Resurrected Mind


A True Story of An Adopted Son,

A Crippling Disease and An Against-All-Odds Miracle

by Nancy Jensen with Susan McAllister

A five-year-old abandoned boy finds his “forever family,” creating what

Social workers call “one of the best matches we’ve ever seen.” This lively, loving, little boy, whose humorous antics and joyfulness bring delight to his parents and older brother and sister, is tragically diagnosed three years later with a heartbreaking condition. His new family watches helplessly as he spirals downward, but eventually discover that their unrelenting faith could lead to a miracle and a medical breakthrough. Can their family stand together as they persevere to battle the nightmare surrounding their youngest member? Heart wrenching, humorous, and inspiring, this is the story of an ordinary family that learns the amazing lesson of “When you step out on faith, then you find miracles.”

"A Young People's Concert," Presented by the Chicago Church Kingdom Kids Ministry

“My name is Lydia, and I’m in eighth grade, and I’ve been playing flute for three years. The song I’m going to play is Mozart Concerto No. 1 in G Major. Now, I’m only going to play the first movement, and only part of that movement, because that movement is ten minutes long. So please enjoy.”

Lydia Walquist’s comments during a rehearsal demonstrate the caliber of talent, poise and showmanship demonstrated at “A Young People’s Concert,” sponsored by the Kingdom Kids ministry of the Chicago Church of Christ.

Gifts From A Child's Heart

Gifts From Our Children
Vicky Bergem
San Diego

As a mom, I love the gifts my children make for me. This year I waited patiently to
see what goodies come home from church and school for Mother's Day Yes, I do love receiving gifts bought from the store, but I treasure the gifts my children make. Nothing compares to gifts made with L.O.V.E.! I love the creativity and I love their excitement as they tease me, saying they are making something but I cannot I have it now. They sneak it into the house and tell me not to look under their bed or in their closet. Oh, the temptation they put in front of me!

My treasures include painted pictures, hand-made cards, potted plants and hand-crafted flowers.
As a Children's Ministry Co-ordinator, I am always looking for fun craft projects children can do to encourage someone else. I get a lot of ideas from the Internet and magazines here in the US – but I would love to share YOUR ideas! 

Send a picture of your craft idea and include instructions, if necessary, to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Priscilla's Quiet Time

At the tender age of six, Priscilla Templer loves to read and has quiet times on her own with her “big girl” NIV Bible. Watch and listen as Priscilla shares her quiet time with her mom, Nadine: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HSicogWkHy0

The Templers believe children should begin having quiet times at a young age. Then it becomes a habit and doesn’t have to be forced or taught later. Some parents are reluctant to teach their kids to have quiet times, fearing they will enforce something the kids may rebel against later.

The Templers disagree with that perspective. They have five children, and Priscilla is the youngest. All five learned to have quiet times when they were young and they have continued through their lives. The oldest two are now disciples and leaders in the church.

I want to encourage everyone to read the bible to your children daily and help them have their own quiet times when they are able to read. It is never too early to build a relationship with God.

Mark and Nadine Templer adopted Priscilla from Chennai, South India, when she was four years old. She spoke only Tamil, but in a very short time she learned to speak and read English. Follow Priscilla on YouTube as she posts more of her quiet times.
