Welcoming December With…

November 30, 2022

This month we celebrate Jesus. Whenever I think of His grace, I’m overwhelmed with thanksgiving. He’s the reason we have eternal life and hope for this life. He can heal all our deepest wounds and satisfy our longings. He will bring justice to the oppressed, and best of all, He gives life.

This month we want to revisit a devotional video that is dear to our ministry, plus it comes with homework and DIY activities for you, as well as your young and older kiddies. Plus, we are thrilled to provide coloring and copywork for those training and mastering their writing.

And as we do each month, let’s pray together:  Dear Father, thank you for sending Jesus to Earth. I’m grateful all authority will rest on Him in eternity because He will be kind and fair. I pray He will be my counselor this month and call me to rest rather than overwork or overdo. May He keep me close so I will be filled with His peace as I celebrate with family and friends. How wonderful that You are mighty and able to do whatever I ask or think. Shower me with your blessings this month. In Jesus name, Amen.

Welcoming The Glory of November 2022

November 1, 2022

“Dear Father, As November arrives and we prepare for the holidays, warm our hearts with your love and remind us to hover ever closer to you. Keep our hearts pure so we are ready to meet you anytime. The business of celebrating, decorating, preparing meals, and entertaining family can distract us from building your kingdom. Help us to proclaim you and your grace with diligence. In your mercy, overflow our hearts with praise for your gifts. Blessed be the name of the Lord. In the Name of Jesus, we pray, Amen.”

May the below Others-Centered November 2022 Calendar Challenge be an encouragement to you and those around you. My team and I pray these prompts get you one step closer toward our God, the Ultimate Father, who controls ALL things, including justice, peace, and the nations.

Untold Truth on Churchill

November 1, 2022

Churchill’s secretary and bodyguard collaborated this story, although Churchill didn’t publicly admit to the event.

Winston Churchill’s mother came from the United States, so he always felt a special comradery with the American people. In addition, he and Roosevelt shared a long-term friendship. After the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor, Roosevelt invited Churchill to the White House for Christmas, and they probably strategized about the war. One morning, Roosevelt devised a new name for what would become the United Nations. He eagerly rolled his wheelchair into the Lincoln bedroom to chat with Churchill. However, Churchill had just crawled out of the bathtub. The hot water had left his skin very pink. Horrified, Roosevelt apologized.

Churchill replied. “The Prime Minister of England has nothing to hide from the President of the United States.”
Churchill later remarked to King George VI that he was the only British Prime Minister who ever entertained a foreign dignitary in the nude.
What a joy to have a heart so pure, you have nothing to hide. Hebrews 4:13 says, “…there is no creature hidden from His [God’s] sight, but all things are open and laid bare to the eyes of Him with whom we have to do.” The chaotic world around us reminds us Jesus could return at any time. Be prepared!

“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” I John 1:9

Welcoming September Colors With Open Arms

“Dear Father, as we watch summer weather subside, we are overwhelmed at the intricacy of your creation.

You oversee the geysers and volcanos as they recycle debris from the oceans, and you observe tornados as they form. As we stand in awe of your works, we are humbled at your concern for us. You keep a running count of our hairs and know every word before we speak. We throw ourselves at your feet and beg for your mercy and protection this month. Sustain us as we serve our families for your glory. In the Name of Jesus, we pray, Amen.”
