Winding down, but not ending...

Soon, we'll see or students heading back to school.  Our youth activities will be starting back up the week of September 8.  Summer flew by, and the rain is quickly approaching.  I hope you had opportunities to spend time as families together outside.

Candace and I returned late last night from a visit to Maine.  We had a fantastic time with our granddaughter and her parents.  My, has she grown!  So much has changed since she was born last October.  She is very soon to be walking; an experience which will change her life--and that of her parents--forever.

As summer winds down, we look ahead as we also take time to reflect.  The blessings of the past are fuel for the challenges and for growth in our futures.  Are you ready?  Are you cultivating a sense of expectation for what God is going to bring your way during the 2019-20 school year?  I am.  I want for people to recognize that a spiritual change and growth within me has occurred at this time next year.

Get ready.  This summer may be winding down, but the journey is not ending.

Book Suggestion

  • This week, I posted on the Parent FB page about a book I'm recommending for parents and grandparents.  It is small but is a useful tool for reminding us all about how important our roles are as we mentor and disciple our kids.
  • Here is a link for the book:
  • I have ordered 10 copies.
  • If you would like a copy (cost is $10) please let me know:
