I am so sorry for your loss and am sorry I missed your mom's services.

I, of course, have many wonderful memories...But the one I want to share is how she allowed me...as a jr. high kid...to come into her Bible class and be her helper. She definitely taught me the fundamentals of telling and teaching the old, old story to another generation. She also ingrained in me the importance of teaching this next generation how to teach the Word. In the years to follow, I would often remember her example

I am so sorry for your loss and am sorry I missed your mom's services.

I, of course, have many wonderful memories...But the one I want to share is how she allowed me...as a jr. high kid...to come into her Bible class and be her helper. She definitely taught me the fundamentals of telling and teaching the old, old story to another generation. She also ingrained in me the importance of teaching this next generation how to teach the Word . (The Pedagogy, I suppose...) In the years to follow, I often remembered her example, and often would have the older kids come in and help meet teach the younger ones.

And, I always remember she had homemade cookies in her cookie jar. The chocolate chip and peanut butter ones were my favorite. Those days were enchanted. And the forever-open-to-others Bynum home were part of the reason.

Love you forever...
