Woman At The Well

Teaching about Jesus talking with the woman at the well (along with teaching about Niccodemus and John the Baptist) have been great ways for my husband and I to talk with our daughters about Holy Spirit and the new birth. It has been really exciting!

Theme Verse: “God is spirit” John 4:24, print out verse

Song:  "By The Well" by Luke and  Brigette Hill, listen here
To the woman by the well
Jesus said “God is spirit"
Worship God in spirit and truth

Parent Preparation: Pray, John 4:1-43, John 3:16, Romans 10:9-10  For further reference please read “Acceptable Year of the Lord” 4.1

"By The Well" a children's Bible song

Looking at "Frances Hook Picture Book"

This children's Bible song is from the record of Jesus talking to the Samaritan woman at the well. 
"But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshipers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth." John 4:23-24 KJV
My husband Luke and I wrote this song while teaching our daughters about Jesus talking to the woman by the well in John chapter 4. For related teaching ideas check out "Woman At The Well" teaching ideas.

By The Well
by Brigette and Luke Hill

To the woman by the well
Jesus said, "God is spirit"
Worship God in spirit and truth.

Listen here.  (If you have trouble hearing it, please let me know.)

 Print out from here.
 This song is shared with the intent for use in the home and in the local Church.

Why You Should Sign Up For the Humble Hearts Quarterly Newsletter

I am starting a Quarterly Newsletter. It takes 5 seconds to sign up.

On this website I like to give ideas for teaching the Bible and encouragement to believe the Bible. I'm not much of a sales woman when it comes to this blog, and I don't normally write posts with "You Should..." in the title. But I want the information on this blog to reach people. If you like the information on this blog, here are 5 reasons why you should sign up for the Quarterly Newsletter.
1. Each season you will be reminded of posts that will help with the upcoming months. For example, in the Spring you will be reminded of posts from previous years in the Spring that relate to the Resurrection.
2. Receive links to other helpful resources. (blog posts, coloring pages, ideas for visuals, etc.) 
3. Facebook and Pinterest are inconsistent with putting posts in your feed. This way you can make sure you don't miss anything on the blog.  
4. If in the future you take a break from social media (Instagram, or Pinterest, or Facebook), you will still keep up with what is happening on the blog
5. Receive only 4 emails from the blog all year (Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall).

What Is My Identity? - For A Parent's Heart

I've had a lot of questions about my identity since becoming a parent. Do I identify as a stay at home mom? Do I hold onto my identity from my job as an occupational therapist? Do my husband and I identify according to our household income? Is my identity defined by my baby using clothe diapers and nursing?  Am I a "dance mom" because my daughters are in a dance class?

 What does the Bible say about my identity? 

Galatians 3:26-28 WTJ*
As a matter of fact, all of you are sons of God through the believing in Christ Jesus. In fact, as many of you as were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is in you neither Judean nor Greek. There is in you neither servant nor freeman. There is in you neither male nor female. In fact, you are all one in Christ Jesus.
I am a child of God. 
We are one in Christ.
Being a child of God is a bigger identity than any parenting category I might fit in. Even though the difference between male or female and servant or free is huge, we are all one in Christ.
