In April, I am picking a relevant scripture each week to focus on… yes, I realize April is halfway over this year, but I don’t mind finishing something I never started. 😉
My conversations with my kids will be about the scripture, and bonus! – I’ve picked a craft to help us (and you!) talk through spiritual things.
Don’t forget – you’re the primary influencer in your kids’ lives, so be intentional about sharing God’s truths with them! I’d love to hear if you have success with these. Share in the comments!
This week, I did a science experiment to make it rain, inspired by the experiment from I Can Teach My Child. I’ve been itching to do this experiment myself, and it’s been hard to hold back because of a certain baby having a growth spurt and keeping me busy. 😀
The scripture focus this week, along the “April Showers” theme, is:
he gives rain on the earth, and sends water on the fields: (Job 5:10, NET)
The Lord provides good things for all people, even if they don’t know Him or love Him. This is the idea of “common grace”. I want my kids to really see God’s goodness reflected in creation!
This whole chapter of Job is fascinating and comforting and revealing of God’s works. I highly recommend putting it in your quiet time this week.
Here’s a fun video of us performing the experiment! See how Emma is sticking out her tongue the whole time!? Ha! She’s really listening, don’t ya think? Samuel took his job as DP very seriously and wanted to create a soundtrack for the end… so one of his original songs is included! It was fun to make the YouTube video together.
