As Christian mom, little is more important to me than discipleship. A big part of that is immersing Ben in the Word. He is at an age where I am spending more time teaching him how to study the Bible for himself, rather than “doing Bible studies” with him. So I am always on the look-out for resources that can help in that area.
I also feel it is so important in this day and age of entitlement for our children to learn to be truly thankful for the blessings God pours out upon them.
Within the pages of this 266-page ebook, you’ll find nine chapters of Bible study for kids of all ages. Included is a look at the definition of thanks as well as a list of things for which we should give thanks. Two Parts, divided into nine Chapters include:
Part One: What? Why? How?
What is Thanks?
Why Give Thanks to God?
How Should You Give Thanks to God?
Part Two: For What Things Should We Give Thanks to God
His Steadfast Love
History, Deeds, and Answered Prayers
For Those Around Us
Life and Salvation
An Attitude of Thankfulness
Located in the appendix are many options for notebooking and journaling pages, including copywork for the Bible references from the study (in KJV), draw and write pages, as well as journaling and drawing pages.
The ease of using Be Thankful will ensure that you are faithful in doing this study with your kids (or guiding them to study themselves). You simply read from the book, read the verses from Scripture, and create a journal.
In the end, your children will have a beautiful journal on thankfulness, will have hidden His word in their hearts, and ultimately will have learned an important truth — thankfulness is an active of worship and the realization that all we have been given are gifts from God.
The Thanksgiving season will soon be upon us. Followed by Christmas. Now is the perfect time to begin teaching your children to have an attitude of gratitude. Be Thankful is a great way to begin.
For the first week of it’s release, you can purchase Be Thankful for just $0.99 by visiting the Kids in the Word website.
