Peacocks and Prayer

Our third workshop at church was wonderful.  We created cards for the homebound parishioners.  The deacon at our church delivered them during his weekly visits.  I actually used the card story from Tiger Mom to explain that you need to do quality work and put forth effort to show that you care.  It is not enough to just draw a simple two line cross on a card and have the recipient feel that you cared.  This workshop was not about quantity.  I did not care how many cards we created.  I cared that the cards were beautiful and well made.  There is something magical about children’s artwork.  My favorite card was made by a 6 year old. 



We used my favorite tutorial site, artforkidshub.com to learn how to draw a peacock.  We talked, drew, prayed, colored, prayed some more and 90 minutes later we had cards to give to Deacon Joe.  





* there is no update for week #4 - no children attended the workshop.

Don't You Just Stay Home All Day?

It’s funny because last night at youth group some of the kids friends were discussing homeschooling and really truly felt that we stay home...
