It was a very crafty day at the October Chicktime event. Carolyn started us off by showing us how to make beautiful prayer boxes and fill them with our special prayers for friends, family, and the New Life staff. Each girl kept her prayer box and will have a daily reminder to pray for others and keep God close in mind and spirit.
Next it’s off to decorate our journal books. Sandra had lots of beautiful paper, stickers, and decorations for us to adorn our journals and make them special. Journaling is an important activity for the girls and it’s great to have a uniquely decorated journal for jotting down our thoughts and feelings.
Now time for a snack! Nancy engaged us with delicious Halloween treats. First, a yummy spider we made from a chocolate mini donut, pretzels and M&Ms, which sat upon our spider web, made of pretzels and white chocolate. Then, a healthy witches broom from string cheese and pretzels.
Finally, we created something special for the men and women of our armed forces who have returned home to recover from injuries. We made patriotic greeting cards filled with notes of encouragement and thanks to be delivered to the Wounded Warriors at Brooks Army Medical Center.
Special thanks to all the volunteers who came out to play with the girls today, and we welcome our first time volunteers from the Berean Bible Fellowship Women’s Group. Thank you leaders: Carolyn Boden, Sandra Hatchett, Nancy Torres, and Liz Barger for creating such engaging stations.
