|This is the logo I designed for our Ladies Group "Cheerleaders for Jesus"!|
In our little church we are all encouraged and allowed to speak up when God puts something on our hearts to do so. So I spoke up and said...you're a cheerleader for Jesus!!! It all blossomed from there.
Now previous to this we ladies had met one time for a luncheon and had decided it was something we would do once a month for fellowship and a wonderful time in the Lord. So it all came together that we would start a ladies group called "Cheerleaders For Jesus", meet once a month for lunch in the fellowship hall, after lunch we make handcrafted items, to use in these lovely gift baskets that will be taken to someone who is sick, shut in, hurting emotionally, or wherever God sends us. We also include other items like little cookies, crackers, lotions and pretties in the baskets.
So far we have made pretty Christian inspirational bookmarks, refrigerator magnets and little sachet cupcakes from vintage chenille. Since I am the one in the group that loves to do the crafty things and I have an abundance of crafting supplies and ideas, I have been blessed to be the leader of the crafting portion of the meetings. Right down my alley!!! I love love love it, and have been so truly blessed to see some of the ladies "come out of their shells".
There is an amazing older lady in the group, she is a beautiful spirit that always fills us with such joy to be around her. Watching her make the crafts is a heartwarming experience as you can see the sparkle in her eyes, and she reminds me of a sweet child just learning to do something wonderful!!!
Here are some photos of us girls and the recipients of the baskets that we cheerleaders make and deliver to these precious people!
