The Schoolyard of Faith
Our topic today is, The Schoolyard of Faith. Some of us were privileged to grow-up in a Christian home and receive a great foundation for our walk of faith. In 2019 the organization, Ministry-to-children conducted a survey to answer the question, “How do Kids come to Christ?” According to their findings, nearly 50 percent of adult Christians found Jesus while still living at home, and their parents had the greatest influence on their Christian faith. It’s true, the schoolyard of faith is the home. A place designed by God to equip the next generation with godly principles to build their life upon. Our guests today are Tim and Kristin Overman. After dealing with infertility for seven years, God blessed them with biological children—five of them—five boys all under the age of 11. They are homeschoolers, and active leaders in their local church. Kristin is a stay-at-home mom and runs the Weekday Preschool Ministry at their church. They both are entrepreneurs at heart. Kristin started Abundant Days Education to support families with educational resources, and Tim has a fitness business.

What is ordinary? We are all special in God’s eye and created with a unique purpose that only you can fill. Being an ordinary person fits all of us, but God uses regular people to accomplish His will. With a quick read of Hebrews 11, we see many ordinary (regular people) people listed as heroes of the faith. These were regular people willing to let God use them to change their world. So, what about you? Have you ever dreamed how God could work through you? How your life and legacy could make an eternal difference in this world?

Giving Honor: The Legacy Hall of Fame
Leviticus 19:32 says, “Stand up in the presence of the aged, show respect for the elderly, and revere your God.”Why is that important? Because faithfulness is important. We should give honor to those who have been faithful before us. Think about this, someone was faithful to establish your church. Someone was faithful to present the Gospel to you. Someone has been faithful to teach you the ways of God. For all of us, somebody paved the way for us. Our guest today is Michael Cook, Senior Pastor at Oakland Heights Baptist Church in Longview, Texas.

A Good Steward Plans
Our spiritual legacy has more to do with creating an estate plan than you might think, and a holistic view of stewardship includes our estate plan.Unfortunately, the story that you are about to hear is all too often true. Rosie and Jose were married thirty-seven years when Jose died unexpectedly. Rosie was shocked by Jose’s death, but she was devastated by the events of the next few weeks. Like most Americans, Jose died without a valid will. Regrettably, Rosie lost control of everything and the state laws dictated what happen next.Ken Roney is an attorney and President of the Church of the Nazarene Foundation.

Redefining our Legacy: Investing in the next Generation
Let’s face it. Life happens way too quickly, and it passes us by almost overnight. Each time we turn around our children have changed. From diapers to teenage drivers before we know it. Life happens. But don’t just let it happen. With a little intentionality the memories we build and the values we pass along can make a difference for those who follow in our footsteps. Our legacy is too important not to invest in the future generations of our family. The Godly example you give your family today will make it easier for your grandchildren to follow you in their walk with Christ.

Blessed Beyond Measure--Stewardship God's Ownership
Our topic today is Blessed Beyond Measure. According to Vocabulary.com, If you say you've been blessed, you feel lucky to have something: health, love, fame, fortune, talent, etc. That’s it—lucky?

What's so Important About my Legacy?
What make a strong legacy? Money, fame, happiness? Our true legacy is intangible. It is more about our value system and the memories we build than money. We focus on tangible items because we can see and feel them. Houses, cars, and bank accounts. But the intangible may be worth far more to our family.Dave Davies is a Gift Planning Advisor with the Wycliffe Foundation, a ministry arm of Wycliffe Bible Translators.
