Christmas Lights and “Zip Ties”

By | church-in-yuma-arizona, Kids, Uncategorized, Womans | No Comments

tree 2013Hi!
I went to set up our Christmas tree the other day. It is a pre-lit tree and quite simple to assemble. I got it into place and plugged it in…….NOTHING HAPPENED!!!!! Where was the glow of the lights?? I checked all of the connections and tried again – still nothing.
It was at this moment that I knew there was a decision to make; do we try to re-light the tree (which meant cutting off each little tiny zip tie – of which there were several on every single branch) or do we simply get a new tree? After examining both avenues thoroughly, the decision was made in favor of a new tree.

The old tree was removed and the new one was purchased and then set into the older tree’s spot. when it was assembled and plugged in everything worked perfectly.

As I thought about all of this, I realized just how thankful I am that God doesn’t see the removal of the “zip ties” – things that seem to keep me tied up – as not worth the time of removing and repairing. I am so grateful that He will not throw me out – like I did with the tree – but repair and restore me when I have “dark spots”. Praise God!!!!

Ephesians 5:8 reminds us, “For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of the light.”

Miss Sisterhood Yuma

So, to say I’m pretty excited about “Miss Sisterhood Yuma” is a HUGE understatement! I feel like my heart is about to explode with so much joy and passion!

Back in June of this year, Pastor LaCinda and I were in my office just catching up and somehow in the stream line of conversation we begin to say how we wish we could do something for the Jr. High and High School girls of our church and city.

Well at Champion we really don’t sit around wishing and hoping on what we could do….WE ACTUALLY DO IT!

So why “Miss Sisterhood Yuma”?

Young girls are so much more than a cute face with a cute outfit. They have real thoughts, real feelings, and real challenges that differ than any other generation. They are trying to navigate this season of their life and discover who they really are and why they were put here on this earth. One thing I have discovered about this age group is they are HUNGRY to belong and make their life count for something.

We are Sisterhood!

Love, Hannah Tovar xoxo

I want to inspire people. I want someone to look at me and say, ‘Because of you, I didn’t give up.’

It was so encouraging to see this Instagram post from @laur3ncraft! I wanted to share it with those who inspire me the most in life… You, the Champion!!

It’s SO important for us to stop and pause, taking a moment to reflect on the BLESSING and INSPIRATION we are in the lives of others. “YOU” ARE A TRUE BLESSING and “YOU” INSPIRE MANY!!!

Today Pastor Stephen and I were out at the Pumpkin Patch and seeing all the orange tee-shirts was an incredible sight. Of course the Champion Volunteers were in full form as they prepared to lead little ones from station to station.
