I’m a mom of 4 year old twins and a baby. I’m passionate about finding ways to point my kids to Jesus and my hope is to share some fun ideas to encourage other moms to do the same. Repeat them again and again to your children. Talk about them when you are at home and when you are on the road, when you are going to bed and when you are getting up. – Deuteronomy 6:7
Since my twins were very little, I’ve loved coming up with ideas to help them memorize God’s word. I started when they were 2 by making a poster with picture symbols to help them learn John 3:16. Planting seeds of truth in their little hearts is so important. I take Deuteronomy 6:7 literally and try to use every opportunity to teach them who their savior is. Not to memorize for the sake of memorizing but to teach them about who God is and how he wants us to live. Obviously memorizing scripture is a small piece of what God wants us to do as parents, more importantly WE must ask for God’s help to LIVE IT OUT and let them know that we also need a savior. We can’t save our children but we CAN point them to the ONE who can! My husband is a Children’s Pastor and we together have been more passionate then ever to see our kids built up spiritually in these days so they can to do mighty things for God’s kingdom now, not just when they become adults.
What’s Kid’s Small Group Time? My husband and I lead a weekly small group of adults AND kids. We share a meal as families and then the adults share and pray while the kids have their own small group time. My husband and I really wanted our kids to benefit from a small group in the same way that adults do and have it be an intentional time for them instead of childcare to just “keep them busy and from killing each other”. We wanted to maximize their time weekly to worship God through singing, learn scripture together, reinforce scripture with crafts and activities, build relationships with each other, and pray for one another. I’ll be sharing what we’re doing with their time and hope it encourages others.
Pointing them to Jesus. I’ll also be posting things God has taught and is teaching me personally on this parenting journey.
