  • The Holy Spirit gives us power. Many times, kids feel powerless. They can’t always make the decisions they’d like to make. There may be situations in their lives that are out of their control, such as a friend moving, their divorce, or a loved one with a terminal illness. Help kids see that even though they sometimes feel powerless, the Holy Spirit gives them power to do amazing things.
  • Think About:When have you felt the Holy Spirit’s power in your life?
