Marble Agape - This simple marble has no beginning and no end. That represents the unending love of God. Put it in your pocket or purse and when you feel all alone or are having a tough time, get the marble out and hold it. It will remind you that God loves you and He is with you always! I picked the marbles up at hobby lobby. Sorry about the white spot on the photo, I just covered up our youth group name.

Prayer Pretzels Handout.

Yesterday, the lesson in primary that Joe and I taught was: I Can Speak with Heavenly Father in Prayer I've seen the idea for Prayer Pretzels floating around on the internet and decided to make up my own handout. Since our kiddos are only 6 turning 7 - I kept the basis of these pretzel treats pretty simple. If you were teaching kids just a bit older, you could tell them THIS story. I had high hopes of finding the pretzels pre-packaged in the small snack size individual bags. But....since I…

DIY :: New Year Wishes Prayer Flags

Happy New Year! I came across a version of these prayer flags in a copy of Somerset Workshop several years ago and have wanted to make my own set every since.

I ran a prayer workshop the other day and was looking for a way to make some tactile finger labyrinths that children could play with. Lego was the obvious solution! I made some simple spiral labyrinths with a square baseboard and a circular one I bought over Christmas and I really loved the effect.

1 When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. 2 Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. 3 They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. 4 All of them were…
