 Do you know that it has been said that most children form their idea of who God is and choose whether or not they will have a relationship with Him BEFORE leaving 5th grade.

When I read that, it took me back a bit.

What a difference it makes whether or not we show these kids Jesus.

 There are 3 core truths that we want to teach these children before they leave the 5th grade.
  •  I can trust God no matter what
  • I need to make wise choices
  • I should treat others the way I want to be treated
 Thats what we are working towards at the moment with our Cornerstone Kids.

We talked this week about how God can do things that seem impossible to us.  Sometimes we sure need Him to, don't we?

The kids responded to it well.  We had fun learning. 

Fun always makes learning better.

 Sometimes with Pre K and Kindergartners, (Thats my group) you wonder if you're getting anything between the giggles, wiggles, and roars. (Literally)
 Camila had a fascination with Johns hair.

But I know I am saying it, and I know that they are all listening some of the time.  :)  Repetition is a necessity!

 It is so great to have those who help us.  It certainly takes a group effort to get this done.  But it is so important!  Chelsey is great  with the 1st and 2nd Graders.  They love her.  I do too.  Who wouldn't?

 I have no idea what this face is for????    :)

Todd always dresses the part.  He has been a scientist, a Safari character, and a Coach among other things.  This time he is decked out in his Island gear. 

 Beaux and his big smile!  What a guy.

 We have a good time.  Sometimes the kids are worn out, and sometimes we are.  :)

 But at the end of the night we are blessed to have this group of great kids.  We take this responsibility seriously. We want them to remember the things they learn while they are with us, for years to come.  Above all we want them to know they are loved by us and by God himself.

In Jesus Name...

Love this post! And your heart for these babies. :) What I wouldn't give for a certain 69 year old to have trusted Jesus for 60+ years. Hopefully, he is making that choice now, in his 11th hour.
