The Spiral Curriculum

“Keep all my decrees by putting them into practice, for I am the Lord who makes you holy.”‭‭Leviticus‬ ‭20:8‬ Working with littles has taught me so much. For one: learning is never over.

He Didn’t Need Much Reason

“Always be full of joy in the Lord. I say it again—rejoice!”‭‭Philippians‬ ‭4:4‬ ‭ Are you quivering with joy? Not even after looking at this photo?

When You Get Hit With a Snowball

“Accept the way God does things, for who can straighten what he has made crooked?”‭‭Ecclesiastes‬ ‭7:13‬ ‭ Our unseasonably cool weather has produced an unseasonable outdoor activity. Snowmen!! In October! Adults may not see the delights of such an occurrence, but the littles have been ecstatic. “Did you notice, Mrs. Lowes? It’s a winter wonderlandContinue reading “When You Get Hit With a Snowball”

It’s Not Fair!

“Let the sea and everything in it shout his praise! Let the earth and all living things join in. Let the rivers clap their hands in glee! Let the hills sing out their songs of joy before the Lord, for he is coming to judge the earth. He will judge the world with justice, andContinue reading “It’s Not Fair!”
