On Saturday Grant and I attended Youth Specialties 'The Core' conference. For me it was a great reminder of why I do what I do and that I am on the right track and that it's okay that my students don't always listen or wear pants with juicy across the bum.
For Grant, the conference was like a revelation into the lives of 6th grade boys. Apparently my suggestions of talking and praying for eachother have just not been going as well in his male small group as they have with my girls.
Me: I am so sorry that I just haven't been able to give you some good advice on how to connect with middle school guys.
Grant: That's okay honey. It's because you know what a pumice stone is for.
