“Rein” down the love …
Posted by Tiffany Cooper
… As the senior pastor’s wife, I feel called to love and care for our staff and their families. I especially enjoy doing special things for our staff kids. I feel strongly that we should accentuate the positive aspects of life in ministry. It’s my goal that our staff kids would view ministry and the church as a fun and cherished experience. Each year I do more to celebrate their value as staff kids.
Without a doubt, Christmas is my favorite time of year. It’s also my favorite time to spoil our staff kids. Last year I made individualized stocking full of goodies and gifts and this year, we have gone Pinterest crazy. We are filling gift bags with Pinterest discoveries! I’m really excited! Here’s one of my favorites:
Check out these cute Root Beer Reindeer we just made yesterday! (Props to Brooke for assembling them for me.) Aren’t these little guys adorable?
I’m so excited to see their faces! No matter your age, these are fun. Best part, you don’t have to break the bank to make an impact. Root Beer Reindeer are inexpensive but the impact is huge, they will feel celebrated.
I encourage you to seize the opportunities to love your staff kids, even if the only staff kids are yours. It’s important for you kids to feel acknowledged and valued in their role. “Rein” down some extra love and celebrate them this season and throughout the year.
We would love to hear from you! How do you love and celebrate staff kids at your church?
