A free (yes FREE!) 4-week Bible study.

I’ve put together a free 4-week Bible study just for you. This is designed for the really busy and overwhelmed who long to be in the Bible but just don’t seem to be able to make it work. I’ve been there, and know that sometimes you just need a bit of guidance and lots of grace.

But you may find yourself wondering exactly WHAT to share with your children.

Oh say can you see… Are you singing it yet? You’ll have the Star Spangled Banner in your head all day now. You’re welcome. There is incredible power in the repetition of words. It is why we will never forget the Pledge of Allegiance or the words to Ice Ice Baby. (Or maybe that’s just […]
