So now I'm a mom and every summer I seek out VBS' for Ethan to attend. I am such an advocate for VBS because it was the only time I went to church as a kid until I was too old and then I started to volunteer and became more involved with our church which led me into going into the youth group.

This year, we live where the pickin's are scarce. There are a few churches offering VBS but they are churches we don't attend or at least our morals don't line up. I have learned, kind of the hard way, that just because a church claims to be Christian, some pick and choose what parts of the Bible they want to follow and what parts they say are obsolete. I'm just sayin'...
