The Shape of Me and Other Stuffby Dr. Seuss is a super fun book about shadows.  Check out a chop and read it to your child.  Look at all the fun shadows together.  Next, go outside on a sunny day and look for your own shadows.  Talk about how light makes shadows and God made the light!

Psalm 89:11, NCV

FAMILY DEVOTIONAL:

God made everything.  That’s the simple truth that your children will be learning in June and July.  This week we are talking about Day 1 of Creation:  God made light and dark.

Since God made everything, let’s turn Drive Time into a fun game of, “Look What God Made!”  You will get a “Creation Station” card.  Place it on your rearview mirror.  As you drive along, take turns naming things you see by saying, “God made the (name what you see)” and then see if you can name what day it was made.  Look at your “Creation Station” hanging card to check your answers.  Soon you’ll be a creation pro!

June Week 1

Birth – 4 year olds

 

VERSE FOR JUNE

“You made the world and everything in it.”

Psalm 89:11, NCV

FAMILY DEVOTIONAL:

God made everything.  That’s the simple truth that your children will be learning in June and July. 

Those pretty flowers you passed the other day – God made them.  That dog curled up at your feet – God made him.  That sweet little child you tuck into bed each night – God made her.  God made everything.   When was the last time you really thought about that?  When is the last time you sat outside, looked around and said, “Wow!  God made all this!   Thank you God!”  It’s awesome and overwhelming to think about all God made.  And it’s even more incredible to think that He made you.  And to think about how much He loves you. 

Kindergarten – 5th grade

 

VERSE FOR JUNE

“Faith is being sure of what we hope for.  It is being sure of what we do not see.”

Hebrews 11:1 NirV

FAMILY DEVOTIONAL:

WEEK 1:  Faith is believing what Jesus did can change me.  Our kids have incredibly beautiful imaginations.  They see shape in the stairs of the night sky.  They make up stories about unicorns and fairies.  They pretend to be the MVP of their favorite pro team.  With their imaginations, kids dream big and imagine impossible dreams.  But at some point every kid realizes stars are simply balls of gas, unicorns aren’t real and their odds of going pro are slim.  Sometimes reality can be disappointing.  But sometimes reality changes us for the better.  The real story of Jesus – how he really walked on earth, how he really dies for our sins and how he really rose again – gives our kids something to believe in that will see them through the ups and downs of life. When kids allow the story of Jesus to become part of who they are, it can impact every decision they make.

BOTTOM LINE:  The story of Jesus changes everything.

MEAL TIME:  Ask a kid:  How can you point others to Jesus with the way you live your life?  Ask a parent:  Whom do you know that lives their life in such a way that it makes people want to know more about Jesus?

APRIL WEEK 4

 

Birth – 4 year olds

 

VERSE FOR APRIL

“’Love the Lord your God with all your heart…love your neighbor as yourself.”

Matthew 22:37-39 NIV

FAMILY DEVOTIONAL:

Jesus teaches us the greatest, most important things God wants us to do:  Love God and love people.

Read Matthew 22:34-40

Cuddle Time:  Cuddle up with your child and pray.  “Dear God, thank You for always loving us, no matter what.  You showed us how much You love us when You sent Your only Son, Jesus, to be our friend forever.  Help us learn how to love You and love people, the way You love us.  I want (name of child) to grow up loving You and people more than anything.  In Jesus’ name, amen.”

Kindergarten – 5th grade

 

VERSE FOR APRIL

“But those who trust in the Lord will receive new strength.  They will fly as high as eagles.  They will run and not get tired.  They will walk and not grow weak.”

Isaiah 40:31 NirV

FAMILY DEVOTIONAL:

WEEK 4:  Keep Calm and Persevere.  Read Hebrews 12:12-15

BOTTOM LINE:  When life gets hard, remember you can help others persevere.

BED TIME:  Read Acts 1-2.  Ask God to remind you of His presence and help you overcome the tough situations that you’re facing.

PARENT TIME: When math homework gets hard, some kids push through and other kids give up. When the new soccer move is tricky, some kids keep practicing and others want to quit.  What is it that keeps one kid trying when another declares it too hard?  Perseverance.  It’s this refusal to give up that helps kids push through when life gets hard.

Often kids need encouragement from other trusted adults to persevere.  Maybe a math tutor or a neighbor can help figure out math homework.  A soccer coach or family friend who used to play may have a new approach to learning that new move.  When life gets hard for your son or daughter, consider if a trusted adult might be able to help them persevere.

VERSE FOR APRIL

“’Love the Lord your God with all your heart…love your neighbor as yourself.”

Matthew 22:37-39 NIV

FAMILY DEVOTIONAL:

Peter and John have no money to give the lame beggar, but they do what they can and help him walk again in the name of Jesus.

Read Acts 3:1-16

Bath Time:  Buy some rectangle kitchen sponges at the grocery store and cut them into heart shapes.  Give them to your child as a surprise during bath time.  Talk about how the heart shape reminds people of love.  The way we treat people can remind them of love too.

Kindergarten – 5th grade

MEAL TIME:  What is the hardest thing you’ve ever had to do?  How did you get through it? 

ASK A PARENT:  When has someone helped you preserve?

 PARENT TIME: When math homework gets hard, some kids push through and other kids give up. When the new soccer move is tricky, some kids keep practicing and others want to quit.  What is it that keeps one kid trying when another declares it too hard?  Perseverance.  It’s this refusal to give up that helps kids push through when life gets hard.

APRIL WEEK 2

Birth – 4 year olds

 

VERSE FOR APRIL

“’Love the Lord your God with all your heart…love your neighbor as yourself.”

Matthew 22:37-39 NIV

FAMILY DEVOTIONAL:

More and more people start following Jesus.  Everyone shares what they have so that no one in the church goes without what they need.

Read Acts 2:42-47

Car Time:  When you get in the car, talk with your child about where you are going and the people you will see.  Brainstorm ways you can love the people where you are going so you’re ready when you get out of the car.  Grocery store?  A big smile and “have a nice day” works.  Getting a haircut?  Sitting still and saying “thank you” are great ways to show some love.  Play date with friends?  Sharing and giving a hug or a high five are always good ideas.
