Don’t Be Afraid

Our dryer emits a loud buzz when it is finished drying our clothes and this scares our toddler.  Every time he hears it he runs to his Daddy or me, terrified.  We hold him for a moment and then gently explain to him, “The dryer is just saying ‘I’m done.  I’m done drying your clothes’”  … More Don’t Be Afraid

God’s Helper

Our son’s favorite story is Samuel Listens to God.  It is one of the stories in the Bible Study Guide for Beginners.  The other day he was reading it after a long time had passed since I read it to him.  He remembered it very well, especially the part where God was calling Samuel.

The Lexus Temptation

Hallelujah

I learnt the other day that “Hallelujah” means “Praise the Lord”.  Our toddler has been saying this word lately. Psalm 145 is a Hallelujah psalm.  It praises God for His works, greatness, love, mercy, provision and graciousness. Many people who encountered Jesus during His three and a half year ministry had a “Hallelujah” moment.  The … More Hallelujah
