After reading an article my Michael Hyatt on Gratitude, he challenged the reader to list five things they are grateful for in 2016. I needed that challenge since I was feeling a little discouraged about goals we failed to reach.

Here are the five things I thought of in less than 5 minutes:

1. We have two new board members that are awesome!
2. We have a new ministry opportunity in St Bernard parish!
3. Our office renovation is halfway complete!
4. We have a karate / Bible class for the kids in the neighborhood
5. We have three new ministry sites!

There’s my five… what are your five???? Please share below and Happy Thanksgiving!

Are after-school Good News Clubs Legal?

Kids Pledge at GNC

Did you know that in 2001 the Supreme Court ruled that after-school Bible clubs are legal! If fact, to deny after-school Bible classes in schools where other after-school programs are held is illegal! I am thankful for this wise decision by our Supreme Court and our Constitution that provided this right in 1788! I am also thankful for the efforts of Child Evangelism Fellowship to fight for our right in 2001. God bless America.

Now isn’t that some good news???

Unfortunately, when a crisis happens, the children suffer along with the adults. If the adults can get the emotional care they need, the children will benefit too.

Click here to learn how Phil and other chaplains provide care for the caregivers and ways you can help too.

How to Teach Faith to Kids

CEF Press Summer kit, One Way, offers an awesome new scripture memory song for Hebrews 11: 6. Did you know there is only one way to please God?

And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.

But how do you teach faith to kids? Actually, the concept is easy for kids to understand because they are truly creatures of faith!

Here is one object lesson I use to teach the concept.

When I used the lesson, I used a piece of construction paper. I was able to fit 8 children and 2 adults into the large opening I made! The kids absolutely loved it! At the end of the class, I let the children make their own and practice sharing their faith with others!

This is what I said to apply the lesson to the verse:

You had faith in me when you believed that I can could do what I said I would do; faith in God is believing God’s promises, that He will do what He says, even though it may seem impossible. I had a trick to the way I cut a hole in the card, but with God it is no trick. He IS God and He can and will do what He says.

Have fun!
