THE WHY TIME BLOG
Writer: Anne Bailey Coleman (AKA NannyGranne)
My life has revolved around little ones since the age of twelve when my baby brother was born. At fourteen, I began teaching the “Cradle Roll” Sunday school class ages 0-2 (yes, taught – not just babysat), and continued past retirement over fifty years later. When my own children were small, rather than leave them, our home became a licensed daycare. Throughout their years at home we felt our Lord’s mandate to train our own children in His ways. We were not nearly perfect, but we tried our best. Now they teach me. My husband, with his degrees in Bible and Ministry, always encouraged me to study for myself, providing me with a library of concordances, lexicons, commentaries, and a listening ear. Perhaps the greatest lessons I’ve learned so far is that there is no realm where God has not spoken, and that Truth has nothing to fear, no matter how it’s examined. Truth will be found by the honest seeker. (To check out Anne’s blog, click on the “WHY TIME” link in the menu at the top of the page. To contact her personally: Nannygranne@gmail.com.)
