...I've gotten the question about church a number of times, so I thought I would give y'all an update all at once. We are still going to "The Big Church," which you can check out by clicking *here.* You might remember that we first decided to try it out because it had a Saturday evening service which works well for us on the weekends when Brad works on Sunday. I think we are settling in there pretty well.
After a couple weeks at "The Big Church" I was really ornery about going there again. Sort of pouting-on-the-inside. I had my eyes focused on a couple things that didn't sit well with me...running off a little list in my head... And as clear as can be, I heard, "don't be so self-centered." God and I had a little more in-depth conversation about that concept. But it basically ended with me understanding that this place might be it, and I might just miss it if I didn't open my eyes! Thank you, Lord, for your still small voice that can break through my pouting!
The boys really like their classes. Walker LOVES the pre-school worship time. He came out yesterday singing "where? down in my heart. where? down in my hear where? down in my heart. where? down in my heart..t... (on repeat, as is his style)." And after trying a couple, we are pretty happy with the Bible study group we go to on Sunday mornings. Its a topical study and right now the focus is parenting. The teacher is heavy on the dad being the leader in the family, and let me tell you, that is some refreshing teaching! The guys are doing a little men's weekend too. Low-cost, short-time-commitment, no frills, learning more about being men of valor. I am so thankful that we found a place for Brad to be with men that love the Lord. It is an answer to prayer, a gift beyond measure.
You can see Walker gives it a thumbs up...
I still very much feel like we are "new," but I am excited to see what God has in store for our family here.
