Girls Really Living

This weekend I had the wonderful blessing of helping out with a new 12-13 year olds bible study. It was so much fun- first we learned about how our God is a Jealous God for us and wants to be first in our hearts, minds, and souls. Then we learned about how to spend time with the Lord and enrich our daily walk with Him. And of course, this was followed by some lovely fellowship and craft time! Everyone made a journal (including myself) :) to take home and use for journaling during quiet times. I was so inspired by these young ladies, and so blessed to be involved in the day. Here are some fun pictures of our group at "work"!

Explaining the craft...


Alright everyone, let's get started!



Carefully trace the journal shape onto the scrapbook paper, cut, and glue away!


One of our lovely hostesses, and another sweet helper.


Putting on the finishing touches.



Everybody hold up your journal and smile!

What a fun time! I wish there had been something like that for me when I was that age.

Lots of love,

Hi, Lauren,
What a wonderful way to spend your time! I've done Sunday School classes with young kids before, and boy is it an immense honor and blessing! Thank you for "declaring His strength to this generation, His power to all who are to come." (Ps. 71:18).
I'm also writing to tell you about a project I'm working on. It's a collection of Thank You Stories, to
be published in a book titled I Never Got to Thank You.
I would love to include one of your Thank You Stories.
You can read about the project on my post:
http://lovingherbeautiful.blogspot.com/2008/02/i-never-got-to-thank-you.html.
If you like what you read, I would also be very grateful if you would pass on my link to anyone else
you're comfortable with -- even if you don't write a Story yourself. My goal is to collect 100 Stories by March 31st, but that date is certainly not a cut-off. Everyone is welcome to contribute a Story -- or more than one!
Thank you for reading.
Blessings to you!
BILL
