God's All-Star Champions

This past week (Monday to Friday) my kids participated in a Vacation Bible School (VBS) at a local church where one of our friends attend.  My daughter was one of the helpers.  This is her second year of helping VBS at that church.  She decorated the church, set up the props, prepared snacks, counted the offering, etc.  My boys (natural athletes) enjoyed all the sports and games while learning about living and winning God’s way. 
The VBS’s theme is God’s All-Star Champions (wearing God’s gear, "the full armor of God.")  My 7 yo son was one of the 3 kids who succeeded at memorizing Ephesians 6:11, 13-18 (putting on the full armor of God).  My daughter already had that memorized so she was able to help her brother memorize the verses.  My 4 yo son managed to memorize other shorter verses.  At home we always encourage one another on Bible memorization.  We try to keep it fun and interesting while reminding our kids its importance and benefits.  "I have hidden Your word in my heart that I might not sin against You."  Psalm 119:11  "Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path." Psalm 119:105 

The Bible class’s teacher at VBS complimented my boys for their obedience, attentiveness, pleasant smiles, and great knowledge of the Bible.  That made my day/week.  I praise God for His blessings upon our kids…our family.  I often say to my kids, "Let’s shine for Jesus!"  They do shine!

I’m so thankful that my kids are on God’s team.  They truly are God’s all-star champions!
