  1. We have done many of these and still do. Great list Kim! Looking forward to the study!!!
    Some little things we do… (We have 4 kids). Birthdays-We rotate years they can have a friend birthday party. They don’t get one every year.
    Sports- They can choose 1 a year to do. With 4 kids it makes for a busy enough schedule. But they know and learn, ” it’s not all about me.”
    Family verse- We each have our own favorite verses but this is our family verse. Phil 4:11-13. It’s used all the time in our home.
    Buy used- They don’t “need” everything new.

  2. This is so true and practical. We are buying the study to do at home- can’t wait. Thanks, Kim!

  3. I’d love to see you develop your point into a post or series from #5. I don’t really know where to start to explain poverty to my 2 and 4 year-olds, though I really want to.

    1. Start with what they know. 🙂 When my son was little we went through his toys to give some to children who didn’t have any. He understood that concept and it meant something to him. Then he learned that some people don’t have enough food, or clean water, or a place to live, etc. They actually understand more than we think. If you start with something that really means something to your children, it will help them connect and understand.

  4. I’d love it if you could make these blog posts printable friendly that could be turned into a great morning devotional booklet!!!
