What if the Word of God is powerful that it could change circumstances and situations for your family as you pray?

You’re Made In The Image Of God

When I think about us — God’s creation, His children — we were created in the very image and likeness of God. (Genesis 1:26-28)

A child will often model and imitate those who they are around, often becoming a lot like their parents or their peers. You are the product of your environment.

Did you know that God wants to be our environment? He wants His Word to be the lens we look at life through.

God created us in His image and likeness, which means that we don’t live by what we naturally see, but rather by the spirit. Our reality can so easily be formed on the things which we’re experiencing.

Romans 8:5 says,

For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit.

1 Corinthians 2:14

But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

The Power of Scripture

God’s Word is powerful. In it, it reveals His heart towards us and how we should live. But, sometimes we don’t see in the natural the things we know by the spirit.

Hebrews 4:12 says,

For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

Reading the Bible and taking it in does something in our hearts. When we read God’s Word, we are connecting with spiritual matters and God Himself. We are learning more about His character and nature and ours through Him.

What we need to do is allow God’s Word to become a part of who we are and not just words on a page.

Prayer Changes Things

First of all, prayer is not a suggestion in the Bible. Jesus often said, “When you pray,” as He was speaking with his disciples. So it wasn’t a matter of not praying, but when you pray.

Prayer is a lifestyle of communion and intimacy with God. We are designed to connect, to speak to and hear from our heavenly Father and it’s done through prayer.

Prayer is not just about saying mere words. That’s repetition – it becomes religious, a law and of no use. When it comes to prayer, it’s about our hearts as we share in the desires of the Lord, a hunger for things to change and a yearning for His will to be done.

Praying Over Your Family

These 30 scriptures below are powerful to pray over your family. We want to agree or confess God’s Word, to make a declaration in accordance with His will, which is His Word.

It’s not God who needs to change; we do. We are not trying to convince God of anything. In fact, we need to convince ourselves of something — we don’t have it right and we aren’t perfect, but God is. His ways are perfect.

So we need to surrender and trust God instead of our own way of thinking. This is why prayer is so important; it changes you and me, not God.

30 Scriptures About God’s Grace + FREE Printable

What is God’s grace and why do we need it? What if the grace of God was not just Him being gracious to us, but empowering us and enabling us to do what He’s called us to do?

What Is The Grace Of God?

A Look Into The Old Testament (Hebrew) Meaning of Grace

Let’s look at Genesis 6:8, the first occurrence in the Bible about grace. It says,

But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.

The Hebrew word for grace in this scripture is: chen (noun)

This word means:

  • favour, grace, charm
  • favour, grace, elegance
  • favour, acceptance

So Noah found favour, charm, elegance, acceptance and grace in the eyes of the Lord.

Why is it that Noah found grace or favour in the eyes of the Lord?

30 Scriptures About God's Grace + FREE PRINTABLE

Let’s read Genesis 6:5-12:

Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And the Lord was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart. So the Lord said, “I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth, both man and beast, creeping thing and birds of the air, for I am sorry that I have made them.” But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord. This is the genealogy of Noah. Noah was a just man, perfect in his generations. Noah walked with God. And Noah begot three sons: Shem, Ham, and Japheth. The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. So God looked upon the earth, and indeed it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted their way on the earth.

This section of scripture talks about the wickedness of man – that their every intent of the thoughts of their heart was only evil continually

The Lord felt sorry He made man. And then verse 8 goes on to say, “BUT NOAH”.

What do you think was different about Noah?

It says in verse 9 – Noah was:

  • a just man
  • perfect in his generations
  • one who walked with God

For Noah to have these qualities about him would indicate that He’s developed character. The character of Noah made him different from the rest of the people and as a result he found grace in the eyes of the Lord.

The scripture does not say that Noah worked hard to earn God’s grace. In fact, God’s grace was attracted to Noah as a result of his relationship with the Lord.

When you look into the words just and perfect, you find that Noah was about what was lawful and righteousness. He was a man who was sound, healthy, upright and full of integrity,

Now Noah sounds like a person you can trust.

When you walk with someone, what happens?

You get to know their heart, you hear from them and exchange conversation. There’s something special and significant about the relationship you build with that person. For Noah, I can imagine that if he walked with the Lord he got know His heart.

So then, finding grace in the sight of the Lord is not something you can manufacture, work towards or ask for; it’s a gift from the Lord. There’s no equation to grace.

A Look Into The New Testament (Greek) Meaning Of Grace

Let’s look at another verse, this time in the greek language.

