It’s been a long time! I’m so sorry! Life has been so busy. New job, kid’s stuff, house stuff, life stuff…oy! This past weekend I had the privilege to host a Girls Workshop at our Ladies’ Inspirational Day! What a whirlwind and rollercoaster of emotion! But God’s grace is sufficient! The whole day was a blessing!
Well, except when I had a mini breakdown because I started having that stinking about how I wasn’t prepared, and how could I encourage young girls when I’m a hot mess right now! But, thanks to my sweet sisters who God just poured his grace through to shower on me with their love, I was blessed and was able to give the message God had placed on my heart! Even messes our blessings, sometimes our biggest blessings because we see God’s hand at work!
I wanted to share the study guide I gave the girls, “Do Your Choices Produce a Harvest or a Famine?” with you all! I’m thinking about turning into a Bible Study or a more developed e-book. I would love to hear your thoughts!
There are so many ingredients that go into baking up your dreams! We need prayer, perseverance, a plan, and action! Action is the primary step in making our vision a reality. Without action, dreams simply can’t come true! God will equip you and has equipped you, but it’s mandatory that we participate. When our dreams are big even the smallest steps seem daunting, but each step you take matters! Carve out time to pursue your passion! You owe it to your dreams to be intentional about manifesting them in the world! Don’t regret what you could have done, do it! Remember everyone who ever had a dream had to take a step!
I am so incredibly encouraged by our courageous youth! Our kids are so willing to learn, love and change the world and it makes my heart so happy! In my Sunday school class, we’ve been discussing ways to serve, share God’s word and encourage others. I’ve been thinking about doing a project that was meaningful and would help our kids share their faith. I threw a few ideas out last Sunday, and the one they seemed to be super excited about was writing our missionaries to encourage them in their work for God. After further brainstorming, I thought why not connect my kids with the kids living where our missionaries are teaching and create a Pen Pal project! After speaking with contact for missionaries at church who put me in contact with our missionary in Albania it is going to happen!
I can’t wait to see their faces tomorrow when they find out they are going to be Pen Pals with children in Albania! I believe this is going to be a great way for our kids to connect globally with other children. My goal is for them to understand that there are no limits, boundaries, or walls when it comes to sharing their faith! Words have the power to connect, to encourage and to change people and the younger our kids know this and put it into practice the better! If you think a pen pal ministry is something the kids in your church or school would enjoy, free to download this Quick Pen Pal Tip Guide!
I loved deep diving into scripture and I’m teaching my Sunday school students how to deconstruct a verse so that they can get a deeper meaning and apply it to their life. So, I’ll be sharing these handouts I’ve created for my students with you! Feel free to share them with your kids or with anyone who may benefit from them!
