Fabulous Friday {January 26}

There are days when I just need to stop.  Do you have those times in your life, too?  It's been a particularly crazy week and I have felt at times like the world was spinning wildly out of control.  Each and every day has been one activity or appointment followed by yet another activity or appointment.  Some of those have been fun and refreshing; others have just been.  Whew!  I am glad that a slower paced weekend has arrived.

Here's a look at some of the things that have been going on:

Blessing Bags for Beta Club

Dinner and Riverdance with my MainMost

Birthday Celebration with Mrs. White

Construction with the T.R.E.K. girls

Construction with the T.R.E.K. boys

Construction with the Lead Team

Flooring, anyone?

Makes me tired just looking through it again because this doesn't even scratch the surface.

Fabulous Friday {January 19}

What makes for a FABULOUS Friday in your mind?

I'm enjoying a quiet day a fairly slow day at home.  It's still pretty icy outside from this latest "Arctic Blast" so I'm definitely not venturing out very far.  My driveway is crazy slush and I'm finding the warmth of the fire too tantalizing to leave.  Plus, there's snow cream to eat, so I think I'll just stay put.

Fabulous Friday {January 12}

It's Friday and I just know it will be FABULOUS!

How do I know?

It's DNOW Weekend and there are 25 middle schoolers, 4 host homes, 4 small group leaders, and a crew of adults getting ready to converge at church for an energetic weekend of Bible Study, activity, worship, and service.  I'm so stinking excited as I work on the last minute details.

And it's SNOWING outside.  Oh, my stars!  It's going to be a COLD weekend outside but a warm weekend inside as we dive into GOD's Word together.  This is what it's all about.

This FABULOUS weekend has great potential

Gospel Tracts by Let the Little Children Come {Review} #gospeltracts #FlyBy

I have been excited to share some really neat gospel resources with you this semester and you might even remember that I told you that the Gospel Tracts and Evangelism Tools Sampler Pack from Let the Little Children Come offers some of the coolest resources I've ever seen.  I love sharing with children the TRUTH that JESUS loves us all uniquely and I really like it when I have tools that children can understand completely.   Let the Little Children Come makes it easy to share the gospel in love and obedience and they remind me to do just that and then leave the results to GOD.   What makes using their resources so easy is that they offer detailed instructions on how to present the gospel with each of the tools they offer.

Each and every one of the resources found inside the Sampler Pack is designed to capture and hold the attention of children, while not distracting them from the core message of SALVATION through JESUS CHRIST.  What that means to me is that children are intrigued with the resources and will actually sit and listen to a gospel presentation.  Not only will they listen intently, but they are interested in what we are sharing and they begin to understand just how far and how wide GOD's LOVE for them is.  Isn't that what we all want to be about?

The Sampler Pack is a great place to start because it contains 10 different resources that you can use to get children excited about JESUS.  Each of the different types of tracts are provided in the Sampler Pack so that you can see first-hand how all of the resources work.  From "animated" tracts that make picture seemingly come to life as they move across the page with the use of a clear plastic film to FlipAbouts that reveal different pictures that tell the facts about GOD's love, each evangelism tool aids you in sharing the gospel with children in a powerful way.

Any of these evangelism tools can be used in a variety of ways.  They are perfect for small group settings (think Sunday School and one-on-one discipleship) and large group settings (think VBS, mission trips, backyard clubs, and children's worship).  They clearly present the gospel of JESUS in a way that is easy for children to understand AND easy to share with their friends.  These resources can be used with children of all ages and with all learning styles.  For example, the Pop-Up books will intrigue early readers and the wordless resources will be helpful for non-readers and in language-barrier ministry situations.  I think you are going to love these just as much as I do.
