 Hello Crossroad Kids families! 

My name is Jill Wiggins and I've recently stepped into the role of Children's Ministry Coordinator. I look forward to seeing your smiling faces on Sunday mornings. 

Hope you are having a fantastic summer break and looking forward to the start of school.

Jill's Family Resources 
Improve Kids Memory Recall 

Summer is a fun time that families spend precious quality time together, playing at the pool, and playdates with friends. 

With school starting soon, I look for fun ways to improve my children's memory recall to prepare for classroom activities. 

Here is a list of memory games that you can play at home and adjust depending on your child's age. 

 Find them here.
Healthy Fruit Smoothie 

My kids are picky eaters, so I have to find creative ways to make sure they get their daily fruits and veggies.

I will definitely make this healthy smoothie for my kids as a healthy snack!
