Ten Ways Being a Cheerleader Prepared Me for Ministry

Inspired by  Landon Whitsett . . . 

My name is Jan and I was a High School Cheerleader.  I’ve thought many times how well those years of jumping with pom poms prepared me for professional ministry.  Here are The Top Ten Things I learned:

1- It’s good to be flexible.

2- Sometimes you have to yell “A little louder now.”

3- Sometimes you have to yell “A little softer now.”

4- Keep your hair out of your face.

5- Standing in front of crowds can be unnerving, but pick a focal point and keep going.

6- It helps to have rhythm.

7- One word:  teamwork.

8- Sometimes you have to smile whether you feel like it or not.

9-All of us stand on the shoulders of others.

10- Sometimes you fall on your backside.

    Part of me hopes this post is unfinished so you can share your wisdom.

    But another part hopes that this is it, because it’s stinking hilarious. Unbelievably hilarious.
