Student Ministry Sunday

Student Ministry Sunday coincided with Greg’s birthday this year.  The girls are so busy at church that it actually gives Greg and I some to to sit and reflect on God’s word just the two of us.  We are so proud of all the girls are doing in Jesus’ name.

Lilah served as a greeter, welcoming the congregation into the service.  Grace is now on staff at church and has staff privileges for photographing services and events.  

I love this day.  I love listening to incredibly talented musicians play their hearts out in front of several hundred people.  I love listening to a message directed towards youth and families.  I love visiting and talking to people after church and really connecting with people I have come to love.  

I don’t take this church family for granted.  I have waited so long for it.  To see the girls surrounded by young adults and adults that are acting as true mentors, both spiritually and professionally, touches me in a way that is hard to describe.  I know that God places people in our lives for reasons.  He gives us both opportunity and choice.  When the opportunities come and the choice is a resounding YES, then blessings pour down.  

This summer has some exciting things in store for the girls.  They are both volunteering at VBS, Grace as staff photographer and Lilah as a 1st/2nd grade counselor.  Grace will head to her mission trip which she mostly funded through photography sales.  Both girls will attend a student leadership retreat.  They have fully embraced the opportunities available to them and this is why I love having teens.  You get to see them grow up right before your eyes.

Don't You Just Stay Home All Day?

It’s funny because last night at youth group some of the kids friends were discussing homeschooling and really truly felt that we stay home...
