To truly wow kids in your VBS, you must show them God’s love. Show them your church cares about them. Make it obvious that you care about them as a person, not as a name on a roll.

The women that were there were more in roles as helpers and not as main roles. The liturgy I felt impacts more people of older age rather than children but the priest did make it relatable at times for the children. However, I do believe that the overall liturgy is meant to impact the adults and make them realize, this celebration is more than just the resurrection of Jesus Christ, and it’s the remembrance of his sacrifices for us without asking anything in
I have mentioned over and over the big priesthood encampment and while it was an amazing experience and I felt like I was able to help as one of the stake leaders one of the most important parts to me was our morning scripture study. We were partnered up and one of my two was a not a member of the church. I taught him how to read the scriptures then after even went and got him is own copy. I know that to some one person doesn 't matter that much, but I know that I can change this kids life.
There is no doubt I have enjoyed my time at Southeastern Bible College. I have been blessed to be taught by some great men and women of the faith, who have never forced a certain way of thinking on me but instead challenge me to think about way I believe. Before coming to Southeastern I would say I was a maturing Christian Child. This is obviously not speaking in terms of physical but spiritually I was a child in my faith. God was teaching me things about himself during this time
When it comes to preparations I believe that everyone should put it to prayer, that is one of the things that I would be doing and being in Southeastern University is perfect for that because we have the liberty to just pray, pray before classes or after classes, before dinner, or just praying because we are thankful for what God has done for us. Another preparation that should be done is determining if the career path is the right one for me and if that is what God wants me to do because at the moment I am going for a major in graphic design because I believe that through my art, I can spend the word of God and this University is perfect because it is a Christ center one and that everything we do, we do for our Lord and savior. That is why my goals this year is to try out graphic design, to see if this is what God is asking of me or whether it has to do with the passion I have in playing the piano and that my calling might be centered around that, or I might just pick something completely different than what I even thought about becoming because that is what God’s calling is for
Whenever struggles or hardships come my way in life, I can just look at this bible verse. As i read this verse and write this, I think about all the amazing things God has placed in my life.

I am now much happier I have moved.
Beautiful tones filled the room. The song sang of peacefulness, but also sorrow as the piano sang the melody. His fingers skimmed over the keys as if he held his hand in a gently flowing stream. He knew he was doing superb.
It was used to help Christians in their daily lives. The Rule was helpful to many as it brought people closer together and reduced the amount of conflict there was between people.

The desire to assist people as much as possible on their individual spiritual paths, with an emphasis on self-discovery is evident in the layout of the church. For instance, a room includes a large Chartres Labyrinth painted in a single path leading to a center and out again, such that people may symbolically walk the spiritual pilgrimage. The reflecting walk also serves to remind us of those who walked great distances hundreds of years past in honor of the teachings of Christ. The path walked is described as "movement is a body prayer through the architecture of the soul. As we move to the centre, healing, transformation and the divine can be known."
Joe gets on her knees, lowers her arms, and puts James down in the center of the room gently. James lets out another groan, as soon as he touches the floor. "Is it your head again?" I ask, in a soothing tone, as I walk over
