i’d say the best activity of the morning was a game called “truth, truth, lie.” so basically i had them breaking a commandment during the freaking ice breaker.
being a church youth group leader is hard.
seriously. i feel pressure.
pretty sure the college guy helping me out noticed i was stressed after i explained my planned activities for our first meeting today in a fast-pitch, no-breath-between-sentences-kinda-way.
it was either that or the fact that my hands were shaking.
could have either or i guess.
this whole situation is the kind of thing that could totally blow up in my face when i meet my maker.
him: crystal, your activities were boring, you had my children lying within 20 minutes, and you didn’t even give out candy for anything.
i spent all last year learning the ropes, but now the former leaders have stepped down leaving me in control.
i really, really, really, really want to be good at this seeing as how its for GOD and all.
my plan right now is basically, “try really hard to not suck.” (can youth group leaders say suck?) (i have so much to learn).
… For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord. “Plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
