Favorite Bible Verse:

Joshua 1:9 "Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged; for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go."

The school's theme this year is "Connected" (John 15:5).   Share a time in your life when you saw the importance of being connected to Jesus.

Christmas is all about Jesus! When the Christmas trees start to go up and the never-ending holiday to-do list needs to get done, it can be easy to lose focus on the real meaning of Christmas. I feel the most connected to Jesus at Christmas services. It is our yearly reminder that our loving God would offer up his only son to save us from the consequences of sin.

What do you dislike that everyone else seems to like?

I do not like spicy food.
