I'd Choose You

I found a pleasant surprise in my MOPS email this evening- a wonderful book suggestion!  I'd Choose You by Dr. John Trent is an adorable book for all ages.  When Norbert the elephant has a really bad day at school, his mother lets him know that he will always be chosen by his parents and God.  Take a sneak peek of the book below.....




Discloser: I wasn't given a copy of the book or compensated in any way.  This is my opinion, which may differ from others.

The Fruit of The Spirit

"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness,
goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.  Against such
things there is no law." 
(Galatians Chapter 5, verses 22-23)

It's Sunday and we are usually off to church- which we really look forward to, but Mommy was bad. I was lesson planning for tomorrow and lost track of time.  So I told my girls we would do a lesson at home.  I found some wonderful resources on the fruit of the spirit.  My girls really enjoyed the lesson and the activities, so I thought I would share. (Just in case other parents have been "bad" or if you need an anyday short lesson.)

Fruit Coloring pages (The kids colored the fruit and wrote- love,joy,peace, goodness, patience, kindness, gentleness, faithfulness, and self-control on them.)

We sang a song, too!!
I also told the kids that this is a good lesson for grown-ups, because we need the spirit in us to help us grow as Christians.Years ago, I did a wonderful study from Beth Moore that I'd love to revisit.

Enjoy your day!
