“The Right Size” ~ A Children’s Story for Anyone Who’s Ever Felt They Weren’t Enough

Click the photo to read the children's story "The Right Size." It's for anyone who's ever wondered if they were "enough."

I hope you enjoyed this story, and that it spoke to you.

It’s so easy to look in the mirror and feel that we’re just not enough — we’re not the right size for the job — but we must ignore the mirror and look to the Potter who made us.

Some of us may appear to be ordinary and plain, but we’re not.

God made us in His image, and He’s extraordinary. 

God made each of us extraordinary.

He made each of us the right size.

“Jesus Walks with Me” Rhyme ~ Jesus Coloring Page

Jean Wilund : February 19, 2014 9:28 pm : Bible Study Tools for Kids

 Jesus Coloring Page

Jesus walks with me!

Jesus walks with me!

Every day while I laugh and play

Jesus walks with me!

 

This rhyme is one of my students’ favorites! And it comes with Motions:

Walk in place as you recite the first two lines.
Join your fingertips together to make a big “sun” with your arms and move the sun across the sky from one side of your body to the other as you recite the last two lines, continuing to walk the whole time.

What the kids love most about acting out this rhyme, however, is that we do it over and over again, faster and faster each time until we simply can’t do it any faster. By then we’re laughing too hard anyway. (Great way to work out their wiggles, too! ~ Smart teacher, huh?)

Three Ways to Teach Your Kids the Bible

Three Ways To Teach Your Kids The Bible

Teaching children the Bible is one of the greatest honors and most important responsibilities we adults have, particularly us parents.

It can also be a little scary.

What if I teach it wrong?

What if I’m the reason they decide not to trust Christ? 

It’s enough to make you want to throw up your hands and turn the responsibility over to someone else — someone better, someone more gifted.

But, please don’t. 

Yes, you’ll make mistakes.

We all make mistakes.

Trust me. I know. I’ve made them!.I have plenty more mistakes ahead of me, but if we let those mistakes stop us, we’re rejecting God’s call on us.

If God calls you, He’ll equip you.

PS–if you’re a parent, you’ve been called.

So, how do we teach our kids the Bible? more »
