Seventeen years ago, as soon to be first time parents, my husband and I spent a lot of time thinking about what family life was going to look like with our first baby. A church home was a key part of our upbringing so before our baby arrived we needed to make sure we had a church home for our new arrival. Our now 17-year-old daughter motivated us to return to our faith and become members of All Saints.Similarly, before our daughter started Sunday School, I started volunteering with the program. As the years passed, I found sharing my faith with our youngest members was where I was meant to be. Fifteen years have passed since my first Sunday School class and I am preparing to step down as Sunday School coordinator this month. I hope that I have played a small part in the growing faith of our youngest members but even if I have not, I know they have played a significant part in mine. Prayer Heavenly Father, You’re our ultimate source of strength. When we’re weak, You’re strong. You lift us up when we’re down. You renew our strength, and we soar on wings like eagles. Thank You, God, for always raising us up with Your mighty hands. In our times of trials and troubles, God, we look to You. Life can hand us many different challenges that we cannot face on our own. But with You, O God, nothing is impossible. You grant us the endurance to overcome any obstacle that may come our way. You’re our strength when we’re weak, God. And we’re always grateful when You manifest Your power through our lives. All these we pray in Your Name, Amen.
