Two Choices on the Shelf…

portraits July 09 030

A good friend used to have a saying that has stuck with me over the years, “Two choices on the shelf, pleasing God and pleasing self.”  As we continue to try to get biblical principles across to our kids, specifically our deaf daughter who is 19  but was recently shown to have a much lower comprehension level due to not having much language at all in her life until she was 9 years old, we search for more concrete opportunities to teach these ideas.  This shelf is in our living room, where they will see it everyday, so maybe the saying will firmly lodge itself into their minds, now!  🙂



  1. I have used that “saying” in my sunday school classes when I taught 2nd and 3rd graders! We just made it on tag board and then I had them decorate the “frame”. I hoped they would put it up in their bedrooms or someplace where they would see it often. It is a simple yet profound statement, isn’t it?!
