I can not express enough how wonderful the GLU kits are. I have a few MCEC books and lessons plans from 2012-2014 time frame (before the kits) and now the Seasons of Change kit. I use these books and lessons in so many ways. I can offer small groups here in the Airmen and Family Readiness Program Manager Office, use the books for activities on Family Days, offer children sessions at YRRP, and I have even taught a lesson with a small group using Heart Strings at the funeral of AMN who died of suicide. We even let families sign out the books and plans if it would benefit them at home. I love how the messages transcend ages and have used the books and lessons from ages 1-18. I wold love to to broaden our library here at the DE ANG so others can continue to benefit from these wonderful kits and themes that correlate with military life. Thank you!
