Shine Like Stars

Shine like stars in the universe as we hold out the Word of life (Phil. 2:15)
We're not trying to be rock stars but just shed some light on a sad and lonely world. Stay tuned for how God works through weak and tired, sometimes really cranky vessels.

I love this Bible

I really love reading this storybook Bible with my kids.  I think that every person should own one whether you have children or not.  Every story points back to the awesomeness of Christ and how He really "is all and in all."

Here's a little snippet from the beginning of the book.  Sally (yes, I'm on a first name biases with her because we've read the book so many times) is talking about how some people think that the Bible is a book about rule or heroes....

"No, the Bible isn't a book of rules, or a book of heroes.  The Bible is most of all a Story.  It's an adventure story about a young Hero who comes from a far country to win back his lost treasure.  It's a love story about a brave Prince who leaves his palace, his throne -everything- to rescue the one He loves.  It's like the most wonderful of fairy tales that has come true in real life!
You see, the best thing about this Story is - it's true.
There are lots of stories in the Bible, but all the stories are telling one Big Story.  The Story of how God loves his children and comes to rescue them."

I don't know where you are at with the Bible, what your past experience has been when reading it, but I encourage you to read it with the above idea in mind.  It's really changed my life to read it this way.


  1. I often tear-up reading this to our kids. It is so well-written. We love it too!

  2. We love this bible as well. I can't tell you how many things I have learned reading it with my kids :)

  3. We love it too! Got it for Christmas and are reading it through for the second time. And, Marian (almost 9) loves it just as much as Tobin (4 years).

  4. We love it too! We read it at bedtime every husband and I love it as much as Hannah does :)
    It's been fun to look around your blog a little have been blessed with a beautiful family. Can't wait to see what God has in store for you! :)
