Time with God


My family has been having morning devotions for the past three years now during breakfast. It is a great time for us to get together and focus on God as a family before we face the day. The book we are currently using is Jesus Calling for kids. Sarah Young the author takes a scripture verse and then writes from God's perspective to His children. Some people can get hung up and think that it is irreverent. If you are doing the devotions with you children and help lead the conversations with them I have seen this tool as a benefit and not a harm to our spiritual devotion as a family. Sarah is a masterful writer and love the creative talent God has given her for this amazing resource for families.

Friends and Servants of God!

One of our friends at Church is Kevin Chalupka. He works at Samaritan's Purse and invited us to come visit and tour the ministry. It was such an amazing day! God is so good! When we were done with the tour I came away humbled and feeling a little guilty for the things I complain and whine about on a daily basis. Franklin Graham is being used by God and has done an amazing job investing in others. Thank you Samaritan's Purse for all you do to help reach this world for Christ!

Servant Leadership

Servant Leadership is the example Jesus Christ gives us to follow. If you want to be first you must be last. Whatever you do to the least of these you do unto me. Love your neighbor as yourself. This concept is not new but it is hard to actually do in day to day life. I strive in my personal life to live this way and always fond myself coming up short. 

Karl Bastian the Kidologist does this constantly. Kidology alone is a place to serve Children's Ministers. Karl all the time is seeking to place others first, helping their ministry and helping others grow spiritually. The Kidologist is one of a kind and it is an honor to have him as a friend. If you do not know about Kidology check it out at www.kidology.org

Take time to invest in those around you and serve others!
