I want my kids to experience life with Jesus on a daily basis. I want them to see it, feel it, know it, crave it, and desire it. I want them to know of the world’s needs and God’s goodness – up close and personal.
Our family mission statement comes from Isaiah 61:1-6. Verse 6 says, “They will be called mighty oaks, a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendor.”
God has given me little acorns to steward well so that they might become mighty oaks for his splendor! I have concluded the best way for me to raise kids that love Jesus and love people is for them to engage the broken world with me! I don’t want to talk theory to them; I want to show them what it’s like to be “on the go” living for and in Christ.
Through these posts, I hope to give snapshots of how to run hard after God, chase little people, and engage broken humanity – all at the same time.
When Chad and I prayed about adding kids to our family, our prayer was that God would NOT give us children if we could not both continue to live our lives focused on Christ and his concerns for the world. God heard that prayer and continues to honor it. We call our kids “little nomads” on a journey with us FOR Christ.
The Great Commission states, “As you are going, make disciples of all nations…” As a family, we are simply trying to engage a broken world together. Chad and I are simply two trees with the gifts of two little acorns. Hoping we all mature into big oak trees.
More later…. On the go….
