We had a tea party yesterday and all dressed up. The boys were super hero’s and my daughter and I put on old bridesmaids and pageant dresses. I couldn’t breathe and they wouldn’t zip on me. Ha!
I didn’t intend for it to be a Bible lesson but it was— we talked about Colossians 3:12 and what is most important to clothe ourselves with. Greater than any costume or dress, it’s most important to put on compassion for others, kindness for one another, humility in our hearts, gentleness in our words and actions, and patience in all we do.
I needed this as much as they did. Hope everyone is doing well ♥️
Here’s a video on how we do a verse of the week. If you want to do this too, you can tailor it to meet your needs! See below for more options!
As you can see in the video, we do our verse of the week on a dry-erase board in a very central part of the house. If you would rather not mess up the walls, hang the scripture on the fridge or above bathrooms or kitchen sinks. Really anywhere that is frequented would work!
Praying this will help us all to hide God’s Word in our hearts- big and small!
I have always loved apples. Anyone who knows me knows of my love for apples.

Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6
There is only one right way, God’s way, the way of life. Since it is axiomatic that early training secures lifelong habits, parents must insist on this way, teaching God’s Word and enforcing it with loving discipline consistently throughout the child’s upbringing. -John Mac Arthur The MacArthur Bible Commentary
Ps- I truly believe training up children begins at home but never want to minimize the impact church and church activities at a Bible-believing, Bible-teaching church can have on a child. Remember what my first full sentence was? “My go church all night!” Church involvement and attendance is so incredibly important to supplement what we teach, model and value at home ♥️
