Reflection Friday

If you are new to .Redeemed., I lead a middle school girls eGroup Thursday evenings with the girls is one of my favorite parts of the week. They are an amazing group of girls and they teach me as much as I teach them.

Icebreaker: We celebrated Molly's birthday with hot dogs and fruit pizza before eGroup.  This was our icebreakers.

Discussion Highlights: This week, we discussed the last three sections of when God writes your love story. This chapter is titled "Against the Tide".

- Eric and Leslie's marriage started with a flea infestation, raccoons in the chimney, busted water pipe's and bronchitis.  If your marriage were to start like that, what would be your first instinct?  How would you handle it?

- What does dating mean to you?

- Is it okay to date?

Closing: I closed the evening in prayer.  I reminded them about the party we are having next week to celebrate the ending of the book.

During the Week: There is no assignment for the girls this week.

Next Week: We will gather for a party to celebrate finishing the book.  This is a huge milestone and we can't not celebrate it!

Personal Reflection: I was reminded this week why we moved snack to after eGroup.  The girls were not focused.  We had eight girls in attendance, but the amount of side conversations made it feel like we had fifteen.  It is hard to focus when there are girls having side conversations.

Personal Highlight: We finished the book!  We have been reading this book since November!  It may have taken us decades to finish, but we did, and the girls lives have changed because of it!  I wouldn't change the way we did it at all!
