December Newsletter


Recently On the Blog:
 
What to look for this month:
  • Introduction of "Jesus Christ Our Savior" teaching series.  I am so excited about this! Over the next year of 2015 I will be posting ideas for teaching children about Jesus Christ. It will be a great year!  This month I will do an overview of the teaching series.  The last week of December I will post the first teaching ideas.  This way, you can review them and teach them to your child in January. Throughout the series I will be referring to "The Acceptable Year Of The Lord" by Walter J. Cummins. If you don't have this book, I strongly suggest getting it.  I have found it extremely helpful to refer to when teaching children about Jesus Christ.
  • "4 Verses For Parents in 2015". Technically this will be posted next month, on January 1st. A great way to start the first of the year.
Past posts that may be helpful this month:
This month we have been having fun listening to the CD "Home Where the Word Lives" by Cindy Bernardini. 

Have a great Holiday Season!

Bible Verse Journal: God Gave His Son Part 1


A Bible Verse Journal is a collection of Bible verses you have learned as a family.  It is a chance to do an art or craft that reinforces part of the record that your child learned.

This Bible verse journal, "God Gave His Son", is focusing on the life of Jesus Christ.  Part 1 is Jesus Christ's birth and childhood. See Jesus Christ's Birth and Childhood Teaching Ideas Overview for teaching ideas while making this journal.

Thank You (Yes, I really mean you!)


"We give thanks to God always for all of you, constantly mentioning you in our prayers, remembering before our God and Father your work of faith and labor of love and steadfastness of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ." 1 Thessalonians 1:2-3
I have something important to say to you: "Thank You!"
Thank you for speaking God’s Word to the children in your life.
Thank you for telling them the truth about God.
Thank you for telling them the good news about Jesus Christ.
Thank you for loving them with God’s love.
Thank you for praying for them.
Whether you are speaking God’s Word to your daughter, your son, grandchild, niece, nephew, the children in the local Church, or your neighbor kid:
You are giving them something precious.
You are telling them about their powerful Creator and their loving Heavenly Father.  
You are making them wise unto salvation. 
You are giving them the best kind of love.  
You are doing something important.
You are needed in the body of Christ.
Thank you. 
"As a matter of fact, God set the members, each one of them, in the body even as He wanted to. If they were all one member, then where is the body? As a matter of fact, there are many members but one body." 1 Corinthians 12:18-20 WTJ
