Grace
Essentials Award
Grace needs some extra help and I wasn’t sure she was going to be able to complete an upper-level book. The leaders welcomed her into the group with open arms. Coming alongside her loving her and helping her. This award is theirs as much as it is her’s. I am so thankful for my amazing church.

Jonathan’s
1st Sparky Book Award
He required some extra grace this year too. Along with his hearingloss, he is also working through selective mutism and can’t talk in a group. I wasn’t sure he would be able to finish his book this year. But again leaders stepped up and we found a way for him to get his verses done. He was so excited to get his ribbon last night!
Awana means so much to me. As leaders, we hear the kids recite their verses and wonder if they are getting it. But let me tell you as a kid who grew up going to Awana, it is these verses that I learned as a child that I find myself going back to and the ones I know best.
Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. – 2 Timothy 2:15
I am thankful that my kids are now getting to go grow up in Awana too. I love that I am getting to give back and be a leader and invest in children’s lives what was once given to
me.

My Praryer
Father, there are tears in my eyes today because I am so thankful. I am thankful for those who live out what it means to be your church. Who comes alongside my children love them, help them and teach them. I am thankful for these friends who encourage me, who pray for me and with me. Thank you for the Awana program as it is used to teach children your word.Thank you for your promise
that your word will not return void.
~Amen
