Words of Life Activity for Your Church Small Group

Hello and Happy Friday! I am actually currently on vacation, and this post was scheduled back at the beginning of May so I can relax and be lazy. But don’t worry, it was written with today in mind! I have gone through several stages in my life where I hated myself and I thought that I didn’t deserve to even be on this Earth and it felt like I had this weight on my soul crushing me, and there was no way for me escape. I’m just going to be honest with you, I might have gone back to those places if it weren’t for these cards. With these cards I have been reminded how much my friends, family, and God love me, and I want each of you to feel the same way, which is why I’m sharing it with you.

Here’s What You Need:

Large Index Cards (Enough so everyone can have one)

Sharpies, pens, or markers in various colors (Enough so everyone can have one)

Hard Surfaces for Everyone to Write On

Here’s How You Do It:

  1. Have everyone sit in the circle, and pass out the index cards and pens/markers making sure that everyone has one. Have everyone in the circle write their names down in the middle of their card, like mine.
  2. Now, have everyone pass their card to the person on their left. That person now has to write something nice or a characteristic of God that they see in that person. For example some things people wrote on mine were “Warrior” “Princess” and “Kind”. You can also write down a verse or an encouragement for that person.
  3. At the end, everyone gets their card back, and they can keep it in their Bible or their Bible Notebook so that they’re reminded of those things every day and encouraged! This is a great end of the year activity, and when I did it it was with my Youth Group while we were on our Spring Retreat. It is so much fun, and I love my card.

What are some things you do when you’re feeling down? Did you try this activity? If so how did it go? Let me know in the comments below!

Love you all,

5 Tips to Help You Be Motivated to Bible Journal for Teens

Hey everybody! Happy Friday! As you can tell, Fridays make me a lot happier than Mondays, and for good reason too! Fridays mean that the weekend is almost here and I am almost done studying and taking tests and solving extremely long math problems that have no actual use in real life.

The Truth About Being Real

We Cannot Look Away: Not Another 17, Not Another One

This poem originally appeared on Megha’s World, and I strongly suggest that you visit her blog! It’s truly amazing. Sometimes, reading poetry opens our eyes to problems in today’s world than just reading blog posts. Poetry has a way of capturing our hearts and our minds, staying there until we do something.

Thoughts on Love + A Love Poem

I think love can be a beautiful thing. It happens everyday, yet when it happens to us we treat it like it’s the best thing that’s ever happened to us, and the truth is, it is. I don’t know about you, but I know what it’s like to be totally head over heels for someone, and I know what it’s like to be rejected for someone else. I’m not judging anyone for leaving me. If you didn’t feel the same way, then there’s no reason why you should be forced into a relationship because you feel bad for me. I was hurt, and I did cry, but I picked myself up again.
