Lessons for July 13-17th!


Is this season of uncertainty causing tensions to boil over in your life and family? Forgiveness can help! Read this entire post for more insight:

We all need forgiveness.
It’s the only possible way to walk through pain and be changed for the better.
Your children will be treated unfairly. They will be lied to. They will be betrayed. There is no question that someone will hurt your children someday in someway.
The question is how will they survive?
Choosing to forgive makes it possible for them to emerge on the other side with a heart that is whole.
If you want to invest in the future emotional health of your children … teach them to forgive.


Have you ever had a bad day? In our story today, someone has an EPIC bad day! But we learn from his shipwreck that knowing Jesus changes the way you see your problems.
