Picking Berries {Scripture in the Summer Sneak Peek}

Hey Friends!  Have you heard? I am super excited to share a sneak peek of something that has been brewing in my mind for a few months.  Every year, summer seems to fly by and even though we have a lot of fun -- I was looking for a way to use these seasonal activities in a way that drew us all as a family closer to Christ.  As I reflected on our usual schedule, I realized many of the daily activities we were already doing could easily tie into lessons found in Scripture (the Bible).  I started … [Read more...]
