  • Memorial Day
    A Memorial Day message for the kids. Tomorrow is Memorial Day. It is often considered the “unofficial start to summer.”  Typically, people celebrate with cookouts and other types of festivities, and children are excited about school being out and summer vacation finally here. Lots of city pools, typically, open on Memorial Day weekend too. But this Memorial Day is anything but typical! The pandemic has altered this holiday and the ...
  • Heroes
    A Hero message for the kids You’ve probably heard a lot about “heroes” during this Corona Virus pandemic. Back in my day (here I go again showing my age), heroes were Superman, The Lone Ranger, Batman (I loved Batman), Mighty Mouse, even Underdog. This pandemic has certainly improved our perspective on who the real heroes are. ...

The children put goodie baskets on their ...

    A “happy birthday to me!” message for the kids. Today, April 26th, is MY birthday! And it is a very monumental day. Did you know, I have NEVER been this old before??!! That makes today a pretty special day, at least for me. But because I’m getting older, I might have to start thinking about some ...
  • Earth Day
    An Earth Day message for the kids. In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. Genesis 1:1 And God called the dry land Earth; … and God saw that it was good. Genesis 1:10 On Wednesday, April 22 we celebrate Earth Day. This good Earth that God created is certainly worth celebrating. I remember the first Earth ...
  • Empty Easter
    An “Empty Easter” message for the kids EMPTY – a word we have been fearing lately. EMPTY shelves at the store. EMPTY classrooms. EMPTY church buildings.  EMPTY toilet paper dispensers, for goodness sakes!!! Whatever shall we do? I’m not making fun of the current situation, because it is quite serious. I mean it is a pandemic! ...
