5 Ways to Share God’s Love with Little Ones

5 Ways to Teach LoveJohn 3:16 was the first verse I learned as a child, I’m pretty certain that’s true for many of you. It’s certainly an important one, for we all need to know just what it says.  It’s so much more to feel it than to know it and it takes awhile to learn how to feel it I think it’s great though because it comes in just the right moments.  The question is: how do we teach children that they are loved and to be loved?  This great little Bible tract is wonderful to help them know just that.

1. Physical affection is something that children need to learn.  Perhaps you read my post about the Benefits of Hugs and we all know that little ones love being hugged and held!  A loving touch can go a long way to comfort others especially children

2. Quality time is also an excellent way to teach love, it is not necessary to spend tons of money or go to giant amusement park for good quality time.  Some of my best memories are when my mom taught me like how to make her favorite wonderful sloppy joe’s secret recipe that I spilled all across the interweb, haha.  When she taught me how to ride horses and the times when we had water pipes in the house, or went camping, or even on spontaneous road trips.  Those are where my best memories  come from.  There’s a free printable gospel plane that you may enjoy.

3. Discipline and consequences are never a fun but they are essential in ensuring that children know that they are loved and cared for.  They create a sense of security by teaching that one one thing happens it will cause another thing

4. Sticking to a schedule is also another way to show children love. Routines create comfort and security that help children feel the love that we have for them.

5. Take care of you.  I know, sounds kind of funny, but if your cup isn’t full, you simply cannot spill the best over to fill the cups of your little ones.

5 Ways to Teach LoveToday, I encourage you and challenge you to take extra time to teach God’s love and show your own one day our children will equate A Parent’s Love with God’s love.  They will learn that God is our Father, just like we are their parents, Aunts, Uncles, grandparents and role models. God’s love is unconditional Just Like A Parent’s Love is supposed to be. God is our father that will always be there, who will comfort us, speak words of wisdom in our ear, stand by our side when we are afraid, when we are hurting, and when we are victorious.

Let the little children come how many tools to help us teach our little ones or Sunday School classes or youth group or whatever the many lessons that God has for us, the greatest blessing from God that we can teach and receive is love.

How to Boost Your Childs Learning

How to Boost Your Childs LearningAdults and children alike struggle with learning and memory.  We are constantly attempting to find new ways to boost learning which inspired me to find some lessons on it.  So, enjoy the fruits of my curiosity and learn how to boost your child’s memory in the process!
Children and adults alike are fascinated with magic. You simply have to look around some sort of magic, whether it be in books on television or in the imagination. Sleight of hand and tricks of the eye fascinate everyone in the audience.
I remember when my son was small how bad he wanted a magic kit and how much fun he had to do his tricks fool his parents, sisters, family, and friends. It was easy to captivate his attention while hands were moving and magic was happening. Let the Little Children Come has figured this out created a little piece of magic to further the word of God. Continuing with their meaningful colors, this Gospel Magic Bag magically changes as one teaches the most valuable lesson a child will ever learn. One thing we all struggle with is memory, learning and getting information to sink in.
When I was a young teenager I remember a lesson I learned at church camp using visual aids to this day I have remembered the lesson that I learned in that. I learned at that moment, that it wasn’t about appearance or size or what color but what was inside that truly mattered. Even though I was only I still remember that over 20 years later.  Point being, the visual aid had a huge impact on my memory.
There are many benefits to utilizing visual aids while teaching a lesson. Not only does our brain learn better but it enables us to utilize more than one portion of our brain as we are learning therefore the lesson sticks deeper then words might alone.  There are studies that clearly demonstrate a difference between auditory and visual learning where visual learning was proven to be a much more effective way to retain information. A clear example of this are company logos.  We don’t need those white letters to know the ‘golden arches’ are a very large popular fast food chain.  Almost any child in the US only needs to see that to start asking for a kids meal from their establishment!  I love this study published by the University of Alabama School of Medicine that clearly shows how much participants remembered from 3 hours to 3 days with verbal only versus visual aids and a combination of the two.  All of this and there are tons more to back up the same, so why would not use visual aids to teach the most important lesson our children will ever learn?
