It’s officially November…..yeah! TBS has now officially shifted to Winter Dress Code. Just an FYI (mostly an announcement to Weston Shaeffer). Only a few short weeks till we see Thanksgiving Break. I know that there are several that will be taking advantage of the hunting season as well. Good luck – I will vicariously hunt through all of you that actually see deer! Travel this month also picks up as there are many that go out of town to visit family. Yes all of this is exciting for sure.
As many of you all know Amber and I have a heart to see our school ministry succeed beyond the classroom. We look at your kids and our own and try to do what is best for them. Recently, we were again burdened to make sure that our marriage and our personal lives are kept with regular maintenance. In order to do this we have to constantly stop and communicate on many levels to ensure that things are properly running. As we have done this we have found unity and growth. This is not easy because there are some moments when one has to do more than replace a “flat tire” if you know what I mean. There are some things that are on the inside of the engine that need attention. It takes time to evaluate and it takes time to tear down to see the actual problem. It takes time to rebuild as well! The journey of inward change is liberating and challenging. This is not for individuals that are specifically having trouble nor is this for individuals who always seem to have it together. Anybody is encouraged to study and fellowship in this way. The study is set up for a separated group and that is what we will follow. There will only be a short intro time together before groups split to their own studies.
We have found a couple of studies that we would like to share with you concerning this opportunities.
Ladies Discussion / Study Group: Power of a Praying Wife (Stormie Omartian)
Mens Discussion / Study Group: Power of a Praying Husband (Stormie OMartian)
If you have any interest in either of these studies we would love to minister to your family in this way. Once a month to work on this vital part of your heart is not asking that much is it? This is open to any school / Church family. There will be others from the community invited as well. There are 10 total sessions and there will be a book fee for all those who want to be involved. Personal study and group discussion will be part of each group. Each participant will read the required chapter and will be ready to discuss chapter objective and talking points with other participants.
