We are gearing up for a series called, "One Month To Live," at the end of next month. I'm pretty excited about the effect that I believe it will have on our church family and on those who will be visiting during that time. As I've been thinking about the series, I've had some interesting things happen this week. First, I was talking with my 8 year old daughter about an American Girl book that she borrowed from a friend and was reading. The book teaches girls about their developmental stages during the pre-teen years. My daughter was explaining things to me that we did not even want to think about discussing with her yet. My wife and I are still shell-shocked. The only period that I want my daughter learning about is the one that goes at the end of a sentence! Time flies, I was rocking her to sleep in my arms just yesterday and now she's learning about growing up. The second memorable event that happened this week is that I had the chance to sit down with a very nice lady that was told just days ago that she has one month to live. She was diagnosed with cancer and we are believing God for a miracle for her. Whether it's at the beginning of your life or near the end, it seems like life goes so fast. It challenged me to live with more intentionality and to ask myself, "time flies, do you know where yours is going?"

Since that time, God has been gracious to our church as we have witnessed hundreds of people make decisions to follow Jesus, dozens more baptized and powerful ministry occur in environments geared toward children, youth, young adults, married couples and people from all walks of life. This past year was an exciting year of INCREASE for Freedom Life. We expanded the reach of our church by adding a
