Today, I must brag on my boys. I'm sorry but it's an important Mom job. All three are Boy Scouts and have worked very hard on their God & Country awards this summer. It is the religious award that Boy Scouts may choose to do but are not required to do. It doesn't give them a rank or merit badges, however it grows them in their faith which we feel is most important. All three boys read over 70 chapters in the Bible and did service projects in order to complete their award. Our church, Westside Christian Church, had a special time of recognition for their work this morning in the service. Pastor Faerber did an amazing job teaching them for 13 weeks. We really appreciate his willingness to help them.
Jonah, a Star Scout, and Jared, a Tenderfoot Scout, both received their 3rd award of this kind. Each award is harder and requires more work.
Jake, our Eagle Scout, received his 4th and final religious award. He is one of only a few young men in our state that have ever completed the entire program.
