Living Simply

Joining for their weekly GratiTuesday event!

I'm thankful for a daughter that has a heart for prayer.  She is only 2 years old but often asks to stop throughout the day to pray.  Sometimes she has a specific person in mind and sometimes she just wants to pray.

Saturday she asked to pray for Amelia (one of our friends and her babysitters who we also go to church with).  Amelia was taking her ACT test during this time -- a great time to be reminded to pray for her!

I pray that she continues to have a heart for prayers and I'm thankful that she reminds me often to stop and pray for others.

A. W. Tozer says that if we have a false view about God it is the same as committing idolatry because we are believing (and thus worshiping) a fasle God.  I want the students I work with (and my daughter as she grows old enough to understand) to continually be confronted with Biblical truth about who God is and what He has done.  One great resource for God-centered children's curriculum is is also a great resource for adult focused material, sermons, etc.
