Christian Youth Group

Published May 7, 2018 by lynn k scott

Last night I attended a parents’ forum for the Christian youth group my daughter goes to.  While, we don’t attend the church the group is held at, all are welcome. Most of the parents know each other from church, but several introduced themselves to the “newbie” (aka me).

I enjoyed hearing about what my daughter and the other kids were learning about.  There was a discussion on how we can communicate with our children and keep them in the faith.  I even learned about a Bible app that can connect us, but also we can pick topics to read and discuss.  I was excited!  I now what we will be using for our Bible study next year in our homeschool.  My daughter knew of the app, but chose not to tell me as she knew I would use it for our school.

Our forum ended right when they were doing the evening meal (they feed the kids dinner each week).  It was nice to sit back and watch my daughter and her friends chatting, while eating together.  I was also able to observe other kids and their parents.

We listened to the weekly message and then one of the leaders and three of the students played and sang worship songs (that anyone could join in on).

I take pride in being actively involved in my tween’s life.  I have access to her email, review her phone regularly, am on her Bible app, and her Instagram account (set up to show off her artwork).  I monitor what little social media I allow her to have.  She knows this and it’s not an issue.  I am proud I know the parents and kids she hangs around with.  I know they are positive influences and I don’t need to worry when she is around them.

The youth group is a weekly, two-hour blessing that I am grateful my daughter can be a part of.  That is her time with other kids who follow Christ.  Such a positive, safe and wonderful place for tweens and teens to get together.

“Bleed The Same”

Published May 6, 2018 by lynn k scott

It’s Sunday morning and I have another song to share.

Today’s selection is “Bleed the Same” by Mandisa.  I have mentioned she and Toby Mac have collaborated on several songs and this happens to be another great outcome of their work together.

“Bleed The Same” has a great message.  It’s time to start listening to some great words of advice.

“Feel It”

Published May 5, 2018 by lynn k scott

Today’s music video is, “Feel It”, by Toby Mac.

Ok, as I have mentioned, I’m slightly obsessed with his music lately.  In part, the music speaks to me on so many levels.  His songs make me bop my head (and occasionally chair dance).  It’s hard not to get wrapped up in the positive vibes and the different beats he uses.

“Broken Things”

Published May 4, 2018 by lynn k scott

Today’s musical selection is, “Broken Things” by Matthew West.

When I first heard this song, it took my breath away.  He could have written this song about me.  I am broken on so many levels.  While, I do what I can, I always feel like I am feeling short.  Feeling like I’m not good enough.  That my past has caught up with me.

This song renewed my hope and my faith.  It’s ok to be broken.  It’s ok to accept that you are; there’s still a seat at His table for you.

“Good Morning”

Published May 3, 2018 by lynn k scott

I mentioned on a previous post that I would be sharing more music that I listen to.  While I primarily listen to contemporary Christian music, don’t let that stop you from watching the videos.

Today, I’m sharing Good Morning by Mandisa.  What I didn’t realize, is that Toby Mac and Mandisa have collaborated on quite a few songs and they compliment each other very well.  As I have become a huge Toby Mac fan recently, only right to share (an older) video of the two of them.

One thing that stood out to me about this song, besides how upbeat it is, watch both singers and how happy they both are.  They obviously love what they are doing and it shows.

So enjoy the song/video and have a wonderful day!

“Lights Shine Bright”

Published April 30, 2018 by lynn k scott

I know this music isn’t super new, but to me it is.  I’m having fun discovering new, contemporary, Christian music.  I was “introduced” to Toby Mac when my daughter attended a Christian school.

Growing up in the United Methodist Church, we sung the typical hymns.  It wasn’t until my daughter attended the school was I introduced to some amazing Christian songs.  I recently stumbled upon “Lights Shine Bright“, by Toby Mac.  This song has such an uplifting beat and a great message.  I have added meeting Toby Mac to my bucket list.  Gotta have dreams; right?

I admit, I’m currently “song obsessing” on “Lights Shine Bright”; so much so my daughter has asked me to pick another song to listen to.  NOPE!  LOL

Music has affected every aspect of my life.  It holds my memories, controls my moods, reminds me of those who care about me and reaffirms my faith.  From Rock ‘n Roll, to Country, to R&B to Christian, music keeps me grounded.

Lately, I primarily listen to Christian music and I love it.  There are so many artists that share their gift of music.  I plan on sharing more of the (Christian) songs that I am currently enjoying.

IF Table

Published April 22, 2018 by lynn k scott

Yesterday, I attended my first IF Table. It’s a small group meeting through church. A friend actually invited me to go with her. I don’t attend her church, but it’s nice to get together with other women of faith. I wasn’t sure what I was getting into, but I wanted to see my friend and figured this couldn’t hurt.

The IF Table has some cards with questions on them. They provide discussion opportunities for those who attend. While, this group was new to me, the concept wasn’t; as I attend a small group at my church and we have a similar setup.

While I didn’t share, and actually broke down into tears at one point, it was a really nice time. I listened to the other women and their responses, which surprisingly, provided comfort.

The group meets once a month. Depending on my work schedule, I’d like to attend again. In May, I will be working seven days a week, as I was able to pick up a part-time job. I won’t be working both jobs forever, but as donations are down to a trickle, I need the extra income. So, until I have been “cured” of cancer or it kills me, I’ll be busy instead of idle. I need this second job to help keep me busy and focused.

I encourage you to step out of your comfort zone and if you’re invited out or you feel like exploring, please join a small group. The small groups allow you to connect and grow in your faith.

I hope everyone has a blessed week.
