When BSA's National Religious Relationships Committee needed a volunteer devotional leader to teach two RP3 virtual sessions as part of the BSA's Virtual Interfaith Week June 29 - July 4th, volunteer writer Krissy Richardson stepped forward in a big way. She led 6 sessions over 6 days to teach both "The Good Book" and "Tents and Shelters" patches. Her audience included all ages: Cub Scouts, Scouts BSA, and adults. Although the 2 patches that Krissy taught weren't ones that she actually wrote (Krissy wrote "Trees" and "Making Room"), she did an excellent job teaching them and making them fun. For "The Good Book" Krissy taught hand motions to learn the books of the New Testament, and she actually taught a session from inside a home-made tent made out of blankets for the "Tents and Shelters" patch.
As a girl, Krissy participated in the Girl Guides of Canada where she grew up. Today, she is involved in American Heritage Girls and serves as a Troop Shepherd in charge of the spiritual growth of the girls in Troop OR3130 in Grace Baptist Church in Warren, Oregon where Krissy is the Children’s Ministry Director.
Thank you, Krissy, for sharing your love of Scripture with Scouts and Scouters through online workshops!
