Every child deserves a champion – an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection, and insists that they become the best that they can possibly be. Rita F. Pierson
As the Her Voice babies grow up into beautiful and healthy little people, we encounter the good ‘problem’ of how to give them love and attention so that their mamas can get the most out of our weekend sessions. A few of our team members attended the Hillsong Colour Conference around the time that we were discussing what the Her Voice ‘children’s ministry’ would look like…
At the conference they spoke of children in refugee camps that may possibly never see “normal” life outside those camps. That means that a whole generation would be without an formal education, which is why there are people making it a point to bring that to those children within those camps.
Fortunately our ladies aren’t raising children in refugee camps, but we were again reminded of the importance of our roles as parents, adults and influencers in the lives of the generations that follow ours. When we understand the value of this responsibility, the children will also understand the value of themselves. Which is why we gave them a name.
Because, as little as they are, they have voices, too.
Things to say that matter.
Thoughts and personalities that are already evolving into the men and women who will one day take care of this world in our place.
Thank you to all those who have already invested in the lives of our children and the children you find yourself in contact with wherever you might be. Let’s be champions who raise champions.
