Happy Family Friday!
Below you’ll find “Jesus Calms the Storm” lessons and hands-on activities you can do as a family! I hope these are a blessing to you as you read God’s word together and talk through fear and faith.
Earlier this week I read an article titled, “5 ways to Disciple Your Kids and Love Your Neighbor Through the Coronavirus Pandemic.” It’s stuck with me this week as I ponder how I will use our unexpected extra time at home with our kids. “At the end of the day… this too shall pass. It may pass like a kidney stone, but it shall pass. In the meantime, may we always be looking for ways to disciple our kids, even in the storm. Be wise and be loving… Our children are watching how we respond to this crisis. Remember that our actions will tell them more than our words. If you feel yourself succumbing to fear, pray through it. Pray through it with your kids even! Show them what it looks like to struggle with fear, and ultimately trust in God. This is such an amazing opportunity to show our kids what true faith in the midst of fear looks like. These opportunities don’t come around too often, so milk it for all it’s worth, to the glory of God.”
For God’s glory!
