A small child had recently been baptized. One of her classmates asked her what it was like to be a Christian. She was caught off guard and didn't know how to answer when she looked up and saw a jack-o-lantern on the desk. She answered. "It's like being a pumpkin."
Her classmate asked her to explain that!
"Well, God picks you from the patch and brings you in and washes all the dirt on the outside that you got from being around all the other pumpkins. Then he cuts off the top and takes all the yucky stuff out from inside. He removes the seeds of doubt, hate, greed, and all those other bad things. Then he carves you a new smiley face and puts his light inside of you to shine for all to see! It is our choice to either stay outside and rot on the vine or come inside and be something new and bright!"
Welcome! I'm Jen, the mother of 3 beautiful blessings! My little man- age 3 years, Peanut-age 8, and Sunshine- age 10. Celebrated 17 years of marriage this past year- Wow!

This site is dedicated to one of Abby's first teachers. God uses her daily to touch the lives of children (her Shining Stars). She touches the lives of grownups, too. She taught me to pray not only for the big things in my children's lives, but also for their daily boo boos! We are very blessed to have her in our lives!
