Kennette Pyles

May 4
It's been many, many years since our children took swimming lessons, but I know the experience was nothing like what I watched in Nashville.  This instructor has made teaching children to swim her passion.  Her three year old drown years ago and she decided to do all she could to see that no other parents experience this.
The number one goal is to teach these children from infants up, to turn over and float in the water if they get into distress.
This particular grandchild is not one to warm  up to new activities quickly, but Kennette's whispers in his ear have won him over!  Watching her teach is truly a beautiful experience.  The graduation lesson requires the child get in the water fully clothed, I think even in a jacket, and show that they can turn over and float.  This grandson has loved the swimming lesson experience so much that now he is taking lessons to work on his strokes.
"Servants, do what you're told by your earthly masters.  And don't just do the minimum that will get you by. Do your best.  Work from the heart for your real Master, for God, confident that you'll get paid in full when you come into your inheritance.  Keep in mind always that the ultimate Master you're serving is Christ.  The sullen servant who does shoddy work will her held responsible. 
Being a follower of Jesus doesn't cover up bad work.
Colossians 3:23-25
