Christmas Skit, God’s Gift, is an easy skit to adapt because the older kids or adults will narrate for the young, allowing them to have fun just playing their parts without all the stress. Without the “suggested songs” the skit runs about twenty minutes, featuring a strong scriptural message about Christ.
For ages 4 and up.
Ark of Safety offers life-changing events and testimonies from children, teens, and young adults, who have come from broken homes, or have been in situations which made them feel insecure, shaking their world, like a snow globe, turned upside down. Now they’re armed to face these struggles because they’ve entered into the Ark of Safety, the arms of Jesus, where they feel safe and secure.
Today young adults are great worriers. Their concerns about school issues, making mistakes, criticism, dying young, health issues, the economy and future stability with a job barely scratch the surface. These worries are certainly with merit. Having fostered over thirty children, to include, teens, in the past ten years, the fears they voice are similar to the ones I struggled with growing up.
In a world where we live with the what-if monster, people who enter into the Ark of Safety have no fear because they have
something no one can ever take away from them—the gift of eternal life. This is not a fairy-tale, but it does have a happy ending.
At the center of The Road Home is Sarah Kiser—a nurse, a loving mother, and a woman who wonders if her family will ever find stable ground. When Children Services calls, asking her to foster a baby she worries how her family will respond.
Since the death of his brother, seventeen-year old, Luke Kiser has descended into a nightmare of bad choices: drinking, stealing, and getting suspended from school for fighting his school rivalry, Mouse. And Luke thinks his brother is in cahoots with God.
Georgia Tolliver, a very young African-American woman, is recovering from the loss of her first-born child. When Children Services takes custody of her newly newborn, one thing is certain—they must keep the baby out of the father’s hands.
As Sarah tries to help the stream of grieving people, the only thing she can do is cling to her faith, and what her mother once said—nothing is ever lost.
Over the past year, I have had Shingles on several
occasions, so I can relate to the burning and itching associated with them. Shingles is caused by the same virus that caused chicken pox when we were kids. Shingles not only attacks people who are aging, but also people with compromised immune systems or who are under physical or emotional stress. But I know of some young adults who have gotten it as well. Doctors tell you, “It’s going to be a long process to go through.” Some doctors don’t have any answers at all. The Shingles got in my eyes and caused redness, photosensitivity, and blurring of my vision. I had Shingles on both sides of my
body. I was miserable, as I know you are, too.
Since you probably already understand what causes Shingles, I’ll show you some home remedies I found helpful, recipes to boost your immune, and share with you what some doctors
didn’t tell me. I hope you get well soon.
