Do You Read to Your Child?

It has been proven time and again that the benefits of reading to children are exponential. When you sit down and read a book to your child there is a bonding that takes place that is irreplaceable. It is a soothing and loving thing to spend that one-on-one time with your child. Reading is also calming to the spirit. It settles you down, lets you relax, and if you're doing it at nighttime like we do, it is a great way to bring positive closure to the day.

Vacation Bible School

The welcoming stage for the kiddos.

Did you go to Vacation Bible School as a youth?  I went every summer, and while I can't remember everything about it, I do remember a lot of things, including not only the activities, but the rooms, the table always set up with cookies and little paper cups of Kool-Aid in the main hall, some of the kids who were going too, the songs we sang, and the Bible verses we learned.
