Sweet Grandchild Story - Pretend to be KK!

Don't you just love it when your grandchildren copy you? Well, I suppose we love it based on what they are "copying"! On one of my blogs (About the Children's Department) one of my readers shared the following "sweet granddaughter story", which I'm delighted to share with you today!

Birthday Joy!


How Do You Celebrate Birthdays?

Today is my grandson Caleb's birthday and we are celebrating with pizza, cup cakes, cake and orange juice (his picks!) and then water balloons, squirt guns and basically getting soaked! Since my grandsons love to play in the water and here in Michigan we have lots of water, they will enjoy the birthday party fun!

What do you do to celebrate your grandchildren's/children's birthdays? Do you celebrate with your family? Do you let your grandchild/child pick the menu? What do you do?

As he read, he got a big smile on his face when he realized I wrote about him and his brothers.

I enjoyed hearing him read my book; it was a treat to see and hear his reaction!

Help Them Experience It!

Part of what we do to pass on a heritage of faith to our sweet grandchildren is to help bring the teachings and lessons of the Bible into our grandchildren's everyday lives. When the hear about the Bible event where Josiah chose to read God's Word and obey it, they need to understand they can make this choice, too! When they hear about how Caleb chose to trust having God on his side was better than being "giants", they need to understand how they have God on their "side", too! When they hear about how Daniel chose to talk with God even when it meant he could become the main dish on the lion's menu for supper, they need to understand they can talk to God about anything and everything at any time, too!

My sweet grandson Caleb learned and experienced this recently. He is almost four years old - his birthday is tomorrow! His parents and we have been working for some time on potty training, but Caleb just has not been terribly interested. So, las…
