"I am a Gift" Curriculum
“I AM A GIFT” was created for Journey Community Church in San Diego, California as a means to set a foundation for the vision for the body, relationships and sex as revealed in the teaching of Theology of the Body. This six session curriculum was implemented and got rave reviews from teachers, parents and children involved in the Kids’ Ministry in this church community. Activities and worksheets are easily adapted for family fun!
The BIG IDEAS:
God did the best job ever when He made me.
No one else in the world is just like me.
God invites me to be closer to Him than I am to my mom, my dad, my sisters and brothers and my best friends.
When I live close to God, it is the happiest and best kind of life.
I find God’s directions for living the happiest and best life in scripture.
My body is important because it is through my body that people know all of who I am.
My body and my person cannot be separated.
Relationships with people are gifts but never meant to satisfy my deepest hopes and wants.
My body-self speaks through my actions.
My body can speak God’s love.
I choose to have an attitude of love towards family, friends and others knowing that love is what they are made for..
Jesus made a gift of self and I find the best and happiest kind of life by giving the gift of myself to God and others.
