COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Lamona Griffin has found that when it comes to teaching her daughters life lessons, it's the little things that count the most, "We always incorporate life lessons into what we're doing so it just happens that whenever a moment comes up we use it to teach bigger ideas with it."

Whether they are using math while preparing a meal.

"When we cook we multiply, divide, subtract and add fractions," said fifth grade student at Waddell Elementary Serenity Griffin

Her sister, Danielle Griffin, who is a fourth grader at Waddell, added, "When we have to measure stuff and put it into the batter we do fractions."

Or the family is using time together to find a deeper meaning in what they are doing.

Lamona told News Leader Nine, "Sometimes when we cook recipes and they don't turn out the way we want them to we will talk about how it applies to life. Sometimes we can do the right things and what we intend doesn't turn out the way we want it to. We have to make adjustments. Sometimes they are immediate to make the recipe exactly what we want or we make plans for the next time."

Griffin says she has really seen the lessons starting to take hold in the girls' lives, "They both make positive decisions. When things happen they apply a bigger picture to it and try to make the right decision from it."
