Second hour classes started back up, we studied the 12 disciples starting in December and finished them up in January. We discovered that even the lesser known disciples had contributions to Jesus' ministries and teachings.
We had a Nerf war one night. We evenly split up the teams between college-age helpers, high-schoolers and junior high kids. It is great to see even the quietest of the kids come out of their shells when we engage in physical group activities.
We also had a movie night at my house. We watched Overcomer and ate the kids favorite foods. It is so important to have family dinner with them, because just like with your own kids, when they are filling their bellies somehow they feel more comfortable sharing about themselves.
Blessings to you all and thank you for sharing your kids with me.
