One Crazy Week


July has been a crazy month in my house! We left on July 1st for a whirlwind trip to Texas to see extended family (definitely an adventure with an almost-2-year-old), came back for a few days, celebrated Jack’s 2nd birthday with family, and have been involved in Vacation Bible School at our church this week! We’ve been going non-stop … and it has been tiring … but fun! It’s a blast getting to see Jack experience elements of VBS for the very first time. He’s been making crafts (with a lot of patient help), singing songs, and playing with his friends. But most importantly, he’s been learning about Jesus!

Have your kids been to VBS this year? What were their favorite parts?

ParentLife Visits Saddle Ridge Ranch

68_VBS2010.pngToday is a very exciting day at LifeWay Christian Resources. It is VBS 2010 Preview Day (and Bring Your Child to Work Day!! LifeWay will be taken over by children, children’s ministers, and other children’s ministry workers as they get a taste of the Wild West on Saddle Ridge Ranch with an advanced look at the theme for VBS 2010.

Children in kindergarten through sixth grade, parents, and guests will participate in a worship rally and various VBS rotations. For lunch, the LifeWay cafe will offer special western-themed, kid-friendly food options! It promises to be a great time!

ParentLife has the wonderful opportunity of participating in the fun this year. We get our very own booth dedicated to letting people know about our magazine, our blog, and the LifeWay children’s devotional magazinesMore, Adventure, and Bible Express! We will be handing out business cards promoting the blog and directing folks to our Facebook and Twitter pages. Even more exciting … we will be giving away one free subscription to ParentLife and each of the children’s devotional magazines!

It’s going to be a great day!
