Super Saturday!

I have been asked to co-host the children's tent at Super Saturday this year and I am just so darn excited. The host is this amazing non profit SFK that empowers at risk children and teens. It is going to be a wonderful event all around and I cannot wait!

One thing on my to-do list this week is to create some "empowerment storybook lessons" for the children who will be coming through our tent (about 2-6 yr olds). These children are young and "using words" will probably not be available to them in the written form yet but verbally and conceptually? You betcha. I want the children to think about what they love about themselves, what makes them special and unique and what they can do...I can...I am...I will. What can you do? What makes you YOU? What do you dream about? What do you WANT to do?

In playing around with my word document this morning I found that a lot of the lessons I was cooking up were actually working on me! Yea, what DO I love about myself? What DO I dream about? What do I see for my life?

Take some time today to think about what you can do, who you are, what makes you special and what you WILL do with the gifts you've been given. And, for all your parents out there, send any empowerment story ideas my way! I'll be drafting up lessons all week!

Have a great one,

  1. Sounds like fun! You'll have to update us after the event and let us know how it goes--and how the kids change you! I have never had an experience working with at-riskers that didn't change me in some way. It is awesome. They are so willing to "go there" with adults who will listen to them.
