Kids Can Be Blessed invites kids to learn how to put the Beatitudes into practice. Using Jesus’ words as the example, kids will better understand how they can live the Beatitudes and be blessed as they make decisions, interact with others, and seek God’s ways in their daily lives. Sessions include stories and activities to capture kids’ interest and enhance their relationships with each other, with their community, and with God.
