One of our greatest blessings as mothers is the privilege to teach our children about God.
It’s a weighty blessing—one that we are constantly wondering and questioning if we are getting “right.”
So we teach them the Bible stories, reinforce the “reason for the season” each holiday, pray diligently for their little hearts, and take them to all the church programs.
And, yet, we still wonder if we are doing enough.
Should we homeschool? Do I need to buy them that new devotional? Make them watch Veggies Tales over Dora?
And while these are all noble questions to consider, teaching our children about God doesn’t have to come from a curriculum. Every day we are given opportunities to reinforce the Gospel and to show our children how amazing our God is. It’s as simple as pointing out how God knows the number of strands of hair on your daughters head while you’re detangling her messy mane.
With that in mind, one of my favorite places to show my kids how awesome God is is outside.
And, today, I’m over at Faith Along the Way, as part of her Strong Family series, sharing 4 simple ways to teach your kids about God through nature! I hope you’ll join me over there!
