When you go into your child’s room, say, “Good morning! I want to give my [name of child] a great, big hug because God loves us with a great, big love!”
As you bathe your child, ask them, “Can you blow bubbles in the water? Can you tap the top of the water with your hands? Can you scoop and pour the water? Can you put your head under the water?” Then say, “Wow! You can do a lot of things. But guess what! God can do ANYTHING! It’s true! That’s one of the reasons we can trust God. God can do anything!”
Cuddle with your child this month and pray, “Dear God, thank You for loving us and using us in Your plan. It doesn’t matter how big or small we are. It’s all about You and what You can do. And You can use [name of child] and me, no matter what. You are awesome, God, and we love You. In Jesus’ name, amen.”
As you drive or take a walk, take turns saying the two sentences of the memory verse. For example, you say, “I trust in God.” And your child says, “I am not afraid.” And then you both say, “Psalm 56:11.” Now switch and say it all again! Talk about how every person feels afraid sometimes, but when we trust God, we don’t have to stay afraid.
