Saying "Good Byeeee" to 6th grade!

The Lord has totally blessed us with the most precious, beautiful, smart and funny daughter anyone could ask for. Yes, my 6th grader is now a 7th grader. Yesterday was her last day of 6th grade and we also had our Homeschool Promotion at church too. It turned out way better than I ever could have imagined. It was a lot of fun and such a blessing. Each family went up and handed their child a certificate and said something really sweet about them. And each family had such precious things to say to their children. It was amazing!

It's been a long road for us. When Toria started homeschool this year I was still working, for the first month that she was back to school. Her grades were not improving and I killed me, I prayed and cried out to God to keep me home to help her. Shortly after He answered my prayers. And for the next couple of months we would school for 6-8 hours a day. It was a rough, rewarding road. One that I would do over and over again. The Lord really was doing a work in both of us, for me it was self-scraficing. He was showing me how to do that and what that was and what it looked like. I have to be honest it was rough, there were days that I asked the Lord "are you sure"? I wanted to give up so many times, but when I did He lifted me up. I also was blessed with some great sisters in the Lord and dear sweet sweet sisters to encourage me along the way.

My girl went from hating math to liking it. I have to be honest I am glad that we are on summer break. I can't wait to see what the Lord is going to do next. Baby girl, I love you and you did an awesome job! You kept the good fight, you finished this race. Soon it will be time for a new one, but not to fret The Lord is with you wherever you shall go.

Galatians 6:9 NKJ
And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.

2 Thessalonians 3:13 NKJ
But as for you, brethren, do not grow weary in doing good.

Proverbs 22:6 NKJ
Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it.

God Bless you!

What is the Truth?

What is the truth?
Truth is not a feeling. Truth is not an idea. The truth is found in the Bible.Sincerity and good works do not bridge the gap of sin between God and man. Only the blood of Jesus can cleanse a person (Heb. 9:22; John 14:6). Sincerity and good works are merely the reliance upon what is in the individual to merit favor with God. Sincerity is a form of pride when it is appealed to as a justification for being accepted by God: "But God, look at my heart. See how sincere I was? I deserve to be in heaven."No. If sincerity and good works were good enough to satisfy God, then He wouldn't have given us the Bible to correct our sincerely wrong ideas, and He wouldn't have sent His Son to do what our good works cannot.Truth is what God says is true.The truth is important not because it is simply true. It is important because truth is what defines who and what we believe in.Eternity is a long time to be wrong. Especially about Jesus.

What me and my Family Believe

What We Believe
WE BELIEVE the worship of God should be spiritual! Therefore we remain flexible so the Holy Spirit may direct our worship.
WE BELIEVE the worship of God should be inspirational! Therefore we give a great place to music in our worship.
WE BELIEVE the worship of God should be intelligent! Therefore, in our services, we emphasize Bible teaching so God may instruct us how He would be worshipped.
WE BELIEVE the worship of God should be fruitful! Therefore we look for His love in our lives as the greatest evidence that we are truly worshipping Him.

How To Know God

How to Know God

Realize that you are a sinner. No matter how good a life we try to live, we still fall miserably short of being a good person. That is because we are all sinners. We all fall short of God’s desire for us to be holy. The Bible says, “No one is good—not even one” (Romans 3:10 NLT). This is because we cannot become who we are supposed to be without Jesus Christ.Recognize that Jesus Christ died on the cross for you.The Bible tells us, “But God showed His great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while were still sinners” (Romans 5:8 NLT). This is the Good News, that God loves us so much that He sent His only Son to die in our place when we least deserved it.Repent of your sin.The Bible tells us to “repent and be converted” (Acts 3:19 NKJV). The word repent means to change our direction in life. Instead of running from God, we can run toward Him.Receive Jesus Christ into your life.Becoming a Christian is not merely believing some creed or going to church on Sunday. It is having Christ Himself take residence in your life and heart. Jesus said, “Behold, I stand at the door (of your life) and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in...” (Revelation 3:20 NKJV).

If you would like to have a relationship with Christ, simply pray this prayer and mean it in your heart.

Dear Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner. I believe you died for my sins. Right now, I turn from my sins and open the door of my heart and life. I confess you as my personal Lord and Savior. Thank you for saving me. Amen.If you just prayed that prayer and meant it, Jesus Christ has now taken residence in your heart! Your decision to follow Christ means God has forgiven you and that you will spend eternity in heaven.

The Bible tells us, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9 NKJV).

Praise the Lord, if you just asked Jesus in your heart I want you to know that the Angels in Heaven are rejoicing for you and so am I. Go to and click on churches to find the closest church to you and go. Go and tell them that you've just accepted the Lord Jesus Christ into your heart. They will be able to lead you to the next step.

God Bless you Brethren.
In the Mighty Name of Jesus!!! Amen!!!
Your sister in Christ Jesus!!!
