School is back in session. A bright yellow bus lumbered through our neighborhood this week bringing back memories of school years gone by.
I remember jamming books in my backpack, walking to the bus stop and being excited to catch up with my friends after summer break.
Year after year, not only was I learning the basics, but I was also becoming aware of the subjects that really interested me. My purpose was becoming clearer.
It’s neat to look back on those formative years and see how God was already at work. I’m convinced that in spite of the billions of people on the planet, the Lord loves and cares about each person individually.
The Lord has a purpose and plan for each person He has created. And part of His plan includes relationships with others.
It’s never too early to begin teaching our children biblical truths like these. I love the way Moses put it:
And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up. Deuteronomy 6:7
A fun way to teach truth
Teaching godly truths can be done throughout the day in a variety of ways. If you enjoy reading to your kids, my new children’s book, Louie’s BIG day! will help you convey these concepts through a fun storyline:
Louie is a bright red lawnmower who used to live at the hardware store with his friends: Ruthie Rake, Eddie Edger, Bobbie Blower, Terri Trowel, and Henri Hose. Recently he was purchased by a man and his wife and now he’s on his own.
Louie misses his friends, but it’s time to find out if he can do the job he was made to do. Join Louie for his BIG adventure and discover the surprise that awaits him at the end of the day!
Louie the Lawnmower series
The first in the Louie the Lawnmower book series, Louie’s BIG day! wraps up with questions to engage you and your child in conversation and help you re-emphasize biblical truths.
Louie even has his own website where you can download a free copy of the audio version of Louie’s BIG day! Louie’s adventures are just getting started. Keep your eyes open for the second book in the Louie the Lawnmower series: Louie & the Leaf Pile, due out early next year!
