ENGAGE IN EVERYDAY MOMENTS TOGETHER
When you go into your child’s room, say: “Good morning, [child’s name]! It’s a new day! God is good!”
While on the go, take turns pointing out things that are good. Each time you name something, say, “God is good!”
Cuddle with your child and pray: “God, when we look at the world You made, it’s easy to see that You are good. Thank You for…(name things in creation you are thankful for).”
Add toy animals to bath time. As your child plays, talk about how God made ALL the animals. God could have just made one, but instead, God made lots and lots and LOTS of unique and interesting animals. God is good!
