What is my blog about? It's about Torah family living. It's about letting Torah affect our daily lives, from mealtime to bedtime, homeschooling to farm chores.

TV free Days of Awe

And he said, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before YHVH. And, behold, YHVH passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and brake in pieces the rocks before YHVH; but YHVH was not in the wind: and after the wind an earthquake; but YHVH was not in the earthquake: And after the earthquake a fire; but YHVH was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice.

(1Ki 19:11-12)

During these Days of Awe that we have just begun, we want to hear YHVH's voice.  He has been speaking to me in so many ways, but what of my children?  Can they hear His still small voice?  Or is the TV too loud? 
We are going to have a tv free Days of Awe.  We don't have any regular channels, but I do normally let the kids watch religious children's programming and movies that I approve.  But we need quiet.  We need stillness.  We need to be able to hear YHVH's voice.  My husband begged to be allowed God's Learning Channel, so we'll occasionally watch some Bible teaching.
Would you like to join us?  Did you have the idea first?  Please post a comment if you are doing something similar for the Days of Awe.
May we grow closer to YHVH as we listen to Him.  Shalom and Blessings!

We are planning to sit down as a family and each chose one thing that we will personally fast from, whatever it is, be it reading books, riding bikes, chocolate, watching dvds (we too are tv free family, watching only select dvds). This is our first year to shamar the feasts and I want my girls to have a deep understanding of what it is about.
a tv free day sounds lovely! hope is allows the Ruach haKodesh to speak porfoundly and sweetly to you all!
