This month we go back in time…to visit some childhood favorites. After all, September is my birthday month!
One of my favorite songs growing up was “His Name is Wonderful.” Alas, I tried to play it last Sunday night on the church piano but because my mother let me quit piano lessons after two years, it sounded more like the final round of Name That Tune. (Thanks, Mom. I think I’m the only pastor’s wife in the South who can’t play the piano!)
My grandmother loved listening to her gospel 8-tracks in her car and I remember many men’s quartets wafting through the speakers in that Oldsmobile. The Imperials were one of those groups. (If you don’t know what an 8-track is, google it or ask your parents!)
My book pick is a NEW book based on an OLD favorite! I loved the stories of Brother and Sister Bear by Stan and Jan Berenstain growing up. The Berenstain Bears have entertained and guided children for generations and now Mike Berenstain has created a devotional based on the beloved characters his parents created.
Find it on Amazon or in your local bookstore.
For my featured movie, I chose a movie from my kids’ school days. Dale and I were both teaching at Grace Christian School and because it was a K-12 school, we had all four of the kids with us. That was a special year and one I will always remember fondly. We had a schoolwide movie showing that year of “Facing the Giants”, a movie that had football (for the boys), relationships (for the girls), and an inspirational message (for everyone)! It was a great movie and if you missed it, watch it now!!
I hope you enjoy September’s picks!!
