Kaity's Turn

Last night our church held the award ceremony for our children in the AWANA program. For those of you not familiar with AWANA, it's an acronym meaning Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed, based on the scripture verse 2 Timothy 2:15 - "Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth." The program is based around scripture memorization and other biblical precepts like sharing your faith and serving others. AWANA in our church ends after the 5th grade, so this was Kaity's last year. She was very excited to have earned the Challenge award for finishing the 3rd book in the Truth & Training level (3rd-5th grade for us), which is technically the highest book our church offers. There is a 4th book, however, for churches who offer T&T for 6th grade, and Kaity worked hard to earn that this year, as well! The award for finishing all four books is the Timothy award and she was the only one to receive it for this year. The exciting thing is that she did it in 3 years! In addition to her awards, our children's pastor presented Kaity with a new Bible.

The awards are actually pretty cool - the Challenge award is like a green glitter "snow globe", and the Timothy award is blue and green oil in water.

My sweet, smart girl.
