OK, are you ready? Please give us your best five minutes on:::




As the Advent season is getting underway

I am praying that our family will begin to wonder as never before

That through our Jesse Tree study we will begin to truly wonder at the amazingness of God

That His gift of a little child, His only Son would spark wonder in our hearts and our daily lives

So much so that it doesn’t end in 26 days, but would continue on….

Wonder that is so captivating, so powerful that it grasps our hearts and never lets go

Wonder that God who is I Am, would care enough for us to send His Son as Man

To a stable in a manager, to a lost and dying world, to a cross filled with nails

To a tomb covered with a stone, to rise again and return Home!


I am filled with awe struck wonder……

That I pray would never leave…..

That God loved me…..loved my family…..loved you enough

To send His Son to be born, live, die, and rise again

For me……


Awe struck wonder……

May this Advent Season fill you with wonder of our Father’s love for you.

    It’s so easy to lose the true meaning of Christmas among all the frivolity in the world. it’s so important to keep our eyes on the Lord and remember the true reason to celebrate because through the birth of Jesus, we gained salvation through Him!!
