October Newsletter

This week I am celebrating Humble Hearts' 1 year Blogiversary!!!!

A year ago I started this blog.  I have enjoyed so much sharing with you ideas for teaching children the Bible.  I have grown as a parent and also grown in my walk with God. That growth comes from the guidance that the Bible supplies. Thank you for reading, and more importantly, thank you for teaching the children in your life the Bible. What you are doing is SO important!
If you have any interest in blogging, some resources that I have found helpful are: 
Blogging On the Side (Blog and Facebook Group)
How They Blog (Blog and Podcast)
Highlights of this last month:

  • This last month I started the "Jesus Christ's Birth and Childhood" series.  Over the next year I will have teaching ideas that cover Jesus Christ's birth, childhood, earthly ministry, death, resurrection, and ascension.

What to look for in October:

  • Continuing with "Jesus Christ's Birth and Childhood" with: Anna and Simeon Praised God, The Magi Looked For the Savior, Joseph Obeyed, Jesus Grew
    • How To Make A Bible Verse Journal 
    • Toddler Tuesday
    • A Parent's Heart  

    From the Archives: 
    In October the world spends so much time declaring the power and might of scary things.  We need to continue to declare God's might and power to our children. You may find these two posts helpful:

    Praying With Your Toddler - Toddler Tuesday

    Teaching your toddler to pray is a part of teaching them to acknowledge God in their life. As a toddler starts to talk he or she can pray to God.  This is such a beautiful thing we can teach our children. As I compiled this list, I was encouraged with ways my own family could grow in praying more throughout the day.

    1. Learn to Sit: When your toddler is around another person that is praying, teach your child how to sit quietly.  He or she can learn to keep hands and feet quiet while someone is praying.
