Let the Fun Begin!

Put Your Heads TogetherToday was the opening meeting for Keepers at Home. It was wild, it was crazy, and it was FUN!!

It is always fun to meet the new girls coming into group and to encourage the girls that are returning. We were having so much fun fellowshipping, it almost made it hard to get to the meeting!The little people

We finally forced the girls to settle down and got busy with devotion. We always start with Bible, it gets the meeting off to the right start and helps set the tone for the remainder of our time. Having Fun

Once we had spent some time reading and praying, we got down to business. We were excited to show all the girls what to expect from the coming months. We encouraged them in their Bible reading and memorization; letting them know that prizes could be earned for their hard work!

Hmmm...We also got the girls started on their “Secret Sisters”! Each of the girls filled out a cute form telling a little bit about themselves. Next week, the girls will each be given someone else’s form and that person will be their secret sister. The girls are encouraged to pray for one another all year long and (if they would like) to bless the other person with small gifts throughout the year. The girls have always enjoyed this part of our year.

We always like to wrap up our time with snack. This being the first meeting, I was obliged to provide… cupcakes for everyone!!Yummy!

This first meeting seemed to go very quickly and with A LOT of energy! These girls sure know how to have fun and to keep us on our toes.

Can’t wait until next time!
