A Bible Study That Shows How Jesus Changes Everything



 
When tracing the steps throughout Jesus' life, a good place to start is the Gospel of Mark, which focuses on His teachings, the miracles He had performed, His crucifixion, and His resurrection. I've recently had the pleasure of partaking in a new Bible study called Mark: How Jesus Changes Everything. This twelve-week study is part of The Gospel-Centered Life series.

Rejoicing Motherhood: The Wonder That is You ~ Plus a GIVEAWAY




I'll never forget the day when I had first found out that I was pregnant with my son. There was a mix of disbelief, shock, and of course pure happiness and excitement.

Seek and Explore Devotions for Kids: 365 Days of Hands-On Activities



 

I hope everyone is having a great summer! I know we've been enjoying the warm weather while we can, and spending a lot of time outdoors. Of course, that doesn't mean that we're not getting in that extra bit of time with God. Just recently, I've had the pleasure of receiving the brand new Seek and Explore Devotions for Kids, and I'm really excited to tell you all about it!

If the title of this devotional sounds a bit familiar, it may be due to the fact that I had also shared a children's Bible from the Seek and Explore series earlier this year. In case you've missed it, be sure to catch my previous post about the NIrV Seek and Explore Holy Bible. Seek and Explore Devotions for Kids is the newest book in the series, and so far we've been beyond impressed with what it has to offer!

Epic: The Story that Changed the World





When I think of some of the most incredible pieces of literature ever written, the Bible definitely hits number one on the list. "Epic" is a word that can describe some of the stories and events that have occurred throughout Biblical history. That brings me to the newest treasure in our collection of children's reads, Epic: The Story that Changed the World. This book includes 320 pages of nonstop Bible stories. From a great flood, to heroes that conquered evil, to the amazing miracles that Jesus had performed; children will be taken on a journey through Biblical times to discover the stories and understand God's great master plan from beginning to end. 

A Helpful Resource That Teaches Children About Sin, Conviction, and the Gospel



 
 
It's never too early to teach children about sin and what God says about it. In fact, I always say the earlier the better. As a Christian family, this is a topic that we began discussing many years ago when my son was a wee little one. Most children typically learn the difference between right and wrong early on, but taking it a step further to discuss when it means for their own eternity and the one way that they can be washed clean, is vital for their salvation. It also helps pave the way for their walk with God.
