Summertime Is Just Around The Corner

Here we are in May already. Time for another school year to wind down and end. I clearly remember those last weeks of school when my kids were younger. It doesn’t matter if you have a preschooler, elementary student, middle schooler, or high schooler, this can be a crazy and busy time of year. There are class parties, STAAR testing, award ceremonies, band concerts, graduations and there are still lunches to be made and clothes to be washed. There are…

Finish Strong

My friends, are you counting down the days that are left of school?  Do you have a paper chain showing how many more crazy mornings are left until summer?  Do you dream of mornings with no rushing around looking for forms that are due?  Have the lunches you pack come down to chips and fruit snacks?  Do you long for mornings where the pace is slower, and the words are kinder?  You are almost there!  Let me take a minute…

Praise For Moms

Mother’s Day is Sunday and what a blessing it is to remember and honor our mothers.  Some of us are mothers, some of us still have our mothers, some of us have mother figures we look up to.  We see you.  You are making tiny disciples in your home and it can be overwhelming at times!  Here is a tiny glimpse of what we see you doing and being as you parent your children.  We love you.  We give thanks…

Happy Mother’s Day

Happy Mother’s Day! Being a mom is one of the hardest jobs. Being a mom is also one of the most rewarding jobs. Proverbs 31:28-29 says, “Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also praises her: ‘Many women have done noble deeds, but you surpass them all!’” Wouldn’t it be nice if our little ones truly called us blessed instead of just calling our name 100 times a day? How good would it feel if our husbands…

It Can All Start With The Ten Commandments

This week’s online Sunday School lesson is on the Ten Commandments.  God gave us these ten rules to keep us safe and help us to live lives that point to God and His holiness.  Are they easy?  Not always.  They are not easy for us grownups or our children.  Being familiar with the things that matter to God is important for us parents, so we can better live them out and model them to our children.  Living God’s way and…

Show Your Appreciation

Can you believe that another school year is coming to an end? It seems like this year has gone by so fast. It is the time of the year when everyone shows appreciation for their children’s teachers, also known as Teacher Appreciation Week. School teachers have such an important job educating our children. They are shaping our future. Whether you are homeschooling or sending your child to school in person, one thing this past year has taught us, is the…

Don’t Miss Out – Time Is Passing!

Time passes quickly when you are having a good time. We have been experiencing good times for sure since we are able to meet in person and on campus again for worship and children’s activities.  It is so very good to see your faces and to be able to teach our littles about the love of God!  We have also been signing up our children for Mini Camp and Preteen Camp.  We really need to get everyone signed up as…

Responding To The Storms In Life

April showers bring May flowers, or so the saying goes. There is also, rain, rain go away, come again another day.  Sometimes the rain is downright annoying. It messes up outdoor plans. It makes our yards muddy. It ruins the look of a freshly washed car. I do know that a good rain always makes my yard greener. I know that a rainbow after a storm always takes my breath away. I know that seeing the sun after several days of…

Giving Thanks For Our Food

Parents, as we make disciples in our homes and model what living a life that blesses God looks like, we should be giving thanks for our food.  Many people do not gather around the traditional family dinner table anymore.  Whether you do, or you do not, I want to encourage you to say a prayer of thanksgiving with your children before they eat.  Train them up in the Lord.  Train them to live a life of thanksgiving unto God.  Jesus…

As You Go

The Bible lesson for our preschoolers this week is about the Great Commission. Matthew 28:16-20 says, “The eleven disciples traveled to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had directed them. When they saw him, they worshiped, but some doubted. 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…

See God At Work In All Things

Springtime in Texas can be wonderful and can be difficult.  Trees are budding out.  Leaves are appearing again on trees.  Flowers are blooming.  Families start grilling outdoors again.  Sunrises and sunsets are amazing!  Small pieces of fruit begin to grow on trees.  Grass turns green again.  Lawnmowers can be heard in neighborhoods.  Animals give birth to sweet babies. Vegetable gardens are planted. All of this is a result of a very crafty Creator who happens to be the One True…

Live Out His Word

There are about 170,000 words in current use in the English language. We use at least 7,000 words a day. That is a lot of words. That tells me that our words matter. I also believe that the tone of our words matters too. What about the saying that “actions speak louder than words”? While those exact words are not found in the Bible, what we read in James 1:22 comes close. It says, “But be doers of the word and…
