This year is Abigail's first year in Speaker's Club and today was her first speech. The purpose of today's speech was to introduce herself to the group using the opening, closing, and three body points
Abigail choose to use her namesake, Jon's mom, with a her own sense of humor. The child cracks me up. She is only twelve and I'm constantly amazed at how comfortable she is in front of groups of people. Granny, be sure to have a tissue handy!
Caleb also gave his first speech of the season, he was assigned a persuasive speech, he was given the topic of Christianity and Vegetarianism. He was to argue if the 'Thou shalt not kill' applied to the eating of animals using Biblical examples and teaching.
It will be fun to see what topics the kids get to research and argue this year!
“Pardon your servant, Lord. I have never been eloquent, neither in the past nor since you have spoken to your servant. I am slow of speech and tongue.” The Lord said to him, “Who gave human beings their mouths? Who makes them deaf or mute? Who gives them sight or makes them blind? Is it not I, the Lord? Exodus 4:10-11
