I don't think anyone would ever pick Monday as the best day to wake up extra early, but that's what I've been doing with this group of 7th grade girls. And you know what? It's the best. Spending time with these girls, talking about Jesus and whimsy and love is the perfect kick start to the week.
They've started following Bob Goff on Instagram, since we're reading Love Does, and one of the just noticed this group from a jail book club. The prisoners have to hold the books over their faces.

Shhhh! Top Secret Insider Information: In April some of my friends will be putting on a huge event to raise money for their mission trips. Chloe, Rachel, Es and Lauren are going out to be His hands and feet-- but the act of obedience, fundraising and patiently trusting that God will provide is teaching them a whole lot right now.

Favorite moments: Leader knockout before dinner, my 2nd Chinese meal of the day for Chinese new year, giving Sophia a bracelet, sitting and talking with Erin and Olivia, a hug from Jessica, getting to be in a group with all of the girls, talking about how we've seen God show up and how we need him in our lives now.
