We had an awesome time at VBS at our church last week, learning about God through activities, songs & praying with our friends! On the first day, Emily came home and said, “I learned a lot of good stuffs about God today and a bad king who made all the baby boys dead." A minute later, she looked at Ben and said, "Sorry Ben, I guess you get to be dead because you're a boy..." Mommy needed to explain a little more about the story of Moses, but I think she got it in the end!
On the second to last day, I took a big leap of faith and officially asked Jesus to forgive my sins and to live in my heart forever! Can you believe that He died on the cross so that MY sins could be forgiven!?!?! I thought it was pretty amazing of Him! There were over 400 kids at VBS this year, and I was one of 35 who decided to make a commitment to having a personal relationship with Jesus! Mommy & Daddy were so proud of me, and I couldn’t wait to tell them all about it, and how awesome it will be to go to heaven someday where the streets are made of GOLD! I started getting a little bit concerned and hope that everyone I love believes in Jesus and will get to go to heaven with me someday. Don’t be surprised if you get a call from me asking if you are going to be there someday with me! I hope to see you all there, and if you’re not sure, just ask me! I’ll tell you all about Him!
This was the book they sent home with me, so I could learn more about my big decision!
Check out my “mini lesson” I taught in our summer homeschool this morning!
