Being myself is what got me to where I am. Jeff Hardy
Last week, our students created their own design of their coat of arms. Today, they are making the final copy. The coat of arms is a reflection of who they feel they are. It was wonderful to see our students eagerly putting themselves creatively onto the drawing board.

“Listen with curiosity. Speak with honesty. Act with integrity. The greatest problem with communication is we don’t listen to understand. We listen to reply.

Pay attention! That is hard for our young people. In this class, we taught them the harmfulness of randomly blurting out their thoughts. They can speak their hearts out but they should learn to listen first.

“You opinions about me does not change who I am.” ― Lailah Gifty Akita, Think Great: Be Great!
To be successful, you need to know who you are not just from the external or from the mirror, but from who you are in the inside. Our inside is what makes us strong. Our students learned about themselves doing the “Coat of Arms” activity. In their coat of arms, they describe their dreams, their favorite things, who they admired, what’s unique about themselves, their motto. In the middle of their coat of arm, they stick their very own photos – to say “This is Me. And I love who I am.”

In our class, we used the activities of Balloon Badminton and Dropping the Cups games to teach perseverance. Never Give Up. It is fun to keep going and fighting to get what you desire.
雅各书 James 1:2-5 Perseverance 忍耐
2 My brothers and sisters, you will have many kinds of trouble. But this gives you a reason to be very happy. 3 You know that when your faith is tested, you learn to be patient in suffering. 4 If you let that patience work in you, the end result will be good. You will be mature and complete. You will be all that God wants you to be. 5 Do any of you need wisdom? Ask God for it. He is generous and enjoys giving to everyone. So he will give you wisdom.