The greek word for grace is charis. And the first occurrence of charis is found in Luke 1:30, which says:

And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God.

The word favour in this scripture is grace.

Charis means:

  • grace
  • that which affords joy, pleasure, delight, sweetness, charm, loveliness: grace of speech
    good will, loving-kindness, favour
  • of the merciful kindness by which God, exerting his holy influence upon souls, turns them to Christ, keeps, strengthens, increases them in Christian faith, knowledge, affection, and kindles them to the exercise of the Christian virtues
  • what is due to grace
  • the spiritual condition of one governed by the power of divine grace
  • the token or proof of grace, benefit
  • a gift of grace
  • benefit, bounty
  • thanks, (for benefits, services, favours), recompense, reward

Do you suppose Mary had a relationship with the Lord?

I believe she did, just like Noah! She called herself a maidservant or handmaid of the Lord. She was likely surrendered to His Lordship therefore found grace or favour in His sight.

What Does God’s Grace Do?

The grace of God is available for a purpose and does many things:

  • God’s grace can be seen
    • Acts 11:23 – When he came and had seen the grace of God, he was glad, and encouraged them all that with purpose of heart they should continue with the Lord.
  • God’s grace is the gospel
    • Acts 20:24 – But none of these things move me; nor do I count my life dear to myself, so that I may finish my race with joy, and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God.
  • God’s grace is the passageway to salvation
    • Acts 15:11 – But we believe that through the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ we shall be saved in the same manner as they.
  • God’s grace enables and empowers us
    • Acts 4:32-35 – All the believers were one in mind and heart. Selfishness was not a part of their community, for they shared everything they had with one another. The apostles gave powerful testimonies about the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and great measures of grace rested upon them all. Some who owned houses or land sold them and brought the proceeds before the apostles to distribute to those without. Not a single person among them was needy.
    • Ephesians 3:8 – To me, who am less than the least of all the saints, this grace was given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ, let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
  • God’s grace is a free gift
    • Romans 11:6 – And if by grace, then it is no longer of works; otherwise grace is no longer grace. But if it is of works, it is no longer grace; otherwise work is no longer work.
30 Scriptures About God's Grace + FREE PRINTABLE

All other religions tell you what you must do to make yourself acceptable to God, what things you must perform, what you must accomplish and what you must do. Christianity, on the other hand, centers on what God has done to make us acceptable to Him.

Grace is unmerited and unearned favour. It is the inexhaustible supply of God’s goodness whereby He does for us what we could never do for ourselves. God’s grace is what He does for us independent of us.

When we look at the references of grace, we find that it’s an environment with which we live. While grace can’t be earned, it must be accessed. You access grace by faith, you don’t earn it.

Access what has been given to you freely so that you can do what God has called you to do!

My First Failed Homeschool Plan

When I first started planning our homeschool, I wrote a beautiful lesson plan with everything that we were going to do.

Then life happened. Living happened.

I had a 5 and 3 year old at the time. My 3-year old wasn’t interested in my well-intentioned plan. And I felt like I didn’t get to my 5-year old’s learning the way I had planned. The satisfying idea of checking off what we were going to do dwindled to a halt. I felt like a homeschool planning failure.

I wondered, “How do you plan your homeschool when you can’t get done what’s on the lesson plan?”

I like visualizing how everything will look when it comes to homeschool curriculum. There are many things to consider in homeschool planning, such as outings, extra-curriculur activities, holidays, etc. I don’t like not having a plan – it makes me feel ill-equipped and stressed.

I HAD to come up with a different method of planning where I could lay out a plan but not have it written down as something to follow.

And so my method of a simple and restful homeschool plan was born.

This method of homeschool planning I’ve now used for several years. It’s helped me to relax about homeschool, know that I have a plan in place that’s not a law-abiding lesson plan, while also seeing that my kids are learning and moving foward.

What I do is use Google Sheets to plan our homeschool for the year. I then use a simple weekly printable recording what we actually do.

This combination has worked so wonderfully for me, and I want to share it with you!

How To Start Teaching Your Toddler The Bible

How To Start Teaching Your Toddler The Bible

*This post contains affiliate links. Please read disclosure policy.*

Teaching your kids the Bible at a young age is a wonderful opportunity for us as parents. But you may be wondering how to start teaching your toddler the Bible.

First of all, we always make something out to be harder than it really is. So take a deep breath; this isn’t hard nor time consuming, but, it is important work.

Why Should You Read The Bible To Your Toddler?

A misconception I hear is, “Since my kids are so young, they won’t understand the Bible anyways.”

