Well, here it is. The “Disney” video I made to show my youth. You may want to just fast forward to the end (around 4:45)!
This is how I told them I was pregnant with Baby G~ through a video slide show “promoting our mission trip” but ending at the Haunted Mansion** for the big announcement!
**Disclaimer. We aren’t morbid folks. I promise. Almost 4 years ago I told my youth I was pregnant with C-man. I did it at a cemetery. We went for “Destination Unknown” (where I take the youth group to an unknown location in town to have a lesson based on that location) to the city cemetery. The lesson was on life after death, so after the lesson I asked the youth what they thought the opposite of death was… ‘life’ was their answer. I said, “yeah, but some people think birth is the opposite of death. And… we’re going to have a birth sometime in February of 2009!” They all screamed and started texting.
Fast forward to a few months ago. The youth told me if I were to ever get pregnant again I had to tell them in a cemetery! This was the best idea I could come up with!! 🙂
