There once was a guy named Jamal
His heart is huge – never small
He’s friendly and kind
A great friend to find
He sticks with you for the long haul.

You don’t have to find words that rhyme with a kid’s name.
Melissa’s a girl who can jive
She has energy, passion and drive
Her smile lights the place
I see god in her face
Our youth group rocks ‘cause she’s alive

10. Praise them on their facebook page
