From the Mouth of a 14 year old

Did I tell you that we are teaching the 13-14year old Sunday School class? Well we are. It's great and hopefully we're actually teaching them something along the way. The things they say crack me up. Today I was teaching and at the end of every lesson every week Jeff asks them to pick something that they can become perfect at (praying, taking out the trash, etc). We don't get specific and we don't ask them to share what they picked but we like to think they pick something that can actually help them in life. So I started today's lesson asking them what we ask them to do at the end of every lesson. They look at us with blank stares so I finally tell them "remember how we ask you guys to pick something that you can be perfect at?" Then one of them says (totally serious) "I have honestly never heard you say that." We have been teaching for a month so they've heard it 3 or 4 times and we try to emphasize. It's funny and sad all at the same time but that's what you get with 13/14 year old kids.


  1. haha I love it! I love 13 and 14 year olds. Good luck Jaclyn! I am sure tou are a great sunday school teacher:)

  2. bwahaha, that was my favorite thing about teaching--the funny things they would say. It was really hard to discipline sometimes, because they'd just make me laugh.
