I HAD A DREAM...


I had a dream…
and it didn’t involve losing babies.
I had a dream…
and it didn’t involve special needs.
I had a dream…
and it didn’t involve pain and grieving.
I had a dream…
but it wasn’t God’s best for me.

I grieved lost dreams…
and begged God to give me new ones.
I grieved lost dreams…
and was left to wait and see.
I grieved lost dreams…
and the pain was suffocating.
I grieved lost dreams…
and I wondered if God had forgotten me.

I have new dreams…
and my children helped to shape them.
I have new dreams…
because special needs changed me.
I have new dreams…
because the pain and hard finally broke me.
I have new dreams…
and it’s because of God’s love and pursuit of me.

I don’t know what you are walking through today but please know that God loves and adores you.  He is absolutely crazy about you!  If your life and circumstances have forced you to grieve lost dreams, I am so very sorry.  But God.  He is so good and He is so faithful.  Ask Him to breathe new dreams into your heart and you will be amazed at what He can do with your broken dreams and your fragile heart.  

"I say to you today, my friends,
that in spite of the difficulties and frustrations of the moment,
I still have a dream."
-Martin Luther King Jr

{New Wednesday PM Study} HOW WE LOVE OUR KIDS


If you are a parent or plan to be one someday, this class is for you!
If you are an Adoption/Foster Care family, you will find this class super helpful!
If you are struggling with a difficult child or hard season of parenting, please join us!

How We Love Our Kids is a new study Keith and I are teaching on Wednesday evenings.  We had a great turnout tonight and have several more people interested in joining us.  Because of that, we decided to do an Introduction night tonight and will start Session 1 next week, January 18th.  The class will run 9 weeks ending on March 15th.

The class is held in the Bookstore at Cross Church Springdale and is free of charge.

If you need childcare, we have a Midweek program for kids that includes Music and/or AWANA.  There is a one time charge of $12.50 per child for AWANA, but if finances are an issue, we can help you.