The journey in our life begins as young as a baby in the womb. A toddler will absolutely start to digest what you read and teach them from the Bible. Their spirit, the person who they really are, is engaged with all that’s being deposited in them that reflects the nature and character of God. Their spirit is hungry!

Our role as parents then is to begin connecting our kids to the Father; He is truly THEIR life-source.

We have VERY important work in raising and discipling our kids to discover who God is and who they are through Him. We get to and are able to teach them simple spiritual disciplines at such a young age by what we do.

Please, I urge you… do not dismiss the importance of reading the Bible to your toddler.

Now, let’s move on to find a Bible appropriate for your toddler…

How To Start Teaching Your Toddler The Bible

Step 1: Choose A Bible Appropriate For Toddlers

We immediately think we have to read our toddler from The Holy Bible, the gigantic Bible that we ourselves as adults find a challenge at times. It can almost do more harm than good to read straight out of The Bible to your toddlers.

Unless you have a way to take the wording from The Bible and what’s being taught, and put it into a format designed for toddlers to digest, then I would suggest reading from a Bible that’s appropriate for their age.


Misconceptions about toddler Bibles…

  • #1 – missing parts will harm or lack the depth of the Bible in our kids. As you go on, you’ll choose Bibles appropriate for your children’s age and learning ability. By this, they will get more and more out of the Bible as they grow and will start to ask more questions. This then opens it up for you to read out of The Holy Bible to them or with them.
  • #2 – the Bible is a dry, dull, boring and hard to understand book. The Bible should not be introduced to your kids as such; it should be viewed and taught as fun, full of action and life!

Bibles Appropriate for Toddlers:

Teaching your kids the Bible at a young age is important. Find out how to start teaching your toddler the Bible and develop a love for it.

Step 2: Start Reading The Bible To Your Toddler

You may be asking yourself where to start with the toddler Bible.

The best place to start reading at the beginning. There is no need to have all kinds of materials either to create this special time with your toddler. In fact, follow these points below, and you’ll experience a beautiful time together:

  • Read one story a day!
  • Interact with your toddler about the story. You can do this easily by pointing at the pictures in the story talking about what they see. (ie. Is the coat red? Is he happy or sad? Where do you think she’s going to go?)
  • No need to ask your toddler questions about the Bible stories. Toddlers are too young for question and answer at this point, as it relates to the story itself. Though, their age is wonderful for sharing information and age-appropriate questions, like those listed in the example above.
  • Create a routine, if you can. If you’re able to, read the Bible at the same time every day to create a routine. If not, that’s okay, too. It’s not necessary, but it’s nice to add-on if you can as routines help children anticipate what time it is and what’s next, which is the advantage of routines.
  • Give yourself grace. Toddlers are also learning and exploring a lot, among finding boundaries, and feeling a wide array of emotions. If you have littles at home, don’t push things. Often we are too hard on ourselves, especially in the season of having young kids. Do the best you can and God will fill any gap because He cares for you and your precious children.

Adding Bible Learning Components For Toddlers

If you’ve wondered how to start teaching your toddler the Bible, it really doesn’t need to be complicated or filled with lots of things. That said, maybe over time, as you develop a routine of reading the Bible with your toddler, you may want to add a few more Bible learning components.

Below are some great add-ons to your toddler Bible reading time:

  • Prayer – say the simplest prayer out loud together with your toddler. It can be the same prayer every day. Toddlers are really great at catching onto things very quickly.
    • Before you pray ask your toddler to:
      • Clasp their hands – so they don’t touch other things (you must also do this so your toddler will follow what you model)
      • Close their eyes – so they don’t look around (and yet they probably will)
      • And say, “Thank You Lord for the Bible which helps me know You more. In Jesus Name, Amen!”
  • Bible songs for kids – they are a great way for kids to remember Bible stories. If the Bible songs have actions, that’s a bonus! Here’s a link to YouTube for free Bible songs for kids.
  • Bible colouring pages – toddlers can add a colour sheet, which also helps them build motor skills. Consider colouring books to go with the toddler Bible of your choice, like:
  • Memorize scriptures – kids can memorize things easily. What they need though to succeed in this, is repetition; it’s that easy!

If you’re looking raise kids who put their trust in the Lord; who depend on Him; who hear from Him; and who live their life by faith doing all that God has called them to do, the place to start with the Bible.

Nuture what you do with your kids in your own prayer time with the Lord and see what God will do and how He’ll lead and guide you in your efforts to share the Bible with your kids.

Enjoy this precious Bible reading time together with your toddler.
