Reagan, Abigail, and Malachi attended teen camp with our home church at the beginning of June. They had an amazing time and were talking about going next year the day they returned home!
The following week, Isaiah went to his first overnight kid's camp with our church. We were all a little nervous for him to be apart from Mom and Dad for a few nights, but he did great and loved it! He too is already talking about returning next year. We are so grateful for the youth and kid's ministries at our church and the intentionality they have to point our children to Jesus.
We have taken a few trips to the library to stock up on books for the summer and often find at least one or two of the kids with their noses in a book, it's a beautiful thing!
Summer break also means more time for hanging out with friends, going to the movies, the beach, getting sweet summer treats, and exploring our area.
In the midst of all of the fun, we are still walking through a season with some unknowns and desperately need wisdom from the Lord as we seek answers. The lyrics from the song "Firm Foundation" ring very true for us right now...
"I've still got joy in chaos, I've got peace that makes no sense, I won't be going under, I'm not held by my own strength, 'Cause I've built my life on Jesus, He's never let me down, He's faithful through every season, so why would He fail now? He won't!"
