Spiritual Application

Serving God with the talent and skills He gave each of us.

This is a theme revolving around gingerbread girls.  God made us each different so that we can each serve the Lord in a unique way. 

What better time than Christmas to be encouraged to serve the Lord and share the good news of Christ's birth in the wonderful way God intended us to.

Theme Verse Suggestions

I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made... Psalm 139:14
