Yes to the blessing of studying God’s Word.  Yes to the best thing…Jesus is Lord!

Our favorite thing about summer…VBS!  The boys and I look forward to it every year!  I have been teaching VBS since my oldest son was 3.  Let’s see?  We have been a part of Game Day Central…Outrigger Island…Boomerang Express…Saddle Ridge Ranch…Big Apple Adventure!  Even my three-year-old was looking forward to it this year, he kept asking…”Mommy, when are we going to Va Va VBS?”  

We look forward to finding out the theme each year!  The boys like to imagine what the music will be like and I start thinking about how I can decorate my room!  We are Vacation Bible School fanatics!  We begin listening to the music about a month before and continue listening to it until, well I will let you know when they tire of it :)

I love that our church offers such an exciting outreach to the children in our community every year.  Summer camps can be very expensive and VBS gives parents an affordable (FREE!) option to send their children to a place they can trust.  And while we got ‘em, we can get’ em!  So many children see God’s love first hand during the week of VBS and many come to know Christ, which is what we are all about!

How you gonna say yes to VBS?!

  1. Bible school holds a very special place in our hearts as well! Like you, it is a huge blessing to see and hear the Lord working in lives – both children and adults. And our Middle Girl was saved the week right after VBS, her heart softened by the songs, all she learned and the Lord’s gentle leading.

    You, my friend, have a special gift in this area! What a wonderful example you are!

  2. We did Saddle Ridge Ranch (wait, it takes longer to sing it. . . . .aa aaa aanch) last year, and this year we have Big Apple Adventure. I look forward to seeing your room. I have the preschoolers. So fun!

  3. YES, YES, YES to VBS!! Thanks for sharing!!!!
