Five Minute Friday
This week’s prompt: listen.

My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. 
John 10:27 NLT

Five children brings a lot of discussion on listening to what Brad and I say and then obeying us. Often I'm struck with the  question, "Am I listening to and obeying God?" I pray for my children to follow God, to obey him. I pray they will obey us. I need to pray the same for myself. I want to listen to God's voice. I want to know his voice. The way my children stop whey I call their names or give them "the look," I want to have my heart so tuned to God that I stop and listen when he calls my name.

Andi and Brad have been married since 2002. They have five squishers who keep them on their toes. She is a second generation home educator. In her spare time Andi creates and sells handmade goodies in her shop, Andi Gould Designs.
