She has a pink cotton print torso and is wearing a natural colored chenille diaper. The scripture patch on her belly reads:

"God is our refuge and strength, a very present help n trouble." Psalm 46:1-3

And, every sweet baby needs a blankie so she she comes with one of those as well to bundle her up...snug as a bug in a rug!! She is the same 15" size as our other dolls so you could purchase little clothes for her as well if you wish.

So what do ya think?? Is she a keeper??

Living Proverbs 22:6

"Train up a child in the way he should go
even when he is old he will not depart from it."
Proverbs 22:6

Summer is almost here!

Do you have some activities planned that keep Christ centered in your summer??

Focus on the Family publishes a magazine called Thriving Family. They had an article with some wonderful ideas on seizing the summer!! Enjoy your children as you nurture their faith!

I love it!!

One of their ideas was to create an alphabet scrapbook of God's creation. The first week would be the letter A and W. They could draw, take pictures or scrapbook items for each letter and you can discuss God's purpose for each.

Now my oldest is 11 (I think he would still have fun with this) and it is something my youngest at age 3 would love as well!

Another idea is to plant some flowers with your children. When you're done, tell them to wash by cleaning the dirt from their hands and fingernails. Explain how sin is like dirt that needs to be washed away. When we sin and ask God for forgiveness, He "washes" us clean. (John 13:1-11)

Isn't that awesome!

Do you have some ideas?

Do you know of any good websites with ideas??

Please share them with us...
Have a wonderful and blessed day!

PS~ Don't forget about the Cinderella Doll we are giving away!!

Let us Pray for each other!

Let us all pray for one another!

Our Fellowship {Calvary Christian Fellowship} is devoting Wednesdays to prayer. Oh, how the Lord is lovingly teaching me more and more about the importance of prayer and intimate time spent at His feet.

Over the past few heart has come to all of you!

We need to be joining together as one body and praying for one another! I think one of the biggest lies that the enemy tells that we are alone and nobody cares!

We love and care for each and everyone of you! We desire to pray for you!!

Phl 1:19 NKJV - For I know that this will turn out for my deliverance through your prayer and the supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ,

Phl 4:6 NKJV - Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God;

Col 4:2 NKJV - Continue earnestly in prayer, being vigilant in it with thanksgiving;

1Ti 4:5 NKJV - for it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer.

Jam 5:15 NKJV - And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven.

Jam 5:16 NKJV - Confess [your] trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.

Please share with us!

Is God speaking to you through a scripture or a situation? Let us know...let us encourage one another!

How can we be praying for you?

Father, I pray that this would be a safe place to come and lift up our requests and praises!!

May YOU be glorified!

Living Proverbs 22:6

"Train up a child in the way he should go,
Even when he is old he will not depart from it."
Proverbs 22:6

An article I read recently has pounded my heart and I want to share the first portion of it with you.

Your Position in Christ
One of the greatest gifts you can present to God is to believe, truly accept what He says about you.

Jesus resisted the devil by applying God's Word. When you are attacked, it is the knowledge and use of the Word that allows you to resist temptation. We cannot resist him by human effort. We resist him by spiritual means - by using the Word of God, being empowered by His Holy Spirit, and through prayer.

As we look at the Word, apply the Word in faith and obedience, allowing the Spirit to empower that action through prayer we can be victorious.

I Am Accepted in Christ Jesus
I am God's child (John 1:12)
I am Christ's friend (John 15:15)
I have been justified (Romans 5:1)
I am united with the Lord and one with Him in spirit (1 Cor. 6:!7)
I have been bought with a price; I belong to God (1 Cor. 6:20)
I am a member of Christ's Body (1 Cor. 12:27)
I am a saint (Eph. 1:1)
I have been adopted as God's child (Eph. 1:5)
I have direct access to God through the Holy Spirit (Eph. 2:!8)
I have been redeemed and forgiven of all my sins (Col. 1:!4)
I am complete in Christ (Col 2:10)
(written by Doug Morrell)

Now, personally I'm still learning this as an adult. I did not receive this as a child, but through grace, God is teaching me that I am loved unconditionally, He's not going anywhere, He is Truth and I am to stand firm on His promises and Trust Him! So, though I needed to read those words above myself (and remind myself daily of them) my thoughts went to our children. Our children need to be taught truth NOW! With all of the lies this world has to offer, what a marvelous gift we can give to them by teaching them the truth of who they are in Christ. How He loves them...who they are in Him.

I have printed this out and have started speaking these promises to my children. Speaking truth to them by name...

Trisin, you ARE a child of God!

Natalie, you have been redeemed and forgiven of all your sins!

Lola, you are complete in Christ!

Kolton, you have been bought with a price...and belong to Him!

Imagine how God will use this in their lives. How it will strengthen their footing on a solid foundation. God has entrusted us to raise them up in Him and has empowered us to do so through His mighty word and the Holy Spirit dwelling in us!

Seize the opportunity!
