From a young age, I’ve been blessed with a gift of teaching and a way with kids. Most kids get along with me and I them. It’s something that I’m very grateful for.
Growing up, I’ve volunteered at Child Care centres, youth groups and most recently assistant helping with kindergarten and school kids at my son’s school.
Last year, I was given an opportunity to be employed by the Kids Ministry at my church. It was a tough decision but I turned it down, feeling that the time wasn’t right. I knew that God will call again if that was His plan.
This year, I am honoured and take pleasure in re-visiting this dream. Not in an employment capacity but to serve Him when I can.
Kids. They are our future. They are the responsibilities that God has given us to grow His Kingdom.

All your children shall be taught by the Lord, and great shall be the peace of your children. ~ Isaiah 54:13
But Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.” ~Matthew 19:14
