Love is a commitment that results in certain feelings, thoughts, and actions. This is why when we love God, it changes our actions and we may sin less. Therefore, perhaps we should talk with our children more about loving God and not just knowing about Him and knowing Him. Dr. Kathy mentions some feelings and thoughts associated with love before showing how to teach children about love using contrasts from 1 Corinthians 13:4-8. You’ll appreciate the practical ideas!

All children (and adults) can remember with three different modalities. When children know which are strengths, they’re empowered to be successful. Auditory children remember best what they hear, especially the things they hear themselves say. Visual children remember best what they see. Kinesthetic children remember best what they do.   Resources mentioned in this episode: Start With the Heart 8 Great Smarts Deuteronomy 6:5-9 Freebie Fridge Meme: Submit your questions and share your feedback: Nancy@CelebrateKids.com Facebook pageInstagram

Over the past several weeks, as people tried to figure out what to buy you for Christmas, you were probably asked “What do you want?” many times. What if Jesus asked you that question as he did to some of His followers? How would you answer? What if the question was, “What do you want to give Him?” Answering these questions may be more valuable than any New Year’s resolutions you will set.  Resources mentioned in this episode:  John 1:35-38, CelebrateKids.com Submit your questions and share your feedback: Nancy@CelebrateKids.com, www.Facebook.com/CelebrateKidsInc, www.Instagram.com/CelebrateKidsInc

You might think this is a crazy idea since this is a busy season, but it’s imperative that we build times of quiet into our day for at least three reasons. Self-smart adults and children need quiet so they can think and process ideas. Second, quiet allows wisdom to rise to the surface. Third, reflecting and pondering increases our confidence and allows us to make ideas personal.

Peace is on my mind because Jesus was called the “Prince of Peace” when His birth was predicted, as recorded in Isaiah 9:6. It would be wonderful if we could live at peace during this hectic season. Yet, kids will be excited, sleep deprived, and on a sugar high. Let’s respond with compassion!

Listen to learn what attribute accompanies gratitude.
