Abiding In Him

I love this picture of a momma bird hiding and protecting her little ones.  They have run to her and therefore are sheltered from harm.  During this pandemic, it seemed completely appropriate to spend a month in Bible Study over Psalm 91.  For those who choose to live under the protection of the Most High, huge blessings are provided.  They then can abide in the shadow of God Almighty.  He becomes their refuge and fortress against all that wages war…

It Is Ok To Experience Disappointment

Dealing with disappointment when everything gets canceled … During this global pandemic, one common thread that affects most people is that things or events get canceled.  Sometimes, these events are monumental.  Cancellations of birthday parties, retirement parties, graduations, funerals and even weddings seem commonplace today.  With each of these situations, disappointment is lurking around the corner.  Many of these things can and will be rescheduled, when it is deemed safe.  Some things will pass by, gone forever.  These situations leave…

Mother’s Day Thoughts

I want to wish all of the mothers a Happy Mother’s Day! It takes a lot of things to make up a mother. I want to recognize a few of them on this Mother’s Day. Maid – You may feel that this is your main job: never-ending dishes, laundry, housework, etc. Official – You establish and enforce the house rules, keep the peace and give timeouts when necessary. Teacher – This is truer now than ever before: Schoolwork as well…

Quiet Times for Kids

As a church, we encourage our church members to have daily quiet times. A specific time set aside to meet privately with God. We encourage children, who have become believers, to have daily quiet times too. Consistent time with the Father and in His word is how we come to truly know God. Above all, model this spiritual discipline. Let your children catch you starting each day in prayer and Bible reading. For our parents, who are the foundational faith…

The Parents We Are Meant To Be

How are you doing my friends? How is homeschooling going? How is being intentional going? How is making disciples in your home going? Things can seem overwhelming as parents right now. Thankfully, God is in control and God is with you each step of the way. You may feel that you need to be a spiritual giant to disciple your children at home but nothing is further from the truth. God Gives Parents Their Job Description Listen, Israel: The LORD…

Think Before You Speak

I want you to remember that old saying, “Think before you speak.” Once words leave our mouths, they can’t be taken back. Hello, Quarantine Day number 10,311 or something like that. How are you doing working from home, schooling children at home, raising kids at home, doing marriage at home, making disciples at home, cooking nonstop at home and doing dishes and laundry that never end at home? Do you get the picture? Remember when your house used to feel…

Happy Resurrection Sunday

My prayer for you is that this Easter will be more special and meaningful than in years past because so much of what has been added has been stripped away. Many families are concerned that Easter is going to be different this year. That is certainly true. It has been mentioned that we won’t all have new clothes to wear, our family gatherings and meals won’t look the same, our special Easter services won’t take place in the church building…

Reflect on the Character of God

I miss you and your children so much. I am praying for you as you navigate these days that seem to change so quickly. I want to encourage you, that as you talk with your children during these days, when the world seems to be so messed up, it can actually be an opportunity to teach your children some theology. It can be a time to reflect on the character of God. We are passing a belief system down to…

Children’s worship

Hello my friends. I am missing each and every one of you. Please know that I am praying for you as you walk through these uncertain days. We can find peace knowing that we serve, love and worship a Mighty God who is in control. Many of you have been thrown into being quarantined as a family, becoming a homeschool teacher (to multiple grades), and now being responsible for discipling your children spiritually. I want you to know that I…
