What is going on here...

Ok now that this new blog stuff is all over. It is set up the way I want for now. I can share with all of you what we have been up to the last two weeks.

We were accepted into the ATI program, which we were over joyed. In being accepted we were required to take the Basic Life Seminar as I mentioned in a previous post, which we are thoroughly enjoying, as well as being spiritually challenged.  We received our Wisdom Booklets, so we were able to start our schooling. The first week was wonderful.( we just now finished our second week) We are all learning so much. The children enjoy the unity the booklets bring to our family. They are all learning the same material, and the projects have been a challenge to them.

What I really wanted to share with you was the Major concepts, the scripture and the Character quality. The major concept- God sees differently than man sees has manifested itself in so many ways in our lives. Not only through situations,but also  in us realizing how different we see than God's sees in every situation, and through others sharing how God sees differently and even through blogs (Tabitha) She quoted a verse on that God sees differently than man sees and shared how she viewed this verse. It is amazing how it is coming alive in our lives.

The scripture- we have started memorizing the sermon on the mount. (Mathew 5:1 and 2 ) is what we got so far. I decided to take it slow so that I would learn it and retain it! ( some of you understand exactly what I mean)

Lastly is the Character quality- awareness. We are not just talking about spiritual awareness, but also physical awareness. IBLP definition of awareness is being aware that which is taking place around me so I can have the right response to it. It is our responses to everything that we glorify God or sin. Awareness has  manifested it self in our lives as well. Each one of the children have realized that they do not use their spiritual eyes as they should. They are not guarded nor do they consider the condition of their surroundings.

I am in total awe in seeing God manifest Himself through this material and in our lives. I am looking forward to seeing what He is going to do with the Sam Sellers Family  next.


  1. We did ATI for about 7 or 8 years I think. We loved the wisdom books, still use them sometimes for devotions. We could only go a a summer training twice. Really cool. I loved it all. I have found that people have definate prejudices against Bill Gothard though.
    How fun to know someone starting and getting excited about it.

  2. Now if you get part of ATI it is not a requirement to go to the Training sessions. It is just a benefit now, for fellowship and encouragement.

    I know of the prejudices against Bill Gothard and his institution. I believe that people persecute because they know not the Word. We hate those who truly seek God, and go against the desires of our flesh. I rejoice that there are men out there that are willing to suffer for Christ sake! Willing to be living examples for us to exam.



I love comments.. I love to hear from you and know you have blessed me with your thoughts
