Storytelling...
For the first 15+ years of camp Dan was always the storyteller. Comes natural to him, he’s so funny! I remember the first time I took “the mic” and told the infamous dog jaw story! Felt good to break out of my comfort zone...now I’m all about the stories and they keep getting gooder & gooder 🤣 #lionROAR #creativejuicesflowing #childlikefaith #bellylaughstoday

Looking back at what an incredible couple of weeks it’s been with family, nature, quiet and play. Just got back from Costa Rica and always dumbfounded by just how much energy and spiritual fuel some time away from the mundane can give.

I’ve noticed that when we’re stripped of the adult qualities that we so desperately yearned for as we inched along year after year in our childhood era, we subtly lean in a little closer to our childlike abandon that once extended such joy in nothingness.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So with a giant heart smile I extend a hand to you... let’s dwell in our inner-chiquita. 🤝 Let’s welcome her in daily, rather than wait for the task list to be complete, the world to slow down, the noise to soften or the moment to be right.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
THIS MOMENT is right!

Comment “Chiquita” if you’re coming to the soul-child dance party. 🌸🔥🌈🍭🤸🏽‍♀️

Having a child with special needs does not automatically give me all the answers on how to run this ministry properly. So with an open heart and mind I am diving in and I can’t wait to see what God has in store for Restoration Kids City. #childlikefaith #allthelittlechildren #rcjaxkids #rcjax @amyfentonlee

Today has been crazy but there's a new blog post up on my site. Sometimes it takes the simplicity of a child to teach us important lessons. What lessons have your children taught you lately?
Www.lifeadventureswithamy.com

“Milk is for beginners, inexperienced in God’s ways; solid food is for the mature, who have some practice in telling right from wrong.”
‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭5:13-14‬ ‭MSG‬‬

It is just me, or do you feel like a beginner at this Christ-following thing all the time? The thing that humbles me most isn’t hearing big-worded complex theology. It’s simple truths that speak to my soul. “I am me & you are you,” humbles me. “I like you just the way you are,” humbles me. “Everyone feels blue sometimes,” humbles me. “We all need help sometimes,” humbles me. “God loves you and likes you,” humbles me. •
When we get to Heaven, we are going to be blown away by how we thought we had grown into spiritually mature beings, but we had only scratched the surface of all God has to show us. •
What I’m saying is keep reading your Bible, praying, and wrestling through questions, because as you do you’ll realize how the simplest truths are the deepest.

I wish I had taken a picture of it but yesterday my baby girl noticed something. We visited our youth at their camp & joined in for part of the worship service. She watched as we sang & raised our hands in worship & surrender to Jesus. Then, she raised her hands & sat very still.
Each of my children has had moments like this. I know that it is partly just copying what they observe, but if I could capture their stillness, their clear observation that something deeper is going on, you might understand my sense of awe. It's a moment when the Spirit in them grasps that there is something more, something greater, something bigger in this life. That brief encounter is so sacred. It usually is short & fleeting but I see the depths of them stop & soak it in.
May they ever walk in awe of the God who created us & whom we serve.

As you can see my wife is a party animal! 🤣 Mellis and I have been going to parks trying to learn how to be kids again. Being an adult is okay, but it’s not nearly as fun as being a kid. I’m pretty sure that’s why Jesus made it a requirement to become like a child to enter the kingdom of heaven. If you are having a bad day or boring life, try going to the Pringle City Park and take a ride on this swirly thing. I guarantee you will smile! Then you will throw up. But hopefully somewhere in the midst of that you remember what it’s like to be like a child. -

Matthew 11:25-27 Amplified Bible (AMP)

Come to Me

25 At that time Jesus said, “I praise You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth [I openly and joyfully acknowledge Your great wisdom], that You have hidden these things [these spiritual truths] from the wise and intelligent and revealed them to infants [to new believers, to those seeking God’s will and purpose]. 26 Yes, Father, for this way was well-pleasing in Your sight. 27 All things have been handed over to Me by My Father; and no one fully knows and accurately understands the Son except the Father; and no one fully knows and accurately understands the Father except the Son, and anyone to whom the Son [deliberately] wills to reveal Him.

Such beautiful Words.

We're Simply amazed by Cici's fearlessness in this water! ❤ Ha! Her whole livelihood actually!😂 It got me thinking...Wouldn't it be nice if we all walked through life with #childlikefaith like this? Taking a jump into _____(whatever might be a fear of yours) knowing that our #HeavenlyFather will catch you, once you decide to take the jump in! Guiding you through the whole process, just as my Hubby did Cici. HE can! 🙌 HE will! I challenge us all to take on the rest of 2018 like this. #FaithoverFear #Fearless #Brave #TrustinHim #Wednesdaywishes #Lovemygirl #2yrsold #CianaRochelle #littlemermaid #Waterbaby #herhappyplace #sheinspiresme #proudmama #bigsmiles #watersmiles #WorshipWednesday #Xfactorkids #Gopro #GoProadventures

MT 11:25-27
At that time Jesus exclaimed: “I give praise to you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth,
for although you have hidden these things from the wise and the learned you have revealed them to the childlike.
Yes, Father, such has been your gracious will. All things have been handed over to me by my Father.
No one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son
and anyone to whom the Son wishes to reveal him.” #ChildLikeFaith #Morning #Gospel #Scripture #Catholic

Childlike is when we see ourselves as children in the arms of God. We learn to step back and let Him lead. —Marianne Williamson, A Return to Love #childlikefaith #trustinggod #healthyliving #makinghealthychoices #areturntolove #lovewins #livinghealthy #indiana #indianaliving #countryliving #ilovemylife #mycountrylife #essentialoils #youngliving #teamswiftfire #jeditribe #consciousness #consciousliving

Yesterday on my early walk, I felt the sun's intense heat on my back. And the #poem began:

The heat of His Son
Fires my soul
With love for He, the only Holy One ... The full poem Surrendering is waiting at the link.
May these words draw your eyes to Him.
