BIBLE STORY
MATTHEW 8:23-27
Jesus calms a storm after
the disciples wake Him
because they are afraid.
SAY THIS:

Who do you need?
I need Jesus.

 
BASIC TRUTH: Jesus wants to be my friend forever.
DO THIS:

 MORNING TIME


When you go into your child's room this month, sing the following to the tune of the "Happy Birthday" song: "Good morning to you! Good morning to you! Everyone needs Jesus. Good morning to you!"

 DRIVE TIME


As you drive, ask your child to name his/her friends. Each time he/she names a friend, take time to say, "[Friend's name] needs Jesus."

 CUDDLE TIME


Cuddle up with your child this month and pray, "Dear God, thank You for giving us water to drink. Thank You for giving us food to eat. Thank You for giving us medicine when we're sick. And thank You for giving us Jesus to be our friend forever. We love You, God. In Jesus' name, amen."

 BATH TIME


Add a toy boat to bath time. Encourage your child to act out the Bible story where Jesus calms the storm. Make waves with his/her hands, say, "Stop!" and then freeze his/her hands so the water can calm. Once the water is still, do it again! Talk about how the disciples needed Jesus when they were scared. And we need Jesus too!

My boys are almost two and four. I’m just beginning to emerge from the fog of baby years and enter the throes of two rough and tumble little beings attempting independence. Most of the time, I feel like we’re making up this parenting thing as we go. But there are a few survival tools I’ve gathered for the days I’m barely keeping my head above water . . .
