Walk This Way

This year was the first year that both kids were of age to attend Vacation Bible School, so we made it a family affair. We signed both kids up and Eric and I volunteered to be small group leaders.

VBS is for kids ages preschool through 5th grade. The driving message this year was to walk God's way. This was a 5 day production that involved a dance team, a drama team, crafts, snacks, games and lessons.

I had the privilege to lead a group of five kindergarteners. They were engaged and inquisitive. They worshiped with song and dance. They asked a ton of questions. And as exhausting as the week was, I found myself sentimental about it coming to an end. The sweet, innocent hearts of my five kids were filled to capacity with love for Jesus, and I am so honored to be a part of the journey to grow in their faith.

Meanwhile, my own children were involved in the preschool curriculum. They came home everyday with an awesome craft, singing new songs and showing off their new knowledge about God.

This week was unlike anything I've ever been a part of. I am so humbled by the entire experience and it is my hope that this becomes an annual event for our family.
