After going through heartache in second and third grade over writing I never thought we would get to a place where Kobe enjoyed the writing process. It has not happened over night but here we are. The first step was finding a teaching strategy that would allow him to plan out the writing process in a way he could understand. He would explain to us that his thoughts would be jumbled up when he would try to write them down and he didn’t know where to start. Once we learned more about inattentive ADD his statements made much sense. A few families had told us about the success their boys were having with IEW so we placed him in his first class last year. I can’t say how much it has changed his mindset and elevated his confidence about his ability to be a great writer. Today’s convo: It’s not just writing mom. We write, then discuss, then laugh, then write again. Musical words to this momma’s ears.

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
