Big Announcements!

I have very mixed feelings about today's post. 

First, the exciting news:

I'm pregnant and expecting a baby November 2nd!  

My husband, my daughters and I are all looking forward to meeting our new family member this fall! What a blessing God has made children to be for our lives.

This leads me to the next announcement:

I'm taking a year off from blogging. I plan to start this blog back up in Spring of 2017. The best way to know when the blog starts back up is to sign up today for the emails from this blog.

Taking a break from blogging was a bittersweet and difficult decision to make. Pregnancy and caring for a small baby can be tiring! I want to do my best to prioritize my energy for my marriage, family, and the local Church.

I love sharing with you ideas for teaching children the Bible. This will be a topic that I will continue to think on and work on even though I won't be blogging this next year.
Thank you for faithfully speaking God's Word to the children in your life. I hope that the information that I have already posted on the blog, especially the Teaching Series page, will be a resource for you over this next year.

I would love to hear from you during this next year. Please email me at humbleheartsfamily(at) I would love to hear about what you have enjoyed teaching your children from the Bible, a teaching idea that really worked for your family, or a resource that you found that you think I would enjoy.

(Note, I do plan to post a picture of the baby in November. Also, a friend of mine is working on publishing a picture book about speaking in tongues. If that comes out in the next year, I will also do a post about that.)

Resources To Check Out

I have found these resources helpful while teaching my daughters the Bible. Many of these I have used both at home and when teaching children in the local Church.

 1. "My Goodnight Book", written by Juanita Raybourne and illustrated by Grace Schmidt.

What I like: This is a sweet gentle book to read at bedtime. I always love reading with my girls the Bible verses throughout the book as we prepare for bedtime.

Spring Idea List For Teaching The Bible

We plant seeds. We celebrate Resurrection Sunday and Pentecost, the birthday of the Church. Plants are sprouting and blooming. We spend more time outside with our children. These activities give us chances to teach our children the Bible in daily life. We can use what our children see and experience in daily life as visuals and reminders of God's Word.
