  From Hearth To Heart

For Women Play by

17 pages

Three 5-7 minute skits that will enhance any woman's program.


God has gifted women to be keepers of the hearth where friends and family gather for food and conversation in the traditional center of the home. The three drama skits in FROM HEARTH TO HEART demonstrate how women use their homes as a base for spiritual growth, ministry and missions. But of course, no woman is perfect, and the poignant lessons of "Share and Prayer," "Mary and Martha" and "The Wild VBS Bronco" allow the audience to chuckle at themselves while gaining valuable spiritual insights geared to today's busy lifestyles. Simple sets.

This is just what you need if you are doing a study on the "fruits of the Spirit": love, joy, peace, patience, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness and self-control. These nine playlets will bring home the truths of God's love toward us. Each one runs about 10-15 minutes. The cast size varies from 2 to 5. Jean shows us what God's love is like in "The Sacrifice." Mike and Carol have "Joyful Woes" as they reminisce about their 27 years together. And in "Tongue Tales" we see how gossip really can hurt. Use them to highlight your worship service or youth meetings.

In today's visually-oriented society, what better way to get the Christian lifestyle across than to show your teens how dirty sin can be! In this unique half-hour skit, the Demon literally smears dirt on the kids' T-shirts when they are hurtful to others, watch questionable movies, skip church, etc. The Spirit is standing by, however, offering a better way to live and handing out clean T-shirts when the kids "clean up their act." A unique and fun way to get some important messages across. Perfect for touring to other churches or for youth rallies.
