SAY THIS:
Who can believe in Jesus?
You can believe in Jesus.
 ACTS 17:16-34
Paul tells the people in Athens
about the God who made everything,
and how He gave us His Son, Jesus.
DO THIS:

 MORNING TIME


When you go into your child's room, say, "Good morning! (Pick your child up and hold them at the window.) I see a tree God made. I see a flower God made. I see a bird God made. I see the sun God made. (Look at your child.) And I see a person God made. You! God made you!" (Give your child a big hug.)

 DRIVE TIME


As you drive, take turns saying, "God made (name something you see through the window)." End your drive by saying, "God made the whole world and everything in it!"

 CUDDLE TIME


Cuddle with your child this month and pray, "Dear God, I ask that [child's name] grows up believing that You made the whole world and everything in it. I ask that [he/she] believes in You as their Creator. I ask that [he/she] believes that You love [him/her] so much that You gave us your only Son, Jesus, to be our friend forever. In Jesus' name, amen."

 BATH TIME


Add 5-10 star shapes and a plastic cup to bath time this month. (Cut stars out of new yellow kitchen sponges or use plastic toy stars.) Encourage your child to line the stars up along the edge of the tub, count the stars, and let the stars float as they "catch" them with a cup. As you play with the stars, say, "God made the stars and everything in the world. That means God made you!"

BASIC TRUTH:

JESUS WANTS TO BE MY FRIEND FOREVER.
FROM PARENT CUE:
AN OPEN LETTER TO THE FUTURE
THERAPIST OF MY CHILDREN
By Jon Acuff

Dear therapist who ,may one day be counseling my children,

There are two things I need to say right out of the gate:

1. I tried my best.
2. I hope you have a sound machine.

The second point is more of a personal preference rather than a revelation. Having gone to counseling myself, I appreciate when a therapist has some sort of sound machine that makes you feel like you’re at the beach. Gentle electronic waves lapping against the shore tend to help you forget you’re actually in a strip mall off the highway. The second point is easy to address, the first point is a little more detailed . . .
