Big and Little Coloring Devotional is a Game Changer





So I will be the first to admit that I do not spend enough time in the Word with my son.  I will save you from all the excuses that I have, some you may have used yourself, and instead I will tell you what I have found that helps us have some quality time each week in Bible Study.

On Saturday mornings, I like to wake up and have some coffee and read my Bible or even catch up on my study throughout the week if there is a day I missed. #realtalk 

My 4 year-old has started joining me.  So after we finish, I break out his Awana Cubbies book and we do the lesson and Bible Study for the next week and discuss his memory verse.  


Another resource I have used is the Big and Little Coloring Devotional.  There is a devotion that I can share with my son at the same time we are coloring a page about the topic.  One side has a page facing him and the other has a page facing me with the devotion. Take a look at the picture below pulled from the creator's website at https://www.bigandlittlecoloringdevotional.com/

This week's devotion was about Jesus as our Shepherd and went hand in hand with the lesson in his Cubbies book for this week!

I highly recommend this book if you have kids who enjoy coloring and you do as well.  It's a great way to have them sit for just a bit and discuss God together.

The Big and Little Coloring Devotional is available on Amazon or other retailers.


If you get a copy of this book, comment below and let me know how it has impacted quality devotional time with your kids!

Love in Christ, 

Alyson

Why Community is Important

We were created for community.  It's that simple.  You need only look to God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit- the Trinity, to see that even God is in community. Genesis 1:26 says, "Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness..." And there are many other ways to know that all three were there in the beginning together... just study your Bible, you'll see. 😊 But that isn't the main focus here today...
