True Contentment

“I know how to make do with little, and I know how to make do with a lot. In any and all circumstances I have learned the secret of being content—whether well fed or hungry, whether in abundance or in need. I am able to do all things through him who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:12-13 Cambridge Dictionary tells us that contentment is happiness and satisfaction, often because you have everything you need. I don’t know about you, but there aren’t…

Helping Others Around The World

Jesus came near and said to them, “All authority has been given to me in heaven and on earth. Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe everything I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:18-20 Have you ever read these verses and wished that you could “go…

Have you heard the good news?

Every day they devoted themselves to meeting together in the temple, and broke bread from house to house. They ate their food with joyful and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. Every day the Lord added to their number those who were being saved. Acts 2:46-47 I scream. You scream. We all scream for Life Team! Have you heard the good news? Life Teams start meeting again this Sunday, September 13th, and childcare is…

The Joys Of Motherhood

OK dads, you get the week off. This one is for moms. Being a mom is one of the best jobs in the world. There is so much joy that can come from raising kids. There is nothing like a messy hug and kiss from sticky preschoolers after a snack or meal. Bedtime prayers with a toddler fills the heart to keep us going for another day. Watching milestones being met brings out the inner cheerleader in all of us.…

Kindness

This week’s Bible lesson is about Joseph and his brothers. It teaches how Joseph loved his brothers and was kind to them, even after all they had done to him. Ephesians 4:32 tells us, “And be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving one another, just as God also forgave you in Christ.” Kindness is not always easy to teach to preschoolers. They know what they want and they want it their way.  They don’t want to always share, take…

Don’t Give Up

Eighteen years. Eighteen long years, only they weren’t really that long. I just dropped my baby at college last weekend. How did that happen? Where did the time go? There sure were some really long days in there for his childhood to be over so fast. Wedding? Did someone say wedding? Yes, that’s right. If sending my baby off to college wasn’t hard enough, we are planning the wedding of my daughter. I never thought that my kids would grow…

Introduce Them To The Bible

One of my favorite things to do at home is read my Bible. One of my favorite things to do at church is teach my preschoolers to read the Bible. I love to hear the excitement in their voices when they tell me that the Bible is God’s special book. I know it’s easy to think they are too young to understand, but now is the perfect time for your preschooler to fall in love with God’s word. It’s never…

We Are In This Together

I miss my little friends! I miss the high fives, the hugs and the conversations. I miss the laughter and I even miss the tears. Most of all, I miss teaching them about Jesus. I am looking forward to the day when I am back with my friends every Sunday. I am thankful for my little friends. I am thankful for their families. I am thankful for their smiles, laughter and even their meltdowns. I am thankful that I can…

God Loves You

Do you ever feel overwhelmed? Do your days not always go as planned? I don’t know about you, but some days I feel like I am on a hamster wheel. My to-do list doesn’t get done. I say things that I shouldn’t say. Then before you know it, I’m questioning everything about myself. Am I a good parent? Am I a good wife? Did I spend enough time with God today? Where did my time go?  Why is there so much…

Draw Near To God

Change. Change. Change. So much is continuing to change every day and with that comes questions. When will church fully open? Will school open? Should I send my child to school? Is it safe to go here or there? Where did I put my mask? Each day can bring even more questions. What are we suppose to do? Proverbs 3:5-6 says, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own understanding; in all your…

Live Each Day God’s Way

If you have not had a chance to listen to the sermon from July 12th, run, don’t walk, to listen. If you are like me, then you might even want to listen to it a second time. What fantastic encouragement as we strive to live each day God’s way. Pastor Marc shared a great message that reminds us of our need to pray, love others, serve others and depend on God daily. As the faith builders in your home, these…

Rejoice In The Lord Always

It’s Summer time!! That means it’s all fun and games, right? No restrictions, the sky is the limit! As good as that may sound, it may not always be the best plan. I have learned that kids, especially preschoolers, love structure. It would be easy to let things go during these summer months, but it would also be a really good time to dig those heels in and be even more intentional in your parenting. You have done such a great…
