Deborah - PEACE
Deborah - PEACE

Hello! I enjoy quiet activities like reading and praying. I am always praying for my friends...that is how I show Jesus' love. Praying for others when I am scared or sad gives me a feeling of peace. I know Our Father will take care of everything. When I am not with my friends, I love to have alone time with my mom or dad, especially sharing a good book. Romans 8:5-6

Elizabeth - GENTLENESS
Elizabeth - GENTLENESS

I dance ballet, and I also like to design outfits. Maybe I'll be a fashion designer someday! You know, I have a little brother named Justus and a pet dog named Sparky. As the older sister, I have a big responsibility to set a good example. I try to be gentle with my things and what I do and say so Justus and others may see how God's Holy Spirit is working in my life. It's not easy, but with God, all things are possible! 2 Timothy 2:22-25

James - GOODNESS
James - GOODNESS

I like to play sports like basketball and soccer. I am pretty competitive, but I try to remember to work with my teammates and enjoy the game regardless of whether we win or lose. That's called good sportsmanship. As Christians, we are called to be wise and make good decisions. That pleases God. 3 John 11

Lawton - JOY
Lawton - JOY

My friends and family tell me I am very creative. I love to draw and paint. I hope to be an artist someday. Most of the time I am full of joy because I know God loves me. Also, my parents taught me that the key to true joy is to put Jesus first, Others next, and Yourself after that. John 15:9-11

Will - SELF-CONTROL
Will - SELF-CONTROL

I have a sister named Dara Catherine. I am learning martial arts, but I know I cannot use my skills at home, especially on my sister! I have to use self-control. If I get upset, I ask the Holy Spirit to give me peace and self-control so I don't do or say anything that would displease Him. 2 Peter 1:5-7

Justus - KINDNESS
Justus - KINDNESS

I have an older sister named Elizabeth. I LOVE to play with cars, trucks, planes, and trains. Sometimes it is hard for me to share with my friends when they come over to play, but I know that Jesus wants me to be kind to others. I try really hard to be kind, so I share my toys and take turns on the swingset. I even let my friends go first! Colossians 3:12-14

Dara Catherine - CHARITY (LOVE)
Dara Catherine - CHARITY (LOVE)

I have a brother named Will. He and I like to stay healthy and active by eating right and keeping busy. My favorite activity is gymnastics. One way I show Jesus' love to others is by taking care of them when they are sick, hurt, or just feeling sad. 1 John 4:12

Cecilia - FAITHFULNESS
Cecilia - FAITHFULNESS

I enjoy listening to music and singing. Someday, I hope to lead in singing at my church, so I'm learning how to play the guitar. I like to make up my own songs, too! I have faith that God is always with me, guiding me, especially through His Holy Spirit. 1 John 5:4-5

Danielle - PATIENCE
Danielle - PATIENCE

I guess you could say I am sporty. I like to be active and play outdoors, especially when I'm on a team. I play softball. I really look forward to when it's my turn to bat or have a turn in the outfield, but I know I have to be patient. Everyone gets a turn on my team, and we support each other. 1 Corinthians 13:4-7
