Sharing the Love

Sunday, February 10th, 2013

We’re focusing on Love (or at least trying to!) during February. I wanted to share some of the ways we’re doing that.

In addition to commemorating the enigmatic Saint Valentine, I wanted to encourage the kiddos to use the “Valentine’s Day season” as an extra opportunity to show love and kindness to others.

I liked this Valentine’s Day Count Down Chain I used last year and decided to make one this year too. On each of the links is a Bible verse about Love. AlsoI added an activity or loving act for the girls to do. I just wrote those next to the verse.


Easter Crafting

Friday, April 27th, 2012

“Now Thomas (also known as Didymus), one of the Twelve, was not with the disciples when Jesus came.So the other disciples told him, “We have seen the Lord!”But he said to them, “Unless I see the nail marks in his hands and put my finger where the nails were, and put my hand into his side, I will not believe.” John 20:24-25

“A week later his disciples were in the house again, and Thomas was with them. Though the doors were locked, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you!” Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here; see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it into my side. Stop doubting and believe.” John 20:26-27

Here’s a craft I came up with quickly during the first week of Easter. Thankfully the girls are VERY easy to please. Some scissors and glitter and they are happy! I was impressed with how well Lily cutting skills have improved over this year. Clara is more into “mosaics” if you know what I mean…

And a hymn we enjoyed during that week:

Let Us Love One Another

Saturday, February 11th, 2012

“Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.” I John 4:7-8

We’ve enjoyed getting ready for Valentine’s Day. Each year I’m able to find a little time to make something to add to our collection of Valentine’s decorations that I get very happy to put up during this bleak cold time.


St. Valentine’s Day Countdown

Wednesday, February 1st, 2012

Can you believe it’s already February? With my new found love for Valentine’s Day, I’ve actually been looking forward to this month for a while. So I thought I’d share a couple ways we’re counting down the days to St. Valentine’s Day.
