Kids in the Word Wednesdays: New Commitment

The Pelsers

I am excited to begin this new feature –
KIDS IN THE WORD WEDNESDAYS
– which will replace “Works-for-Me-Wednesdays.”

Does anyone else have trouble keeping your kids surrounded by and embedded into God’s Word? *counts the hands raised* Yea, me, too. :P

Working moms, Work-at-Home-Moms, Homeschooling Moms, Stay-at-Home-Moms, and all kinds of Christian Moms alike find it tough to make the time in the middle of the daily grind to get their kids in the Word.

The trouble is that if we don’t get our kids into the habit now that they’re still young, they won’t do it later when they’re older. Click here to tweet this

THE PROBLEM:

I think that the biggest issue I have is that I have a very erratic devotional life myself. Since I don’t have a set time for my own Bible Study and prayer time, I am inconsistent and may go for days without it. :( Most of the time, I’m struggling to get it done while one of the kids is napping and the other is playing or downstairs with my Mother-in-Law.
I am convicted that I need to wake up early and spend my mornings with God, but I’m just too tired. Can anyone else relate??
But, you know what? I need to do this. My spiritual well-being and the spiritual well-being of my children (not to mention my marriage, friendship and everything else!) depend on me having spent time with Jesus FIRST. Otherwise I’m running on empty all day. To that end, I do need to sleep earlier. That is my goal for this month.

THE SOLUTION:

As I’m committing to doing this for myself, I’m also committing to having a set time each day (ok, maybe just Mon-Fri) for my kids to also spend time in the Word. I’ll be talking about it on Wednesdays and hopefully bringing you some helpful tips and strategies. I know that a lot of you reading have kids my own children’s ages, so it will be geared towards the littles. And there’s nothing I’ll be telling you that will take tons of time and energy on your part. A few minutes a day is a great way to develop a lifelong habit.

HERE’s A TIP:

I can leave you with one thing I do with Jelly Bean each day:

Every night before bed I anoint her with essential oils and speak Phil 4:6-7 over her.
I’ve done it so many nights that she not only requests the oils herself,
but she RECITES THE VERSE ALONG WITH ME.

If your kids are at an age where, like mine, they can’t yet read, RECITING the Scriptures to them is a very powerful tool. Let them hear you speaking God’s Word and it will get into their hearts. Click here to tweet this

I hope that is helpful. Just pick a verse – any verse! – and speak it over your child at night before bed. See what happens.

If you thought this was helpful or if you have another tip, please share it with everyone in the Comments!

Disney/PIXAR’s BRAVE – Review and WINNER!

Disney/PIXAR’s BRAVE – The Ultimate Collector’s Edition

Our Winner is Brittany R.!
Congratulations!

The BRAVE Ultimate Collector’s Edition 5-Disc Set includes Blu-Ray, Blu-Ray 3D, and DVD. A $35 value!

From the Disney Press Release:

BRAVE is the gorgeous and fun film you’d expect from Disney/Pixar. Set in the ancient and magical Highlands of Scotland, the film follows the heroic journey of headstrong, young adventurer Merida. Determined to carve her own path in life, Merida confronts tradition and defies an age-old custom that inadvertently unleashes chaos, and forces her to discover the true meaning of bravery.

REVIEW: 5 THINGS I LOVED ABOUT BRAVE:

  1. The animation is truly amazing.
    • It was crisp, clean, and fluid. The colors were bright and attractive. Visually wonderful.
  2. The focus on the mother/daughter relationship.
    • The tension and conflict is spot-on. Every mother has shaken their head and sighed wondering for the thousandth time why their daughter won’t listen to them. And every daughter has felt smothered by their mother’s expectations that seem too lofty and totally undesirable. Hence CONFLICT.
  3. The triplet little brothers.
    • Although they have no lines in the movie, they manage to be the loudest and funniest!
  4. Merida’s self-confidence.
    • I love how in our generation, the age-old familiar fairy tales are being rewritten with a stronger feminist bent. It is good for our daughters to have strong role models.
  5. A happy ending that isn’t a cliche.
    • Merida doesn’t need a prince to make her whole. She has her family, her passion and her goals. If she manages to pick up a prince along the way, all the better, but not required.

Thank you to everyone for entering and I hope you’ll stay tuned for more Giveaways coming soon!
