She probably knows more about this stunningly beautiful, redeemed, humble, servant of the Lord...Mary of Magdala... than many kids her age. Some might not even know what the word "prostitution" means.
Because she hasn't grown up attending Children's Sunday School classes or participating in AWANA...she's a bit out of the loop as far as the more obvious / "age appropriate" Bible Stories are concerned. What? churched her entire life and she doesn't know this or that? Yeah........no.......
Maybe we have failed her (and our other children as well) in that area...Bradley and I. I am sure we have to a certain degree.
Still we've been led how we've been led in the place where we were ...during the season we were there...and feel as if it has been good and correct for our family.
Pray for Zion as she begins a new adventure. Recently she began attending a Sunday School class and soon she will try AWANA. To say she feels like a fish out of water is an understatement. She is learning to navigate the Christian Church Culture amongst a group of peers her own age. She has had much home-schooling co-op experience in this area...but almost none in regards to "church" settings.
Also...Galilee and Jemima will have their first high school group experience.
We'll see how it goes.
