Grace and Peace to you and those you love! We hope that this Eastertide is one of joy and growth for you and your family. We’re so grateful for the opportunity to spend time with you and to share ideas about how to tell the story of Jesus to our families and to live that story out, day by day.
Our sister Nurya Love Parish has begun such a good work, with the help of Jesus and a cohort of dedicated authors from around the Church, and we are so grateful for her leadership and passion in planting and cultivating Grow Christians in the lives and hearts of so many families. From the beginning, her vision for creating a blog focused around Christian formation opportunities for parents and those who care for children has been a beacon of encouragement and invitation to community. This vision has been a clarion call to many of us, and has encouraged Forward Movement to continue to create innovative and inspirational digital content focused around families and faith formation, to the glory of God and for the love of Jesus. There is no filling Nurya’s shoes—that is a singular and beloved set of footprints in our hearts and in the pages of this site. Fortunately, Alison Sandlin Liles has a pretty great pair of her own shoes, and we are so looking forward to seeing where the next phase of this journey takes us all together, with her as our friend, guide, and orienteer.
Forward Movement’s mission is to inspire disciples and empower evangelists of all ages and all life stages, and we are so excited about all the ways Grow Christians helps us live into that mission. During the next month, we’ll be featuring new and thoughtful content, as well as taking a fond look back at some of our most popular and commented-on posts. We look forward to continuing to grow in grace, alongside you and those you love.
With prayers of thanksgiving and joy,
Your Friends at Forward Movement
