Hi! I’m Courtney from Faith For The Littles and I’m so honored today to be guest posting for Abi! She has some great things to say about being an example of the Fruits of the Spirit for her children and this excites me to no end. Today I’d like to share a resource for being intentional with our children in teaching them what it really means to live out the fruits every single day.
For a simple cooking activity, I had several bowls of the fruits listed under “Make-It Monday.” Each bowl was covered in foil and labeled with the Fruit of the Spirit it represented. I had Little Man decorate paper bowls with our names (one for each member of the family). As I called out each Fruit of the Spirit, he would add it to a large mixing bowl while we gave an example of a way to show that fruit. For example, for lemons (peace), he said he would say one of his memory verses before he went to bed to remember that God is always with him. After we added all the fruits to the big bowl and mixed them up, we divided it into the separate bowls for the family. We talked about how the Holy Spirit gives us the fruits and fills us up (the fruit filled the bowls with our names).
Which of these activities would your kids enjoy the most?
Courtney is “Honey” to her husband and “Mommy” to two crazy and LOUD boys. Little Man is almost seven and Baby Boy is seven months. She taught in the classroom for eight years. God has amazingly placed her in a position now where she can teach from home, and she’s loving the extra time with her kiddos! she has a Bachelors Degree in Early Childhood Education and a Masters Degree in Reading Intervention. Courtney loves the Lord and loves to read! She intertwines the two into special moments for you and your little ones at Faith For The Littles.
