From the very beginning we have chosen to train our children to sit quietly with us during the church service. Sure, there were plenty of times we had to take a back row seat during those fidgety toddler years, but for the most part, the kids understood that this was a special time and they needed to be quiet. (BTW…a bag of Fruit Loops handed out very slowly, one–at–a–time– can work wonders!)
Now that they are older, I want my children to listen and learn from the sermons. I found this really great Watch Me Grow Sermon Journal that I wanted to share with you. There are three different cover designs to choose from or you can download it instantly and put in your own notebook. You can check them out at the following site: http://www.evangelismstuff.com/watchmegrow.htm
We can look through our children’s sermon notes through the week and discuss anything that they didn’t understand or even gain a better insight into their spiritual development. We could use these during our Family Devotional times.
For me, this is a must have on the Christmas list this year! I know they will be so much more meaningful than the plastic toys that will just fill the toy box in the coming year.:)
