I Don’t Want “Good Kids”

November 11, 2012

It’s a scary time to be raising children.  It seems that there is so much out there just waiting to destroy them.  Between violence, abuse, sex outside of marriage and drugs there is a tendency to just want to take your kids to the nearest bomb shelter and lock them in.  I often hear prayer […]

May 27, 2012

The conversation went something like this: Ella:  …”why do I have to be on a team?” Cade:  “Because, that’s the game.” Ella:  “But, I don’t want to!  Why can’t I just be by myself?” Me:  “Um, Ella, Cade made the game.  You have to go by the rules he made.” I would love to say […]

Prayer Jar

February 20, 2012

I don’t know where I first read about the “prayer jar” idea, but it is something that we used to do when the kids were quite a bit younger. We want a way for our family to pray specifically for people in our lives, but sometimes it feels overwhelming as there are so many people.  […]

Back in October we had the Watoto Children’s Choir come to our church in Wisconsin. The sanctuary was packed as people from our church and community anticipated seeing this children’s choir that had come all the way from Uganda, Africa to share their story.
