Being new parents has brought some issues up for Eric and I in how we will raise our children. We had decided before Olivia was born that we are going to homeschool our child/children. I was homeschooled most of my school years and think that this will be the best thing we can do for our family. We also talked of what type of church we want to worship and fellowship in with our family. Do we want a church that teaches that a mother working outside of her home is good or one that upholds the biblical role of a woman by teaching that she is to be a "keeper at home?" What about a church that adheres to true biblical doctrine and guides us through the teaching of our elders?
It just so happened that during that time of questioning an opportunity to help in a church plant arose. We had hoped for many years that a Bible Church would plant closer to our hometown, and now the time had finally come. We and both of our families along with several others will be starting this new church (The Bible Church of Beebe) this Sunday. We are praising God for answering our prayers.
