Project One Provides More Than Just Home Repair

Saturday, May 6th, was an eventful day at the office of Awesome in Action! Not only was Project One, a community service offering free home repair through Crossroads Church, fixing up screens and steps, but also, a whole team of kids was helping to review and reflect on Nick’s newest book!

Awesome in Action could not have asked for a more thorough and friendly group of children, aged 9 mos to 14 yrs.

The kids all read through the book, answered questions about the story line, and voted on a title choice for the new adventure.
