Prince of Peace Compassion

The world we live in today is filled with chaos, sorrow, tumult, doubt, distractions, and negativity. We are bombarded with this everywhere we turn.

Many of us who are journeying through these troubling times may often wonder, as the hymn says, “where can I turn for peace?” There are times in… Read more »

Tomorrow I will be starting fun week long Easter advent activity. The reason I am doing this advent is because I want my children to really understand why we celebrate Easter and know that we have a Savior, and to learn that because He died for us, we too can be resurrected and live with our family forever! Another reason I chose to do this is because all the printables are already created and ready for me to just print and… Read more »
