Victory Candles

I recently read what one mother did to celebrate the little accomplishments in her family's lives.  In the middle of her kitchen table sits a candle.  They call it their Victory Candle.   At dinner, the candle is lit when a member of the family has had a "victory" of some kind during the day.  Then during the meal, that person shares with the family the details of their achievement.

In our household I can see a lot of ways we can use this:

For the kids:
  • Did chores without being told (I might actually incorporate a "Victory Dance" with that one, too!);
  • Did well in school/had a good score on a test or school work;
  • Memorized Bible verses for AWANA;
  • Was grateful about something...did not complain;
  • Sports victories/played well or with sportsman-like conduct;
  • Etc., etc., etc.
Don't forget to include your victories.  It's good for the kiddos of the household to celebrate your good news, too!

Write a comment to let me know what you think.  How could you use a Victory Candle in your home?
Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in Heaven. ~  Matthew 5:16
