Our Little Sponge [part 2]

Several months ago, I posted a video of AG answering some questions that we call Q & A Christianity.  This is a great way for her to internalize sound doctrine.

A couple of weeks ago, I recorded AG reciting all of the Q & As she has memorized so far.  At first she didn't understand each question an answer, but we are finding that she is starting to make connections and she even asks questions about what she is learning.  For example, tonight she asked, "Why do we have a soul as well as a body?" We love that she is starting to make connections and we can tell that she is gaining understanding.  It's so cool!

Our little sponge is learning so much!  Just check out this video...
