One of Ellie's favorite things is our family "Bible Time." As Chase and I set goals for this year, we decided it was time to incorporate family time each day where we pray, sing and read the Bible. Ellie is old enough now that she enjoys hearing Bible stories and will ask for "Bible Time" several times a day! I love her enthusiasm. Shouldn't we all be that excited to pray to our Creator and study His Word?!
Since she has been learning about Daniel in her Sunday Bible Class, she requests we read about Daniel and the lions all.the.time. I'm trying to expand our Bible stories and was so thankful to find this blog for teaching children. I just finished making the visuals for telling the story of Jonah. All the directions are at their website. I laminated mine so that they will last longer (sorry for the blurry picture!). They even have a song that goes with it that Ellie likes to sing. I love using different visuals for our story time and this is a great addition. Obviously as the girls grow, our "Bible Time" will transition to topics relevant to their age and spiritual growth. As for now, I'm on the lookout for more visual aids for Bible stories :)
