hard to believe...

...but it's true, TRU curriculum has officially been launched. Michelle presented it at CPC (children's pastors' conference) in Nashville. The response was incredible, and we are thrilled to see the excitement people have about the philosophy without even seeing a whole lot of the product. If you want to check it out, click here. Tru is something that I could talk about forever. I have yet to perfect the art of describing it in less than 20 minutes, but I'm working on it! Here are a few pieces of the philosophy straight off the website ::

"Through the process of spiritual formation, we desire children to open their hearts to God, learn to discern His voice, have a desire to obey Him, an
d to do so in the power that the Holy Spirit offers to each believer."

"God has given parents the incredible responsibility of impressing a love for God on the hearts of their children (Deut. 6:5–7). These impressions best occur as a natural overflow from the lives of parents who are seeking to love the Lord with all their hearts, souls, and strength."

"As we teach the Bible in church and at home, we want to be true to content and context. We take a historical-literal approach to Bible interpretation; we investigate what Scripture meant to its original audience and draw out the corresponding biblical truth principle for application. Additionally, because we propose that the mind learns differently from the soul, our approach to Scripture is not only informational (analytical, linear, mastering the text—for the mind) but also formational (receptive, in-depth, letting the text master you—for the soul)."

We've seen transformation in our kids, parents, volunteers and staff. We watch God show up week after week and yet for some dumb reason, we are always surprised. I can't wait to see what God is going to do other in kids, parents, volunteers and church staffs!

Oh, and if you want to see what I specifically work on, check out Tru Wonder on the site...it looks like this ::
