Out of the Mouths of Babes-Reading the Bible

This nine year old, in one video, clarifies what many of us adults take YEARS to realize. Listen until the end...

"He called a little child to him, and placed the child among them. And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me." Matthew 18:2-5
Please don't hesitate to tell me of any prayer need. I would love to add your prayer requests to this list (which I try to put at the end of each post).

Prayer Requests:

*Rolando and Julia (Guatemala-It has been over five years.), AND Junior and Diamoh (Liberia) to be able to finally come home to their families and that these countries open to legitimate adoptions.
*Renae-For the continued transition of their sweet family. Their daughter joined their family this year!
*Daniel (Liberia) and Jeremiah (Taiwan)- for their continued health issues. God's blessings and Hand on them and their families.
*Our friend's (unnamed, God knows) foster son, his family, and all who will make or influence decisions on his behalf that God's will be done in every aspect of his life.
*Eliz and her family-Blessings of speed of process and safety for her five fragile sons with Down Syndrome as they wait to bring them home.
*Please pray for our friends (the Stokes family) and their adoption from China as they reach the last stages to bring home their newest blessing.

Personal Prayer Requests:

*We pray that God shows us our next child. We pray that financially things will fall into place to be able to adopt so that we will not have to wait on any funds (at least initially). We pray for health as we plan for the future. We pray for our future children, our current blessings, and our family...that they may be loved and prepared for another amazing blessing. Especially we pray that whatever happens, it is to God's glory and is HIS will.

*We also ask that you join us in prayer for wisdom and guidance (that we can bring God the most glory) in the career field. We're limited in what we can share, but feel pressed on to pray about both these prayer requests and God knows exactly what we're asking.

*Last, we ask that you pray protection against satan's barbs. Thank you.


  1. Wow! That young man is amazing. A lot of wisdom from such a little guy on why we should read the whole Bible--start to finish.

    Kat, I can't believe Rachel and Gabe have been home 6 months! Where did the time go?! And you are adopting again? So exciting! You guys humble me. I'll be praying for God's provision and direction as you seek His will in the next child for your family.

    Thanks for your friendship and support, past and present. I will certainly join you in praying for the requests that you mentioned. My heart is especially heavy for Rolando and Julia.

    Much Love,

  2. What an amazing little guy! Thanks for sharing this.


In the joy of following our Heavenly Father, we sometimes choose to proceed with a whisper, a verse, or a downright matter how we follow Him, the momentum that follows is like nothing we've ever experienced before.

Join the is a beautiful place to be. It's not always easy, but then the best things never are.
