LOVE can be ‘PREACHED’ with a SMILE
As an author, I have published two very well-known books: “Smile Bandages Cover a Multitude of Pain” and “Smile Bandages, Loving the Unlovable.” My third book, which is soon to be released, is entitled “Smile Bandages, Repairers of the Breach”. Smile Bandages “Stompers” is a ministry for young boys; their counterpart, the Smile Bandages “Jewels”, is a ministry for girls. Both of these dance ministries are comprised of young children; ages fifteen and younger who are under my leadership and guidance.
I’m persuaded that I am answering the call of God by taking my dance troupes with me to the nursing homes to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The children and I smile and encourage the seniors to smile back at us as a testimony that love can be preached with a smile. God reassures me that by taking the children along with me to cheer-up the seniors, that not only are we experiencing a refreshing of His love, but everyone who witnesses our love for them is being touched by God’s love.
