Children’s Rest Page
The purpose of this page is to bring peace to children. How can we help them de-stress? How can we foster disciplines of grace and rest in their lives, avoiding the pitfalls of culture and societal pressures? Your input is most welcome! Together we embark on this journey for one common goal – Peace for our kids, grandkids and children we serve.

Text or email me with how you are dealing with this quarantine and check out the book Homeplateadvantage on Amazon.
As it says in Ephesians 6:11, “Put on the full armor of God so you may stand firm against the schemes of the devil.” What does that mean? It means that in order to get thru your struggles you need to trust in the Lord. What does it look like to trust in the Lord? To put your faith and hope in Him, to believe with all your heart that He will work things out. He may not answer things exactly like you want but He will always answer your prayers.
What can you do during this time of quarantine and fear?
Some would say watch YouTube and play video games. I think resting with your family helps. The hope you need comes from the Lord.
This is a good time to develop your prayer muscles and ask God for help.
It’s a good time to help your mom/ dad around the house or make some great snacks.
(I’m eating Hummus – Greek style, with pretzels these days.)
Maybe you can even practice drawing. Here’s me fighting off COVID19.

I challenge you guys to fight COVID19 with me. By keeping up good hygiene (washing hands, sneezing in your elbow, etc.) and making sure your house is clean you can make a difference.
Email me your ideas and prayer requests at:
Also let me know if we can share your artwork or ideas on this page. We’re in this together!
Remember, “You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the One who is in you is greater than the One who is in the world. “1 John 4:4
I encourage you guys to listen to these songs that I like.
