Our Middle School Students' Dreams


"I want to help find a cure for cancer."

"I want my family to be in the same room as each other without fighting."

"I want to help stop the violence in our world."

These were some of the dreams that middle school students shared as we discussed what we would do if we could move mountains with faith the size of a mustard seed.

The Middle School Students of Good Shepherd ventured to Big Bear October 23rd-25th. We enjoyed hiking to the top of Castle Rock, sliding down the alpine slide, and squishing tight to play a game of sardines. The theme for the weekend was - Jesus is the rock to build our lives on, God’s Word is a light which guides us and with faith as small as a mustard seed, we can move mountains.

Early adolescence is time of vast imagination and wild dreams. I believe that we (adults) can to learn much from them. We can to learn to not take life so seriously and to sit and wait for God to reveal himself and his plan for us. We often forget that Jesus was most critical of those that thought that they had everything right and were living in the most righteous way.

Take the time to open yourself up to other generations to learn, laugh and appreciate God’s wonderful design. Albert Einstein once said, “Once you stop learning, you start dying.” God calls us to never stop learning from others, never stopping growing spiritually and never stop serving others.

Very nice post. It is so very important to remember how much we can learn from our kids, & not just vice versa
