If we as parents can learn to embrace our relationship with God, we will be empowered to create for our children and anyone else who crosses our doorsteps a true culture of love—a home environment where the life of God is breathed through all moments and love becomes the fuel for living with hope, purpose, and expectation.

In this study you will spend time exploring all four gospels of the Bible and discovering the ways Jesus healed, provided, calmed, and resurrected.

…blessed is the one who perseveres,
who does the hard things & puts feet to the floor & just begins,
who doesn’t stop putting one brave step in front of the other
because tough times never last but those who hang on tight to God always do.
We’re remembering again today, that the God of invincible reliability, of infinite resources, of insistent love, says, “Give me everything you are carrying — because I want to carry you.”
Just exhale (right now) … and Smile. Sometimes smiling is an act of defiance against what’s pressing down hard. Sometimes smiling is an act of sheer bravery. Sometimes smiling in brokenness is how we re-member:
We are the Resurrection People & there is more happening than what seems & we practice our faith. Practice Smiling. Practice Joy. Practice counting gifts.
He’s got us today. No situation is more hopeless than our Savior is graceful.
“Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you” Ps. 55:22
