How Children Meet God

July 24, 2012

I read this quote earlier and it was really one that touched me deeply:


The way we talk to our children becomes their inner voice.

– Peggy O’ Mara –


Taking Peggy’s words here a step further than she appears to say, I firmly believe and know that not only do we affect the way the children in our lives view themselves in later life, but also the way in which they know God Himself depends largely upon the way in which we talk to them and make them feel.  When we grow impatient or reactionary . . . when we speak without considering our tone, our word choice, and the power of life and death contained in words, we can do lasting damage to another OR we can lead them toward the absolute knowledge that they are beloved sons and daughters of the King of Kings.  Which image are you projecting?  Is it the one you truly desire to?  PLEASE resolve to be a positive influence moving forward!  God bless you in your journey!

“Let the LIttle Children Come to Me”

February 9, 2012

I teach creative writing and story telling 2 hours a week in an after school program.  If you ever have such an opportunity, I encourage you to take it if you can.  The pay, in money, will not cover much more than the gas to get there and back, but the reward you will receive is far greater than anything you can deposit in a bank account. 

That being said, I have a wide variety of exercises I do with the children to encourage them to freely use their imaginations in their crafting of stories.  Today’s theme was “dreams.”  The children were to close their eyes and think of a happy dream. 

One little girl, when telling her story to the class said she dreamed of being able to hang out with her very very very most favorite person in the whole wide world.  “Guess who it is?”  She asked excitedly.  “Jesus”  she then revealed while excitedly waving her arms. 

While I admit, every one of my students make me smile whether they love snakes or mice or riding bikes, that little five year old girl who shared her heart especially touched mine today.

But Jesus called the children to him and said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.
Luke 18:15-17

My most recently published article on Technorati tells of a non-profit organization which is composed of many volunteers who spend some 60 hours a week in prison empowering and educating women, leading them in new directions so that they can turn their lives around upon re-entry into their communities and their personal lives with family and friends. 

“What would Jesus do?” has become a cliché in our culture, but I must say that the answer to that question related to this prison program, is a resounding “this is EXACTLY what Jesus would do!”

Prayer Requests (13) (via Heart Treasures)

June 7, 2011

This post is a “reblog” from a fellow blogger here. If you’ve not seen it yet, I encourage you to read what was written and join in. Scripture tells us, about prayer, than when two or three are gathered in His name . . . and my friends, together as the body of Christ we can change the world – not under our own power but by surrendering to Him and joining together. Pray with us, won’t you?

Prayer Requests (13) The Bible says: “Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.” Matthew 18:19-20 If God moves when 2 or 3 agree in prayer, I can only imagine what he can do when 500 or more agree! There are between 500-1,000+ people who visit my blog each month. A lot of them are regular visitors (daily or week … Read More
