February 2017 Editor’s Notes

The month of candy hearts and oversized stuffed bears has arrived. It’s the month we set aside each year to celebrate our love for those we hold near and dear. And what says “I love you” better than a box of chocolates or cards that play music when you open them?

Puzzles

When I was a little girl, my mom and dad had a Christmas tradition of giving me a doll, a book, and a puzzle. I LOVED putting together puzzles! We would spend the entire Christmas break from school working on puzzles.

March 2017 Editor’s Notes

Hello, First Look Friends! This month, we’re working to build into kids a love for others. Imagine with me, for a moment, a world filled with men and women who love others the way Jesus loves us.

Now that all of the presents are wrapped (and maybe unwrapped by now), the tree is decorated, the cookies are frosted, and the lights are up, take a... read more
Your Few Need YOU For Christmas

Your Few Need YOU For Christmas

Put up the Christmas tree…..check. Bake cookies and take them to the neighbors….check. Choose gifts for loved ones….check. Attend holiday parties….check. Be present with the preschoolers in your small group….check. Wait. There are so many things demanding our attention during this season. A good portion of them are beautiful, and sacred, and provide us with wonderful memories for years to come. But it’s a little too easy to treat the season as a challenge to be conquered instead of an... read more
