I have a 2 year old. She came home from church one day with a magnet that said, “Love God with all your heart.” (taken from Deuteronomy 3:6) We looked at it, read it once or twice and stuck it on the fridge. Then promptly forgot about it.
A few days later, we were making a card for Daddy. She was supposed to be writing “I love you, Daddy” but instead began to chant, “Love God with all your heart!” I was dumbfounded! My little toddler was quoting scripture!!
So, right then, I knew it was time I actively put God’s Word in her heart! I started doing an alphabet letter of the week, a craft and a verse. This is the highlight of her week (ok, that might be an exaggeration) and I’m pleased to say she can remember all the verses we’ve done so far!
As a furious blogger and internet lover, I get most of my ideas online. There is so much good stuff out there! One of my favorite blogs is No Time For Flash Cards and really she inspired this blog. I love seeing what real live moms and kids are doing together and I hope my little blog will inspire you and your children, too!
If you’d like to see our exact “schedule” read my first post, What We Usually Do.
