WHAT WE'RE LEARNING

Pre-School

This month, we are teaching your preschooler that people are God’s works of art. Preschoolers will learn that God has a plan for them through the story of Joseph. Bottom Line: God has a plan for me.

Elementary

This month, our “Life App” that we are teaching our elementary students is honesty — which is choosing to be truthful in whatever you say and do. In May, we will use the “web” and “codes” and how to keep ourselves true.

Move Youth

May 2018 | Passing Down Patience

Let’s begin with a confession; patience is a virtue I aspire to, not one I’ve mastered. I hate to wait, I hate to wait in line, I hate to wait for people, and I hate to wait for a surprise. When I was a child I became a master at poking undetectable holes in my Christmas presents so I wouldn’t have to wait to find out what was inside. (Many years later I discovered my mom knew I poked holes in the presents, she just gave up caring.) This reluctance to wait has never worked out well for me; I didn’t want to wait on marriage, so I talked my fiancé into getting hitched when we were 19 and 20; I didn’t want to wait for graduation, so I dropped out of college after my sophomore year; (I eventually earned my undergraduate degree almost 15 after high school.) I didn’t want to wait on technology, so I bought a computer that became obsolete on the drive home from the store. If there was a prize for impatience I would be the first in line because I just don’t have time to wait around.
