Not long ago, I posted a story that Moms of Faith (momsoffaith.com) featured on their website. The story was about helping kids deal with bullies through creative dramatics in a workshop called Holy Boldness Batman!
At First Church in Berkeley Springs, there is an after school program called GoFriends where approximately 130 kids from the community gather. Each week, we do games and role play with a small group of 6-8 kids where they are encouraged to discuss times that they were the target of a bully, or just things that make them feel bad or sad.
In a nutshell, we teach children that they are each a Masterpiece of God and it is our differences that make us special and loved! Having Jesus as our friend can give us courage to be brave, or bold, when we find ourselves in a scary situation. And when they are scared, all that is needed is simply to ASK God for boldness, and He is there! Hence the words: Holy Boldness Batman!
Batman is an visual image of strength and a fun part of the exercise.
So, here's the God Stuff: A reporter read the post I sent to Moms of Faith! Last night, GoFriends was on the news! Check it out!
