Happy Thanksgiving from Children & Family Ministry! Read on for some ideas for this Thanksgiving.
I am sure, dear reader, that you have your own memories of moments or days like this. Perhaps you are having one today: Your efforts are in vain, your sacrifices feel for naught, nothing is going right, and your worth seems bundled up into a tiny, barely perceptible knot somewhere in your aching chest.
Here’s something else about this Church we’re a part of: Kelly and I can’t provide all the water those seeds need. Our parents water them. Our siblings. And our friends, our brothers and sisters in Christ—those who are younger, older, those with many kids and those with none, those who long to be married, those who long for children. They (you) water as well. You are instruments of grace in my girls’ lives. They need you. I need you.
And then it’s up to God to give the growth.
Looking for a few good men...and women...and families...and stories...and reviews!
Life in the Forge is looking for guest writers, reviewers, and families for the Forging Families series. Take a look at the descriptions below and let Taraneh Kerley know if you are interested.
Write an original post: You may write on any topic related to family life, discipleship, parenting, or spiritual formation. You’ll need to get your topic approved first!
Participate in the Forging Families Series: An interview with an Iron Works family or parent about their parenting and/or a unique aspect of their family's experience. You don’t have to know it all; this is an opportunity to share your family’s unique story, testify to your faith, or share parts of your story that may offer encouragement, guidance, or support to others at Iron Works. Depending on the content gathered, these pieces may appear in interview or narrative format.
Write a Review: Have a great parenting or family life resource to share? Write a review!
