Is God YOUR BFF?

I know I've talked about a small group...VERY small group in more ways than one...these girls are TINY!
We are starting a new school year and want to have new ideas to keep us inspired to keep God #1 in our lives.
We meet once a week all year long.
Last year, we studied the book, "Do Hard Things", by Brent and Alex Harris.
I would encourage all teens to read this book...as well as their parents.
XS Group wants to get out of the low expectations of teens.
They want to BE the change!
I will take a picture each week of the girls holding a new verse...they will make that verse their focus for the week and see how God works with that verse each week.
They will also work the local outreach once a month...because it is held once a month.
They are also sacrificing their "wants" to put back money to possibly buy a heifer for a 3rd world family....they haven't quite decided what to do with it yet...they are seeking God's will. They started saving money in January and hope to have over $500 by the end of December.
I am very excited with their enthusiasm.
They each also took $10 to use their "talents" to make the $10 grow and give back.
One is making luggage tags that are just ADORABLE!
One is making spiritual necklaces that will look amazing on anybody!
I am selling fairy doors....
If you are interested in seeing any of the items, just leave a comment and I can post pics.
Our group Bible verse is Psalm 25:21, May integrity and honesty protect me, for I put my hope in You.
These girls are LIVING it!!
