You've got to see this: 
AND share it!


2) "Blessigns"

The other day I wrote an email to a colleague and signed off with Blessings; only I misspelled it and wrote blessigns. That typo held a message for me. (Maybe for you too?) When I look for the various ways God is faithful in my life, call it a "God-sign," then I receive a blessing by being aware of God's presence and knowing he shows up in my life! And if I share that "blessign" with others, they too will receive a blessing!

So, what "blessigns" could you share today? How is God showing up in your life and ministry to kids?

3) Palm Sunday Skit

I was hoping to use the "Palm Sunday Live" skit by Lori Peterson with our Sunday School this year. I was hoping for your permission to print and use it as part of our kids service. We regularly take part in the church service and I thought this cute skit would be perfect. 
Thank you

4) G.Y.R.I.G. & Spiritual Salad

GYRIG is a health encouragement group that I started at our church a couple weeks ago. It stands for Get Your Rear In Gear.

I did NOT want this to be about weight - I wanted it to be about health - and more importantly taking care of the Temple of the Holy Spirit. Its not just ladies. We have 1 gentleman that comes with his wife because they both wanted to do better with their overall health. 

We have 3 in their 60s, 3 in their 40s, one in her 30s and a just married teen (19). All "KNOW" things they could do to be better with their Temples. I lead off discussions and encourage them to share tips they have done that worked for them - or things they want to do and have researched some. We share healthier recipes, exercise tips, online sites and plan on participation events. 

This week's class I also shared a Spiritual Salad. I cut green paper in the shape of lettuce leaves. Each one had a "Let us" scripture* reference on it. Each person looked up the scripture read it and we shared the encouragement from God to keep on pressing toward the mark!
