5 Reasons To Send Teens to Christian Camps  

Last summer I led a small group of teenagers at  Camp 220 with my church. I had heard many great things about this camp and how teens’ lives had been dramatically changed, and I wanted to experience it first hand with the students from my neighborhood Bible club.  It was an unforgettable experience, to say the least.

Erkmann Family Highlight

A year ago my family was blessed to meet the Erkmann family when we attended a World Vision walk to raise money for clean water. As we drove up to the race, we were delighted to find a family of smiling kids passing out necklaces and race bibs as others prepared for the walk.  The Erkmanns have SUCH a heart for the poor around the world and involving others to make a difference.  Our family was touched by their servant hearts and the overall mission of the walk!

Best Christian Audio Dramas for Kids

Have you ever wished you could eliminate those countless hours of screen time on long road trips?  What if you could give your kids a constructive activity that the whole family enjoys? I know books are great, and we encourage our kids to read in the car as much as possible. It’s also important to use some car time to talk or play family games, but it’s nice to have other options as well. One of the activities we enjoy on road trips and when traveling around town is listening to audio dramas: stories that come to life through the character’s voices and sound affects without the visual input.

Khripunov Family Highlight

I recently met a wonderful lady named Victoria who is part of a refugee ministry.  Her family ministers to refugees from countries all over the world.  I was amazed by her heart for serving others and how she and her husband, Sergrey,  have involved their whole family in sharing God’s love with others.

To Save or to Spend: Teaching Kids Money Management
from a Biblical Perspective

As we teach our children to know and love God and follow in His ways, encouraging them to honor God with their money is an important task that cannot be neglected. One of the roles my husband plays in parenting our kids is teaching them about money management, since he is both knowledgeable and interested in the topic.  We have also learned from other parents and resources and implemented some basic strategies to help get our kids off to the right start.

McMullen Family Highlight: Foster Care and Adoption

I have had the privilege of knowing the McMullen family for many years and hearing first hand their stories of bringing children into their home through foster care and adoption.  I know the road has not always been easy for them, but seeing their beautiful children become part of their family and watching how God uses them to impact other families by their ministry is inspirational.
