different ways that families do chores.  I pray that you will read "Our Story" and then apply whatever works for you.

  In our home, Patrick is in charge of all of the garbage, mopping the floors and vacuuming. Not a hard list of things to do but geared solely on teaching my baby boy responsibility and the importance of structure. 






Talk with your kids and explain the value of doing chores

So proud of him and He is a great kid. He is on the honor roll at Douglas Anderson School of the Arts here in Florida. Did I mention that he loves his parents (Smile)

But his biggest love is playing his beloved Trumpet. I am happy that he uses his time wisely, you know, There are a lot of other things he could be doing.  
I am grateful that my husband and I have a REAL relationship with God. That relationship between us has guided us in parenting.  THANK YOU FATHER.

God has blessed me with some WONDERFUL people in my life!

MY CRAZY LIFE BLOG
BY LASHON CAMPBELL




God has blessed me with WONDERFUL friends 

Have you ever stopped for a moment and said a thank you to God for all the wonderful people that he has placed in your life. I truly believe that you should. At least remind yourself of these blessings as often as possible. God has really blessed me to know some WONDERFUL people in my life. 









One of the GREATEST joys I have encountered in my military travels has been relationships that I have developed with friends. Most of the people who are in my life are military wives and they are all awesome in their own way. They have each touched my life and made it better in such a fantastic way. I really do mean that. I have such great memories of them.









Friendships of any kind are a gift from God. Having a friend that understands you and loves you makes your heart feel so full and their love is simply incomparable in my mind. I spend a lot of time sharing with my friends and letting them know just how important they ar…

PRAYER FOR FINANCIAL BREAKTHROUGH

Most of us are struggling to pay the mortgage... Most of us are struggling to pay our children's tuition. We work hard and yet we are constantly coming up short.....
I submit to you today that all of that can change through the power of prayer and a positive attitude. I personally believe that prayer has changed the circumstances in our home.




I believe that communication, prayer and honesty within a marriage, is key to maintaining financial freedom.












Secrets tend to destroy a relationship.








So sit down today with your spouse and openly discuss all financial matters in your house. When you pray talk to God about your finances.




Here is a prayer that we use in our home.


Hope this can help to strengthen your family and enable you to be at peace concerning your finances:




PRAYER FOR FINANCIAL BREAKTHROUGH




Father God, you are the source of all my sustenance. So I come to you today in prayer and I pray for you toHEAR ME AND GUIDE MEin your infinite wisdom.

My spirit is full, but my wallet is always…

Happy First birthday to the BEST GRANDSON ever....

I NEVER KNEW HOW MUCH LOVE MY HEART WOULD HOLD, UNTIL I BECAME A GRANDMOTHER FOR THE FIRST TIME....

Our family has been BLESSED with a NEW grandson. His name is Cameron and he is the most beautiful baby in the world. He has a smile that melts your heart and a laugh that is contagious. The first time I laid eyes on him, I loved him. I never knew how much love my heart could hold before our grandson was born. 













We are about to celebrate his first birthday and we are excited about the AMAZING future for the newest member of the Campbell family. Look at that face....
I hold him in my arms and I remember when my own kids were small and full of wonder. Grand kids are such a blessing and I plan on spending as much time as I can spoiling this beautiful baby (Smile)






THIS WAS A PERFECT MOMENT IN TIME






We love our kids and we hold them close to our hearts, but these grand kids tug a little harder and they make you forget how to say no (Smile) Where is my brain today? Is that a good thing or am I just …

Ways to get some EXTRA CASH in your pockets

WE LOVE EXTRA CASH 


I always say that I am going to have a garage sale. OK so maybe you have heard that once before. (I am a bit of a procrastinator) When I look around the garage there are tons of stuff that I could probably sale. Recently, the kids and I donated quite a bit of that stuff to the Salvation Army. I felt really good about that.



CHARITY
CHARITY
CHARITY



The Salvation Army is one of my favorite charities and I figured the stuff was just sitting around gathering dust. Giving back makes me feel better and I am teaching my kids how to save, volunteer, give back and honor God all at the same time. The reality is, we all can use some EXTRA CASH and the stuff laying around your house could be priceless to someone. 








How much extra stuff do you have lying around the house that you never use? You could arrange the items and sell them at a Garage sale.







MAKE SOME MONEY

Before you know it, you can turn that extra stuff into cash. So today as you are going about your day, why no…

A PROUD wife reflects on the MASTER CHIEF PINNING CEREMONY OF her husband CMC PATRICK CAMPBELL

Originally posted May 4, 2011



Congratulations to my husband Patrick Campbell who has just been promoted to E-9 a Master Chief Petty Officer in the United States Navy.

 No words can express the love and admiration that I feel for him right now. I remember back in 2005 when I pinned his Chief anchors on, It was a special time for us as a family..….. When he was promoted to Senior Chief I cried as I thought of his career and his spiritual victories. Now in 2011, my heart beats a different beat as I will soon see my husband receive his new anchors for Master Chief.


                                  THE BEAUTIFUL CAKE


Over the years I have watched him slowly preparing for this day. The long hours and dedication has lead him into this promotion. I know that becoming a Master chief is only the beginning and this promotion will only bring out a new fire that I have seen so many times in the past…He craves it and silently he enjoys the challenge.

THAT'S MY HUSBAND THE NEW MASTER CHIEF
