Morning Time

When you go into your child’s room, look around and say: “Good morning! I’m looking for someone that God loves. [His, her] name is [name of child], and God loves [him, her] a lot! Oh! There you are!” (Cuddle with your child after you “find” them.)

Drive Time

While on the go, look for gardens. Flower gardens, vegetable gardens, small box gardens . . . any kind of garden! Talk about how Adam and Eve learned that God knows what is best for us in a garden called Eden.

Cuddle with your child and pray: “God, I believe You love [name of child] and me A LOT, and because You love us, You will always want what is best for us.”
