Just One of the Reasons That My Kids Loved Church Camp !

Posted by Pam Hastings on Tuesday, July 30, 2013,

 Summer tis the season for all kinds of fun things....one of them is church camp. All four of our kiddos jumped on the bus each year for the annual summer week of camp. The morning that they left was always a bit mysterious to me for one main reason. It was the fact that none of my kids were acting like the majority of the other rug rats in the parking lot. Let me explain ....

Just about every other kid was hugging their mom very tightly, whispering sweet things like how homesick they were goi...

We Had Some Celebrities ( I guess ) at Church Yesterday

Posted by Pam Hastings on Monday, July 29, 2013,


  Yesterday, the family pictured above came to Heritage Baptist Church in Woodbridge Va. It is the Josh Duggar family. Josh is the oldest of the Duggar brood that has nineteen children and has become famous for their television series " Nineteen Children and Counting." When you think about it, that is really the only reason that they are well known...because he is the oldest child in that family that has become known throughout the whole country. Don't get me wrong - I am sure he is a great g...

I Think that God Blessed Me in a Huge Way Last Night - My TV Died !

Posted by Pam Hastings on Thursday, July 25, 2013,




       Last night I thought that something terrible happened. This morning I am rethinking that maybe what I thought was something terrible was in fact something wonderful. What happened you ask ? My TV died. That's right....just breathed it's last breath. It was an elderly TV so it is no surprise. I actually had developed sort of an affectionate pity for it because it was so outdated. It was one of those huge , box like televisions of years gone by, not the sleek, one half inch think , flat ...

Attention all Moms and Grandmoms - Don't Lose Yourself in Your Love for Those Kids and Grandkids !

Posted by Pam Hastings on Tuesday, July 23, 2013, In : Lessons Learned 

 It is a great thing to always be learning new lessons in life. One great lesson that God has been teaching me lately is to not lose myself in the midst of loving those who mean the most to me. I know that both the title and the first couple sentences of this blog entry may seem strange. After all, as moms and grandmas, aren't our families supposed to be all important to us...next to our faith in God that is ? Well....yes, as long as we remember to value ourselves in the process.

My husband a...

Why We View George Zimmerman Differently

Posted by Pam Hastings on Monday, July 15, 2013,


 Saturday night was a tense night. I found myself sitting before our T.V. with my heart racing. I saw George Zimmerman's wife in her chair with her head bowed apparently praying. I desperately wanted her to hear those words " Not Guilty " concerning her husband. I felt that way because I had tuned in and watched most of the trial and was stunned at the lack of evidence pointing towards Zimmerman's guilt. The state just didn't have what they needed to convict him. Period.

I have noticed someth...

Cities All Across the Nation Are Putting in Place Their " George ZImmerman Verdict Riot Plans" in an Attempt to Keep Their Towns From Burning Down !

Posted by Pam Hastings on Wednesday, July 10, 2013,

    One of the headlines on the news last night was that American cities are ramping up their focus on their George Zimmerman Verdict Riot Plans. We should be saying " THEIR WHAT ?" when we hear that but sadly many of us are not. Instead we sort of nonchalantly shrug our shoulders...not because we don't care but because we have come to expect this sort of behavior.

Anyone who has been following the Zimmerman trial knows exactly why these cities are worried. They are sensing an acquittal in th...
