​Kid Time (the time our YOKE Folk spend with middle school kids outside of YOKE club) is the heart of YOKE. It’s where real life change takes place as mentors have the opportunity to have spiritual conversations with kids that they are working with.
One of our YOKE volunteers, Kristin, who is serving in her second semester at Powell recently shared a story about a Kid Time experience.
Life was getting to me. Anxiety took my energy and consumed my thoughts. I lay in bed telling myself I couldn’t let this get the best of me. I had plans. Kid Time was tonight. So I got up, got out of the house, picked up one of our sweet students and went to movie night. 
The living room was full of friends, laughter, and weird smells. We watched a movie, played Reverse Charades and Pie Face, and had an awesome time together. God used the students and my YOKE team to give me joy and the gift of friendship.

  • I am thankful for YOKE. 
  • I am thankful for Kid Time.
  • I am thankful for friendships with my great students.
  • I am thankful that God uses imperfect people.
  • I am thankful that God uses the students as a blessing in my life.
