FRIDAY FREEBIE: Encouragement Starter Packet
Friday? More like Fri-YAY!
(I know, that was cheesy. But this is who I am and I’m not ashamed.)
The only thing better than Friday is getting free stuff on Friday!
Today’s Friday Freebie is a resource that will get your students showing love, spreading kindness, and speaking encouraging words to those around them.
Recently in our youth group, I noticed that my students just weren’t very nice to each other. I realized that I can teach them all about God’s Word and living for Him, but if I neglect to teach them to truly live it out, I am falling short. After talking with friends of mine and asking God how I can approach this issue, the Encouragement Starter Packet was born!
In this resource you will find instructions on how to implement this same strategy into your ministry, as well as how to keep it going within and outside the walls of your ministry. Pictured below is a shot of our students taking part in the “Encouragement Circle”—one of the activities included in this resource. It was absolutely amazing to see them doing just what God calls us to do in His Word—speaking words that build up others according to their needs, so that it may benefit those who listen (Ephesians 4:29).
My hope is that you will use this packet to start a chain reaction of kindness within your group that begins to work its way into the lives of those around you and your students.
