I had fun and can’t wait to do it again.

The Mentee’s had so much fun with the games and questions including the gifts being won for “What’s in Your Purse?” And “What’s in your Cell Phone?” At this point it is not an embarrassment of exposing yourself it’s more of an hmm… why don’t you have these items in your phone or in your bag.

I Trusted God And Kept My Focus On The Work In Front Of Me

Dream Again With Isaiah Austin 

Being brought a bad report and still have the hope to Dream Again. Joseph was someone who was loved deeply by everyone. Have you been loved so much the people around you started hating? “Some people only hate you because of the way other people love you” Yes Joseph can relate and sometimes it’s not just by your friends and enemies, in this case, it is His own family. Listen to Joseph’s message.

Genesis 37:5 Joseph had a dream, and when he told it to his brothers, they hated him all the more. 6 He said to them, Listen to this dream I had: This is where we tend to mess up at by telling our dreams to those who don’t have us in their best interest at heart. Which give them all the reasons to hate even more? Our positions in life will make those around us feel inferior to our dreams without a doubt and will not want to serve alongside us due to jealousy, so keep that in mind.

No matter how much you want to look out for people stay away from Dream Killers. Before you allow anyone to strip you for all you got rescue yourself, and be delivered from the hands of your enemies.

It’s ok to be torn to pieces the best part is to pick yourself back up and Dream Again. it is tough being comforted at such a time we often refuse comfort when things are not going our way and that’s the end of that, because you don’t want to hear what anyone have to say, so you sit and dwell on a million assumptions, but God is saying don’t worry I got this. God knows the plans he has for our lives plans to prosper us and to give us hope and a future. God plans are better than we can imagine. Never be uncertain about your dreams. Click the picture and go visit Isaiah.

“I did what Joseph from the Bible would’ve done: I trusted God and kept my focus on the work in front of me. I had left it in God’s hands, which meant I had trusted that He would take care of me. I kept my faith and worked through much adversity to get to this moment” Isaiah Austin, Pro basketball player Isaiah Austin Foundation

 

Here are 7 Questions I asked 10+ Jr High School Students

Responsibility

My chosen topic is responsibility. I’ll be speaking to the junior high school students and I wanted to talk to them about responsibility and show them how important it is to be responsible. It’s very important to learn about responsibilities once you get your priorities in orders you don’t have to turn and ask for help from anyone or beg someone to do something for you. Who do you turn to when you can’t go to neither one of your parents for an allowance or a friend who won’t let you borrow a few things? Are you gonna beat yourself up or will you learn to make better

Who do you turn to when you can’t go to neither one of your parents for an allowance or a friend who won’t let you borrow a few things? Are you gonna beat yourself up or will you learn to make better choices?

The responsibility of your mess is yours. Do you know someone who doesn’t and won’t take the blame for their own mess, but is quick to point the finger at someone because they don’t want to own up to their responsibility? How would that make you look not owning up to your mess? Is it childish? Think of a list where you took the blame for someone else’s responsibility. I have a long list of responsibilities I stood up for that didn’t even belong to me. Was that fair no it wasn’t, but because I know how to love and forgive I loved and forgave that person I put the past behind me, and that was the last time I’ll ever let anyone put a responsibility on me that doesn’t belong to me.

My consistency proves that I am reliable and dependable. It’s a great form of responsibility. Knowing I have to pay bills and keep up with payments lets any lender know I am trustworthy and a lender can be you. Someone may have a hard time at being responsible my best advice is to get an accountability partner or someone you look up to a sibling or a mentor just any person that support and applaud you to do better at your challenges. Guess what? You’re responsible for your own guidance, but who knows you better than yourself and can’t no one make any of this possible but you. I challenge you to take the first step to responsibility. You can start with keeping your room clean or doing chores around the house. It’s up to you to accept the help.

Questions for the students

  1. Write a plan on how you can be more responsible:
  2. What happens when you’re not responsible?
  3. What makes you a responsible person?
  4. Write 3 classroom rules that help everyone to remember to be responsible.
  5. What consequence should be in place for not being responsible?
  6. Write a responsible do’s and don’ts list.
  7. When do you think you should start becoming responsible?
