What is Spiritual Formation in Children?

By |2020-03-06T11:42:36-04:00March 6, 2020|Staff Blogs, Valorie Eddy: Blog Posts|

Are you familiar with the term Spiritual Formation? It is used in many contexts. For us as followers of Christ, it refers to the work the Holy Spirit does in us to draw us closer to God and to carry us along that path of moving “from glory to glory.” At KidZ at Heart we are committed to helping adults understand that this work of the Spirit is available to children as well. Our definition reads, “Christian spiritual formation for children is the lifelong process [...]

Living Word of God

In Sunday school a few weeks ago we read through Luke 1-2 together and then shared things that stood out or that we wondered about or that we struggled with. The Word of God is living and active and the Holy Spirit is working in believers and when these things come together it is a beautiful time of listening and learning together. How have you been encouraged by the Word?

“For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword…” [...]

The Buddy System

It seems like God probably knew what He was doing when He created humans.  He created us in His image, which means that, at our core, we are relational beings, and that interacting with other people is vital to our very survival.  The further I go on this missions and support raising journey, the more evident this idea becomes.

I cannot possibly hope to accomplish anything in this ministry without a community of faithful supporters.  As I've gone through this process, I've come to enjoy the [...]

Voices of Haiti; Life from Their Perspective – Feb 2020

By |2020-03-22T23:13:53-04:00February 21, 2020|Staff Blogs, Tanya Sloan: Blog Posts|

When I started going to Haiti back in 2016 one of the first families I met were the Jeanfrancois. This family has grown dear to me over the years, becoming an extension of my own family. In getting to know them it is extraordinarily clear how much the Lord is at their very core. The Jeanfrancois family humbly gives their lives to God and are a vital part of the community and church. The entire family has been blessed by God with musical talent. I [...]

Some people may be wondering what happens when a location finishes the 8 Modules of our Transforming KidZ Ministry Training…well I’d love to tell you!
These Modules are only the first phase of what KidZ at Heart does in each location we visit. It is part of our Launch Phase. We can spend 3-7 years finishing the 8 Modules depending on how often our team can return to each location and how much we can prepare the participants for the next phase.

The Joy of a Child

The Lord has placed me in the lives of children throughout my life, even when I believed I was meant for other things.  From being one of 5 sisters, having 2 sons, a niece, 2 nephews, running a daycare for 10 years, volunteering in the youth program at church, mentoring homeless teens, loving on children in Haiti, and getting to be a part of the work God is doing through KidZ at Heart International, God has known his plans for me. My heart grows with [...]
