June 2018 - Toddlers Parent Cue



PSALM 119:105
God's Word shows
us the way to go.
What tells you which way to go?
The Bible tells you which
way to go.
BASIC TRUTH: God made me. God loves me.
Jesus wants to be my friend forever.


When you go into your child's room this month say, "Where's my sweet [child's name]? There [he/she] is! God loves you so much and so does [mommy/daddy]. You are SO loved!"


As you drive, point out to your child the way you are going as you turn this way and that way. Encourage him/her to point with you. As you take him/her out of the carseat, tell him/her that God uses the Bible to point the way for us to go.


Cuddle up with your child this month and pray, "Dear God, thank You for making [child's name] and letting me be [his/her] [mommy/daddy]. I pray we will read the Bible so we will know the way to go. We know Your way is always the best way. We love You, God. In Jesus' name, amen."


Say to your child, "This is the way to bath time! Follow me and do what I do." Lead your child in doing fun actions like hopping, tip-toeing, and crawling to the bath. As you bathe your child say, "I showed you the way to bath time. What did God give us to tell us the way to go? Yes! The Bible!"

From Parent Cue:

By Carlos Whittaker

I’ve heard it said that life is sprinting past us. I used to believe that.  Until one day I stopped to look at a roly poly on the ground with my 4-year-old son. He was absolutely mesmerized by this thing. And, I was mesmerized by him being mesmerized. I remember almost walking right by him to continue with some important grown up task. “DAD! LOOK! YOU HAVE TO LOOK!” So I got down on my belly, eye-level with that tiny insect. I was suddenly floored. Every single time my son touched that thing, it would roll into the most perfect circle I had ever seen. We laid on our bellies for almost 25 minutes playing with that thing. When I got up, I was all but ready to become president of the World Roly Poly Association. It was that amazing. A ROLY POLY!

It was then that I realized the statement my generation loved to spit out, “Life is sprinting past us.” was wrong. We were actually sprinting past life. And, that was the day I decided to stop and live and be more intentional with them moments we have together as a family . . .
