Yesterday, I told my Sunday School class that we were going to make “Christmas Finger Puzzles” for our craft.
They took one look at my finished example and told me that I was making was a “cootie catcher”.
No matter how often I tried to correct them, they insisted that these were “cootie catchers”. Apparently, in other places these little origami projects are also called “fortune tellers.”
Apart from the names, this is a really fun little Christmas project to work on.
Have you ever felt God calling you to step out in faith and obedience … only to be discouraged by the people that you thought would support you?
Have you ever been excited to obey God… only to find, halfway through the journey, that God seems distant and your soul is growing weary?
After stepping out in obedience to God, have you ever found yourself in a completely unexpected place, wondering if God really does have the situation in control?
There is risk in obedience to God. There is vulnerability in true worship. Obedience to God’s call to worship will set you apart, make you different from the people around you. True worship will open you up to derision and scoffing. Obedience will cost you time, energy, money, and even relationships.
But it will be worth any cost. Oh, will it be worth it!

Do you need some last minute Thanksgiving ideas?
I often wait until the last minute to come up with ideas for the holidays. Then, I do a quick search on pinterest and am overwhelmed by the projects – projects that require days to complete, lots of materials that I don’t have money to buy, and more “crafting” skill than I will ever have.
This list is not like that.
The ideas in this list can be pulled together quickly with inexpensive materials that you probably already have on hand.
Halloween. Love it or hate it, we can’t escape it.
How will you talk to your kids about Halloween this year? Regardless of how you celebrate or choose to not celebrate Halloween, your kids will be exposed to the themes of Halloween every time you go to the store to grab a gallon of milk.
For a Christian parent, however, this isn’t something to be scared of or avoid. Halloween can actually gives us some excellent opportunities to speak with our children about spiritual truths.
Here are three Halloween conversations that you can have this year that will actually point your kids towards the Gospel.
Its fall. And Halloween is right around the corner.
Love it or hate it, you won’t be able to ignore Halloween this year. It’s everywhere.
It’s waiting for you at the grocery store. It’s evident on billboards. And, it might even be found in the decorations in your neighbor’s yard.
