I grew up in Germany and spent a few years as a missionary kid in Africa. I ended up at Moody Bible Institute where I met my husband and best friend. We have been married 17 years now and have 2 boys (10, 4) and 2 girls (13, 6). Grandma and Grandpa live with us as well as our four little guinea pigs (Zoe, Chloe, Cinnamon and Honey) and our Pitt/Australian Shepherd dog Lucy(Fur).
Christian counselor, author, and teacher Dr. Larry Crabb passed away on Feb. 28 at the age of 77. His ministry, Larger Story, said that he "can now testify to the unspeakable joy and unlimited goodness of God. It truly is well with his soul."
As you lead in children and family ministry, it's crucial to be self-aware and to keep asking yourself questions that will help you stay on course. We often talk about having an accountability partner and that is a great thing. But it's also just as important to keep yourself in check.
