Jim,

A youth worker I interviewed recently shared a thing she does as a practice in her own life, and that she shares with teens. She calls it creating a “Life-giving List.” She teaches kids that God is life, that He creates it and gives it and nourishes it, so the things that we enjoy doing, that bring us joy and life and energy, can be considered gifts from him as well as places to connect with him, as the author and giver of life. So she encourages them to keep a list of those things, big and small, so that when life gets them down they can look at it, remember and connect with God in that life-giving place he designed in them. So I have been noticing this, becoming more aware of it in myself, and watching for and encouraging it in my kids.

As my daughter, ------, has begun to engage with the British Literature, History and SAT Prep Guides, I have absolutely seen her come alive. More than just about anything academic for too long. As a parent, this affirms for me that I heard and followed the leading of the Holy Spirit by attending your session at the MPE Conference in KC, then purchasing and planning on those 3 pieces for her study this year. And I hope that it encourages you as the one he used to manifest them. He knows what our kids need, how he created them, so it is glorious to listen and see what happens when he has guided us and met their need and then to see them living in their gifts, calling and how he created them to live. Everything about how these three studies are structured and work are in sync with her mind and how she works and what motivates and stimulates her. Wow. I am looking forward to seeing how the addition of the webinars will add to these already-amazing gifts.

Filled with gratitude and anticipation,

Kendra
