Motion :: Week of December 7

Let’s celebrate the whole Christmas season by talking about who God is. As kids learn who God is, they trust His marvelous plan, love others without exception, and live for Jesus.

This week, we tuned into the Loop Show and took a look at John 3:16, to learn that God loves us, and we can trust Him no matter what.

God loves US more than anything else He created. In fact, He loves us so much that He came up with a drastic plan to make sure we could spend eternity with Him even though we don’t deserve it.

Because we sin — we do wrong things — we deserve to die. But God sent His own Son to die in our place. That’s how much He loves us. When we truly realize how much He loves us, we can trust Him with every little detail of our lives.

At bedtime this week, read John 3:16 and pray together. Pray your child will understand just how much God loves them. Pray that this Christmas season, they will experience what it means to adore God back!

Motion :: Week of November 30

Let’s celebrate the whole Christmas season by talking about who God is. As kids learn who God is, they trust His marvelous plan, love others without exception, and live for Jesus.

This week, we tuned into the Loop Show and took a look at Matthew 6:1-4, to learn about how we can be generous.

God has given so generously to us, and He wants us to be generous to others. However, the Bible teaches us that the position of our hearts when we give to others is actually more important than what we give. Jesus told the disciples that our generosity should happen in secret. We shouldn’t give publicly because we want to be honored by other people; we should give privately because we want to honor God.

At bedtime this week, read Matthew 6:1-4 and pray together. Pray your child will practice quiet generosity this week. Pray they’ll recognize the ways God blesses their generosity even when no one else sees what they’re doing.

Motion :: Week of November 23

It may not sound like fun to learn spiritual disciplines, but here’s the thing — spiritual disciplines aren’t boring. They’re vital, and we absolutely can’t survive this life without them. During this series, kids will learn that the spiritual disciplines of praying, solitude, reading the Bible, and asking questions are not chores on a to-do list, but life-saving survival skills!

This week, we tuned into the Loop Show and took a look at James 1:5, to learn that we don’t have to be afraid to ask questions — God wants us to ask questions so we can learn more about Him and how He wants us to live. In fact, our questions will help us grow in our faith!

God will never be upset by our questions. He won’t tell us the question is dumb or wrong. He won’t think we’re bad people because of the questions we ask. In fact, God wants us to ask questions. Asking questions means we’re thinking and learning. When we ask questions, our faith is actually strengthened through our struggle. When we seek His answers, God’s wisdom helps our faith grow.

At bedtime this week, read James 1:5 and pray together. Pray your child will feel confident asking God the questions on their hearts. Pray that God will speak to them through His Word and that He will put people in their lives who can share godly wisdom when they have questions.

It may not sound like fun to learn spiritual disciplines, but here’s the thing — spiritual disciplines aren’t boring. They’re vital, and we absolutely can’t survive this life without them. During this series, kids will learn that the spiritual disciplines of praying, solitude, reading the Bible, and asking questions are not chores on a to-do list, but life-saving survival skills!

This week, we tuned into the Loop Show and took a look at Matthew 17:24-25, to learn that we can build a solid foundation for our lives by spending time in God’s Word and practicing what it says.

When we dig into the Bible and put what it says into practice, we’re building a solid foundation for our lives. No matter what kinds of problems we face, God’s Word has advice and solutions. If we want His Word to hold us up in hard times, we have to spend time reading it and practicing what it says.

At bedtime this week, read Matthew 17:24-25 and pray together. Pray your child will see the value in spending time in God’s Word. Pray they’ll prioritize setting aside time each day to read their Bibles and put God’s Word into practice.

It may not sound like fun to learn spiritual disciplines, but here’s the thing — spiritual disciplines aren’t boring. They’re vital, and we absolutely can’t survive this life without them. During this series, kids will learn that the spiritual disciplines of praying, solitude, reading the Bible, and asking questions are not chores on a to-do list, but life-saving survival skills!

This week, we tuned into the Loop Show and took a look at Luke 5:16, to learn about how important it is to turn off all distractions and have quiet time with God.

Jesus regularly made time to be alone so He could pray and meditate in stillness. Solitude and quiet helped Him hear God’s voice and remember God’s promises and commands to Him. Finding stillness, or quiet time with God, is a survival skill. We can’t have a thriving relationship with God if we never quiet ourselves to let Him speak.

At bedtime this week, read Luke 5:16 and pray together. Pray your child will set aside time to be quiet with God. Pray they’ll recognize the calmness and peace they can find when they set aside consistent quiet time to hear from God.
