Speaking of Flags…

Last week, I checked out an America-themed book from the library. As I read it to my kids before bedtime, I got tears in my eyes as the book showed the statue of the soldiers pushing up the flag at Iwo Jima. It honestly puts tears in my eyes thinking about it now! Our flag […]

Do not merely listen…

Continuing on our theme of respect, we are learning to respect God’s word!  I have a couple verses we will be sharing about God’s word, and we started with a new memory verse… Do not merely listen to the word.  Do what it says.  James 1:22 I really want to impress on Elias that God’s […]

Your Turn: He doesn't believe me!

He is more awesome!

He is more awesome than all who surround Him.  Psalm 89:7 I chose this verse for Elias and me to work on so he could begin to respect God in his heart – nothing is more awesome than God… no one deserves respect, adoration, and devotion more than God! Hey – God is so awesome, […]
