INSTANT TAKEAWAYS

1 | TAKE IT TO THE LORD

We will never meet any in our lives who loves us more, knows more about us, and wants to fight for our hearts more than Jesus. When we run into obstacles that seem insurmountable or come across pain that seems unbearable, your first and only knee-jerk reaction to those circumstances should be this; bring it to Him. Those precious moments where you sit, weeping, with your Bible open praying to Jesus are special. Through His grace, we’re able to get through anything! It really is true that there is nothing new under the sun, the Lord knows what you’re going through. Today may be tough, and tomorrow may be too, but you don’t have to walk through that journey alone. And He doesn’t want you to! He wants to pick you up and hug you and carry you when you’re too weak to continue. Lean into Him!

2 | GOD IS ALWAYS WORKING FOR GOOD

He is the only one that is continually, without rest, working for good for you. When we take that first step out of the boat, eyes fixed on Him, we can accomplish anything. Lindsy discussed her husbands first marriage and their amazing conversations that come out of it because they believe that God is kind, and loving, and working for the betterment of their relationships with Him! Sometimes, the moulding and shaping that occurs while we’re in our own valleys are necessary down the road, to determine who we are to become in Christ! And we can’t always see that at the time so please, take comfort in the fact that God is on our side.

3 | WHY WORSHIP?

Because it is everything. It’s incredibly important to invest and lead those around you to the throne and we’re called to do exactly that. When we go through the presence of the Lord we are completely changed forever, and that’s what worship does. Worship is more than just song. It’s being in the Word, it’s focusing and turning your attention to Jesus, it’s rejoicing in your circumstances (always) and praise Him in the midst of the occurrences of our lives. When you set the time aside to worship and pause before the Lord, it takes the attention off of yourself and your circumstances and places it on Him!

SHOW NOTES

Welcome back to our first episode of 2019! Today, we have the privilege of hearing from Lindsy Tucker. Lindsy is a worship leader at Truth Calvary Church in Denver who is passionate about communicating what it means to truly be a,“worshipper”. Lindsy has an amazing story that she will take us through part of today in this episode.

Sharon and Lindsy discuss what it means to be a mom in uncharted territory, what it means to have those around you invest in you, and to run whole-heartedly after our Creator, every single day. We’re so glad you’re here and we’re really looking forward to an incredible 2019, with plenty of more episodes in the works.

Colorado Christmas Adventure Story

COLORADO CHRISTMAS ADVENTURE

The Colorado Christmas Adventure unfolds around our little band of cottage mates. A family bound together by circumstance, these six kids have been removed from unsafe homes. Candy canes, Christmas lights, gingerbread houses and nativity scenes surround along with smiles, giggles and joyfulness from the kids. They are a family; we are all family here.

Bringing two of my worlds together, my church home and my work at the Tennyson Center for Children, makes my heart full. Mission Hills is not small. I remember walking into the 116,000 square ft. mega-church seven years ago. At the time, Kelly and I were seeking. After ten years of adversity, war, death, separation and loss, our family was cracking at the seams and we needed something. We didn’t know that we needed someone, but we found Him.

I was shocked when I was warmly welcomed at this church, a place that (as a Jew) I had felt I was not welcomed. But I was. There waiting for us was a warm embrace. Loving people, a caring environment and Jesus, waiting right there for us to stop running from. Giving our lives to Christ changed everything. I would shortly thereafter leave my corporate job, take a 60% pay cut and begin the journey of serving where I felt the Lord called me, caring for veterans, service members, military families and abused children.

Every one of those populations, I count myself a member of.

Today at Mission Hills, the environment is overwhelming, but it is warm and welcoming as usual. The sanctuary my family calls home.

I can see the wide eyes of our Tennyson children. They devour plates full of food truck chicken and waffles, weave through glowing gingerbread houses and warm themselves at the fire pit that hundreds of children (including my own) find respite from the cold at every week at Youth. They are kids, after all, just like any other.

We are deliberate to hold the space for our kiddos. I walk slowly through the crowds, speak softly and keep a flat affect. Our clinicians and care team at Tennyson have ingrained this in our organizational culture. Two of our Youth Treatment Counselors coolly handle little outbursts, correct behaviours and ensure that the kids are safe.

The lights sparkle in “Who Ville” as we arrive in line for face painting. Overlooking the sprawl of south metro Denver, a moment unfolds.

And I lean in.

