Tearing Down Idols

During the Pre-Teen devo this past month we discussed idols we can place in our hearts. God was constantly warning the Israelites about the idols they chased after with the foreign people of the land. The people started by creating the golden calf after God delivered them from Egypt. Over time they continued returning to…

Faith Like a Child

Jesus said, “Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.” – Matthew 18:3 With having five kids in our family there is never a shortage of funny statements going around. One morning when Maria was about 6 years old, she came to us…

Clothed with Christ

This past Sunday in our 6th grade class we discussed a very important topic that Paul was addressing with the Galatian church. Many of the Jews at the time were having a hard time accepting salvation through faith in Jesus Christ and were trying to add requirements from the Law of Moses. Paul’s narrative was…

Flirting

We have just completed another successful season of Leadership Training for Christ.  This is such a         beneficial program not only for spiritual growth, but also for Bible knowledge.  It makes my heart beam to see our kids sit down after nailing a quality speech or acing their song in song leading. I love to see…

Pretty Easter Eggs

When I was a kid, I loved Easter. I loved decorating eggs. I loved hiding eggs. I loved hunting eggs. I loved eating the eggs. When I was a kid there were no Easter egg decorating kits like you can buy at Walmart. When I was a kid, you had a six pack of food…

Finish the Job!

If you are around me much at all, you know I like to tinker (tear up is probably more accurate) with my vehicles. Last week I had another opportunity. The temperature gauge on “The Beast” began to go haywire indicating the engine was running hot. “The Beast” is what my girls call my 200,000 mile,1999…

Put Some Air In It

My toolbox – In my toolbox I have this nice little tire plugging kit. It is one of the most important tools I have. In the kit is a tool that pulls the nail out of the tire. It has a tool to clean the edges. And it has a tool to insert the new…
