Motion :: Week of March 16

God is one of a kind. He has no beginning and no end. Everything He has created is unique and one-of-a-kind, including people created in His image.

Every person is an original reflection of God in how they love, care for others, imagine, create, and solve problems. Jesus lived this out in the way He loved all people and helped people feel like they had value no matter who they were or what they had done. We can reflect this in the way we live out how God created us.

This week, we took a look at what Paul wrote to Timothy in 1 Timothy 4:12. Paul wrote to Timothy to remind him to stay faithful to the task God gave him. Although he was young, Timothy was able to lead the church and point people to Jesus.

God made me to make a difference. As we discover more about our individuality, we can begin to realize that God created us for a purpose. God can use our strengths to help others and show them what it means to follow Jesus.

At dinner tonight, share what individual gifts and talents you bring to the family and how it makes your family stronger when you celebrate your differences.

WE’RE LEARNING… God made everything. God made me.
MEMORY VERSE: “God created the heavens and earth.” Genesis 1:1b (NIV)
BIBLE STORY: The Beginning I Genesis 1

This week we sang a song to remind us that God made everything. Sing the song with your toddler at home!

God Made Everything (to the tune of “The Farmer and the Dell”)

God made me, God made me,
God made everything we see,
and God made me. 

Continue the activity, but replace “me” with your toddler’s name each time it appears in the song.

God made (toddler’s name), God made (toddler’s name),
God made everything we see, 
and God made (toddler’s name)

Repeat a few times, or as long as your toddler is interested. Say, “Remember, God made everything we see and He made you and me. He loves us so much! Who made everything? Who made you?” Encourage your toddler to say, “God made everything. God made me!”


Quest :: Week of March 16

One of the most important foundations we can lay for our children to build upon is the truth that God made them. He made them in His image, and He also made them wonderfully unique. When children understand these powerful concepts, they see how important they really are to God. Knowing they are made and loved by God will motivate them to respect themselves and others!

In this week’s Bible story, we learned that we are so important to God, He sent Jesus into the world so we can be with Him forever.

Cuddle and pray, “Dear God, thank You for sending Jesus to be our friend and make a way for us to be with You forever. I hope we always remember how important we are to You and how much You love us. We love You, God. In Jesus’ name, amen.”

WE’RE LEARNING… God made everything. God made me.
MEMORY VERSE: “God created the heavens and earth.” Genesis 1:1b (NIV)
BIBLE STORY: The Beginning I Genesis 1

Play a fun game with your toddler to help them remember God made everything, including all of the animals!

Act out an animal using actions and sounds. Encourage your toddler to guess which animal you’re pretending to be. After your toddler guesses correctly, ask, “Who made (animal acted out)?” Encourage your toddler to say, “God!” Continue the activity for as long as your toddler is interested, choosing a different animal each time.

After the activity say, “Great job! God made all of the animals and everything we see. He made you and me!”

One of the most important foundations we can lay for our children to build upon is the truth that God made them. He made them in His image, and He also made them wonderfully unique. When children understand these powerful concepts, they see how important they really are to God. Knowing they are made and loved by God will motivate them to respect themselves and others!

In this week’s Bible story, we learned we are smart, helpful, and creative like God because He made us in His image.

As you drive, repeat “[Child’s name] is fearfully and wonderfully made.” Then, repeat it, but use different people’s names.  See how many friends, family members, and community helpers you can name before you get where you’re going.
