Motion :: Week of February 16

We’re tuning in to Cam’s vlog, Cam I Am, to learn about the fruit of the Spirit. Jesus sent the Holy Spirit to strengthen, encourage, and help us. When we listen to the Holy Spirit, we start developing a specific set of character qualities the Bible calls the “Fruit of the Spirit.” The Bible calls it fruit because it shows up when we are growing in our faith.

In this week’s episode of Cam I Am, Cam answered the question of the day by teaching us how the Holy Spirit helps us grow patience, kindness, and goodness.

During eGroup time, we took a closer look at what the Bible says about patience, kindness, and goodness. When we allow the Holy Spirit to help us show patience, kindness, and goodness in our daily lives, it completely changes the way we interact with others. People will see the Holy Spirit working in us and want to spend more time with us when we wait patiently, treat others with kindness, and choose to do what is right and good!

This week, read the passage for each fruit of the Spirit together as a family and talk about how you can show each fruit every day.

Patience – Waiting with the right attitude.
     -Read Proverbs 14:9

😃 Kindness – Showing others how much God loves them.
     -Read Ephesians 4:32

👍🏼 Goodness – Doing the right thing no matter what.
      -Read 2 Thessalonians 3:13

As your kid settles down for bed time this week, work together to brainstorm a list of random acts of kindness your family could initiate this week. Maybe your family could surprise someone at the store by paying for their groceries, or your kid could take a special treat to his or her teacher.

Motion :: Week of February 9

We’re tuning in to Cam’s vlog, Cam I Am, to learn about the fruit of the Spirit. Jesus sent the Holy Spirit to strengthen, encourage, and help us. When we listen to the Holy Spirit, we start developing a specific set of character qualities the Bible calls the “Fruit of the Spirit.” The Bible calls it fruit because it shows up when we are growing in our faith.

In this week’s episode of Cam I Am, Cam answered the question of the day by teaching us how the Holy Spirit helps us grow the fruit of the Spirit.  

During eGroup time, we took a closer look at what the Bible says about love, joy, and peace. When we allow the Holy Spirit to help us show love, joy, and peace in our daily lives, it completely changes the way we interact with others. People will see the Holy Spirit working in us and want to spend more time with us when we put them ahead of ourselves, choose to have a glad attitude no matter what, and have peace instead of worry or fear.

While you eat breakfast this week, choose one of the following verses to read each day and talk about how you can show each fruit of the Spirit.

❤️ Love – Putting others first.
      -Read Romans 12:10.

😁 Joy – Choosing to be glad, even when it’s hard.
      -Read Philippians 4:4

✌🏼 Peace – Trusting God is in control.
      -Read Isaiah 26:3

Then, encourage your family to join you in a JOY CHALLENGE! Encourage each person in your family to write down a list of reasons to praise or thank God and put it somewhere they will see it every day. Say, “Little disappointments and aggravations can try to steal our joy, but let’s choose to protect our joy with praise! Whenever something happens that threatens your joy, remind yourself of one of the reasons to praise, or thank God, that you wrote down and then speak it out loud to Him!”

Motion :: Week of February 2

We’re tuning in to Cam’s vlog, Cam I Am, to learn about the fruit of the Spirit. Jesus sent the Holy Spirit to strengthen, encourage, and help us. When we listen to the Holy Spirit, we start developing a specific set of character qualities the Bible calls the “Fruit of the Spirit.” The Bible calls it fruit because it shows up when we are growing in our faith.

In this week’s episode of Cam I Am, Cam answered the question of the day by teaching us about the Holy Spirit and how He helps us grow.  

During eGroup time, we learned more about who the Holy Spirit is and how He helps us. We took a look at John 14:15-27 to learn about the time Jesus promised the disciples He would send the Holy Spirit to help them. Once we make the decision to follow Jesus, God promises His Holy Spirit will help teach and guide us. The more we spend time with God, the more can learn how to listen to the Holy Spirit and follow Him!

At dinner this week, discuss how the Holy Spirit helps us (guides, teaches, comforts us, helps us grow) Tell your child about a time the Holy Spirit helped you.

Motion :: Week of January 26

SELF-CONTROL: Choosing to do what you should even when you don’t want to.
Series Memory Verse:“God’s power has given us everything we need to lead a godly life.” 2 Peter 1:3a, (NIrV)
Main Point: Know when to stop.
Bible Story: Too Much of a Good Thing| Proverbs 25:16

As we follow Jesus, His love transforms us. His Spirit gives us the power to show self-control.
We can follow His example and choose to do what we should do — instead of what we want to do.

This week, we finished our series by looking at Proverbs 25:16 to find out what happens when we indulge and eat too much. However, this proverb isn’t just about how much we eat. We learned that too much of anything, even if it’s a good thing, can have serious consequences.

Know when to stop. Knowing when to stop isn’t always easy. A lot of times it’s a parent or teacher who helps kids know it’s time to stop what they’re doing and take a break. We hope that kids start to see that choosing to stop can be the wisest choice and God can help them know when to stop.

At bedtime, read Proverbs 25:16. Ask God to give each of you the wisdom and power to know when to stop and when to act.

SELF-CONTROL: Choosing to do what you should even when you don’t want to.
Series Memory Verse:“God’s power has given us everything we need to lead a godly life.” 2 Peter 1:3a, (NIrV)
Main Point: Choose your words carefully.
Bible Story: Choose Your Words Carefully | Proverbs 12:18

As we follow Jesus, His love transforms us. His Spirit gives us the power to show self-control.
We can follow His example and choose to do what we should do — instead of what we want to do.

This week, we took a look at to Proverbs 12:18 to learn more about self-control. Solomon wrote about the power of our words and how choosing the right words brings healing to a difficult situation, rather than destruction.

Choose your words carefully. We want kids to think about the words they use throughout different situations, because our words can help point others to Jesus.

At dinner this week, talk about how you can regain self-control when you feel yourself about to lose self-control.
