Just some random stuff.......
My new all geekiness blog is now (much like the Death Star) FULLY OPERATIONAL! Yay! I decided to go with the same name as my Twitter username, Geek For God. You can check it out by following the link below.
I am super excited that my church's AWANA program is starting back up next week! AHHHHH!!!!!!! I have been a Sparky leader for a while now and I LOVE my kids! Like, LOVE them! But this year I'm going to be moving up to be with the older kids! I'm super excited! I was kinda scared at first because they told me to pick which one I wanted to do and I told them I would pray about it and get back to them next week, then I ended up having to make the decision on the spot, and I chose to be with the TNTers. But I'm really glad I did. I really feel like this is going to be a good year. I know this is what God wanted me to do.
I'm totally excited but yet at the same time I'm worried. The TNTers are crazy and to be a leader in that age group you need to be outgoing. REALLY outgoing. Most of you know I am quite shy, though I have gotten a lot better. I'm also kinda worried that they won't like me as much as they like the other leaders. But the think I'm really worried about the most is talking for group time. The TNT leader said if any of us wanted to speak just let him know. I was like
"OIUYGVWJHB,JFE ROFGNPIHKBUGJ,NKREGTOHVPIOKIHUGJBMERXGCFTN VPOJILBWE GRDIBLJK,N4EPRIODBKNL YYYYYYYYYEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
But I have no idea what to speak about.
I'm also scared they won't like it or I won't be as confident on stage as the others. But I do know God will give me the words and He will tell me what to speak on. So I'm not going to worry about that. I have always taken my role as a leader very seriously. I know how I viewed my leaders when I was that young. I remember some of my favorite leaders. One was my dad, and another was a 17 year old girl. I loved her! I always think of her when I consider my role as a leader, because that's how I want my TNTers to see me. I want them to grow up and be like "My favorite leader was Faith!" Another leader I had was a women from my church. She's another of my inspirations for being a leader. A few years ago I even had the privilege of being her sons leader. It was amazing!
I love my AWANA kids so very much! I pray for them all the time and I hope that I have impacted/will impact them in big ways! I know God has some crazy plans ready for this year and I'm so excited to see what they are! Prayers would also be appreciated. May the Force be with you!
