“C’mon Everybody! Let’s NOT do the Twist”

C’mon everybody! Let’s do the Twist! If you are like me, when you hear the beginning of this song, you run for the dance floor. I was listening to this song today and thinking about the lyrics. There aren’t many. “You’re Daddy’s sleeping, and your Momma ain’t around.” “we’re gonna twist and twist and twist till we tear the house down.” It made me start thinking about how people “twist” the Word of God. They twist and twist and twist How COVID has affected us

What’s Next?

Do you ever sit around and think about what’s next? I have a list in my head of everything that is next. I have things that I’m preparing for work, Things that need to be done for my family, things that I’m looking forward to with friends, and upcoming obligations. They are all swirling around inside of my head. Sometimes it helps to write them out, sometimes it helps to put them on a physical calendar…but they are still up How COVID has affected us

Warnings

How’s your security? In the last week, I’ve been locked out of my email account and had my debit card # stolen. It’s frustrating! There are safe walls in place for these things but sometimes things fall through the cracks.  My email was frustrating because everywhere I turned to get it back I hit a brick wall. I couldn’t figure out what happened or how to fix it. I wonder if this is how the people in the Bible felt How COVID has affected us

Distractions

Distractions. How many of you deal with distractions during the day? I have found that I am easily distracted. A radio playing, a conversation in the next room, the television in the background…all of these things can get me off task and distracted.  These may all sound like silly little things that happen throughout our day but distractions can be much bigger than this and can distract or derail us from the most important task that we’ve been given.  Romans How COVID has affected us

Burdens

Are you carrying around heavy burdens? Do you stress about things that are out of your control? We are told explicitly over and over in the bible not to do that…Do you know who struggles with obedience in that??? ME! I know better! I’m not sure why my little human brain can’t remember that..but I believe it is pride. I think that I can fix things. That I can carry burdens for others…in short I think I can do what How COVID has affected us
Broken Background

When Did You Get Broken?

When did you get broken? You may not be able to pinpoint a date, but over time we all lost that innocent confidence that comes with childhood. I recently decided to do a self-worth lesson for my 4th and 5th graders. I thought they could be at the brink of that brokenness. I had a lesson, an object lesson, a game, and a take-home gift to drive home the message. It was based on Psalm 139:13-14, “For you created my inmost being; How COVID has affected us

Happy Birthday Jesus

It’s almost my best friend’s birthday!!! I’m so excited to celebrate! Of course, I’m referring to my bestie Jesus! I like to look at Christmas as more of a birthday party for him so that I remember WHY we are celebrating. It can get a little too reindeer, green tree, shopping, lights, and movies for me.  Don’t get me wrong…I like all of those things too…I just don’t LOVE them. Not even close to how much I love Jesus!

God’s Timing

1 Peter 3: 8-9 says,  “ But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.”   When people tell me that they are worried about their kids I tell them, “God loves your kids more How COVID has affected us

Paid In Full

Have you ever been in over your head? Like completely and utterly overwhelmed? I know I have. Whether it be financially, with work projects, school, or home-life, I think we have all found ourselves in that situation a time or two.  And how have you felt when the pressure was taken off your plate? RELIEF! I know for myself, things like VBS can really add a lot of pressure. But when it starts and the kids show up, all of How COVID has affected us

The Fruit of the Spirit

It is the first week of our after-school programs! I am sooo excited! After a shortened year two years ago and last year, it is a relief to be meeting again. I would love your prayers for these kids. They have been through a lot. For some of the younger kids, they haven’t ever had a normal year.  This year we will be learning the Fruit of the Spirit. I am so glad that this is what we will be How COVID has affected us
