Choosing Life For the Next Generation

Sunday, our pastor spoke about King Josiah. You remember him? He was the boy king who was crowned at age 8. Josiah’s father was an evil man who led Israel into idol worship and more. For some reason, Josiah decided to follow God and do what He said even though he knew barely anything about […]

VBS: Sky {& a fun airplane craft}

If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you probably saw my VBS and Performing Arts Camp updates last week.

Stuff To Read {And Love}

Even in the midst of our Summer o’Fun (you know it makes me laugh every time I write that), I’ve been purposeful in keeping our days slow and simple. One day last week all the kids did was do puzzles (like every single puzzle we own) and then they dressed up like Laura and Almanzo […]
