Kinza and I know without a doubt that we have the best youth group. We’re definitely not biased. LOL. Part of what helps us have as great of relationships as we do, is the Bible study we girls have together. We started this last fall when our church and youth were facing some hard things, and it is obvious this was God’s timing. We generally have an evening together every other week where we discuss the lesson for the night and share our hearts and encourage each other. Then we end the night in prayer groups; praying for each other and various requests. We are going through a book called “Salvaging My Identity” by Rachel Lovingwood and Jennifer Mills. It’s very practical for youth girls!
Recently it was Kinza and my turn to host the Bible study, so we decided to have supper along with it. We served Low Country Boil and fruit cups. It was such a fun evening of fellowship and encouragement. I encourage you to get a group of girls together to study God’s Word and share with each other.
The topic for the evening was on Conflict. We are all plagued in some way with conflict with ourselves and other people. We discussed that most often the things that cause conflict in relationships are the very things that could make a relationship beautiful. Things like cultural differences, different ways of thinking, and such. We also discussed ways to overcome conflict- pray, be humble and admit failure, be willing to change, etc. Remember, where there are people there will be conflict, so let’s do what we can to handle it correctly when we are faced with it.
Low Country Boil:
1.5 gallons of water
1/4 c. Old Bay seasoning
1 T. salt
4 lbs. small potatoes
2 lbs. kielbasa, cut in 3″ pieces
12 ears corn, halved
4 large onions, cut in chunks
5 lbs. shrimp
Boil water, Old Bay seasoning and salt. Add potatoes and cook for 10 minutes. Add keilbasa and cook 10 minutes more. And corn and cook 3 minutes. Add onions and cook 2 minutes. Add shrimp and cook one minute. Strain the water off and then dump all the food on a table.
Serve with cocktail sauce, barbecue sauce, sour cream, butter, and salt.
We included fruit cups and sweet tea in the menu as well.
