Follow the Sun & Learn from the Sunflower

Sunflower takeout plantersLearn from the SunflowerI’m lucky enough to get to spend time with the young women (ages 12-18) at my church every week. About a week and a half ago, we talked about the amazing ability the sunflower has to follow the sun throughout the day.  I applied that to faith and following God.  I gave the girls the handout at the right–I made it with the daisy from Tailored Flourish/Waiting for Summer–it’s a different color though. Then we made cute little pots out of take-out containers and planted sunflower seeds in them.  The picture/layout is of my friend showing her finished pots.  I was at her house the other day and the seeds are sprouting and look so cute in their little pots.

  1. Designing, making and planting in the little pots are a wonderful way to help young ladies (and gentlemen) affirm and grow in their faith as their sunflowers grow. The beautiful layout will be a constant reminder to them as well.

  2. That’s a wonderful piece Andrea. And I love how you’ve presented it. That section of the daisy does look so much like a sunflower.

  3. I love the idea and I love the layout. It gets me to thinking about how my friend and I can draw from nature for inspiration for one of our scrapbook challenges.

  4. I have just been searching for meaning relating to sunflowers.
    My friend has been diagnosed with cervical cancer and we prayer for her this week. A lady had a word saying “i just see a huge sunflower over her abdomen”. I have prayed and asked the Lord what it meant and simply He said “She is turning to the SON”. I have shared you beautiful words with her! Thank You so much.

    I would love the notes from your study if this is possible!!

    Take Care
