You Are A Marvel!

That sounds simple enough...but how will we teach you to become what you are and should become? Every child and teen should know something very special about themselves. Do you really know who and what you are? YOU ARE A MARVEL OF GOD'S CREATION! YOU ARE SPECIAL BECAUSE YOU ARE ONE OF A KIND! Nobody else in this world has your combination of assets. You are unique...from the moment when time began...there has never been a person exactly like you! Everything about you is rare...the rarest of the rare, therefore you are priceless!

Think of how you were put together, your legs, your arms, your fabulous hands, the way you move, the way you talk, the way you think! You are something very valuable and very precious...especially to your Creator and we hope, to yourself as well.

In today's world there are more than 20,000 plus possibilities of a vocation. But even more importantly, what will you become? You could become another Shakespeare, a Michelangelo, a Beethoven, an Apostle Paul, a Bill Gates, a Mother Teresa, a President of your country, an Albert Einstein, OR even another Martin Luther King who said: "EVERYBODY CAN BE GREAT...BECAUSE ANYBODY CAN SERVE. YOU DON'T HAVE TO HAVE A COLLEGE DEGREE TO SERVE. YOU DON'T HAVE TO MAKE YOUR SUBJECT AND VERB AGREE TO SERVE. YOU ONLY NEED A HEART FULL OF GRACE. A SOUL GENERATED BY LOVE."

"When the righteous thrive, the people rejoice; when the wicked rule, the people groan" (Proverbs 29:2).
