So many times I am asked….”Are you crazy? 8 kids, adopting special needs, homeschooling… seriously, are you crazy?”
Well, kind of. I have spent many days answering this question both in church and in the grocery store! But the easiest way to answer it is with a passage from II Corinthians 5, “If we are out of our mind, it is for the sake of God, if we are in our right mind, it is for you. For Christ’s love COMPELS us because we are CONVINCED that one died for all, and therefore all died. And he [Christ] that died for all, that those who live should NO LONGER LIVE FOR THEMSELVES but for Christ who died for them. So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view. THOUGH WE ONCE REGUARDED CHRIST THIS WAY, WE DO SO NO LONGER.”
It is not for us, because of us, or about us, but the great transforming work that Christ has done in our hearts. That we desire to love ALL people the way Christ does. We are human, we are not perfect, we make mistakes, but we are convinced that THIS is what we should persue with our whole life!
The section entitled “WOMEN” will really be for moms. We are starting in our church both a marriage study and parenting study this 2010. This section will “contain” those things. It is my desire that it blesses and refreshes you in your walk with the Lord.
