There's still time to participate in the 2015 Summer Challenge!
Sign up for the challenge at www.whitsend.org/summer for access to weekly verses to memorize, ideas for family fun and suggestions for service projects that allow a family to share their faith.
Additionally, anyone who signs up to participate in the Take the Plunge challenge will receive a free scene from the latest Adventures in Odyssey album, as well as a free story from the book Strange Journey Back.
The Take the Plunge challenge features:
Master Mind Monday - commit God's Word to memory
Ways to Play Wednesday - spend active time with your family
Faith Sharing Friday - share God's love with others
The Take the Plunge challenge helps families memorize at least five verses, engage in five activities together and share their faith with five people before the school doors swing open again.
Those who sign up will receive a plan with suggested verses to memorize, activity ideas (such as visiting a war memorial) and ways to witness (such as passing out popsicles at the park with an invitation to your church), making this challenge the perfect tool for parents who want summer to be a time of spiritual and social stimulation for their kids.

Spare time? What's that? You must mean the extra time I had before grandkids? LOL. ;-) Well, I used to love to garden and oil paint, but I've had to put those aside for now. I do have a reef tank aquarium in my office that I really enjoy maintaining. (2) What is your, just for fun, book?
You'll laugh at this, but anything by Ted Dekker is my go-to book for entertainment. I normally read historical romance, but Ted's books are scary, supernatural, Biblical, and page-turning. Love them! (3) During a chat what would your cup be filled to the brim with?
Coffee! (4) How do you best bring glory to God?
Well, hopefully, I do bring glory to God. It certainly is my desire to do so every day of my life. I would…
