    February 2017 "Snowflakes"

    A Note from Nancy...

    When our son Scott was 2, he was always busy with a variety of activities. This particular summer day, he took time out to run upstairs and tell me that it was raining downstairs! Indeed it was. Scott had pulled the sprinkler inside and then turned it on. Everything was soaked. Thankfully my mother was visiting, and before I could say or do anything, she reminded me that he was merely acting his age.

    I have thought about that a great deal over the past few weeks with sometimes violent demonstrations because the "wrong person" was elected president. These were not two-year-olds because two-year-olds would not behave as they did, but rather they were mostly teens and grown adults. Just for the record, the worldview that they were living out exemplified the description of a Postmodern person, also known as a Millennial or Postmodern. Sadly, they were living out a worldview that has no moral standards, no rules for violence or what anyone says or does. This group is also known as "Snowflakes" because their feelings get badly hurt when things don't go their way. Many of these adults were, as children, given whatever they wanted, awarded participation trophies and could participate in several after school activities that would disrupt everyone else. Rarely were they grateful and soon became a "me" centered group of entitled adults that is the most depressed and lost generation on this planet.

    As parents, it is critical that we can not only lead our children by the example of how we love God and love others even though they won something and we lost! Kim Kurtz, www.livingtolovehim.com, a friend of mine who is a writer and a mom, wrote about some things a parent can talk about with their children. One of the questions was "Who will I live for? Myself, for everyone around me, the person I love or will I live for God? Most kids and Postmoderns would answer "me" but as Kim said, "Nowhere in scripture does it say to love yourself. The greatest love of all is NOT inside of you. The greatest love of all is the love of God." We must model a life lived loving God and others if we expect our children to see a different way of living.

    Upcoming events for you and family.

    "...so that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes. Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love. (Ephesians 4:14-16)"

    Thank you so much.

    Blessings and much love!

    Nancy's November Newsletter

     Hello,   

    A Note from Nancy...

    Yes, Aslan is on the move...God is up to something!  God, in the midst of the worst of times, will always have the last word. Be encouraged!
     
    How could a country with millions of well qualified people that could lead America to be a nation, under God, with liberty and justice for all choose Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton?   
     
    When I look at our churches and our teens, I can see the erosion of faith and foundational moral principles. Christians lack the basic understanding of their God and faith, and courage to take a stand, the culture will win every time. We are at war for the hearts and minds of teens and their parents. If you need convincing, take a look at these stats from Barna, McDowell and Summit.
     
    The Church is in trouble: Only 2% of self identified Christians know how to defend their faith. Less than half believe that Jesus was sinless, the Bible is true and choosing what is right depends on the situation. The average church size of 75 people, lead 1 person to Jesus per year. 
     
    Not surprising, teens are no better off than the parents. Only 2-6% of Christian teens live out their faith, the majority do not believe that Jesus is God. They believe that all faiths are the same, that Jesus did not raise from the dead and that the Holy Spirit does not exist. Fall out for this: up to 80-90% will walk away from their faith by the time they graduate from college with FEW returning.
     
    THERE IS HOPE. To turn the tide, Christians have got to learn what and how to defend your faith in Jesus. We are here to help you become a champion culture changer. Please go on our site and order an "Unanswered: Smoke, Mirrors and God"bundle that you can receive in a few days. It is for family study or any small group that wants to learn about their faith and have their questions answered. When you receive it, you will be ready to use it. Play the 5 minute video and get going. People with no biblical training are diving in and loving it! Click here and order today. 
     
    There are some awesome things going on:
     
    How about showing The Chronicles of Narnia and watch it together with your family and maybe invite friends to join you? We suggest that after you watch the movie, you could discuss the areas in your lives where God is moving, where God needs to be more active and how to better live out your relationship with God.  To watch, click here!
     
    Sign up for tickets or to stream "America's Best Hope"..... http://americasbesthope.org/ 
     
    Join Mike Woods and the Dream Center Crossroads of America here in Indianapolis and serve http://www.indydreamcenter.com/outreaches.html 
     
    We will always be willing and ready to pray for and with you. We would love to help you with your situation and suggest ways to speak into your group that you would love to reach. Please let us know what we can do to help. Office: 317-844-0381
     
    Remember, the parents are the most powerful influence in the life of their children. They probably won't let you know but they are listening! Don't forget to Frame them often! Click here to learn framing!
