I was so envious of kids with cool toys that were allowed to crawl under the chairs and play with them
I remember this, but, their parents were looked down upon, and gossipsed about as being spiritually weak.
I was raised strict like you, someone already mentioned my FUN GAME! We got to mark down a mark each time Jehovah, Jesus, whatever was said. What made it even WAAAAY more fun was it didnt just have to be by the speaker from the platform (to be read with ENTHUSIASM) it could also be if someone said it when they answered. Fascinating Stuff.
