I can’t help it… I really, really love Christmas time.
I love the lights on the tree and the special foods. I love looking for the perfect gifts for the people I care about. I love the music.
I really, really love the music. I love hearing God’s name being praised and His amazing plan of salvation proclaimed while I am shopping at a store that would never otherwise play God-glorifying music.
Christmas is truly a time of peace and joy – not because of the lights and the presents and the ugly sweater parties – but because of the opportunity to slow down and reflect on God’s amazing plan of salvation.
Thanksgiving is just around the corner! Are you looking for a super-fun way to encourage your kids to be thankful? Here’s an idea: A Printable Thanksgiving Finger Puzzle.
Do your kids ever get frustrated because they can’t find verses in the Bible?
Let’s face it: Finding verses in the Bible can be difficult, even for adults. (Anyone else struggle finding their way around the minor prophets?)
But, here’s a super simple, fun way to help your kids to find their way around the Old Testament – Old Testament Bible Bookmarks.
If you are a Christian parent or teacher, you long to help your kids come to love God’s Word.
But, for many children, the Bible is complex and overwhelming. Even finding a verse in the Bible by themselves can be a huge challenge.
(And, if we’re honest, many of us adults hesitate for a second when we are asked to find the book of Philemon.)
How can we help our kids become familiar with the books of the Bible?
Here’s one way – New Testament Bible bookmarks!
Do your kids struggle with worries and fears? Encourage them to look to God – with this easy to make paper globe, featuring 20 different Bible verses.
These paper globes are enjoyable to make and entertaining to play with or beautiful to use as decorations. The verses are truly inspirational, especially for kids (or adults!) who are struggling with anxiety and fear.
This simple craft requires only two printable pages, scissors, and glue. It’s perfect for home or Sunday School use.
Are you looking for a great way to label all of your kids’ belongings? Here’s the solution: printable name tags.
My girls are entering 6th grade and my son is entering 4rth grade this year. I am still homeschooling, but we have added soccer and music extracurricular activities.
Which means… my kids need labels and tags on sports bags, music stands, instrument cases, and even on the inside covers of books.
Starting a new school year can be frightening. I know that my kids will face anxieties and temptations this year.
I wanted to not only give my kids an attractive way to label their belongings, I wanted to also remind them of God’s love for them.
Do you feel like you spend most of your life in a hurry, rushing around in a blur of stress, snapping at your kids – only to regret it later?
Do you ever resent your kids because they are getting in the way of your “to-do” list, then feel guilty for even thinking such a thing?
Would you love to be able to slow down, deepen your relationships, make memories, and enjoy parenting again?
If you are a Christian parent, you have probably told your kids the story of Adam and Eve’s sin. You’ve probably talked to your kids about Jesus Christ’s perfect life and sacrificial death. You may have even told your kids the stories of Jonah and Noah, of Paul and Barnabas.
Yet, there’s one super important story that many Christians parents never even think to tell their kids.
