Vacation Bible School
I remember attending VBS as a kid, and I remember helping with VBS as a teenager and college student. I love VBS! Now that I'm a parent, I love how it is a ministry that our entire family can participate in. I remember teaching 1st and 2nd graders at West Helena Baptist Church whenever T was 3, K was 2, and L was just 2 months old. I dropped L off in the nursery, ran to teach my class, and they let me take a break while they were in recreation so I could go nurse her, then I ran back and finished up teaching my class! L was the only one in the nursery, but the nursery coordinator in that church came every morning to watch her so I could teach. VBS has always had a special place in my heart as far back as I can remember. This year I am teaching 3rd and 4th graders. K did a great job this year helping me cut things out for our lessons. Each night the children do something to help me get prepared whether it simply be just helping me carry all my junk into the church. I am co-teaching this year with a wonderful friend of mine, and I'm so thankful! Heath is helping lead the worship rally and he enjoys this so much! Vacation Bible School is a fun week to minister, grow, and learn together as a family, as we teach children about Jesus!
