Nevaeh's treasure box

So most days, Nevaeh and I cuddle up on the couch and read from 'mommies big girl bible'. I find a verse every week to read with her for that week and then we do an activity for that verse.

This doesn't happen everyday. I'm not a morning person, and we do all her 'school' stuff in the morning and it really is hard for me to concentrate. What's going to happen when we actually start REAL school? My poor kids.... they are in God's hands... ;)

Last week we went over Luke 12:34. We read the whole passage together, so she gets more of the story, but focus on one or two specific verses.

Luke 12:34, which is also Matt. 6:21 "For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also."

Our activities or crafts after reading are not extravagant. They are simple and made from what I can find. Most of the time, they get thrown away the next day because Gray gets to them and tares them to shreds.

So we talked about this verse for a little bit and I asked Nevaeh, "What is your treasure?" She of course answered with, "my family and friends". We talked a little more and I brought up the verse we read the week before. Matthew 22:37-39 "love the Lord, your God with all your heart....." and so on. After reading that again she said, "God is my treasure, and Jesus."

That made my heart jump for joy! She IS getting it! Not by my understanding, because I tried talking to her, but through God's word she understood! :) Boy, do I love God and His word!

This is what we made...

My little girl is growing up! 

Here is a fun video of Gray walking like a pro.... and his grunting, well it's his talking.
