Book Review and GIVEAWAY: Resilient: Child Discipleship and the Fearless Future of the Church

Image
ABOUT THE BOOK

As new research continues to show, the cultural gap between secularism and the convictional Church continues to widen. KidMin and youth leaders are asking, “Are we adequately discipling today’s kids to lead the future of the church in a culture that’s becoming increasingly hostile to the gospel?” For many, the answer is “no,” and a new conversation around making Resilient disciples is emerging. 

Resilient is an honest calling to ask robust questions about the future; it is a timely conversation in the midst of changing cultural landscapes; and it’s a love letter to KidMin leaders and disciple-makers to walk this road of child discipleship together. Resilient child discipleship focuses on three key areas, essential for shaping long-term faith:
Belonging – Highly relational ministry led by a loving and caring adultBelieving – Deeply Scriptural ministry rooted in the truth of God’s Word and the power of the gospelBecoming – Truly experiential ministry, designed to move kids …

My Review: Christmas season has come and past but this review is still timely!   I can show you why you should get this book so that your kids can get as creative as mine!   I got this book back in December and we loved looking at the rock creation pictures retelling the Christmas story.   I mean look at all the details you can find in the picture above with using only rocks!!   Rocks seem to be getting a lot of attention the la…

Merry Christmas 2019

Oh Christmas Lights, Oh Christmas lights, I love your little sparkle!  
We were so blessed that it wasn't too cold here in Iowa for this quick photo shoot.   I had scheduled family photos 3 times and cancelled 3 times for various reason so we grabbed some friends and went and took some great pictures!  
2019 was up and down and all around!   My kids are much more independent and we took a nice long family vacation in Florida and I will treasure those memories forever!  
Work has been more challenging so it has been exhausting physically and mentally which has really caused me to forget about self care... I gained some weight!  NO MORE! 
2020 will be about focus!   


Good Bye 2019!!
HELLO 2020

How would you describe your 2019 year?

Happy Birthday Jesus Pancakes

Image
The tradition continues with pancakes to celebrate Jesus birth!   
This year I went with a sheet cake for pancakes!   This allowed us three different types of pancakes.   1. Peanut butter and banana 2. Blueberry and cream cheese 3. Chocolate Chip
I think Blueberry was the overall winner!   My bananas needed to be a bit sweeter so that type didn't have much flavor.
