Kenna (at just 9 years old) felt a calling to give back to her community by finding a tangible way to remind people of God’s love. She started making what she calls Comfort Clips.
Her idea was to take a clothespin, decorate it with with scripture and add a fun button. These were then clipped to a decorative board. The displays were given to local homeless shelters and the clips were free to residents who need a little comfort and encouragement. They could clip them to their backpacks, or hats as a constant reminder.
What a blessing! She has learned the JOY of serving others, and following God’s leading at such a young age. And her parents, instead of dissuading her because of her youth, allowed her the freedom to pursue her dream.
Her next goal is to put one in each of her church’s Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes.
Children can do amazing things if we let them! Don’t think they are too young to serve and change the world.

You can Make YOUR OWN Comfort Clips:
They are very easy to do! Gather your family or your Sunday School/Youth Group/Scout Troop together with a few dozen clothespins like THESE from Amazon.Jenna painted some and left others plain. Then using permanent markers (like Sharpies) they can write fun sayings such as:
- You Are Loved
- Super Star
- Have a Great Day
- You’re the Best
Jenna wrote scriptures that she found in her “Jesus Calling: 365 Devotions for Kids” book (that I found at Amazon), but any scriptures would do. Naturally shorter would be better! There isn’t much space on those clips 🙂 Jenna glued buttons but you could add stickers, small silk flowers, etc. as well to decorate the clips.
ALSO: These might be PERFECT to sell for fundraising for your kids’ group 🙂
