Last week, I was able to make a dream a reality by hosting my first faith and fitness Vacation Bible School program (VBS). It was three days long and included components of two amazing ministries—Kids' Holy Yoga & Revelation Wellness. Our VBS program was called “Warrior Week: Building Warriors of Truth” and our focus was training up the children physically, mentally, and spiritually to be warriors of God. Our verse for the week was: “Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil” Ephesians 6:22.
Each day we discussed a different tool of a warrior, such as the belt of truth, the breastplate of righteousness, the shield of faith, the shoes of peace, the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit.
We included a 30-minute Kids’ Revelation Wellness class to our line-up of activities. This class included games and activities that got kids moving and was a great way to add a little movement while learning about how physically strong a warrior needs to be. We also practiced 30 minutes of Kids’ Holy Yoga as well. Each day ended with stretching, breathing, and meditating on what it means to be a warrior of God.
This was a great way to fuse faith and fitness together in a fun and exciting way for young children.
