I am currently reading a book with a friend, called Growing In Christ. (It is e.x.c.e.l.l.e.n.t, if you are looking for a Truth filled book to study with a friend!) Although this book is not written on a child's level, there are several concepts that are so powerful, I knew I wanted to somehow modify the lessons and share them with our children.
I wanted to teach the girls a lesson about grace and the gift we have been given in Christ.
(Because to be completely honest, I didn't understand grace and the gospel until I was in my early twenties. )
We want to share Truth with our children as often as possible. Sometimes, it happens naturally in our every day conversations and other times, I get opportunities to share with activities such as this:
ps- If you are reading this and you have any questions... we would love to hear from you! Please email us and I'll provide our contact information. It would be a joy to talk about the gift that Jesus has given to us!
"For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith- and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God- not by works, so that no one can boast."- Ephesians 2:8-9
