Happy New Year and My 2018 Word

A new year...
Time to reflect... 
Time to plan...
Time to move forward...

For my One Word this year, I chose 
LOVE
I had considered so many choices of words, but it kept coming back to this...

No matter what I do... if not done in the context of LOVE... it is pointless and worth nothing. (I Cor. 13)

Hi, My Name Is ... And I Committed Adultery...


It’s a truth universally unacknowledged that sin will hunt you down and advertise its presence the moment you try to hide it.

Sweet Mix of Joy and Sadness

This Christmas, there's plenty of room at the inn.

Nestled in the snow-covered Sangre de Cristo Mountains near Santa Fe, the Grey Sage Inn looks like the perfect place for weary travelers to escape the craziness of the Christmas season. There's plenty to see in historic Santa Fe during the day, and the inn's owners, Maude and Silas Thornhill, are happy to spend their evenings hosting this year's guests from across the country.

But an unusual snowstorm throws a wrench in the festive mood. The sprawling inn becomes close quarters as stranded guests discover this Christmas won't be the relaxed vacation they expected. Tension and fear mount as the storm worsens,

Very Fun Evangelism Tools for Use with Kids

I really enjoyed receiving this child evangelism sampler pack. The tracks are so fun and attractive. My sampler included a small wordless book made out of shiny card stock with a gold page - not just yellow - for heaven. It also contained a wordless bracelet band that would be pretty cool for kids to tell other kids about Jesus just by wearing it. The kit also had a bracelet you could make yourself with beads the colors of the wordless book. This would make a nice project for a class and then the kids could take them home and use them to share the gospel with their friends.

There were various types of tracks. My favorites were the ones with a plastic sheet that you move back and forth over the pages and it looks like the characters are moving. My daughter had a friend over and they had a blast using it. There were several different ones that you could use the plastic sheet with.

Leave an Awesome Legacy

A Bible study on Proverbs to complete and then pass on to a loved one as a gift. The perfect combination of a Bible study and a gift book! Let Scripture reform the next generation.
There are many different kinds of legacies we can leave, but sharing yourself and your faith with the next generation will always stand the test of time. Through showing himself and his wisdom in the book of Proverbs, God has also left his legacy with us and relies on us to share it with our children and grandchildren. But before we can share that wisdom, first we must grow in our own understanding and knowledge and record, reflect, and consider what we have learned.
Pass it On provides readers with an opportunity to create a legacy of wisdom and faith and to share it with their children and grandchildren.
