Mama’s K.I.S.S. #64–Sleepovers with Titus 2 Widows

0 Flares 0 Flares ×


As you know, if you’ve been reading, for quite some time, I’ve occasionally been running little installments called “Mama’s K.I.S.S.” I know that lots of readers could give many more and far more creative ideas than I can offer, but these installments are just a few tried and true and mostly old-fashioned ideas for putting service hearts in our kids.  This is number 57  of a list of one hundred ways we train our kids to serve. K.I.S.S. is an acronym for “Kids In Service Suggestions”.

Before anyone goes all bonkers about sleep-overs with adults, let me just say that I do know the crazy world in which we live and let me preface by saying that we knew the widows very well and they were Titus two older women. But one of my teen daughter’s favorite things all through the teen years was having spend-the-night parties with great and faithful widows in the church.  She and Mrs. Jo Hicks loved to watch movies into the wee hours of the morning (think the Megan Follows “Anne of Green Gables” and the like). But Hannah also loved to host groups of older and widowed saints in our cabin. She will treasure the memory of Mrs. Dorothy, Mrs. Ruby and Mrs. Carol all bunked-out in the cabin. If you know these women, you know they experienced side-splitting laughter into the early hours. Hannah was in her element and no one in the group was within 50 years of her own age. 

I really don’t know of a better way to put Titus two into action than this one. It took some hospitality prep work. Hannah learned a lot from older saints. But I think they were blessed, too. One of them asked Hannah to be her traveling companion to Paris. That took about .00003 seconds to decide. These friendships serve to pull kids out of peer-dependence and into service. I’d recommend!
