Getting to the dentist every 6 months with 5 kids takes an extreme amount of planning. I would never take them all at once because that would of course take all day. It would also use up all the poor dentist available appts. It would be Whitlock Day. I break them up into groups. First Tori because she is the hardest to schedule. Then Tres and Jordan go a few weeks later. Natalie and Kobe go within the month after the boys. We are blessed to have a wonderful pediatric dentist who puts the kids at ease. They actually look forward to going. I read Kobe a book about going to the dentist to prepare him for the visit. We talked all afternoon about the FUN trip we would have. When it was time to clean his teeth it took 2 people to hold him down. I did not stay, im not good at handling those eyes looking up at me as if I had betrayed him in some way. There was a window right outside the room and soon after I left he calmed down. Which helped me to calm down. He walked out of the room smiling and ready to get his prize from the treasure box. Thank God Natalie, the professed dental visit expert, had no problems with her visit.

Deroot the religious spirit from our country. Bind up and destroy the spirit of white supremacy. Holy Spirit breath into the dry bones and raise them up for such a time as this. “Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe on these slain, that they come to life." Peel off the coverings over our eyes. Let us see, hear and respond like you God. Let the world know we are Yours by our actions. Let the true image bearers shine light in every corner of this country. Bring down the prideful. Raise up the humble. We have heard what our ancestors say about you. Do among us as you did among them. I plead the blood of Jesus over every idol upheld by the American church. Let your fire fall from the heavens and cast them down. Enough of their dominance among your people. They are no longer welcome here in Jesus name. Cast their earthy thrones down God. Let the heavens open, shake the earths foundation, until your church puts away their earthly agendas and looks back to you. Do whatever it takes. Amen #prayer
