The size of our God

By Stephanie Parker My 4 year old son Maverick can easily swim from one end of our pool to the other… but only if I’m standing on the other side waiting for him. If I’m not there, fear grips his little heart, tears begin to well up in his eyes and he loses all confidence in his swimming ability. He’s swum back and forth a million times without needing my help to get across the pool. But what he needs more than my help, is simply my presence. As I contemplated this, it made me wonder how much braver we,...

By Stephanie Parker “Ur not gonna beleeb dis mommy,” my 4 year old son said with an excitement that rivaled that of Christmas morning. “I wost my car and den I prayed, and God found it for me!” You never know what a 4 year old might blurt out in excitement.

Faith and Spiderman

Christian Devotion Faith in God Job 1:21 John 10:10 Proverbs 30:5 Psalm 46:10 strength in God

Faith and Spiderman

By Stephanie Parker I’ve recently discovered that faith and Spiderman have something in common. Some of you know that my 3 year old son, Maverick, thinks he’s Spiderman. He introduces himself as Spiderman to perfect strangers, then, he shoots his ‘web’ at them. In typical Spiderman fashion, he is constantly jumping, running, fighting ‘bad guys’ and saving people. As you can imagine, trying to get ‘Spiderman’ to sit for 5 seconds to practice his ABC’s or eat a decent meal is like putting a hamster in his wheel and telling him, “Don’t move!” A few weeks ago however, Maverick (aka...
