GS LEADER SHARES HER THOUGHTS ABOUT THEIR EXPERIENCE
Wendy Johnson, leader of Girl Scout Troop #60544 in North Canton, OH, shared that her Girl Scouts recently completed the requirements for “Birds of the Air,” one of the patches in the Bible Basics RP3 series. Wendy explained that it has become tradition for her troop to spend time together on Bible study at least once during Lent. This year her girls are high school sophomores, and they used the “Birds of the Air” curriculum and read three lessons on Ravens, Eagles, and Sparrows. Wendy shares her thoughts about the experience here:
We did the study on Ravens, led by an adult volunteer from our troop. She had done much background reading and had really enjoyed all she learned. Then the girls and I did a small craft project, which we followed by dinner. They were keen to get to the Eagle unit and we talked at length about situations that cause worry to them - it was a great opener for their conversation. It led them to be even more aware that they as scouts are there to support each other. The girls do not attend the same school, so knowing that someone else is ready to pray for them in stressful times during their day had a big impact. Lastly, we made the pinecone feeders and completed the Sparrow study, giving them the reality check that all teenagers need not to be over concerned with their appearance. Thank you, again for the opportunity to use these studies. My troop and I very much enjoy the time we spend focusing on God's word.
