Time seems to be an extremely precious commodity these days. If your family is anything like mine, you probably don't have enough of it. Between sports practices, school events, social activities and church events your calendar is probably pretty full. Author and speaker Brené Brown says, "Exhaustion has become the new status symbol." So what can you do to help combat this? First of all, pause and take a deep breath. Know that things will get better and we're here to help.
Our ultimate goal is to partner with you to help your child undertake the mission "To know Christ, and to make Christ known". As we communicate various youth events throughout the year, the last thing we want is to add stress by overloading an already busy calendar. We design our events to nurture students Spiritually, Intellectually, Emotionally and even Socially. Please know that you have our permission opt out of any of these events. Studies show that the greatest impact of Student Ministries is made through consistent attendance over a period of time, however, they also show that the greatest influence on a child's life, positive or negative, is made at home.
Here are some things you can begin doing right away:
