That’s what we are doing here today. We are dreaming big and sharing a day that is more than just the last day of the year.
Resolutions and Parties

I pray that HE overcomes my own sinful ways and helps them to see He crea all things and they can glorify him through learning about His plan and how he created math, language, science, history – all of it – he created.
And I pray that my children grab hold of their inheritance in his kingdom. I pray they truly grab on to the knowledge that their Heavenly Father is the King of Kings and through that – they learn to not limit themselves based on worldly standards, but they learn to cherish their place in his kingdom and……..
