Overachiever Fathers by Christy Fitzwater

It was sixth grade, and I had to make a bug collection for science class--a miserable assignment for a book nerd who generally avoided nature. I managed to collect the bugs, but you will not believe how I displayed them.

I asked dad to help me.

All the bugs were laid out on velvet-covered Styrofoam encased in a hand-built, wooden case that had been sanded, varnished, and glossed.
There was a lid with hinges and a latch to close it and inlaid glass so you could view the bugs without opening the door. This was Dad's idea of helping me with my science project. 

Every time I ask God for help I get the same thing. 

Way more than I asked for.

Way better than I imagined.

Over the top.

Ephesians 3:20 tells us God is “able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine.” We only have to ask for help.

Christy Fitzwater: "I am a nerdy book reader with an English degree and secondary teaching certificate. My cozy home is in Kalispell, Montana, where I enjoy serving the living God with my pastor husband and two teenagers."
