We have officially kicked off the Believe series. Materials are available for you and your children in the form of devotional books, storybooks, and coloring books. We're also sending an email with a "family page" for adapting the children's curriculum for the home.
Week 1's truth to believe is:
I believe the God of the Bible is the only true God - the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Here is the thing about children and believing in God - they naturally believe. Obviously, age and understanding bring different observations and questions to different children, but kids are very ready to accept the idea of an Almighty Creator who loves them. This makes talking about believing in God the easiest "as you go" teaching there is...
Anytime you talk about God or to God in front of or with your children you are teaching them that God exists. When you read your Bible, when you meet with the church - you are teaching them that God is real. Challenge yourself to change the way you speak about the world to reflect your faith and have more, "as you go" moments this week.
- instead of talking about nature, talk about God's creation
- instead of saying you are blessed, talk about how God has blessed you
- instead of just saying, "goodnight, I love you," tell them that God loves them too
You believe in God.
What are some other ways you can infuse that faith in your everyday life and conversations?
