April 10 | Seek the Good

Toni reminds us why we celebrate Easter! This devotional was created for Awesome Adventure Children’s Ministry but reminds kids from 1 to 100 the significance of the sacrifice that Jesus made for us all.

One family with teenage boys took this time to encourage creativity through cooking. Each child had the opportunity to cook dinner for the whole family & read below how it impacted their week! 

We (all) loved doing it. I enjoyed seeing their different personalities become so evident in their meal prep and execution. Some more methodical and following the recipe thoroughly, some a little less concerned about exact measurements or clean countertops. All the meals were DELICIOUS, and everyone was complimentary of each other. 

We had a great time sitting down at the table together to eat each meal and reminiscing about the days we used to have more time to sit down to meals together. We were also able to make the most of that time of togetherness to talk through some of the disappointment in this season as well as the ways we were able to see God at work. Quarantine in the midst of COVID-19 has definitely had its challenge, and at times, we have been sad about the things we are missing out on. so, adding some creativity to what could easily be the “same ol’ routine” has added a little color and flavor to our bland diet of repetition and has allowed us to savor the gift of togetherness.

p.s. Send us your stories of how you see friends seeking the good for the glory of Christ at hello@westshorefree.org. We would love to share these stories to encourage and inspire others!