Emma points and is explaining to the others. “Over there, see the Taco Bell?” I strain to identify the store, but cannot locate it. “Look, next to the bank. See the bell?” With perfect vision, there is no way such a restaurant is identifiable from this distance and through the clutter of buildings. Her statement is rooted in knowing. Experience. She has been here before.

“Are you from here?” I manage.

“My dad used to lock me out of the house and tell me to go get food there,” she casually states. “I used to go to school up the street.

Her affect begins to change. Her discomfort is perceptible. She stares at a girl further up in line and holds on to her cottage mate; her community for support.

“I recognize her from school,” she manages, “I hate girls.”

“Are you feeling ok, Emma?” I ask calmly.

“I get anxiety…I just hate girls.”

She holds her place. Her community anchoring her to the ground while emotions undoubtedly swirl within her. “We are all so glad you’re here with us, Emma,” I smile.

Inside my heart shatters. She was right here the whole time. Suffering in our own community and nobody saw her. Not until it was too late and her family was torn apart. Like 4,500 children in Colorado, Emma is now living in an out of home placement. She lives at Tennyson and is learning how to heal and set her sights on a new life, a new future. Emma is courageous at thirteen.

It took her being exported to Denver from an unsafe home in Douglas County to be seen and then welcomed back to her own community in Highlands Ranch.

We stand with her.

She is invited to face painting by one of my fellow Mission Hills congregants. The volunteer listens warmly as Emma hopes to have matching Christmas monkeys painted with her cottage mate. A monkey is not one of the four options that hundreds of kids are able to choose from. Nevertheless, I am proud as one of my church family members leans in to show care for the girl.

What if we all leaned in like this? No questions asked.

What if we saw moms and dads struggling to overcome their own generational trauma and supported them as they learned to heal themselves? Learned to stabilize their homes and learned to reintegrate fully? What if we never let them fall from the beginning and held them up with the support and treatment they needed?

“What if” is happening today. Right in front of me. And in churches all over our community.

We are proud to lead an effort that reaches into the margins of every one of our communities, one child and family at a time. This is the very heart of our new partnership with Douglas County Department of Health and Human Services (DHS). The very heart of partnerships with churches like Mission Hills and the Disciples of Christ congregations that have stood with us for over a century. With Boys and Girls Clubs, The Boy Scouts, Foster Power Youth and others that anchor supports and welcome kids into community.

At its core, these partnerships will enable us to see what is right amidst all of our communities: hurting kids and crumbling families that need us all to lean in, care and through treatment allow the hurt to give way for the healing.
Back at the face painting station, a monkey image is found online and before we know it, Emma has a Christmas chimp holding a candy cane on her face. Another is drawn on her friend. Emma smiles. She floats out of the church with a gift bag in one hand, her cottage sister in the other.

Taco Bell fades away as this child remembers what it’s like to be a kid again. Ahead of her lies a healing journey that will last lifetime, but she will never walk alone again. Together, with the Tennyson Center for Children, Mission Hills Church, Douglas DHS and a community of supporters, we are committed to seeing her change the world with all the bravery and heart that she walks with.

Brandon Young is the Chief Advancement Officer at the Tennyson Center for Children

INSTANT TAKEAWAYS

1 | WHERE DOES YOUR STRENGTH COME FROM?

It’s really important to remember where we are rooted in our lives. Like the title of this podcast, we must have a true anchor to keep us in place as life, Satan, and anything else throws everything they can at us to waiver us. When we don’t know where to draw our strength from, where to put down anchor, we can quickly become lost. Remember, as Job did (even when his wife, his friends, and almost everyone else around him questioned him) he stayed true in what he believed. He knows he could put all of his faith and trust in the Lord, and the Lord stayed true to Job.

I lift up my eyes to the mountains—where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth. | Psalm 121:1-2

2 | YOU WERE DESIGNED BY A CREATIVE GOD

It’s true! Our God designed each and every one of us with passion, creativity, and drive. There is an incredible quote by Mike Rimero that says:

“Here’s the truth: It’s impossible to lack creativity while standing in the presence of the creator. The Lord has graced us with an intrinsic ability to create. To design beauty from nothing. To write, to draw, to build, to sing and to dance for something and someone bigger than ourselves…” | Mike Rimero

As you read through the Psalms, it becomes incredibly clear that we are creations by a God who wants us to be spontaneous, whimsical, and intentional with what we build and what we breathe life in to. Creativity is so much of what gives life joy and meaning and He wants us to have that! Whatever you’ve been gifted with, or whatever you’re passionate about, do it with all of your heart. Artists should dance, paint, write and sing without fear of who is watching. God is watching, and He is proud.
