Something amazing just happened in our house!  My almost 6-year-old son told me he was scared about something (a scary image he saw on a video game) and then immediately proceeded to take out his “fighter verses” and read all 26 scriptures aloud to our family!  It was...

Naming children is a big deal.  We spend months trying out different combinations and making sure the initials don't spell anything weird and debating with our spouses until we land on just the right combination.  Names are powerful, especially all of the subsequent na...

It turns out we cannot fit a week’s worth of worship into an hour and a half Sunday service.  No matter how many songs and scriptures and prayers we include, a week’s worth of worship really requires a week.  For those of you who would like to grow in your ability to w...

Recently my almost six year old son has been saying things like "Good people go to heaven and bad people go to hell."  I love to hear his little brain processing what he is hearing and learning from God's word but I was a little concerned that he, like many adults, was...

Reagan is our oldest child and here are some things we did with him this year for Kindergarten that we loved!  They aren’t in any particular order.  Hopefully some of these will work for your family also!
