|Ashleigh reciting her verses to Mrs Julie at AWANA|
To complete her book, she had to recite 6 verses. And she knocked it out of the park. The six verses she had to recite were:
Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God. - Romans 5:1-2
Let me ask you only this: Did you receive the Spirit by works of the law or by hearing with faith? Are you so foolish? Having begun by the Spirit, are you now being perfected by the flesh? - Galatians 3:2-3
Remind them to be submissive to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready for every good work. - Titus 3:1
Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you. - Ephesians 4:32
Though formerly I was a blasphemer, persecutor, and insolent opponent. But I received mercy because I had acted ignorantly in unbelief. And the grace of our Lord overflowed for me with the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus - 1 Timothy 1:13-14
And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith. -Galatians 6:9-10.
This was a huge accomplishment for her as she received her Emblem 8 tonight. This is her first year in Awana and she is a few years younger than the rest of the girls. So she's very proud of herself.

|The smile says it all !! So proud of you!!|
Tonight was also a theme night - Mustache Night. The kids donned their best "mustache" in the hopes of winning a "Golden Awana Buck".. Unfortunately, Ashleigh did not win the buck but she had a lot of fun participating.
Ash came in 2nd place. Her friend, the girl with the "hair beard" won.. But I couldn't help but laugh at the similarity between her mustache and a certain scene out of Forrest Gump.
