Hello, First Look Friends! “Love God. Love People.” It’s the greatest commandment in a nutshell. It’s what I’ve taught my daughter since she was young. Your actions should show others that you love God and love people. As she’s gotten older, she’s come to realize that by loving others and serving them, she IS loving God. And, she’s sharing His love with those around her. It’s been a fantastic development to watch, and it’s one we pray will happen in every preschooler we touch with this month’s... Read More

Hello, First Look Friends!  It’s a very special month this month. It’s Easter!

Hello, First Look Friends! Merry Christmas! Is there a more fun month than December with a preschooler? I say no. Their little faces light up with awe as they take in all the music and lights and new experiences. They sparkle just as much as the Christmas decorations around them. We’re going to sparkle too this Christmas! As we share the story of Christmas throughout the month, we’ll make a “Story Sparkler” to go with that piece of the story. By the time they’ve made it through December, each... Read More
