Memory Verse Monday - Luke 6:31 on The Golden Rule

This week's verse is the golden rule. It is a wonderful verse to memorize because it applies to almost anything...sharing, respect, giving, loving, kindness and much MUCH more!!

"Do to others what you want them to do to you"
-Luke 6:31-

This verse will be so helpful to Sweet Angel as she spends her days playing with and around her little brother. When you are 3 it is hard to think about how tricking your brother into giving you a toy might not be a nice thing to do. But considering how it would feel if it was done to you really does the trick :o) 

This is the beginning of learning how to consider others and become less selfish. I love it when I catch her putting Little Buddy's needs above her own. It makes Mommy so very proud!

Reading God's Word

When Sweet Angel was dedicated to the Lord at our Church she received many gifts. The best one by far was this children's Bible given to her by my wonderful in-laws. They desire for her to know Jesus just as much as we do!

There are many different children's Bible's out there but we love this one. It has great pictures, is easy to read and has a large number of Bible stories.

The Beginner's Bible: Timeless Children's Stories

It has all of the main stories like Noah and the flood...


...and Jonah and the whale.

But this Bible is extensive and also includes stories that I didn't even remember like the story about the young king Josiah.

We read one story each night at bed time. I would strongly encourage you to do this with your children. It doesn't take long to read and we do our best to point out the moral of the story. You don't have to be a theologian to do this. We stress things like: God loves you, God made everything and everyone, God answers prayer, God can do anything and God has a plan for you.

When we get to the end we just start right back over again. I'm sure we have been through the whole thing at least 4 times. I have noticed that the more we read her the Bible the more she wants to read it! She takes it out and tells me all about the stories. She even likes to read it to her beloved bear.

The best part of all is that each night she is reading and learning about her savior Jesus!        

Come back tomorrow for Tasty Tuesday! I am going to share a great homemade recipe for a meal that lots mom's buy frozen :o)
