VBS Memories

Actually, this isn’t a post about my childhood memories of VBS. Summer time is here, the temperatures are rising, and that means Vacation Bible School is right around the bend. I wanted to share my favorite method for teaching children Bible verses, which is an important part of the lesson. I discovered this many years […]

In the Days of Noah

One of our favorite places to visit is the Ark Encounter in Williamstown, Kentucky. There are so many interesting exhibits that it really requires a couple of days to take it all in, but it’s time well spent.  And your kids will love it! Below is a montage of photos from our last visit. For […]

The Way He Should Go

My family moved when I was seven. Like a typical seven-year-old girl, I didn’t get bogged down in the moving details. I simply walked into a new world of expansive spaces, country roads, long-needle pine woods, and acres of mango trees. Zorro arrived in this world shortly after I did. That meant the storing of […]

Moth and Lamb

One of the great battles of the Christian life is to get our eyes off ourselves. How long do you and I go without thinking about our personal interests, ambitions, feelings, desires, likes, dislikes, loves, hates, work, hobbies, food preferences, clothing, vacations, relaxation and a hundred other things concerning ourselves? Probably not very long, which […]

Testaments

The process always began on Saturday evening. If something needed to be ironed, out came the old wood-legged ironing board my mother received as a wedding present. The surface was stacked with decades of re-padding, but its form was narrow, which made it so much easier for my little hands to maneuver sleeves and cuffs […]

What a Pity

Now the rabble that was among them had a strong craving. And the people of Israel also wept again and said, “Oh that we had meat to eat! We remember the fish we ate in Egypt that cost nothing, the cucumbers, the melons, the leeks, the onions, and the garlic.  But now our strength is […]

Here I Am to Worship

Children in Worship

But the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him. John 4:23 Every Sunday God gives us a window of opportunity to show our children and grandchildren that there is only One Being worthy […]

Knowledge and Glory

Moses Parts the Red Sea

Two unmistakeable themes in the book of Exodus are the knowledge of God and the glory of God. We recently taught on the plagues and presently are working our way through the exodus. I made a list of all the verses I found in this section that mention know and glory. Exodus 6:7: I will […]

Building a Child’s Worldview

Building a Christian Worldview

For with you is the fountain of life; in your light do we see light. Psalm 36:9 There’s a phrase that I used to hear a lot when I was in college: “thinking God’s thoughts after Him.” I always loved hearing it because it served as a compass to direct me to the Scriptures whenever […]
