This fills me.  Completely fills me.

Energy at it’s finest.  Kids and their families coming to learn together.  It’s what Kid Jam is all about.  Families working on projects, worshiping together, eating together—what’s better?

We tried something new this past week in moving Kid Jam to a Sunday morning to kick off this Easter season.  Many of you have asked me about these Resurrection Gardens we did as a family project.  And I’m here to tell you, PINTEREST is my friend, if you didn’t already know that.  And I have friends who have done this in their own Children’s Ministry and from them, I knew how awesome of a project it was.  Plus they gave me tips!!  (love that.)


Special daddy/daughter time as the rest of the family was home sick with big bro.  Sometimes it’s just really, really cool to be the only one who gets to do the family project, you know?

This is how it all started.  With a terra cotta plate for each family.  And instead of a terra cotta pot, we used a plastic solo cup at the recommendation of another Children’s minister—thanks Sharla!!!  It worked super.  So here is what they went home with yesterday…

And here is what it will look like on Easter morning…

So much teaching you can do with this one activity.  The old barren rocks, dirt, and lifelessness—–to the beautiful green and new life PLUS an empty tomb.

I absolutely loved this activity and can’t wait for Easter morning!

And just like our life in Christ, we need to water it daily—whether you are worshiping, praying, going to Sunday school or Wednesday nights—you are growing up in the Lord.  And building a life-giving faith.

All because Jesus made the way possible for you to live forever with Him.
