Hero Day

Today the kids had Hero Day at school.
They could wear a costume of their choice of any kind of hero. I thought this would be a great opportunity to teach them about real heroes, not just make believe ones like batman, spiderman, etc. We talked about Police officers, firefighters, soldiers, etc. which are wonderful heroes that do not receive enough recognition. Then we talked about heroes that we have in our life and even people that the kids know personally like pastors,missionaries, teachers, etc. So my kids dressed a little different than the other kids at their school today, but what a great lesson they learned!
Harrison went as a Pastor
Both of the girls went as missionaries.
Harper a missionary to Brazil

Mary Elizabeth a missionary to Guatemala
Nothing would make Jason and I more proud than if our children went into ministry. I know that these costumes may not be as fun or as cute as a princess or superman, but my kids now know that anyone who shares the good news of Jesus Christ is a HERO!
