Day 30 | Pointing Your Kids to Christ



For starters let me say, I am so thankful for God's grace and mercy in my parenting.  There are SO many times I screw up and swear if my kids turn out "right" it'll be a miracle... But God, right?!  

But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved—and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.  Ephesians 2:4-7

He is the one that changes hearts and does a work in people.  Graham and I are doing our best with our kids, but even on our best days we need His help! I'm so thankful that the God we serve is greater than all and can work through us (as imperfect as we are) to point our kids to Himself.

Each morning, Graham leads a Bible study with the girls over breakfast.  We creatively named it "Bible Study for Breakfast".   Here are some of our favorite gospel-centered children's Bible studies:

***I highly recommend each of these:

      Day 28 | Scripture Memory Cards



      About a month ago, I shared some scripture memory cards I made for a discipleship group I lead.  Click HERE to check out those cards and to grab the free printables.  I also made verse cards to go along with my 31 day series.  They are mostly the same verses, but just coordinate with my series graphics.

      **I recommend printing these cards on white cardstock.  I laminated my cards, punched a hole in the corner of each card, and used a ring to hold the cards together.

      Day 27 | Growing in Godliness as a Couple


      Today, I am sharing a few books that Graham and I have read together.  These books aren't your typical self-help books for marriages, they are gospel-centered and challenging.
