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…

Jesus Loves The Little Children

I am missing my little friends so much. That is easy for me to say since I am not there with them every day. I know some days it is hard to see all of the wonderful qualities that God gave preschoolers. This week I wanted to remind you of a few things that make your preschoolers my favorite friends! Fun – They bring so much laughter to the classroom. Whether they are jumping up and down, shaking their bottoms…

Seasons Change

“There is an occasion for everything, and a time for every activity under heaven:” Ecclesiastes 3:1 Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter: Four different seasons in a year, yet each one brings something different. The same thing happens in our lives too. It seems that the days turn into weeks, the weeks turn into months and then all of a sudden another year has gone by. Have you heard the saying that the days are long, but the years are short?…

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…

Summer Event Changes

Usually, during this time of year, we gear up for the summer.

Summer Activities Canceled As of now, all our normal summer activities are canceled. This includes: Crazy Summer Nights Vacation Bible…

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…

Raise Children Who Follow God

Our goal as mothers is to raise children who follow God. Happy Mother’s Day! What a wonderful day to celebrate the gift of motherhood. You can just kick your heels up and relax all day, right? Being a mom is the best job in the world until a day comes when it just isn’t. Some days it is downright hard. It can be overwhelming when we have to figure it all out on our own. Fortunately, since our children are…

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…
