Brand New Bible Study for Preteens – Nehemiah

Good morning readers!

This study has been on my heart for a long time.  God first led me to this book of the Bible about a year ago.  Since then, I’ve studied it on my own, read through it with my children, completed a women’s Bible Study on Nehemiah (A Heart that Can Break by Kelly Minter), and have poured back over the contents of this book as I’ve written this study.  My prayer is that it will be used of the Lord in ways I can’t even ask or imagine (Ephesians 3:20) for His glory.

The purpose of the Bible Studies for Preteens series is to get kids into the Word.  Often, kids this age read devotions or listen to youth leaders speak, but don’t take time to read Scripture for themselves.  As parents, we have a great opportunity to fill our children’s days with good things.  Truly there could be no greater thing than pouring over God’s Word and realizing it is active and speaks directly to each person.

The other day, we drove my friend’s daughter to her soccer game.  All told, we spend 2 1/2 hours either driving to, sitting at, or riding home from the game.  I’m sure there are other games or practices throughout the week.  While these are good things with many benefits, I wondered how many of our children spend anywhere near that time on the really good, eternal things of God.

With so many adult Bible Studies, I thought it high time we had more Bible Study choices for our kids!

BTW…I may record some free video sessions to go along with this study, so be sure to visit this blog, so you’ll be the first to know when those are available and about all upcoming events.

For His glory,

Kathy :)

Mother’s Day Sunday School lesson for preschoolers

Mother'S Day, Mom, Flower, Font, Love, Greeting, Child

I created a simple lesson for this Sunday (Mother’s Day) and thought someone else might need it too.

Lesson:

Mother’s Day lesson

Blessings,

Kathy

Preschool Sunday School Lesson
Mother’s Day – Mary (Jesus’ Mother)
Luke 1:46, John 19:25-27, Acts 1:14
Memory Verse: …The Lord bless you and keep you… Number 16:24

Bible Story:

Today is Mother’s Day. Our lesson today is about a very special mother.

Show the story picture.

Tell the children to point to the baby in the picture. Tell them His name is Jesus, and invite them to say “Jesus.”

Tell the children to point to the mommy in the picture. This is Jesus’ mother. Her name was Mary.

Have the children pretend to cradle a baby in their arms.

The Bible teaches us some things about Mary:

• Mary praised God – When Mary found out that God had chosen her to be the mother of His one and only Son, she was so happy! She sang a song of praise! Read Luke 1:46, “My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior.”

• Mary loved Jesus and Jesus loved her – Mary was there at the cross when Jesus was crucified. She loved Jesus and He loved her. Read John 19:25-27, “but standing by the cross of Jesus were his mother…When Jesus saw his mother and the disciple whom he loved standing nearby, he said to his mother, ‘Woman, behold, your son!’ Then he said to the disciple, ‘Behold, your mother!’ And from that hour the disciple took her to his own home.”

• Mary prayed – After Jesus died on the cross and rose, Mary continued to pray. Acts 1:14, “All these with one accord were devoting themselves to prayer, together with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus, and his brothers.”

Games:
Play “Mother Says” instead of “Simon Says.”

Role Play: Practice Being a Good Mother – Bring in baby dolls, clothes, towels, wash cloths, soap, diapers, etc. Show the children how to take care of a baby.

Craft: Mother’s Day Card-paint tulips using plastic forks on a card that reads, “Thanks for helping me grow!”

National Day of Prayer

 

 

Don’t let this National Day of Prayer pass you by without taking some time to pray for America.

I am praying from the bottom up…

Lord, may revival come and let it begin in me, and in our our families, our churches, our cities, our states, and our country.

Amen

I have Nehemiah on my mind today.  I love how he confessed the sins of his people before God.  Confess here means he acknowledged before God that collectively, they had been doing wrong.  He pleaded for God to have mercy on them.  Doesn’t that sound like what we need to happen in America?

Read Nehemiah 1:5-11.  You could insert the word “America” in the place of “children of Israel.”

Click here for some great resources on specifically How to Pray for America.

National Day of Prayer Task Force

The following prayer was written by Dr. Jack Graham and was read in unison today during the national event at noon. 

Heavenly Father,

We come to You in the Name that is above every name—Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. Our hearts cry out to You.

Knowing that You are a prayer-answering, faithful God—the One we trust in times like these—we ask that You renew our spirits, revive our churches, and heal our land.

We repent of our sins and ask for Your grace and power to save us. Hear our cry, oh God, and pour out Your Spirit upon us that we may walk in obedience to Your Word.

We are desperate for Your tender mercies. We are broken and humbled before You.

Forgive us, and in the power of Your great love, lift us up to live in Your righteousness.

We pray for our beloved nation. May we repent and return to You and be a light to the nations. And we pray for our leaders and ask that You give them wisdom and faith to follow You.

Preserve and protect us, for You are our refuge and only hope.

Deliver us from all fears except to fear You, and may we courageously stand in the Truth that sets us free.

We pray with expectant faith and grateful hearts.

In Jesus’ name, our Savior.

Amen.

– 2015 National Prayer by Dr. Jack Graham

Teddy at the Beach Cupcakes

A while ago, I let my daughter scroll through recipes at the Pillsbury website.  We printed the ones she liked and made them into a cookbook.  From time to time, we try out one of the recipes from her cookbook.

Recently, we made these Teddy at the Beach Cupcakes.  We just used a box mix (as the recipe from Pillsbury suggested ;) and colored our frosting using blue food coloring.

We decorated with umbrellas (meant for drinks), teddy bear cookies, fish gummies, and sprinkles.

Have fun!
