much needed encouragement

It's things like this email from one of Isaac's teachers at church that makes what we do SO worth it. My heart is overwhelmed. Let me also add that I am so incredibly blessed by the men and women who volunteer their time each week to pour into my children. It's humbling.

We did worship and prayer together before we started our lesson at church last night. We put on worship music and the kids were walking around praying and worshiping. I happened to look up and I saw Isaac walking around and worshiping God with his whole heart. He was so into it, and not fooling around like some of the other kids,and it made me realize that he is watching what we do as adults and how much I need to have this childlike faith. Lori, he was so into praying and talking to God that it brought tears to my eyes. I was just so overwhelmed that he was into talking to God,and it challenged me to not care about who is watching me and to just put my whole heart into talking and praising God. He listens so well and loves to answer questions when we ask them!

I also wanted to tell you how good of a job you are doing with raising your kids. I can't even imagine how hard it can get be sometimes, but you are doing a great job and I hope that one day when I have kids, that my kids will love Jesus as much as Isaac does. It challenged me more than you know! I love you and your kids. It's hard some days because you never know if they are really getting what you are saying, but Isaac loves to answer questions and is so attentive!
