Praise Challenge
It is so easy to get caught up in the trials of the moment and forget God's blessings. When we are isolated, it is even easier to fall into that trap. Many of us are homebound due to illness, caregiving, job or other isolating circumstances. Let's get together and praise God by taking on specific challenges. Not only will we exercise our "Praise Muscle" but we'll be exercising our minds as  well.

Our brains have five functions:
  • memory
  • attention
  • language
  • visual-spatial skills
  • executive function

  • Seek Novelty
  • Challenge Yourself
  • Think Creatively
  • Do Things The Hard Way
  • Network
