Toddlers!

Things I learned by helping in the toddler class last Wednesday night: 1.  Sebrina Ellison is one of the most gifted people I have ever seen work with kids.  It was a joy to serve with her, and learn from her.  The anointing is certainly on her…I saw her calm several storms! 2.  Don’t let…
