My friend Jenny should be doing the class too since Master's College is not offering it this semester. It'll be fun to get to know her better too! We will probably drive down together since our husbands carpool together in the mornings.
I am taking:
Methods of Biblical Counseling
Theology of Biblical Counseling
Please pray for us! The next few weeks should be really busy and I won't have much time to post, but will try my best!

Wow. Never experienced anything quite like this before! I take my hat off to the people who are part of this ministry week in and week out, because Andrew and I helped with the 0-18 month Nursery Room during one of the services and was completely exhausted afterwards! at least 20 tiny kids were in the room, some of whom could hardly sit up yet, and most not too sure why they can't get all the attention from you! But it was a great opportunity to see how Grace handles this ministry and we learned a lot from it! It is such an important ministry to ensure that parents are fed from the Word regularly, because they must be constantly refreshed by the Truth in order to raise up children in the Lord.
But I'll take a break for a while and maybe pick an older age group next time!
