Have you ever used a compass to show you which way to go? They’re great for helping you on a hike,
but not as great when we’re trying to figure out which way to go in life. We need the Bible for that!
This month, we’re going to teach our preschoolers that the Bible tells us which way to go.
How wonderful would it be if our preschoolers grew up using the Bible as their compass as they ride through life!
“Show me the right path, (circle hands around eyes)
O Lord; (point up with pointer fingers)
point out the road (point down with pointer fingers)
for me to follow.” (march in place)
Psalm 25:4, NLT (open hands like a book)
1st – 5th GRADE
Amped is defined as being filled with energetic excitement and enthusiasm. When we realize that Jesus came to give us the fullest life possible, we can live confidently in His love for us, and THAT is living an amped life! This month, we’re getting amped to help our kids understand that, with God’s help, we can have the confidence to change the world!
Living like you believe what God says is true.
“I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness
of the Lord in the land of the living.”
Psalm 27:13, NIV

Mile #7: Reunion
Someday, we will live with Jesus in Heaven, but until then, we get to live our lives with Him on earth each day!
Family Activity: One way we daily live with God and have a relationship with Him is learning what the Bible says. Before bedtime, practice your child’s memory verse. After practicing the verse, use these questions for discussion:
- How do you like to spend time with Jesus?
- What are you learning about Jesus at church?
- How does learning scripture help you spend time with God?
- Who in your life needs to learn about Jesus? How can you share with them what you are learning?
Share: Post a picture or video of your family reciting your child’s memory verse. Use the hashtag #sevenmilemiracle and tag @elevationeKidz.
