LA News -- November 27

From the Founder

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. It's a great time to reflect on all we should be grateful for and a great opportunity to recognize the blessing we have in the family God has given us. Families are meant to love and serve God together. Families were designed to follow God together. Life should include families that worship together, pray together, talk about the Bible together, attend church together, and encourage one another to live Christ-centered lives.

When running a race, you often see runners pace themselves and really turn on the speed for the final leg. There's something to be said for finishing strong. As we enter the last month of 2023, I want to encourage all of our families to finish strong spiritually. Take time to sit down as a family and talk about what it would look like to truly please and serve God together for the remainder of this year! Finish strong, friends!
