The Faith of a Child...

You will need to scroll to the bottom of the page and pause my playlist so that you can hear


Back by popular demand... At least from Aunt Denise, is the you tube video...

The first is of Emma reciting her memory verses. She actually knows more now. They memorize scripture all summer and ever Wed. night, the kids that know their verses get to make a trip to the pink dipper (ice cream shop). I've learned more consecutive scripture this summer than I ever have in my life..

The video of Chloe makes me cry every time I watch it. We love the "Praise Baby" CD. I want my kids to feel free to praise God with no reserve so that's what we do. We put it in and sing to the top of our lungs and throw our hands in the air and dance (uh huh, that's right we dance).. And we praise God... I have a theory.. My mom used to dance around the living room with us. Usually to Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers, "Island In The Stream".. Maybe that's where my fascination with Kenny Rogers comes from.. Well occasionally, I will hear one of those songs and I'm flooded with sweet memories from my childhood. So what if I can help my children associate songs about God with sweet memories and happy times... Well, I'm gonna give it a try.






I think this is what Jesus meant when he said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these". in Luke 18.

Goodness! That first video brought back some memories of summers. All those verses are still with me and I still remember the hand motions!

The last video is precious... She can really get up and move! She's doing such a great job!

Ok, I may have asked for more than I could handle. I always said that the kindergarteners I teach often think they know more than I do. I am sure that Emma knows more scripture than I ever have. (I hate to admit that). So there is one kindergartener that really does! And may I say, Dance Chloe Dance! I can't wait to see you guys. Aunt Denise

I had a hard enough time with the Gettysburg Address and I was how old? I can't even remember but much older than Emma. She did great! I'm sure you are very proud of her. She is awesome at the hula hoop! I'm impressed!
And Chloe - she is so sweet - give her an extra kiss and big squeeze from me. :)
