Quest :: Week of October 12

We all want to be strong and courageous. But how? What can help us be brave? This month, we’re teaching our preschoolers that they don’t need the super powers they see in the movies to do something courageous. When they’re afraid to walk into a dentist office or talk to a new friend, we want them to remember that they’re not alone — God is with them and He can help them be brave!

This weekend, we learned about the time God told Gideon he would win the battle, even though he fought a much bigger army.

This week, cuddle with your child and pray, “Dear God, no one is smarter than You. You know everything! We can totally trust what You say. Please help us to do what You say, because Your way is always best. We love You! In Jesus’ name, amen.”

When they’re afraid to walk into a dentist office or talk to a new friend, we want them to remember that they’re not alone — God is with them and He can help them be brave!

This week, we learned about Daniel’s story to see that we can be brave because God is with us.

This week, when you go into your child’s room, say, “Good morning! If you’re ready to be strong and courageous, let me see your super kid pose. (Strike a superhero pose.) And who is always with us, helping us be strong and courageous? God is always with us!”


Quest :: Week of September 28


When we take time to look at this amazing world God made, we are filled with awe and wonder. It’s that feeling of wonder we want children to have as they learn about God’s creation. We are going to do a lot of counting together this month — one, two, three, four, five, six, seven — pausing to learn what God made on each day of creation. Through our fun and exciting activities and stories, we want our preschoolers to learn God made everything, and IT IS GOOD! 

This weekend, we learned that on the sixth day of creation, God made the most special thing — people! Then, on the seventh day, God rested.

This week, pull out some paper and crayons and draw self-portraits with your child. As you draw your hair and eyes and mouth, talk about how God made people. Explain that people are God’s favorite because He made us in His image. God loves people more than anything!

This weekend, we learned what God made on the fifth and sixth days of creation. On day five, God made birds and fish and on day six, He made animals and people.

This week, play a fun game with your child to help them remember what God made on the fifth day of creation! First, teach your child how to make a fish face and pretend to swim around the house like little fish. Next, flap your arms like birds and pretend to fly around the house. While you pretend to swim and fly, talk about how God made all the fish and birds — and they are good!

This weekend, we learned that God made the sun, moon, and stars on the fourth day of creation and it was good.

When you go into your child’s room this week, say, “Good morning, [child’s name]! The moon went down and the sun came up! Who made the sun, moon, and stars? God did!”
