This week we are starting the study of the book of Philippians. The author is Paul and he wrote this letter to show us how to live our lives as Christians and reflect Christ in our words and actions. The format of our reading plan is a little different. The book of Philippians has four … Continue reading Dear Philippi
This week we can see through Paul’s journey what it means when God is with us and the Holy Spirit guides us. It certainly does not mean that our life is all rainbows and butterflies. Despite many challenges and much physical harm, Paul stood boldly in the truth of Christ. Monday March 15, Acts 21:27-36 … Continue reading Who Do You Reflect?
This week we see examples of God freeing people from bondage. But there are different ways to be a prisoner – both spiritual and physical. As you read Acts this week, ask your children to look for examples of what we can be prisoners of, and how we can be set free. Monday February … Continue reading Break Free
Acts is full of incredible and miraculous events that kept the church growing and thriving. This week's readings contain several. Make sure you don't miss any of the cool ways God blessed Peter to continue to spread the name of Jesus. Oh, and here's a little ditty (with a spectacular and very 80s music video...seriously, … Continue reading Amy Grant does it again
God can not only transform a caterpillar into a butterfly, but more importantly He can transform our lives! This week’s reading has one of the best examples of this.

By that I mean that only you know exactly who your child is and how he or she learns and reacts to things. Well, you and God; but here I’m just … Continue reading When Hanger Strikes…
We have a one week break from our Munger Bible reading plan. We just finished Nehemiah on Friday and we start Revelation a week from today. I thought I’d take a little latitude this week and not give my usual brilliant insights into Scripture (like I said…latitude) but share with you my thoughts on what … Continue reading Which Bible Should I Get For My Kid?
The last words of Nehemiah are probably something we all hope for: that God remembers us for the good we have done in our lives. Of course, we come up short over and over again, just like the Israelites. But God’s forgiveness and love is abundant. September 28 Nehemiah 9:1-38 Today’s Takeaways: The people completed … Continue reading Forget Me Not
This week we have several psalms that focus on the cause and effect of our relationship with God. God, you did _________ so I'm going to praise you. This is something I've been working on for a while with my two year old and it's an easy thing to start with your kids too. Georgia … Continue reading “Thank You” Like David, not Dido
