This is an excellent article written by someone fed up with big church productions and rock bands. I happen to agree with a lot of what he says. Although not a deal breaker, I can only handle it in small doses. But having said that, attending one that has a band, but teaches the Bible, is preferable to one that doesn’t and tries to rewrite it. My preference for music does not dictate my church, God does. I just do it in smaller doses, like I said.
Outside of church, it’s rock and roll all of the way.

Me (to my youngest, Tessa): You want to watch a movie?

Tessa: No, I don’t want to watch a movie.

Me: Why not? We could find a movie to relax, kick back and fall asleep to.

Tessa: No, if I’m going to watch a movie, I want to watch a movie, not fall asleep to it.

Me: You know nothing about relaxing.

Being a mom is an amazing job, and such a gift that God has given me. Despite them not being born with an owners manual, I somehow stumbled through parenthood. Teaching and molding them was a privilege, and they taught me as well. Through the tough times, and the good times, they made me laugh, they made me cry, entertained me -ALWAYS. And although they’re all grown now, they’re still my babies, and I love them fiercely. Looking back, the funny thing is, no owners manual was needed, it just came naturally. Thank you God for making me a mom.
