"But he said to me, 'My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.' 

Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me."

~2 Corinthians 12:9 NIV

"And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer."

Summer hiatus

Hello readers! Thank you for allowing me a short "summer hiatus" from the blog!  Whew, it's been a busy couple of months.  My son graduated from preschool, we buried my mom, I celebrated two graduations and we have enjoyed the summer sun at our local waterpark. I've played mommy chauffeur and worked on a couple of editing projects.

I hope your summers are going well!  What a fun time of year for adventure.  Comment with your favorite summer adventure thus far!

Much love,

 BE KIND  by Callie Tuel

            Jesus is a savior. He saved ALL of us. A savior is someone who saves. For example, Batman and Superman save people, Martin Luther King Jr. helped to save people from the segregated times, but Jesus saved every single one of us.

                So, what did Jesus save us from anyway? Sin! When you steal a cookie from the jar, lied about something, or blamed someone for something YOU did, know that Jesus breathed his last for YOU, because he loves you. You have been forgiven, and though you were once crimson with sin, he washed them white as snow.
                Sometimes we don’t feel the love. Times like when your dad is in the hospital, or you spill juice all over your favorite outfit, or you make a mistake, it doesn’t feel like he loves you. Even in times like this, God is on your side.
                We all feel like this sometimes, so we all need to try our hardest to be the light in somebody’s  day, the peanut butter to their jelly, or the milk to their cookie. Sometimes all someone needs is a little bit of love, and we all know we can give it. So today, I challenge YOU to step outside your comfort zone, and…
