Favorite Bible passage:
“. . . We also exult in our tribulations, knowing that tribulation brings about perseverance; And perseverance, proven character; And proven character, hope. And hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out within our hearts, through the Holy Spirit who was given to us.” Romans 5:3-5
Favorite books (after the Bible):
Enduring Connections: Creating a Preschool and Children’s Ministry, Janice Haywood
Sacred Stories of Ordinary Families: Living the Faith in Daily Life, Diana Garland

The Hurried Child, David Elkind
