My Best Failure
July 6, 2010
It wasn’t a failure, it was a stepping stone.
My biggest failure happened when I tried to teach Sunday School. The kids are great, the staff is awesome and my fellow helpers are the best. However, they have this rule about no yelling at anyone and I tend to put it in “Coach” mode like my dad used to. You know,
“ALL RIGHT! EVERYBODY LISTEN UP!
That’s a no no.
And it was a struggle to find an alternative to yelling and with a room full of rambunctious pre teens that can be a challenge.
But the coordinator found something I’d be much better at.
Now I’ve got my whole family involved. Once a month we do a puppet show for the preschool kids and two weeks later we do one for the elementary group.
That’s how my favorite failure became a stepping stone to my greatest adventure.
