This week our readings are in an interesting part of Jesus’ life we often overlook. It’s the last week of his life, but not one of the high stakes, headliner events like his triumphal entry into Jerusalem or his crucifixion. It’s the in between days – Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday. He spent that time in Jerusalem … Continue reading One Week to Live
This week our planned preschool lesson and our daily Bible readings are centered on Jesus’ miracles. This might become a tricky topic for your children (and for you) to think about as your kids grow older. But our littlest ones usually love these Bible stories because they still have faith the way Jesus calls us … Continue reading Sunday School Recap – Jesus’ first miracle
So I’m sure you probably noticed, but the temperature dropped like 40 degrees overnight this weekend.

We’ve written about attending church and the importance of teaching our children how to pray (more than once). And another way Munger Kids is working with you to lay that … Continue reading Starting With Creation
This year we are putting a lot of emphasis on prayer. We have already learned what the word means: that it is the way we speak with God. We also discussed when and where we can speak with Him. If there is one specific way. A right or wrong way. Back in September, our preschoolers … Continue reading The Importance of Prayer
I have a confession to make: I am a serial story shortener. Funny thing is, I didn’t even know I had a problem until my kids started calling me out about it. I shorten stories for the same reasons that you do (and I know you do). You see, I need to shelter my kids … Continue reading Just Tell Me the Whole Story
