KIDSfest kicked-off last night with record attendance. And it was such an honor to finally be a part of!

Normally during this time frame, Jennifer and I are off somewhere in the world, so we’re never around for New Life’s annual VBS week. But this year we wanted to stay home and support our kids, which means Pastor Leah Woodkirk also wrangled us into leading worship. In truth, it’s something Jennifer and I’ve wanted to do for years, and this time around it just worked. What fun! We even wrote a theme song to go with the all-original curriculum, SuperCity.

My hat is off to Leah and her staff for putting on a truly memorable and life-changeing event for our children. Now more than ever, as a father, I appreciate their hard work: Evangeline was at the kitchen table this morning memorizing scripture – using her iPhone to record my voice. That’s not cheating, is it? ch:
