He Calls Me By Name

I adore spending time with my twin granddaughters.  It is so hard to have them live fifteen hours away, but when I get a chance to visit, I make the most of it!

On my last visit, I was sitting on the couch with them chatting.  My pet name for them is Lovey Doves.  They made the comment, “Kitty, you always call us Lovey Doves.”  I replied that yes, I do!  I asked them what their Gigi calls them.  They…

Partnering with Parents Through Special Occasions

Celebration – just saying the word conjures up images of brightly colored balloons, ribbons, confetti, and delectable sweets. Who doesn’t love a fun celebration?! I know I certainly do! And if the book of Exodus is any indication, God does too! Over and over God instructed His people to build a monument or institute a feast in order to remember significant events.

As leaders, we have an opportunity to partner with parents during times of celebration too!

Every month, we send…
