We must never underestimate the role that our mothers play in teaching us about God, about His Word, and about salvation. From a very early age, a mother is preparing us for life. Teaching us about our Creator and Redeemer is part of God's purpose for mothers, and we must appreciate the godly mothers and honor them for taking up the challenge of preparing us for life.

  • 1. Parent Ministry Ideas- Appreciate Mothers (Mother’s Day Idea) www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com www.CreativeHolidayIdeas.com
  • 2. We must never underestimate the role that our mothers play in teaching us about God, about His Word, and about salvation. From a very early age, a mother is preparing us for life. Teaching us about our Creator and Redeemer is part of God’s purpose for mothers, and we must appreciate the godly mothers and honor them for taking up the challenge of preparing us for life. www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com www.CreativeHolidayIdeas.com
  • 3. Resources You’ll need one set of these for every three youth: • Pair of clean (not smelly) socks • Hard boiled egg • Plastic cup OR • A set of puzzle pieces from a small puzzle or cut out from a postcard or magazine and • a blindfold for each group. www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com www.CreativeHolidayIdeas.com
  • 4. What to do (Option 1) 1. Divide the youth into groups of three. 2. Give each group a pair of socks, one hard boiled egg, and a small cup. 3. One person in each group must wear the pair of socks, one over each hand. 4. Place the hard boiled egg in the cup and then place the cup is in the sock-covered hands. www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com www.CreativeHolidayIdeas.com
  • 5. 5. Give the following instructions: “The person with the socks is a friend who has come to you with a problem. He or she needs to peel the hard boiled egg so that no shell remains on it and place all the shells in the cup. Your friend may not remove the socks from his or her hands. www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com www.CreativeHolidayIdeas.com
  • 6. Discuss the problem briefly then take action and help your friend. When your group finishes, remain where you are and quietly observe the other groups still working a their task. No other instructions will be given. Go!” www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com www.CreativeHolidayIdeas.com
  • 7. What to do (Option 2) 1. Divide the youth into groups of three. 2. Blindfold one member of each group. This blindfolded youth can talk and use his or her hands. 3. Assign another youth in each group who can ONLY talk. 4. The third youth in each group can use hands, but he or she CANNOT talk, and CANNOT touch the puzzle pieces. www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com www.CreativeHolidayIdeas.com
  • 8. 5. Give the following instructions: “The objective is to be the first group to put the puzzle together. Your friend may not remove the blindfold. Discuss the problem briefly then take action and to help your friend complete the puzzle. When your group finishes, remain where you are and quietly observe the other groups still working a their task.” www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com www.CreativeHolidayIdeas.com
  • 9. Take It to the Next Level Discussion • What were the instructions given? • What were the rules of the game? • What resources did you have? • What limitations did you experience? • What strategy did you team use to accomplish the task? www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com www.CreativeHolidayIdeas.com
  • 10. Make it Spiritual In most cases you will find the unhandicapped persons peeling the egg and doing all the work or the blindfolded person being taken through a complicated process to complete the puzzle. The less obvious solution and the point of the task is to enable the individual to become free to help himself or herself. www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com www.CreativeHolidayIdeas.com
  • 11. This is best accomplished if the two helpers remove the socks from their friend’s hands, or the person able to use his hands, but not touch the pieces to remove the blindfold thus freeing their friend to complete the task. (The directions only stated that the person with the socks or blindfold could not remove them.) www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com www.CreativeHolidayIdeas.com
  • 12. There were three ways around the problems: 1. Do it for the person 2. Instruct the person on how to accomplish the activity or 3. Enable the person to do it him or herself. www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com www.CreativeHolidayIdeas.com
  • 13. This the role God has given parents. When we are born, we are very dependent on them to do everything for us. But very soon, they will start releasing some of that role and teaching us, then enabling us to do things for ourselves, to overcome our limitations. We gain strength, knowledge, skills, and wisdom to be the person God created us to be. www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com www.CreativeHolidayIdeas.com
  • 14. It would be a sad state to never grow and mature and never be able to care for ourselves and someday care for others. But the role of parents is not simply to equip us for life with knowledge, skills and wisdom. We were created as spiritual beings so that role also extends to preparing us for our relationship with our Creator and Redeemer. www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com www.CreativeHolidayIdeas.com
  • 15. Make it Practical 1. Make a list of things you have learned from your parents – skills and knowledge. 2. What have you learned from your parents, by example and by their teachings about God? 3. What is our responsibility related to learning from our parents? www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com www.CreativeHolidayIdeas.com
