Happy Maycember!

I just saw a funny post the other day about May being called Maycember, for those of us with school aged kids, a month as busy as December but without the lights.

And just like any other time when life gets hectic, there come the feelings of anxiety, stress, impatience, exhaustion … I could go on and on. And we might not be as focused on keeping our relationship with Jesus a priority because life takes over. But especially during these times, it’s ever more important to nurture and pay attention to our faith as it can give us strength, courage, determination and positivity to get through these days. Because God sees us all and always there to help us when it is needed the most.

As we are also nearing to the end of our Lifegroup sessions, I wanted to express how much it means to our family and how it has helped me becoming a better mother and for the kids something to look forward to every week.

Lifegroup it’s not just about diving deeper into last week’s sermon for us. Yes, it is important, but I have gained much more; a new family, a new group of friends, where we can share everything in a safe environment. And just so happens, everyone in our group has similar age kids so we share lot of the parenting struggles as well. An added bonus is that the kids all get to hang out while we study what the message means for our lives and the challenges we faced that week.

I wasn’t always that active and ready to share as I am these days. In fact, the whole concept of joining a group session of any kind made me very uncomfortable. But as I got to know this wonderful group of people and we opened up about even the hardest topics, we became friends, we became family. And it made the sermons so much more meaningful, it made me already think of the application questions and how I can relate the message to my life.

I just wanted to share this in case there are any of you currently facing roadblocks, challenges. Just know that there are always people you can reach out to, who would listen and would love to support you. And with this video hoping to make you smile and know that you are not alone!

Blessings and have a wonderful weekend!

It's a MAYcember (the month as busy as December but without the lights) and it deserves its own music medley.

I saw this video the other day—so funny! And I echo all this about LifeGroups—they were life-changing for us! So blessed to have our circle of friendship, support and accountability!

New series: AUTHENTIC JESUS starts Sunday!
In an age when opinions fly at us unrestrained, John gives us the unchanging gift of truth. When science and philosophy and your social circles say you can’t really know God, John says, yes you can. Dear child, he writes, I’ve touched Him. Where we’ve not only settled for living in the gray, but have formed our identity in it, John points us to light and dark – you’re walking in one or the other. And perhaps most importantly, at a time when the word love means just about anything under the sun, and therefore almost nothing, John tells us “this is what loves is…” And then he shows us the authentic Jesus.
