"Sometimes while I'm talking to God, He'll show me something about myself in such a way that I have to laugh at my own humanity and how funny I must look to Him." - Donna

Update and New Columns!

Hello! My husband and I are back and refreshed from our trip to Branson, Missouri. We saw Yakov Smirnoff and laughed a lot, heard great singing, and ate way too much good food.

The highlight of our trip was a visit to the headquarters of the Assemblies of God in Springfield, Missouri. We met with Thomas Trask, the General Superintendent of the A/G. What an honor it was to pray with him, and then have him pray for us. We also stopped by Global University, and I got to see where I'm attending school. And I got my grade back in New Testament Lit - a 90%. So these past few days have been full of activity and wonderful blessings.

I have a new column up on The Dabbling Mum - Good for Something.

"There are few things worse than hearing a parent tell a child, “You’re good for nothing.” Now I have to admit when children laze around the house offering up excuses for not doing homework or a chore, holding back the tongue does present a challenge."

Donna, it's so refreshing to read that children ARE the church, rather than the future church. It makes sense that, if they minister in their growing-up years, they'll be all practiced up for ministering as adults. Thanks for your very practical suggestions for teaching that fact to the little ones.

I toured the A/G headquarters years ago after I graduated high school and was checking into colleges. I did not get to meet Thomas Trask, but it was well worth the trip. We love Branson as well. It is one of my favorite vacation spots, because it seems more relaxed and geared for a slower paced vacation.

Ellen, thanks for reading. My thoughts exactly. Teach the children that ministry is a way of life, not delegated to 'the clergy.'
