Unlikely Heroes...

No one ever said that leading family devotions would be easy. Whether you have little ones like us or older children, leading a family Bible study time is difficult. Picture this: As you are trying to explain the truths of the Bible, your 1 year old is wrestling on the ground with your 2 year old. As you teach, you hear loud laughter, but you keep pushing and try your best. On a positive note, our children love to sing. Joshua's latest fav is "Your Grace is Enough." He loves singing that song as loud as he can. It's so awesome.
On another note, I have realized that I have several friends that are leading their families in discipleship. Josh and Tasha Via lead their children every night! Jason and Shanna Hand lead their daughter at least 3 nights per week! We stand amazed at you guys, and we're trying to develop consistency in our family. You guys are encouraging friends to our growing family!

July 20th huh? I just read the news on your church website. I'm already praying for you that God gives you a powerful word and a fresh anointing! I'd love to think we can be there, but if we aren't there physically, our hearts and prayers will be!

Hey Fred! I found your blog off Jennifer Brown's. How are you? It is amazing to see how richly God has blessed you. From what I could gather from reading your blog, you are a student pastor. Is that correct? Your wife is gorgeous and your kids are precious. It's so neat to read what God is doing in your life. And yes, I understand the difficulty of family devotions with a one year old. I find it most effective if I do it while she eats lunch and is strapped in the high chair...it's the only time she is not all over the place.
