It Ain’t Your Mom’s VBS….It’s Mega Sports Camp!

I guess really I should say it’s not my VBS since now I am the Mom and this isn’t the VBS I grew up with. IT’S WAY BETTER!

Growing up VBS wasn’t all that grand. It was basically just Sunday School with crafts and snacks. Then a I got older being the Pastor’s Daughter I was given VBS task. Now I was allowed to help with a class one time. Just once because I got a little to contemporary for that world and was sent to the kitchen to cut apples

When we started attending the Church we do now and they started talking about this thing called Mega Sports Camp I was confused. I mean what were they talking about doing this VBS thing in a way were kids would actually have fun and learn about the WORD without being beat over the head??? Crazy talk right??? NOOOOO!!!! Awesome talk. Wait no I’m just going to say it…Awesomesauce talk. Ya I said awesomesauce.

I go to the right Church because they say my favorite word: Awesome.

My children have been to VBS at my Father’s Church and they have been to Mega Sports Camp twice. You ask all three of them and they will tell you “We LOVE our Church and Mega Sports Camps.”

I feel sad for the way things are in the religion I was raised in. To this day nothing has changed and they wonder why they are loosing their young people to the world. When the day came and I finally broke free I was called the anti christ by some because when I left others found their courage and left as well. I still have people email me from time to time saying how they wished they had the courage to leave but they can’t and how they wished they could find what I have found at The Connection Church.

I was in my late 20s before I finally found the courage to leave.


You lost me..What Do You Mean Move from Stress to Rest???

If there is one thing that the doctors have told me over and over again it’s that the stress is what will do me in the quickest. My stress levels are high enough to make up for a small army.

So naturally I am not a fan when I sit down at church and hear a lesson about stress.

Ya not a fan. I mean come on Pastor Trey I did not wear my boots today. You didn’t need to stomp so hard on my toes.

Oh wait..I guess he did.

The lesson was titled:

Moving From Stress to Rest

Hmmm….well figuring there seems to be no med that works for me I did listen pretty carefully.

Top Stressors in Life:

Relationship Problems, Financial Problems, Health Problems.

Ya Buddy those seem to be the three big ones for everyone if they are being honest.

Really all three of them go together perfectly when you have health problems like I do. I know my health has caused much stress on our finances and my relationships with more then just my husband.

For me out of the whole lesson it was those three that screamed the loudest to me. It was those three that for me are the most relevant in my life where stress is concerned.

My stress is out of control. I don’t know how to control it anymore. It keeps getting worse and in the end it will be what kills me the fastest.

I’ve heard Pastor Trey bring several lessons and out of them all this was the one that stomped my toes the hardest.

As we were driving home G asked about what the sermon was about. When I told him he says to me “Satan didn’t want you to hear that today Mom. That’s why your alarm didn’t go off.”

Probably so son. Probably so.
