This isn’t your typical kid, y’all - and I have to share what happened. We were having lunch with friends in the city (we live in a very rural area), they have an older boy that my kid adores. We don’t get to see them often, so we were chatting over lunch and my ears picked up the conversation at the kids side of the table.

About how God isn’t real.

I sat frozen, pretending to listen to my friends before me, holding my breath, and worried where this conversation would lead and how I would handle it. There were 5 children at the end of the table and mine was the youngest — the baby. For almost an hour, I sat, speechless, eavesdropping on this group as my baby, spoke to them of Jesus and who He is. He never once looked to me, he had answers for everything. Explaining how Jesus died on the cross for them too. As we were leaving, my 9 year old hugs his friend and tells him if he ever has any more questions, he can ask him. ~Wendy

Parents face tough but timely conversations with children in discussing Uvalde mass shooting 05/26/2022

Parents face tough but timely conversations with children in discussing Uvalde mass shooting

We are all heartbroken over Uvalde and struggling to make sense of it. We know it can be difficult to navigate how to best help your kids through this tragedy. Dr. Smalley spoke to KRHD 25 News yesterday discussing how to handle this conversation.

Parents face tough but timely conversations with children in discussing Uvalde mass shooting How do we talk about the horror, shock, or sorrow from events like the mass shooting at the elementary school in Uvalde?


Drop the facts! Validate the fear button!
The better you become at validating the fear button that has been pushed, the more your spouse will feel heard. Validating means that you recognize that your actions, words, behaviors, or choices pushed a fear button. Speak to the fear button feelings, Hey, I am so sorry. I see that (event XYZ) made you feel (hurt, feeling controlled, defective, unworthy, rejected, abandoned, lonely, disrespected....,) Don't make assumptions about their feelings. Ask them, what fear button did I push? I see you're hurting. I will work hard on not doing that again. I am so sorry I made you feel that way.

In the midst of chaos, when you have no idea what to do to help your situation, breathe and know that you are a child of God and He is with you. Gather yourself, get control of your emotions and think about how your actions and reactions could be better or healthier. The only change you have control over is you. Give the rest to God.

Jesus SAT with sinners, He didn't SIN with them.

I LOVE this! I struggle with this sometimes and this simple sentence helps me so much. Thank you to whomever first posted this on Facebook.


A local tragedy has sparked a movement in a small Texas town when a rodeo accident took the life of a little cowboy named Legend. His short life and his families devotion to God in the midst of their pain, is encouraging people to love better, share Jesus, and live like a Legend. This is an excerpt from their page A True Legend *Posting with permission*

On Sunday, Oct 3, God called home the sweetest and most beautiful angel to ever walk the earth. Some are asking why, some are viewing it as a tragedy, but Kelly and I saw why and are still seeing why. Ours sons accident is not a tragedy. When Legend’s accident happened, I ran to him. For the first time in my nursing career I was helpless. For a split second, Satan tried to put fear in my heart. As I hit my knees and started crying out to God, I was rebuking Satan in Jesus name. I begged God not to take my son. I scream and yelled from the roof tops, proclaiming that God is our ultimate healer, way maker, miracle worker. As I was in the midst of begging God, my face was in the arena dirt, A peace flowed through my heart. I didn’t understand it because why was my heart calmed during this time? Words started flowing from my mouth that I was not saying. “Thy Will Be Done, Thy Will Be Done, Thy Will be done.” Those were the only words I could say. I cried out to God begging him to save my son because Legend was going to be a preacher and lead thousands to Christ. As we loaded Legend into the ambulance, I looked at his sweet little body and the amazing people trying to save his life, I kept proclaiming Gods goodness, I kept proclaiming “Thy Will Be Done.” As I kept hearing the words Asystole, I prayed that God would use my baby for the greater good of HIM. As the doctor came out to tell Kelly and I that Legend was in Heaven, the words flowed from my mouth, “Thy Will Be Done On Earth OR In Heaven.” I thanked God that my son didn’t suffer like his Son did. On my knees in that hospital, I surrendered my whole life and soul to God. Chains were broken from my heart, anger and grudges were released, bondages were gone.
As we were planning Legend’s celebration of life, we told Roy at Carroway that we were having church. A revival was and is stirring and God told me that whether Legend was on earth OR in Heaven, thousand were coming to Christ. There wasn’t a place in town that we could think of that would accommodate thousands or have good acoustics for worship. Then bingo, some one suggested the Pentecostal Campground Tabernacle. What a perfect and anointed place. It could not have been more perfect and in true Legend fashion, he still shined from the Heavens. As of yesterday, 30 THOUSAND people had watched his service. 30 THOUSAND people heard about the goodness of our God. But that’s not it, nations have heard his story. I always knew Legend was anointed with Gods greatness but I just didn’t realize how much. It’s not over, a revival is coming. Hell is trembling.
If God has to use our son to lead thousands to Christ, one to Christ, 10 to Christ, then our family has not been robbed of our sweet Legend. I only wish that I could take credit for his faith, but from now on, I promise to spread Gods word.
If you don’t know Christ and you can’t say that if you died tomorrow that you would go to Heaven or hell, reach out to me, reach out to someone. Let’s make Heaven crowded.
The days to come are going to be our hardest, be we remain faithful to HIS word, we will continue to praise HIM in every storm that comes our way.
Again, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for loving us and praying for us, please don’t stop. 💙
Love your neighbor as you love yourself,
~Raegan, Kelly & Mavy Ray Williamson
