You haven’t heard from me recently because I started a new adventure!
At the beginning of the year, I took on the position as the Children Director at a church near my house. I am very thankful that God opened the door for me to step into this full-time position. It’s a place where I can continue my mission of speaking to parents as well as influencing kids. I’ve survived the first 2 months; it’s been both challenging and fun! I look forward to work everyday, and I know I’m very fortunate to be able to say that.
This means that I have less time to blog, but I intend to continue since I can share with you the lessons I am learning through the parents and kids that I work with.
The first lesson I’ve learned is, every child needs to be loved. In a group of 150 kids, it’s the troublemakers who gets the attention. All the prayers go to him/her! But the quiet and compliant child needs our care and prayers too. They tend to blend in the background, and could get neglected. I make it a point to seek them out to give them a word of love and encouragement.
What a joy it is to have a part in the lives of children.
