I am over the pandemic. Admittedly, I have had it very easy! My husband and I both still have our jobs and my family is healthy. I cannot (strike that – should not) complain! But I’m over it. The sense I get is that everyone around me, whether you’ve faced significant hardships or not, is … Continue reading Why Did You Stop Fighting?
If you have school-aged kids – or even younger ones in daycare/preschool – you are well aware that they have been home with you for the last 124 days. That’s four months. A third of a year. But who’s counting? I think my most-used phrases in my household and in conversations with my friends have … Continue reading Let’s Talk About Grace
Last week I wrote about my helpful tip #1 – it’s okay to feel worried. And this week I have two more for you. Tip No. 2: It is OKAY to be frazzled. Oh boy can I relate to this one. We are a household of two working parents and two kids. We have a … Continue reading Fear Stops Here
This week we reach the end of Abraham and Sarah’s story and begin moving through the story of their descendants. This family drama has it all. Sacrifice, deceit, and an epic love story. When reading these stories, there cannot be any doubt that Abraham and Sarah’s family is blessed directly by God and that He … Continue reading Sacrifice, Deceit, and an Epic Love Story
This Sunday we are reviewing the building blocks of our faith to make sure our preschoolers who are graduating to elementary Sunday school in just a couple weeks understand (on an age-appropriate level) what it means to be a Christian. So we’ll talk about what it means to follow Jesus, where our Bible stories come … Continue reading Building On
Jesus had grandparents. That's weird to think about. This week we'll read the Luke account of Jesus' entire lineage. If you have a curious child who wants to compare it with the list in Matthew, you'll notice some differences. DOES THIS MEAN THE BIBLE CAN'T BE TRUSTED!?!? No. Both accounts put their emphasis where they … Continue reading Jesus Had Grandparents
Today in preschool we got a little messy with our craft (fruit stamping) and silly with our new song and game. Some lessons just lend themselves to be extra fun! And it works, there was definitely more “chatter” at pick up than usual. Sometimes to understand things easier it’s really good to use our imagination … Continue reading Fruit Of The Spirit’s Not A Coconut
School’s Out for Summer! School’s Out Forever! When we roll out of the last pick up of the year blasting Alice Cooper and screaming our lungs out, I know for sure that summer is officially here!!! And I love, love, love that we’ve moved Munger VBS to the beginning of summer this year. So we’ll … Continue reading Summer, Summer, Summertime
My big kid (7 years old) has a lot of questions about his faith and God. And that’s good. We strongly encourage questions at home, even if we don’t always have the answers. He often complains that God doesn’t talk to him. I think, like many of us, he’s waiting on a booming voice to … Continue reading When Your Heart Moves
Because our Easter celebration in Garret Park was so awesome, we thought we’d share some highlights with you! We had so many friends stop by our MungerKids table and make egg maracas so they could joyfully join in Easter worship. We handed out hundreds of Family Guides to the Gospel of Mark. We hope you … Continue reading What’s Next?
