Tucking Our Children In At Bedtime…

Parents can love bedtime or dread it.  After long days with our children underfoot, we can long for the time when things get quiet and we can hear ourselves think. Tuck in time is the process at the end of the day where we bathe, love and get our children into their beds for the night.  This was always one of my favorite times of the day with my children.  For one of my children, I had a special side…

Give Thanks In All Circumstances

I have been trying to develop a heart of gratitude in recent years.  I started with a Thanksgiving Journal.  It was a small notebook that I recorded three things I was thankful for each day for a year.  One year, I kept a running list on my computer of gifts from God that I was thankful for.  Another year, I did a study called One Thousand Gifts and kept a journal of things I was thankful for.  1,000 grew to…

Love One Another

“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” John 13:34-35 God’s word tells us to love one another.  That seems fairly simple.  But love is more than a warm fuzzy feeling you have towards someone.  What does love really look like?  Love does.  Love is a choice.  Love is an action word.  Love…

When Things Are Hard

Life is hard.  Life is complicated.  Do you ever find yourself or your family complaining about how things are?  “It’s too hot!  Online learning is too hard.  I hate wearing a mask!  I don’t want to be my child’s teacher!  I hate that everything is being cancelled!  It’s not fair!  Why can’t the stores just be open for usual business hours? I hate drive-bys! COVID is so dumb! All you kids do is fight with one another! Why are there…

Summer Bucket List

You made it!  Summer is FINALLY upon us. When we started this season of COVID-19, I encouraged you to be intentional with the extra time and your daily schedules with your children.  We are now into the summer months and I want to continue to encourage you to enjoy the days with your children.  Make some plans rather than just wonder where all the days went.  Maybe you and your family can sit down and brainstorm together things that would…

Bolt VBS Day 4

What a great week with Bolt VBS! VBS was definitely different this year. Going virtual was a first for us and for you too but you did an amazing job. We are so proud of all of you. We’ve enjoyed being able to see all of you on social media having fun and digging into God’s Word as a family and we’ve loved getting to see everybody during the daily drive-by’s. Thank you all so much for the donations of…

Bolt VBS Day 3

I don’t know about you, but to me, it seems that this week has been flying by! I can’t believe that today is already the last day of BOLT Virtual VBS. Last night, I enjoyed learning how important it is to stay focused on Jesus, especially when times are rough. The worship song each night is awesome too! Tonight is the last chance to drive-by the church at 1701 Walker Lane and drop off your coins or food times benefiting…

Bolt VBS Day 2

Wow! Wasn’t yesterday’s BOLT Virtual VBS so fun? I hope that you enjoyed your time together as a family. It was great to talk about how we can let the Bible have a greater impact in our lives and the games were so fun! Be sure to bring your origami craft for us to see, at the drive-by today, at the church from 4-7 pm for a special treat. I can’t wait to see in today’s video if the boys…

Happy Father’s Day!

Happy Father’s Day! Today we celebrate the Fathers in our lives.  This is a chance to give the honor due them.  Ephesians 6:23 says, “Honor your Father and Mother, which is the first commandment with a promise, that it may be well with you, and you may live long on the earth.”  Webster’s states that honor is “high respect or great esteem”.  Fathers are called to lovingly lead their families, as they follow Jesus.  Fathers are to be the head…
