It's out there. I promise. There is real music out there. Music for kids that won't make parents want to poke their own eyes out. This is the beginning of several posts on this matter so lend me an ear, check out my picks, and be ready to sing along with a smile!
I think my husband would agree that our top pick is a group of dads who love to tell the story of Jesus. Meet Go Fish. Their music is fun, upbeat, and creative. We keep the preschool cd at the top of our playlist and you may be surprised to learn that the band just released an album of hymns! Say what? Yes, Grandma would be so proud. Their latest release, "Kickin It Old School", features songs such as "Blessed Assurance" and "I'll Fly Away". Go Fish's music is some that parents and grandparents can not only sing by heart, but will have fun teaching to the kids in their lives.

While browsing through children's ministry blogs today I found this video. What a powerful reflection of a child's heart! And what an overwhelming reminder of the huge task that God has laid before all those who work with children.

2. the idea, image, desire, feeling, etc., itself.
3. the state of being obsessed.
4. the act of obsessing.

This past weekend Judson hosted it's first annual Women's conference. We have had a few Women's Retreats in the past, but this was our first attempt at this one-day conference format. We were pleased to have Marybeth Whalen, of Proverbs 31 Ministries as our speaker. Marybeth's honesty and open spirit made her easy to relate to and was encouraging to the soul. We also were blessed to have Holly Benner, from Redeemer Fellowship Church as our worship leader. Holly's beautiful voice led us into worship and connected us to The Lord. I was blessed through this conference and I can't wait for next year!

Girls of Grace met last Saturday for it's first meeting and we were thrilled to have 16 girls there in the middle of a snowstorm! The lesson was about Faith and family with emphasis on Ruth (from the Bible) and Corrie Ten Boom. If you haven't read about either of those amazing women, I encourage you to do so! We made a cool wall plaques and conversation starter take-out boxes! You won't want to miss our next meeting on February 7.
Wisdom Warriors will be meeting on January 24. They are studying the Israelite's journey to the Promised Land and will be spending some time talking about courage. I heard a rumor that they may be eating ice cream sundaes as well!!
