Planning our first meeting

The Purpose, Goal, Verse & Prayer of Keepers as stated in the handbook:
Purpose: To learn to walk in the steps of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, day by day, moment by moment, in every situation.
Goal: To have a teachable spirit so that I can master the different crafts and skills which will enable me to become a competent, well-balanced Christian girl who loves God, and who will one day be a proper helpmeet and keeper at home.
Verse: 1 Peter 2:21, “For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow in His steps”
Prayer  Dear Lord,
              Teach me the way to make each day a stepping stone as I learn to walk in your steps, and with your help I will make of my life a harmony of love, joy, and service to Thee, my family, and others.
I am so thrilled to join other moms that wish to encourage the skills & growth needed for our daughters to one day be keepers of their own homes!
Today, once everyone arrived, everyone opened their handbooks, went over the above goals and did a quick overview of the handbook, pointing out the 5 different skills areas: Biblical, Creative skills, Homemaking, Knowledge & skills, Nature, Others & Recreational Activities.  We also discussed badges and the various types of badges that can be earned. 
Next, we went over our proposed schedule for this year. We are going to meet the first and third Friday of each month from 2-4. We will take breaks during the school holidays.
