Adults "Adults can observe God's work through people and their vocations." ALLISON LEWIS Adulthood marks the beginning of one of life's best seasons. Most adults have learned from their adolescence and feel more confident and ready for all the thrilling experiences that they will likely encounter. It's an exciting time to explore a new city, dig deeper into God's Word, and find meaning through various vocations at home, work, school, and within the family unit. Adults have tons of opportunities to make a difference in their world: by teaching Sunday School to toddlers, coaching a soccer or softball team, praying for a friend who is hurting, or delivering a meal to a homebound church member. Adults set the stage for the faith development of younger generations and lead by example. Carol is a married, middle-aged mom of three. She believes in Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior, and she feeds her faith through daily devotions and a strong cup of coffee before the kids get up for school. Carol's vocation at home is to love, serve, discipline, and provide for her children and her husband, Tom. As a pediatric nurse, Carol cares for sick children and their families on her floor. Often, she lends a listening ear, a hug, or a word of encouragement to the parents and siblings she sees on rounds. Despite the tough situations that she experiences in her job, Carol knows God is present and provides peace, comfort, and healing to those around her each day. Carol is active in her church. She and her family worship weekly, the kids attend Sunday School, and she and Tom are staples of Bible class. Carol also organizes a quarterly blood drive at church. The past year was not easy with the passing of her mother and switching shifts at work. Carol is reminded of God's love and goodness when she receives Holy Communion.
