Fruit, Fruit and More Fruit

We finished a series on the Fruit of the Spirit. It was a lot of fun. We recycled an old song we did years ago that taught the kids the list.  To get the actual lessons into their heads, we did some of my favorite videos so far. You can check out our youtube channel […]

On Sunday morning, we led a family Sunday at ICL, the International Church of Leiden.  It was so great […]
