For writing, we've been having our 11 year old son write short Bible devos. He also gives a speech on various topics once a month for a speech group. Those efforts paid off :)
This weekend my husband (who is also our minister) had to go out of state to help his best friend who had had a stroke. Typically the men of the congregation fill in when he's gone. This time, my son volunteered to give the evening sermon. The men were suprised but happy to let him do it. He did absolutely amazing. I was/am so proud of him!
We posted his sermon online if anyone wants to read it. (I just checked the dashboard and it's been viewed 93 times since last night!)
