Kids' Question of the Month – April (with Video!)

Kids' Question of the Month – April (with Video!)

When our children were little, my husband and I were invincible to them. There wasn't anything we couldn't do. Intricate hair braiding, face painting, pumpkin carving, advanced train track configurations, lemonade stand and Lego kit building are just a few skills on our parenting résumé. We felt confident in our abilities to keep them safe and warm, bellies full, kissing away fears and boo-boos.

Until that day. The day when one of them scraped a knee or something and I swooped in puckered up and ready, 
only to be bluntly told, "Thanks Mommy, but your kisses don't work. I need a band-aid, please!"

Ka-pow! I'd been dethroned and replaced by a SpongeBob band-aid.

Kids' Question of the Month – March

Kids' Question of the Month – March

Our sincere apologies to all the kids, teachers and parents who participated in the Kids' Question of the Month! We're resending this email because — for some reason — only a tiny part of the article got published this morning. Enjoy the MANY responses and adorable pictures! 

March Question: If you could go back in a time machine, what event in the scripture would you like to see with your own eyes? Why?

Elizabeth T. (Age 10, Edison NJ) would crank the machine all the way back because she would "like to see the Creation to see what the world looked like at that time"

Animal lovers abounded in our respondents. Haley S. (Age 6) and Evan G. (Age 5) from Imperial, PA as well as Abigail G. (Age 4) and Emma N. (Age 5) from Monongahela, PA want to see Noah and all the animals on the ark. Elijah K. (Age 4, Monongahela, PA) is especially thankful that Noah "saved the lions and I wish Jesus would have saved Dinosaurs on the ark too."

From the Mouths of Babes

From the Mouths of Babes

"And Jesus saith unto them, Yea; have ye never read, Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings thou hast perfected praise?" (Matthew 21:16)

Children are very animated and expressive about things they love. They also have very literal interpretations of the world around them and say things that are just plain funny to adults. When our kids were little, I would share funny things they said with friends and family. One friend always told me, "You need to write these down!" I did not heed her advice often enough, and some of those comedic childhood conversations have slipped from memory.

Behind the Scenes of the Gospel Blog

We're taking another break from our regularly scheduled programming to bring you a special series about none other than ... the Gospel Blog!

We want to give you an inside peek into how the blog works. We didn't choose this topic because we're self-centered. Many of you may be new to the blog, and even if you're not, you probably have no idea who is on the committee or what goes into producing a week's worth of posts.

It's time to pull back the curtain and reveal all our secrets! (Just kidding. We have no secrets.)
