We are a busy family who juggle work, ministry, and our family on a regular basis, but God gives us the strength. Our desire is to serve the Lord with all our hearts and see our children grow up with a close relationship with Him. Our two children Elisha (11) and Bethany (10) keep us on our toes, but we wouldn't have it any other way.
Sadly this was Elisha's last year as a camper, as he will be thirteen before the next year. Thankfully God moved on camp this year and he (Bethany too) really stepped up and reached out to other kids in prayer. It was an awesome few days with some really great kids. I think this may have been the best one yet!
It's my kiddos this past Sunday morning and the kids' worship team singing Smellin' Coffee by Veggietales for all the moms in the audience. Then they went and gave out flowers and coffee cup (and scented) candles to all their mommies. Awwwww....
Elisha and Bethany are on the right side of the screen. Elisha is in yellow and Bethany in blue.
Sorry for the extra 15 seconds or so in the beginning... you just never know when those sound guys are going to start up the music! And yeah, feel free to click off it at the end too. There's probably about 45 extra seconds on there as well.
Here she is, performing solo for the first time in last week's VBS fundraiser/Talent Show. She was so nervous in the beginning, can you tell?
I wanna say this is the longest song she has ever done as well, but maybe when they play with the band she's played longer. Still if she squeaked along then no one was the wiser (except maybe her band teacher) because the other kids are there to cover you up.
I still think she did great for the first time! She's way braver than I ever was at her age!
