Here’s the verse we are teaching our friends at church!
We learned this verse to celebrate Easter! (Sorry, I am a week late posting.) We are enjoying the Iowa spring!
Giana is ready for Timberlake Kidz this week with her new verse!
And even though Mariel isn’t in the bigger class yet, she showed us tonight at dinner that she learned it too!
Here is Mariel’s verse she learned in conjunction with her presentation about rocks! Much of her information came from creation.org. I loved hearing her little three-year-old voice said “igmeeous” “metamorffffffic” and “setamenteree.” Her volcano was also a big hit! But most importantly, she learned about The Rock.
She misquoted the reference in the video. We’ll work on it
So proud of Giana! She won the People’s Choice award for lower elementary at our homeschool group’s Expo tonight. She worked very hard on her presentation about the Lifecycle of the Butterfly!
She also learned a very important truth from the Bible. I pray that for the rest of her life, she thinks about this verse every time she sees a butterfly.
We have been reading “You and Me Forever – Marriage in Light of Eternity” by Francis and Lisa Chan with our couple’s growth group. It is an amazing book that is available for free at www.youandmeforever.org. Like in his previous books, Pastor Chan shares scriptural truth with an eternal perspective that makes you want to tear down every idol built up in your life.
The book gave me a very different perspective in the responsibility of raising kids. It also gave me a new perspective in an old verse: “Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them!” (Psalm 127: 4-5).
The best way to be reminded to show kindness to others is to remember how much kindness you have been shown. It becomes much easier to forgive when you remember how God has forgiven you. (Also, sorry for the background noise. Lucius was playing his LeapFrog behind me!)
