Bright Lights - bread baking

We've been having a ball at Bright Lights! A few weeks ago we learned how to bake bread - "60 Minute Rolls." The amazing Hannah Schoenfelder led the baking expo and she did a super job (Those Schoenfelder girls amazing me more and more at their many talents! Hannah's sister Beth leads the group in music at each Bright Lights meeting.) After mixing up our bread, we learned how to share the "Bread of Life" with others...how to witness and present the Gospel. Eliza Tingelstad and I roll-played a situation where she shared the Gospel with me. It was a special night of learning and having fun baking. It was especially good to be reminded of the importance of being ready ALWAYS with an answer of the hope that lies within me.

I'm completely amazed at the girls God has joined together in our Bright Lights group. What a great blessing they are, and I believe they are going to be world changers as they strive to be strong for the Lord in their youth. I pray they will become equipped with the wisdom of God's Word and go out and serve their families, churches and communities with all that they have! Oh, the potential I see in them!

but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.'" Matthew 4:4
