Put Love Into Action

I have really enjoyed the sermon series that Pastor Marc has been walking us through. He has been focusing on Matthew 7:12 for a few weeks now. It tells us, “Therefore, whatever you want others to do for you, do also the same for them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.” This is such a great lesson for us as adults to learn and put into action each day. It is also a very important lesson for us…

Shine His Light To Others

“In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven.” Matthew 5:16 I love Fall. I love the cooler weather. I love to watch football. I love the Fall decorations and I love pumpkins. I have so many pumpkins around my house right now. When my kids were little we would carve and decorate pumpkins. They would take turns spooning out the inside so…

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…
