Florea: I'm not sure parents dread the summer as much as they have to get used to a new routine and spend more time organizing schedules. But, yes, there is added pressure to keep kids engaged and active over the summer. No parent wants his or her child sprawled on the couch for months watching TV and playing video games. And kids don't want that either.
Florea: The Take the Plunge challenge focuses on a child's mind, body and spirit. We want families to be active together and create memories. At the same time, we want to see our members grow closer to Christ. As parents help their children memorize God's Word and reach out to others in God's love, the kids will see God move and understand He can use them to further His kingdom.
